When I was younger I’d put my arms in my shirt and told people I lost my arms. I would restart the video game whenever I knew I was going to lose. I would sleep with all the stuffed animals so none of them would get offended. I had that one pen with 6 colors, and tried to push all the buttons at once. I poured my soda into the cap and acting like I was taking shots. I would hide behind a door to scare someone, but soon leaves because they were taking too long or I had to pee. I would fake being asleep, so my dad would carry me to the bed. I thought if my mom eats too many foods, she would be pregnant. I used to think that the moon followed my car. I would watch those two drops of rain foll down window and pretend it was race. I used to swallow fruit seeds and get scare to death that a tree was going to grow in my tummy. I thought if my feet stepped the line on the floor, I had to pee. I had believe and obey with every word Dora’s said. I had believe if there was a rainbow, I would slide on the surface. I had believe if I put my teeth under the pillow, the tooth fairy would come and give me a gift. I didn’t care about things like want to wear, my mom dressed me. I didn’t know what cutting was, I used to sit in the window at my bedroom and wonder if I should jump or not. I would go on computer just to use Paint. The only thing I had to take care of was a Tamagochi. I would see older kids on my bus in all black and just looked so emotionless. I used to hide in bathroom, only when crying though. I had no idea what’s the value of money. I took very long time to finish up my food. I watched Rugrats, Teletubbies, Dora the Explorer, Blues Clues, Powerpuff Girl, Hey Arnold, etc. I used my mom’s high heels and singing in the living room, prented I was singer. I didn’t know that there are countries and I thought Indonesia and UK were the whole world. I spent my time to drawing a picture so I needed a thousand sheets of paper. I did like Pink and Purple.
Remember when we were kids and couldn’t wait to grow up? What were we thinking?
