  • Life With Boys: Tessing Around

    Posted on 03/11/2013 by saidbyjohn

    The Life With Boys episode This Time the Problem is With Dad and Not With Boys sent me flying back to when I was an eleven-year-old troublemaker. Sneaking around seems cool, but getting caught SUCKS, and if you don't get caught (which was never the case for me) the guilt will eat you up -- ask Tess!

    Jonathan, TeenNick intern
    When I was a kid, my parents and grandparents bragged about how smart I was to, basically, everyone! There wasn't one grocery store visit that didn't end in my mother or grandmother telling a random shopper how much of a genius I was. As the years passed, I started to believe I really was a genius. In sixth grade, I stopped doing homework altogether. When my grandfather asked why I wasn't working on anything, I told him my teacher was rewarding me for doing so well in class. He'd nod and say 'okay,' but it turned out he was the real genius.

    My grandfather ended up calling my school and asking my teacher why she wasn't assigning homework and she snitched me out! She told him I hadn't turned in any homework in weeks and that I claimed to be forgetting it at home. My grandfather didn't punish me or anything; he didn't even tell me he spoke to my teacher. He just picked me up from school that day and didn't say a word to me. He didn't speak to me for four days (these were the most awkward car rides, ever). I was such a talker when I was younger (still am) and nothing made me feel worse than being ignored. My grandfather was well aware of this.

    It might not seem like a harsh punishment, but after a day or two of this perpetual silence, I thought I would literally die of grief. When I figured out what was going on, I had a breakdown in the school parking lot. My grandfather hugged me and told me never to lie to him again. I must say, that whole "I'm not mad at you, I'm disappointed" bit works every time! Maybe Tess is the genius though, because she was smart enough to rat herself out! What do you think? Tell us about a time you've lied to your parents and if it was worth it!

  • Life With Boys: Who Tessed?

    Life With Boys

    The Life with Boys episode "Social Death with Boys" made me laugh, cry (kidding), and question why I didn't end up in an Ivy League pre-med program, sorry mom. Though I never suffered the trauma of farting on camera like Tess, it made me reminisce about an awkward time for everyone: senior year of high school.

    I attended an all boys' private high school with a mandatory dress code: school sweater, dress pants, shirt and tie. Despite our already spiffy dress code, on Fridays I tried to dress extra nice, because on these days I'd walk across the street to the all girls' school with my friends to scout prom dates.

    Jonathan, TeenNick intern
    Me, my sister, and the famous pants (pre-rip)
    So a Friday in October rolled around and the school was holding a college fair for all the seniors. I'd recently bought my first pair of skinny slacks in an attempt to lure the girls in with that sorta clean cut yet edgy look. I wore these pants to the fair and I knew I looked good. I could feel other people's eyes on me -It was almost an omen of the events to come. I walked around the fair for a while, and then I saw it: the Harvard table and, more importantly, the gorgeous college rep. As the highly fashionable, overconfident high school senior that I was, I told myself that a college pamphlet wasn't all I'd be walking away with.

    As I started talking to this girl I had this mini movie playing in my mind: I'd ask her to prom, she'd say yes... The reality: She reached for her business cards and knocked over a cup of free pens, so I bent over to pick them up. Despite the cool autumn breeze that day, the wind I was feeling on my legs was cooler than it had been all morning. I stood like that, bent over, for an entire minute just to make sure I wasn't imagining the RIP that I just heard. I tore my pants!

    I never did apply for Harvard and the girl never did give me her business card. Good news though: I ended up going to prom with one of the girls from the school across the street! Even though she and I met months after the day of the ripping, my date's only request was that I not wear a skinny suit. It could have been worse, though, right? I could have pulled a Tess!

    What's the closest you've ever come to "social death" at school? Leave a comment.
