You know, I hate to say it, but the older I get, the more I realize we all are pretty much whatever we were in high school. Sure, many of us get more productive, find a talent or a trade, live good lives but if you’re shy in high school or unpopular, chances are you’ll never shake off whatever it was that was holding you back.
That’s not to say it isn’t possible. Many have tried. Many have succeeded. Often, you just have to get yourself into a better environment with more positive people. Or perhaps you need to make a big life change.
Still, poor Buford. Those prom shenanigans changed his life and he was never able to get over it, was he?
