Nerds Considered Slick



Katie Bohrer and Kira Simpson

Memories came flooding back…

This picture was taken Monday, May 25, 2009 at the annual picnic for the Scripps National Spelling Bee. When I saw the girls it brought back memories. It was me, such a nerd when I was young. What am I saying, some still consider me dorky.

A few of the kids stayed at the hotel to study but most never miss the picnic. They say it’s the one place and time where they fit in. “It’s really nice to be among people who actually get your jokes.”

They can be cool, at least for now. Someone wearing a T-shirt that says “I love nerds” is considered slick.

Were you ever a nerd? Are you still?
