I Miss Childhood

    Child-Like Wonder I was walking near a candy

    shop when I spotted a little boy. He was eyeing at the candies inside while his mother wasn't looking. He looked like he was thinking of some naughty scheme to trick his mother into buying him some sweets. Watching him made me smile. Beautiful childhood.

    When I was a kid I used to think

    that all dogs were male and all cats were female. I also thought 3rd place was better than 1st because it was a bigger number. Lol
