1. detached; forgetful
I was a really, really finicky eater until my early teenage years, and still am to a very small extent (I still don't like seafood much at all)
Sometimes I feel I was praised too often as a kid
In my senior year just before graduation, a not-well-liked overweight kid jumped onto the hood of his friend's slow-moving car as a prank, got thrown off onto the pavement by the braking driver, and died two days later. There was a widespread outpouring of not-well-substantiated grief/thinly-disguised remorse, especially from those who had made fun of him constantly. I hadn't really ever made fun of him but he wasn't pleasant to be around because he was pretty loud and smelly. At graduation, there was a big "in memoriam" spiel for him which the parents and staff thought was very heartfelt. Every student knew that outside of a few genuine people, said outpouring was more or less fraudulent. These circumstances made for some of the weirdest days in my teenage life.
