This happened in grade 5. All of us still looked and sounded like young kids when I, and only I, started to develop a ‘phenomenon’:
I suddenly started to grow hairs on my arms and on my legs. This was thick black hair that you couldn’t help noticing.
I had become hairy!
It was hot outside, and the regional sports competition was coming soon. It sounded like great fun, but for me it was a nightmare.
Just the thought of our team sports kit (the shortest possible running short and a skimpy vest) made me feel sick.
I didn’t know what to do. How could I let everyone see my hairy body in those shorts, and in a sleeveless vest???
