Back Then

When I was little we had a dog named Winston. He was a little Shih tzu, and we had him drink his water out of a hamster water dispenser. Often my friend and I would lock ourselves in the bathroom where his drink dispenser was kept. Then secretly we would drink out of it.

When I was little my grandpa told me that it's easier to catch fireflies if you sprinkle salt on their butts. It didn't work.

When I was little my sister and I used to wrap tooth paste in toilet paper and eat it.

When I was little I had a crush on a boy named Robert Vis and was convinced that he had a crush on me too. He didn't...yet.

When I was little my friend and I were excited about selling perfume we made by soaking roses in water.

When I was little I was horribly afraid of the dark and of sleeping by myself. Every night I would pester my mom to come in my room and tuck me in again because I was scared. Eventually I felt I needed a better reason. So, I went in the bathroom, filled up a cup of water, poured it in my bed, and told my mom that I wet the bed and could she change the sheets for me.

When I was little my sister and I would play barbies with the radio playing in the background. To this day, 80's music makes me think of playing with barbie dolls.
