His first day of high school everyone laughed.

‘See what he’s wearing?’

‘Around his waist… what a weirdo.’

‘OMG.’

He ignored them. Acted like he didn’t care.

It only took a few weeks.

By the end of first term everyone wore cords instead of belts. Jim’s Hardware put in a special order from China just to meet the demand.

The first morning of second term he stared at the extension cord hanging over the back of his bedroom chair.

From his wardrobe he pulled a dusty old belt and threaded it through the loops of his jeans.
