When I was younger, I’d put my arms in my shirt and told people I lost my arms. I would restart the video game whenever I knew I was going to lose. I would sleep with all the stuffed animals, so none of them would get offended. I had that one pen with 6 colors and tried to push all the buttons at once. I poured my soda into the cap and acted like I was taking shots. I would wait behind a door to scare someone, but soon leave because they were taking too long or I had to pee. I would fake being asleep, so my dad would carry me to bed. I used to think that the moon followed my car. I would watch those two drops of rain roll down the window and pretend it was a race. I used to swallow fruit seeds and get scared to death that a tree was going to grow in my tummy. Remember when we were kids and couldn’t wait to grow up? What were we thinking?
I read this on my dashboard on tumblr and it immediately caught my eye. I think all of these things are done by every kid, right? It made me laugh so much and ended up smiling because of it. It reminds me to the days when everything was taken for granted for me. I didn’t worry about anything back then. Wouldn’t it be amazing if life had stayed the same?
