nerdy kid

As a quiet youngster in school I seemed to attract a parade of weirdo kids to me I didn't want to talk to. This is one of them I remember, right down to the his 80s short shorts. Even in the 80s I thought they were too short. This kid was a know it all and was picked on by everyone and I probably shunned him at some point.

I always felt sorry for him, and in the back of my head knew revenge would be his and he would make millions of dollars by inventing a world wide communication network (or something). Years later in my 20s I saw him, fat and with pony tail, working the register at some fast food place. I hope in the years since he has had his revenge.

UPDATED: Now with new faces!!

Hi how are you?

I was looking through your blog, and I found it interesting, and inspiring to me, so I thought why not leave you a comment.

I too have a blog that I use out of Southern California here in San Diego.

Mostly it is a collection of artistic expression, and I have many friends with the same interests, maybe you can become my friend, and follow, and I can also follow you, if that is okay.

Well I hope to hear from you soon, and or read about you….LOL

This is inspiring to me, Brian. I wish I could draw all the nerds and dorks and geeks and dweebs that I went to high school with, except that I'm friends with most of them on facebook now.

Oh well.

The kid had Glasses. He was probably attracted to you by your Glasses. I had to wear thick "Coke bottle Mr. Magoo len's" Glasses. I thought if I got the "Fishtail" Sparkley Frames, I wouldn't look so nerdy. I tried to make friends w people who wore Glasses, because I thought they would accept me has a friend better.

Hey Jess, are you that one guy from that one time downtown? Have we me before?

Good theory Fran, but I didn't wear glasses at the time. Ive just always attracted the type of people who grow up and awkwardly talk to you while in line at the bank.

Corey- that would be an interesting experiment. to try and draw every nerd/geek/dork from every stage of your life.

Thanks Ryan and Sam
