Ole' Honest Abe
Okay I know you are tired of hearing about this disease I have and I'm tired of talking about it. (MDS) Just want to share this with you first. A woman on Facebook whom I have known a long time questioned my honesty about it saying if you have it followed by ???. It made me angry, but at the same time it made me chuckle and think I really don't know people I have only met on the internet and they don't know me. In high school I was dubbed as Ole Honest Abe. In my small country school the Principal and Superintendent both had to teach classes besides their duties as the positions they held. This made them late to class often as they had to meet with a parent or some other appointment leaving the class alone. One day the Principal was late to our senior history class. The whole room was teeming with noise and talking when he finally walked into class. His words were okay everyone who was talking raise their hand. My little hand slowly raised and when I looked around there was not another hand up. My classmate and neighbor started calling me Ole Honest Abe.
