“As If It Were a Person”: The Sally J. Nordan Story.

Written by sally @ 11:31 am — Section: Uncategorized

I love the internet deeply for many reasons, but here is one: the internet allows you to talk to people you used to know with minimal effort, and then they can tell you weird stuff about yourself that you have thankfully forgotten, but now remember.

Case in point: this boy I knew in middle and high school reminded me yesterday that in our 8th grade earth science class, I apparently used to talk to a stapler “as if it were a person.” You know, I could’ve lived a pretty full and happy life without that knowledge. But now that nugget of information is back and cannot be extracted, and so I have made myself a name tag that I have to wear the rest of my life that says TALKS TO STAPLERS.
