JLP, Shy as a Lass

"We are always misunderstood."

-- JLP

Were you a tall, attractive, shy girl in high school?  And did people consider you snobby, snotty, or cold?

Whoa. Are you hitting on me?

This is extremely intriguing.

You already know I am short, attractive and boisterous. I was probably considered snobby or snotty, at least by some, but never cold.

I suppose I was, though I didn't think so at the time. (Attractive, not tall and shy, I already knew that stuff). Probably people thought I was a snob but I was just pathologically shy. I've since learned how to hide it better.

What is funny is when you find out later who had a crush on you during that era, when you thought you were terminally unloveable. Why the hell didn't they say or do anything then?

Hey Stew --

Wonderful to know that you were never cold, especially in Michigan where I would have *always* been cold .

And what a fun coincidence about your initials ;-) But this JLP is a diffrn't one. I wonder if MKW will read this and notice?

Glad you caught on to the initials trickery! The middle name is either Lynn or Lynne, depending on whether you ask my parents or my passport.
