Anachronism (noun): an error in chronology; a person or thing that’s chronologically out of place. Write a story in which a person or thing is out of place, or recount a time when you felt out of place.
I was called ‘bean stalk’ or ‘Wilt’, for Wilt Chamberlain. I was always getting the question; ‘How’s the weather up there?’ I stood out like a ‘sore thumb’. My self esteem was destroyed at an early age. I felt like an oddly colored and lonely giraffe.
As a grown up, it still hasn’t changed. Other adults often ask me how tall I am, but the kids still ask me, ‘How’s the weather up there?’ They would probably still call me ‘Wilt’, but most of today’s kids have no idea who he is.
I think that has a lot to do with my PTSD and Social Anxiety.
