Why I Am the Way I Am
Paulette Perhach

It’s my Dads fault….. I argued land bridge theory in Gr 7….. Plate Tectonics in Gr 8, (that came with a suspension) I told the teacher my Dad was way smarter that he was. Nothing new for me….. I was kicked out of Gr 1 for telling the teacher there were 4 states of matter. And I knew when I was 5 the Sunday school teacher was full of crap……

I lost him 2 years ago. There is nothing but a huge hole left in my chest. It’s too soon to laugh at the memories.

Your description of your Dad gave me some hope. One day I’ll be able to look back and smile instead of crying when I think of him.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
