On the back white board, under Things to Think About for your Science Project, an eighth grade girl had written, “I think about giving head all the time.”
I vaguely wondered about her misplaced modifier. Did she think all the time about giving head, or did she think about this activity becoming her primary occupation?
What bothered me most was the self-esteem of a little girl who finds herself obsessing over how to please others because she thinks it makes her desirable. It made me sad.
I looked at Marty while I erased.
“What can ya do?” he asked.
