Nerd Quirk

I couldn't find a place to credit the graphic as this one seems invalid.

This was me. I would get all my work done in class so I could read. One of my elementary school teachers once called my mom because I was always reading, even though I'd finished my work.
My mom's reaction: "You have a child who wants to read and you're upset about it?"
My teacher's response: "To the other children it looks like she isn't doing her work."
My mom: "Just send her to the library when she's done with her work and let her read."

I don't think it will surprise anyone to know that my favorite elementary school teacher was the school librarian.

Even today, I have a mindset that if I get my work done (job, housework, whatever) then I can read.

What about you?
