10 long years ago, nine year old me was drinking from the water fountain at my gymnastics club, when one of my teammates started explaining Whyville to me. And it made no sense. Creating avatars, salaries, money that wasn't called money but were called clams?
. . . waaaht?
But I didn't brush it off as fast as I would've now. My twin and I went over to her house and created our first account as a group. Now keep in mind, we were annoying little nine year old who thought burping was the epitome of comedy, but were also scared of online strangers from all the things we had learned at school. We decided we were going to pose as a boy named Austin. So we all agreed upon a name.
