“When you were a kid, were you called a nerd? And if so, how did you deal with it?” This little girl asks Wil Wheaton a poignant question and gets a very thoughtful response. This is exactly what I’d say to myself if I could go back in time. Part of the pain and confusion of being teased and bullied is not knowing why. Why me? What did I do? To have a grown up – a famous, successful one at that – affirm you in this way is a wonderful thing. I’ve always been a Wil Wheaton fan, and this just validates my love for him.
