This is not one of those stories where the supermodel tells you she was home alone with her cat on prom night. I did go to prom and I kissed a boy. But at the same time, for most of my childhood, I was the kid in the corner of the room curled up with a book, not the one joining organized sports teams or taping up teen idol posters. I can't remember if the term "nerd" was alive in the early 70’s, but you get the picture. Drawing horses and reading were my two favorite past times. Let's just say that doesn't set you up for a membership in the Gossip Girl cool club.
