Hey Kids!

Dale, the Whale, was what kids called me when I was in elementary school. And from then on I thought I was walking blubber. But I found out if I laughed at the stuff other kids said, it was a lot better than getting mad. It also saved me from having to fight, which I didn't like at all. I was a pretty good student but not so great at math or PE. But I learned to like both (kind of) when I figured out they were sort of useful and not just punishment teachers handed out.

I learned to see the happy side of stuff from my mom and when she died, I thought I'd never laugh again. But I found my chuckle again hidden in the pages of books. I was amazed that the people who wrote those books knew what I was feeling and had put my life into words.

It's your turn and you don't even have to wait in line! I'd love to hear your comments and questions. But ask a parent or teacher first.
