The Unpopular Kid

I had never been a "popular" kid. (Those that know me are nodding their heads right now.)  In Jr. High, I was that awkward kid with a bit of an egotistical chip on his shoulder.  No, it wasn't because I was totally ripped, good looking, and great with the ladies.  No, I had gotten good...
