school started four weeks ago and ff’s teacher had a get to know you questionnaire for her students. ff wasn’t overly transparent in his answers – he gave nothing away. he most certainly wasn’t going allow this new teacher to get to know him that easily – she was going to have to work for it. it seems though that by the last question she had worn him down. he couldn’t help sharing, being vulnerable – so with painful honesty he answered the final question – “what nickname would you like to go by?” ff’s answer – flame farter. makes a mother proud.
