I know, I know, I didn’t post yesterday. I don’t really have an excuse, except to say I was really tired, I had an episode of True Blood to catch-up on, and a certain book that involves A Dance with Dragons came out.
So, now I guess now I should probably transition to some nerd story. When thinking of nerd stories, it’s always best to start in the beginning, and in the beginning there was sex. I was raised pretty conservatively and my school didn’t teach sex ed, and while my friends and I sometimes secretly talked about how sex happened, our ideas weren’t exactly all the way there (somehow I pictured that the man and woman would have to lay in opposite directions to get the deed done).
I’ve been a bit of a nerd my whole life, so when my mom would drive into town on errands I would ask to get dropped off at the public library where I’d happily spend several hours browsing books. I was probably about 8 or 9 when I first noticed a certain section of the library.
And that’s why we should have sex ed in schools, so you don’t have to find out like I did – alone in a library with a graphic book. It was awkward.
