Here's the story
It was 2nd grade. I won a meaningless competition; won the right to lead the milk line into the cafeteria. Little did I suspect that line of children would become a line of betrayal.
Noon. We form up. I move to the front. Teacher ushers me aside. Lisa will head the line today.
Anger. I storm out of the room, and out of the building. It took a couple of hours for the police to find me.
Don't worry, I had the last laugh. My parents were furious that it took so long to realize I had left. They transfered the whole family out of the school.
A. Message first
B. Wait for me to hit you up.
If you choose option A, you'll get an almost guaranteed reply, you'd break gender conformity, and I'll send you a gif of cute baby animals if you ask. So go for option A!
