Here are two, random childhood memories that resurfaced just a few moments ago. I shared one story with a coworker who then asked, “Have you had a liquid lunch today?”
Anyway, when I was a little kid, my family used to sing the song, “Ta-Ra-Ra Boom-de-ay”, mainly because my name was in the song. Well, I didn’t like it. I think I even told them that I didn’t like the song. Thinking about it now, I don’t know what caused me to dislike it so much, so it got me laughing. This was the story that concerned my coworker. She asked if I had just had a “liquid lunch”.
Story two was a memory that followed the flashback of my reaction to the previously mentioned song. I was a quiet, happy kid and rarely complained, but if I really didn’t like something, I let my parents know. Again, this was back when I was a little kid; back when my mom would do-up my hair each day. She decided one day to give me pigtails. Fine! When she was finished, she picked me up and showed off my new do in the mirror. I shouted, “No!” She put me down fast and the pigtails were removed. I have nothing against pigtails now, though. Go figure.
