Bullies Have Cooties. Yeah. I Went There *and* Did That.

Christmas was good. I’m wearing a lovely new coat that is both lovely and new. I have a TARDIS necklace from a wonderful sister. Now I just need new ear buds as I accidentally destroyed mine. Oops.
I would give you a CHRISTMAS IS OVER playlist, but I’m feeling lazy. I will tell you a story instead.
I have a strange face. I mean, I’m not ugly. I might get the occasional pimple, get a bad hair cut or feel fat sometimes, but I don’t think I’m ugly. I don’t really think that anyone is ugly actually (call me crazy). But I do have a strange face.
My eyes are somewhat small, my mouth is a bit crooked, my face is in no way symmetrical, and my chin is not the average chin. I have heard it described as ‘butt chin’ but that just seems mean. You could say I have a dimple, but I know what a dimple is (a bit of muscle stuck to bone–ironically, anything but perfection) and it is not that. Personally, I think of it as my chin. I mean, seriously. It’s just my chin guys. Get over it.
But alas. People are mean. Also teenage girls. Teenage girls are mean. Trust me, I was one when I was eleven. I know.
So anyway, twice over the last couple of Beauty practices, I have been fun of for my chin. I guess it was sort of on topic–we were talking about Gaston’s cleft chin–but Goodness Gracious people! Leave my chin alone! It’s my chin! If I find it imperfect, I can call it out if I want to. YOU CAN’T BECAUSE IT’S NOT YOUR CHIN. GEEZ.
One time my aunt told me, “Sarah. You can’t make fun of people for the things they were born with. Their hair color–unless died? Not their chose. height or facial features? Not their chose. Clothing and bad haircuts? You can make fun of them for that. But not things they had no chose in.”
A while that advice is absolutely horrible to tell an 8-year-old, I see her point. I did not choose this chin, it was given to me! I didn’t choose to have a chin with a dimple like center! And even if I did, it was my decision and you don’t have the right to call me out on it because *gasp* I might like my face just the way it is all average and stuff. SO LEAVE MY CHIN ALONE YOU MEANY FACE.
Yep. That’s mostly it.
