Ever wish you could go back in time and meet your younger self? Well, in a round-about sort of way, I got to do just that. While cleaning out my grandparents house, my aunt came upon a book I had filled out when I was seven – “Very Special Me: A Book About Myself From Head to toe.” Here’s what I had to say (my responses are in bold):
Know why I’m so special? Because nobody else looks, thinks, or writes exactly like me!
What I like best about me is I read …
Something I like to do all by myself is Read.
I already know a lot about god, Josh (my brother), and animals.
Here’s a good idea for something different to do on a rainy day: laze around.
I think a good name for the tooth fairy would be debbie (my mom’s name mind you).
What I like to do when I’m quietly not talking or singing or yelling is Read (sensing a theme?).
With my left hand, I can wave.
With my right hand, I can write (okay, maybe a couple themes).
My favorite place for my feet to take me is My bed.
Sometimes I get tired of hearing my mother say Time to get up. (Isn’t it nice that I learned the finer things in life at such a young age? Things like lounging about, reading, writing…)
And, my personal favorite:
Here’s a joke I heard that made me laugh: get off my case potato face. (which still makes me laugh because, hello, it’s not even a joke!)
