They eventually backed down and I never had a problem with them thereafter. I guess I earned their respect. "I could take a punch." Little did they know that the coat I was wearing had enough insulated padding that it absorbed 95% of their punches, and I hardly felt a thing.

I never told anyone this story, not until today, not even my mom and dad. I realize now, it wasn’t the right thing to do. It could have ended badly. Again, I was lucky. Many more like me were/are not. If YOU are ever bullied, get help and tell someone!

I'm 51 years young now and still a little overweight. I still don't wear name brand clothing, and although a slightly different style, I still carry a green, soft-sided briefcase. And, yes, bullies are still in my life, only this time, just in a book that I wrote; a story that I hope everyone will take the time to read. ASH, like a Tattoo (current version). An extended version is slated for release in 2016 with the NEW cover depeicted here on this site.
