A Beautiful Nerd

Remember that girl in grade 6 who’s head you used to pound with chalkbrush erasers?

The one with the funny name whose lunch smelled.

The geek who would sit alone in the corner of the cafeteria, eating fried bologna and chocolate milk; stopping every now and then to peer nervously over her thick Coca-Cola bottle eyeglasses as if on constant alert for any incoming spitballs?

Remember her?

You flung mud at her once and poisoned her goldfish that she brought in for ‘Pet Day’–then laughed when she tried to revive it with mouth-to-mouth.

That’s how she got the name Fishlips.

Ah, that nerdy girl…even if you don’t remember her, she remembers you.

  1. I can always count on you guys (first-magazine and affictedyard) to put out dark skinned beauty. I know its supposed to be “out of many one people” but the local magazines, commercials and beauty contests are always trying to overdose us on light skinned girls. Keep snapping!

    man all i know is i’ve been a HUGE fan of women of color all these years (got bored with the too many white girls in the media all my life….zzzzz)

    keep posting more and more beautiful women of color – so many treasures out there we’d like to see more of!
