In 5th grade I was walking home with my friend Lucy and a car pulled over and a man told Lucy he would give her some candy if she would get in his car. Lucy was blonde and already budding breasts. Me, jew-fro and flat chest.

We ran back to school, which was closer than home, to tell the principal. The response made us feel like WE had done something wrong.

I so love your writing.
