|The Onion and her |
This is a new photo, but I keep stopping at it as I miss the girls of my youth and reminisce about the recent Way Back Machine trip. The one in the back is me. In the foreground, one of my best friends (and sometimes worst enemy) since grade school.
We met the first day of kindergarten, when she said to me at play time;
I was the product of a strict mother and knew running was against the rules. Again, she said:
So we did.
And, we got in trouble.
And, we had to sit in time out.
My twin sister watched with big eyes as I sat in the central time out chairs, looking like the dog with the cone around my head. We both knew our Mother would not approve. And that she would probably find out about this incident of time-out-ness.
The girl in the foreground?
She didn't care.
She didn't cry ( I considered it)
Look at her in the photo. That was the exact look she had on her face....
I was hooked.
This post was inspired by a Write on Edge prompt asking me to write about a photograph of myself. Apologies in advance for the swimwear.
