Silent James in school. School was a nightmare. I used to wear the same clothes everyday, I never paid attention but my classmates were horrified by my lack of style/cleanliness. One day when I was 8, I got a whole new outfit: a black turtle neck and black and white striped pants. I also got a brand new hair-do reminiscent of Eraserhead, spiked up. When I got to school my teacher exclaimed in front of the class “Lookin’ SHARP, James!” Everyone was paying me compliments, even a particularly stuck up girl said “Finally, something SENSIBLE!” I was so happy to get this attention, I got greedy and wanted more. So, I slept in my clothes and didn’t wash my hair and showed up the next day in the same outfit- expecting the same attentional outpour… it never came. I also had feathers and dust stuck in my hair from sleeping on it.
