In eighth grade, in 2018, Tasha the cheerleader tweeted a photo of me (of when I’d worn those hip, Nineties-style, acid-washed jeans) and #DoryIsAFatass to the whole school. As a result, I got lots of support, and Tasha got suspended for three days. When she returned, she told me “I’m sorry.”
“Apology accepted,” I said. We never spoke again.
After she graduated high school, she joined the Army and got her legs blown off in Afghanistan.
God needs to develop a sense of proportion. Also, when will we get out of Afghanistan? Does that make me a wimp for asking?
