What movie soundtracks do you own?
How much cash do you usually carry with you?
Are you more comfortable around men or women? Why?
What is the most mischievous thing you remember doing as a child?
Who is the funniest member of your family?
Once upon a time there lived a little girl named Donna who lived in a little red brick ranch. It was Halloween time and the school had put on a party and a haunted house in their big gym. Little Donna came home with a bag of candy and a small plastic skull with shiny white rhinestones for eyes.
One night, as she played alone in her bedroom with the glowing skull, she picked the rhinestone out of the skull and placed it gently into her nose.
She immediately tried to get it out of her nose. But it was stuck.
Her nose started to bleed and she ran for her mom.
The rhinestone eye was cleverly hidden and Donna and her mommy had to go out into the dark night and meet the Doctor at his office.
Holding a large towel on her face, Donna told her mommy how the glass eye ended up in her nose.
Donna told a whopper, "Well, I was lying on my back, looking at the skull and the eye just fell in."
"That is very odd. Are sure you didn't put it in your nose?" ask the Mommy.
"Well, maybe.... I kinda.... put it in my nose."
Into the empty office they went. It was very quiet. The Doctor was waiting for them in his small office. He shone a bright light into Donna's face and picked out that little rhinestone that was hiding in her nose.
Donna and her mommy drove home and Donna went right to bed.
Donna resolved never to put things in her nose, ever again.
And she didn't.
Ya know what I remember most about that night? I remember how unusual it felt to be going out, into the dark, with my mother.
We just didn't go places after dinner on a school night.
Some things have really changed for children.
But some things never change, like;
How bad it feels to lie.
And how children like to stick things in their noses.
Looking forward to reading your escapades!
