.I was in my final year of Junior High. We had these Sex Education Classes. The topic was illegitimate births and one of my friends, Basil blurted; “Like Jason.”
I exclaimed; “Jason was illegit?”
Everyone looked at me as if I came from another planet. And Steve said, “That’s why Silver dumped his mother…”
The teacher tried to get us back on track, but I wasn’t listening. When the bell rang I went to Steve, who thought that ‘Everybody knew.”
Everybody might have known, except me.
And Everybody knew that Jason’s mother didn’t leave town for some new job, she left in humiliation.
