Who Dat, Who do Dat?
My assignment: to write a brief summary for each of the five chapters in our “Human Systems and Homeostasis” unit. This is around the time when I discovered that there is something deeply, pathologically wrong with me.
Generic class assignments like this prove to be ideal litmus tests for a person’s social ability; admittedly, in past grades I chose to ignore their sobering results. And though I have not consciously worked against an urge to be completely odd and bizarre in high school, I believe that the socially unaware part of me and the part of me that has some sense of decency came to a mutual understanding that normalcy is probably the best policy.
Or, maybe, struck by the bright lights of big people school, I was just too stunned to revert quickly to my wacky ways. And this is how I have come to pass as “normal”.
Neither inhibition kept me in check today, however, while I submitted an audio file to my Biology teacher entitled “I Clearly Have no Concept of this Assignment”, under the description “There are no words to explain why I felt this to be an idea worth pursuing”.
I have included the file below.
