Heroin

Updated: Jul 28


When I was in seventh grade, my Social Studies teacher, Mr. Long, asked the class, “Does anyone know what heroin is?”


I confidently raised my hand.


“A female hero.”


I wasn’t wrong. I also wasn’t right.


I had heard, “Does anyone know what a heroine is?”


… a female hero.


Because I was so embarrassed, I have no recollection as to why he was asking us about drugs.
