American Nerd

Day 198

I have two nieces.  The older is more studious and loves reading and quiet time.  The younger is a fashionista, rather social, and a cheerleader.  I love them both dearly, but you might be able to guess which one I identify with more.  My sister-in-law is a teacher, and the coach of her school’s science Olympiad team.

SIL: Dad’s busy on Saturday so you have to come with me to science Olympiad.
N2: I don’t want to.
SIL: Come on, we need a cheerleader.
N2: I’m NOT cheering for nerds.

Ah, teenagers.
