    Bitingly

    I never broke anything in my youth, besides my freshly grown new pair of front teeth... They fell out a couple of days later and to everybody's amazement I grew an even fresher pair (of teeth), the same ones I still have now  : )

    I was afraid to speak since everything I would say, my mother would be angry with. If I laughed at something on television and she didn't like what was showing, she'd be angry. I learned to follow her directives, to look at her facial expression and copy it, for it were...

    Do You Hear The Echo Of Childhood Footsteps?

    In My Pocket, 1

    I used to keep tiny plastic models of ocean liners that came free with corn flakes in my pocket and when it rained I would float them along the gutters on the way to school which would leave my hands cold and wrinkled and gritty under the nails.

    Rockpools And Conkers

    I used to love going rockpooling beneath the large chalk cliffs of southern England. I also loved going to the parks with their massive deciduous trees and collecting the largest conkers I could, attaching them to string and then winning a game of conkers at school.

    I was nine years old when my dad told me to climb up into the cab of the tractor and keep it moving so that the bailer stayed in line with the cut ditch hay. I have been driving stick shifts ever since, wranglers pickups, trucks, tractors, and a front loader once even.

    We had to go to school barefoot,

    and weren't allowed to wear shoes to school, and loved it,but in the boarding school, we didn't have to wear pyjamas and slept in the nude, which was good for doing boy things.
