My husband has four brothers and the youngest of them (who is 28) told my 10 year old son that he should pretend he's not smart so people don't expect as much from him and he can get easier work at school. What a genius.
Agreed! :) I was the nerd and my life has turned out far better than all the 'cool kids' who bullied me for being the short, skinny, smart girl. And, I know it's mean, but, it makes me smile. *blushes*
Being a "Geek" is cool in its own right! Some of the greatest people in history didn't follow the "cool kids" and this world is better for it!
