Wow, what did I do as a child?? One thing I remember is going to my friend Jenny's house down the block. She was actually my older sister's friend and I think I stole her. At least that is what my sister says! LOL
We would play school when we were younger. Jenny was a few years older than me but we ended up being friends for many years. Pretty much until I moved up North to my Dad's house. I remember her being obsessed with her looks and makeup. I think her mom actually sent her to a beauty school. No offense, but beauty school didn't do much for her except make her look like a painted barn. I guess if the barn looks bad, paint it up!
I had some really awesome roller skates too! (I stole them from my sister too) They flashed lights on the wheels as you skated. I thought they were great. I couldn't stop with them, though. I always had to run into the grass to stop. Pathetic...
My brother and I played some games with the basketball hoop. One game was called "horse". You had to stand in one place and shoot the basket and once you made the shot, you moved to the next letter space until you spelled the word h-o-r-s-e. Obviously, whoever did it forst, one. Even though I played basketball on the school team, I rarely one. No wonder those girls didn't like me. I stunk!
Seeing as my parents kicked me out when I was 14, that didn't give me much of a childhood. In fact, my first job was when I was 10 at H&R Block--it was run by my Grandpa so it was legal and then I had a paper route when I was 12 and by 14, I could work at Burger King. I suppose that's a whole different story, eh?
