Out of sync

How can you be subjected to peer pressure when you don’t have any peers?

    The tracking of my father’s birth is rather like your life. He was the oldest of his cousins, and an only child. His surviving cousins just don’t know the details because they were not around yet.

    About the school thing: Seems to me, back in the day (even still to an extent when I was a kid, but it never happened to me), schools were more willing to skip ahead a kid who seemed to have mastered the material and was bored in their age-group classes.

    (I earned good grades and mastered the material, but was waaaaaaaaay emotionally immature, and they may have noticed that, and that kept them from even considering skipping. Or maybe I wasn’t the egghead all the other little kids told me I was.)
