daily diminishing (day 141)

In seventh grade I won 2nd place in the limbo contest during Field Day at our school. I had never won any type of competitive event and I can almost still remember the feeling of “winning” and how everyone thought differently of me because I was a “winner”. As a child, I was often last chosen for dodge ball, or the other team activities at school. I very much remember the feeling of standing last with both teams arguing over who had to take me. That was second grade. After winning in limbo, I also went on to win first place in a sit up competition.
