Hi! I’m Jack. And I’m invisible. Of course, I know that I am not literally invisible. But basically, my whole life is an exercise in proving to me that I am the least seen and most likely to be ignored person ever to walk the earth.
Don’t believe me? Just wait.
About me. I’m the middle child in my family. Good start to proving my argument, huh?
My older brother Jacob is a genius. Or just about. He’s in ninth grade and taking AP Calculus. I don’t exactly know what that means, but when my mom tells somebody about it, they always react the same way:
Then they turn to look at me and ask if I like math so much. Math is okay, but I am not great at it. It takes me work to learn it, whereas it seems to come so easily to my brother.
Did you know that he took the SAT in eighth grade and scored a 790 on the math section? He actually knows what problems he got wrong because his calculator was in radian mode, instead of degrees mode.
What? Are these words even in English?
It’s easy to see how I could get lost in such a huge shadow, right?
But if you don’t believe me yet, just hold on…
