My Friend & Me

Time: Early evening

Setting: Grabbing a snack with a close friend

Me: When you hit puberty, wasn’t it weird for you to have hair growing out of your cheeks and under and over your lip?

Friend: What do you mean?

Me: I mean you spent the first twelve or thirteen years of your life with a hairless face before you grew your fuzz. Didn’t it feel strange to have a bristly face?

Friend: Well, didn’t it feel weird when two lumps of fatty flesh came out of your chest?

Me: *laughs*

    hehehe thing is, neither of you got their answer.

    here's how I remember the events as they occured to me. The fuzz came out very slowly and gradually, so you could say it snuck up on me. there was a time when I'd only shave under the sideburns. so it REALLY snuck up on me, I thought I was just behind on the trimming.

    princess: I think those feelings that came about during that awkward are mostly in the back of our minds and I really don't want to remember how difficult it was because really, when you think about it, it was sort of weird to deal with the whole "growing up" experience. Personally, I think the attention I got threw me off and I felt...tainted? :P~~

    mishmisha: Hehe yup!

    familiar stranger: Haha :P I think for guys the most noticeable thing would be their voice. I remember we used to tease some of the guys in our class when they would talk in a squeaky voice one second and would sound like Schwarzenegger in the other :P

    heroine: :))

    flamongoliya: :D

    3abeer: I guess these posts come from the most ordinary and somewhat redundant every day experiences :P

    :D cracked me up!!

    it's weird i never actually thought about any of this.. i remember being jealous of all the other girls in the PE changing rooms cause while they were all curvy and womanly while i was flat and still boyish...

    so i guess when it did happen i was happy to finally join the team ;p

    CPanic: I so relate to your locker room experience. I remember when I was a ninth grader I was still a stick and I saw the 12th graders waltzing around, all feminine and crap, and I used to think,"And me!" Hehe, good thing I caught up :P~~

    bo_sale7: 3alaina oo 3alaik oo mashkoor oo matga9er! Inshallah soon eltakharoj :))

    fuzzy wuzzy may be fuzzy: Ayamik sa3eeda oo t3oodoona inshallah :))

    Sedna: Ayamich sa3eeda :))

    Temi: Long time :) Well, he sorta had a implied point...growing a beard or a breast is may have been awkward at first but it's somewhat natural and meant to be I suppose :)
