When I was younger, maybe sixth grade, my mother had my sisters and I be cheerleaders. My step-sister was made to be a cheerleader. My little sister? Maybe. Me? Well, I only wanted to for the cute uniforms, but we got ugly hand-me-down bulky sweaters. I looked like Sandy from Grease, but not as pretty.
Anyways, at the end of the season they held a huge award ceremony. I wore this beautiful white dress with extreme detailing at the bodice. I had a knee length coat and I wore bright red shoes. I was eleven, okay? And I thought I looked pretty great and I'm pretty sure my mom helped dress me. I was in the bathroom at the ceremony and all of these eleven year old mean girls were in there laughing. Laughing at me. When I was walking out, she said, "YOU'RE DUMB! RED DOESN'T GO WITH WHITE. HA! YOU LOOK SO STOOOOPID. RED AND WHITE. HAHAHAHAHAHA. UGGGGG-LYYYY. LIKE YOU! "
I learned a valuable lesson in that bathroom and I never cheered again. That's when I decided to wear whatever I wanted to wear because mean girls will always be mean girls and red and white totally go together. It's part of the American flag, right? Plus I heard she never made it to college and has a lot of kids. Karma is real guys, really real.
