Sticking With Stereotypes
Oh I know who you are. You’re one of those nerdy types!
Why yes, I am a nerd.
I’m part of orchestra and the robotics team.
I don’t mind going to school after hours.
I get good grades;
I enjoy writing essays;
I frequent gaming and comic book stores.
I would be happy to talk about
which Star Trek is the best,
or get excited about low gas prices
and fractal calendars.
I love fantasy and sci-fi
and have played some D&D,
I like wearing make-up and going to dances
and I text people a lot.
Wait, that doesn’t seem right.
I love race cars; I love camping;
I love cookouts at the lake.
This doesn’t make sense!
I’ve been in plays.
I don’t really like public speaking.
Oh, I’m sorry.
Do I not fit into your categories?
