What is life?  I ask myself. It  can either be hard or easy. Right? Or can it be unforgiving. Or pleasurable. Or hurtful. Or normal. Anyway, what is normal? Who is normal? Me? You? Anyone? How do you act normal? Like me? Like you?  All of this occurred to me at the kitchen table while I was doing a word problem about school lunch.

“Mom, if someones asks you to be normal, what do you act like, dress like, or be  like in general?” I asked.

“Why? Did something happen in school today?” Mom asked suspiciously.

“No. Nothing happened. It was really ordinary. Really. Really.” I assured her through my lie.

But something did happen today. The “Cool” girls said everyone had to be normal in order to be in their “Cool Group.” Then I asked ,  “Exactly how do you act normal? Not all of us are fit for the cheerleading team you know, Erin.”

“Well then,  too bad for them. They can’t be in MY group! Really Maddie, to be normal just act like me, DUH! Anymore COMMENTS?” Erin replied almost laughing. “GREAT! Remember cheer tryouts are next week after school. Monday. I am the judge. AGAIN! Captain four years in a row. Why wouldn’t I be!” Erin tossed her hair and zoomed away with her posse.
