Fourth Grade

Fourth Grade.

Catholic school.

"Cum bubble."

The girl with the big glasses called me that.

I asked her what it meant and she laughed.

At home, I asked my mom and she yelled at me.

I asked my best friend, who was in 5th grade, and he told me I wasn’t mature enough to know yet.

I don’t think any of them knew what it meant.


Yesterday, I read the phrase “post-porn” in The Atlantic

and I didn’t know what that meant and I don’t think they do either.
