Jared Dillian writes: Back when I was a sailor, I was bored all the time.
I was deck watch officer, standing watch on the bridge. We were miles offshore, hadn’t seen another ship in days, and I’d check the radar, then walk out on the bridge wing and scan the horizon with my binoculars, go back and talk to the quartermaster, check the chart… Zzzzzzz. Mind-crushing boredom.Read full article... Read full article...

It wasn’t bad, though. In 9th grade, I transformed from a little pork chop into a tall, decent-looking kid. I had lots of friends in high school, and life was good.
Before that, though, it was tough. I put up with my share of indignities. One summer, in 7th grade, I was sent to gifted and talented camp or, more specifically, the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth (CTY), where I could be around other geeks like me.Read full article... Read full article...

Jared Dillian writes: When I was 11, my grandmother liked to hang out in Bee Bee’s Dairy and smoke cigarettes and drink coffee.
