  • When I was about two years old, I bopped my baby brother with a wooden hammer and once put a wad of gum in my sister’s hair.

    I was part of a group of kids who called a girl in our neighborhood “fungus face,” and in eighth-grade I spread vicious rumors about a girl who I thought stole my boyfriend.

    Once I shoplifted a bottle of Compound W wart remover and a Yardley Lip Slicker lipstick from Thrifty Drug Store.
