    Concrete Pool

    When I was younger I took swimming classes. You can see where this is going to. I can already hear the teeth clamping together. Well, the team was in the water and we were playing around. One of the kids said, " I bet you can't get me". So he went under the water and...

    Passport

    I got out my old passport photo the other day. It was issued 7th April 1989 - which means I was 5yrs and 4 months. I noticed something odd.... I have a black eye. It made me so sad. The only time I can ever recall having a black eye was when my brother punched me outside a shop...

    I Had a Black Eye From My Mother

    My mother was abusive most of my life. She would fly off the handle 9 times a day or more, slapping me, pulling my hair, throwing things at me, kicking me, whatever she could do that hurt. And every day she called me the worst things she could think of. One day, when I was maybe...

    It's Not Funny

    Don't laugh at me, cause this sooo is not a reflection of who I actually am. Anyway... In about fourth grade, I was naive with a capital NAI. I was curious about my surroundings though, which can be a good thing - or a bad thing. In the case of this story, it was kind of bad...
