Memoirs of a Hayseed Physicist by Peter Martel


Part 13:
In The Beginning:
I had always come first in every grade, up to and including, the tenth grade. In that grade, I remember some very good looking and capable girls students, who couldn’t seem to beat me in the scholastic arena. Looking back on those times, I now suspect that the nuns had a tendency to mark me higher because I was a boy. I was never abused by these dears but for some reason they seemed to take great pleasure in running their hands through my thick mane of black hair.
