    I used to think that the furniture,

    cars, and everything was alive when I was younger. Just like monster under the bed that at night they woke up and would eat me. If you really look at the front of cars (or even the back sometimes) they resemble a face even if only in the slighest

    The Egg And The Chicken

    At the age of about 5 or 6,I somehow got the idea that chickens would hatch out of the eggs in our kitchen if they were kept for long enough.So one day I sneaked an egg out of the cupboard,hid it under my bed,then checked every day to see if a chick was pecking its way out...

    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 We were poor, which not only meant that I had to wear, ugly, outdated clothes and inherit broken toys (I could never get that damn mousetrap game to work!)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 didn't know until a few years ago

    that the interstate highways in my state didn't just naturally happen to be situated between the bluffs. My mom had to tell me the bluffs had to be blown away with dynamite to make way for the interstates. I'm almost 41. Lol.

    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...

    Breastfeeding: When I was a child,
