    My Big Brother

    I grew up the youngest in a family of five kids. We were poor, which not only meant that I had to wear, ugly, outdated clothes and inherit broken toys (I could never get that damn mousetrap game to work!) It also meant, that if my brother and sister didn't have to go to school...

    I believed if I stepped on a crack,

    When I was an innocent,

    little boy, I believed that babies could be bought in markets, like groceries. Parents would go to the market, buy babies and pay for them according to their weight, like groceries. That was the truth for me until nine.

    Well, I believed a lot of stupid things,

    and most of them nobody even told me, I thought them for no reason. I thought grown-ups never cried. I used to think that the sun went down every night and the moon and stars went up, but I thought that there was a split second of complete and total darkness in between. I also...

    I also remember driving in said Van with my dad

    and he opened a can of pop. I started bawling because I believed he might go to jail. I had seen signs on the side of the roads that said "Don't Drink and Drive"

    When I was little, and before I actually met one, I thought that those haystacks sitting in fields and on farms were cows.

    Breastfeeding: When I was a child,

    I thought that since white women had white breast milk....that black women must have chocolate milk. And that red-haired women had strawberry milk. One of my more brilliant childhood theories.

    Making out & getting pregnant.

    It's my mom's fault. I blame it all on her shoulders. You see when I was growing up she used to read all these Harlequin romances and back then they were pretty tame. No graphic sex. So everything starting with the kisses that then turned into passionate makeout sessions...

    My neighbors apparently hated when I bit my nails when I was little, because they led me to believe that if I swallowed the pieces of bitten off nail, they would turn into worms in my stomach.

    I used to believe that actors

    and actresses that acted on tv lived on another planet and that the government payed them to entertain us. I thought this because I could never see the actors and actresses in real life so I just assumed they lived in space.
