Whew! Now that I'm done talking about the conference, I'm ready for a break. I haven't told a story in a while. I think I'll share the most embarrassing thing I've ever done.
When I was a freshman in high school, I had to take PE (which sucked, by the way). In the locker room, my friends and I were getting dressed in our gym clothes when I saw something shocking.
One of my close friends had long scars all over her body. They were in neat rows, so they were obviously inflicted. I found them on her back where she couldn’t reach, so I knew she hadn’t done it to herself.
I was so upset that I confronted her about it right then and there, with her shirt off in front of her locker. “Who did that to you?” I demanded, loud enough for everyone to hear.
She looked bewildered. "Did what?"
"The scars. Tell me who gave you those scars right now!"
A friend grabbed my arm and pulled me aside. She explained to me that when a person gains a lot of weight, they get something called “stretch marks.”
