I'm Younger Than That Now
This week’s comment diversion topic comes to us from BiblioGlow :
This whole thread makes me want a ‘Stories of Pajibans’ comment diversion. Maybe vivid memories from childhood that, upon adult reflection, seem much more important/unbelievable/revealing than you realized at the time? Or just stories from your childhood that other people would be completely taken aback by.
I’ve actually got nothing for this one. Except for the time I was selling raffle tickets alone door-to-door for my grade three* school Fun Fair. I came to one house and I knocked and I knocked and finally a man opened the door in just his robe and greeted me with, “You came at a very bad time, little girl”. He did buy some raffle tickets. About 15 years later, I had a moment of “Ooooh. Bad time.”
For a second there, you thought the story was going to get super creepy, didn’t you?
*It was the 70s. Children did things like that then. There was also the time I was selling Girl Guide cookies door-to-door and I asked strangers if I could use their washroom (it was Canada) and they let me.
Since I am useless on this one, please run with BiblioGlow’s suggestion.
