When I was learning to talk, I was flag-obsessed. I couldn't pronounce L's yet, so, there was that too. My parents bought me a "Flags of the World" poster, had it framed, and hung it in my bedroom. I studied up.

Fast forward to kindergarten. It's Monday of "green week". The teacher has us seated around a chalk board, and kids are raising their hands sky-high, all sounding off items that are green. "Frogs," a kid says. "The grass!", a girl exclaims. "The flag of Libya," I offer, but the teacher furrows her brows, pauses for moment, writes nothing on the board, then moves on to the next student. I knew for damn sure that I was right, and I felt nothing short of devastated.

What I'm trying to say is... great idea for a blog, amigo!
