Warning: may cause flashbacks to some truly tragic shopping trips.

1. Raise your hand if you had bruises on your hips from running into the furniture.

#GrowingUpThick Always banging your hips and thighs on the corners of tables, chairs, door frames, footboards, & headboards <<<<

2. And not just the furniture at home, either.

3. If book report time could more accurately be called "the 'how many pencils can I knock off of desks' challenge..."

#growingupthick and being shy is just a bad combo. Having to squeeze through desks in class & presenting was just

4. ...and recess, "'guess how this turns out' time."

#GrowingUpThick ... You were always the first victim when it came to the "tag" game

5. If the mall was your sworn enemy for a good couple years there...

#GrowingUpThick not even bothering to try on a pair of VS bathing suit bottoms bc even a size L makes you look like an open can of biscuits

15. ...and dudes just DID NOT GET IT.

#GrowingUpThick the guys that made fun of you in elementary school are the same ones trying to holla at you now

17. If finding something, anything to wear was totally the worst.
