    Nope

    Until I started school at the age of 4, I was convinced I was just a very short person.  I knew no other children, my family were all older than me and there were no children in my neighbourhood. Up until starting school, I thought television had little...

    This Could Explain a Lot

    I wasn't dumb as a doorknob in my youth, and I'm not Mensa material now.  I was always a good student, but this isn't about academics. In the winters of my youth, our parents would pack us in the car and we’d drive a couple miles to a really good sledding hill. ...

    I remember when I was 11,

    and I was laying on my bed. I couldn't believe how stupid I was! I had took a thing of nail polish, and opened it. Then I had accidentally tipped it, and it got in my eyes. I had spent about 3 minutes crying, and screaming, trying to get the nail polish out of my eyes. DX

    Don't Ever Touch the Golden Tassels of the American Flag

    The American Flag.  We were taught to respect it. You said the pledge of allegiance Monday through Friday at school. We were proud little American children in the 50's  and 60's. Perhaps I wasn't the smartest child, one night during a school performance...
