Graduation Speaker

So there was this kid in high school.  He had pimples and was kind of fat.  He
was nervous around girls. He definitely was not one of the cool kids. He didn’t
have a ton of friends and did weird stuff like go home and put his TV on a
channel full of static and make pretend he was announcing sporting events,
using the static as fake crowd noise.

Weird kid.

Today, that kid’s high school is holding its graduation ceremony. And almost
40 years after he graduated, they’ve asked him to come back to be the
commencement speaker.

That kid is me.
