What kind of experiences do you remember as a child? Were they fun and fluffy like cotten candy or harsh and bitter like Vics cough syrup? And knowing what you know now what do you think about those experiences?
1) When I was eight years old I was jumping over sewer ditches (they had only dirt) and I thought it was safe but I fell into the middle of one and sliced my foot on a piece of glass. I didn't feel the glass cut my foot so I damaged a nerve there and had to get eight stitches in my foot.
2) Also when I was eight years old I was running with my friends on the road and I tripped on my own two feet and cut my forehead. The cut was big enough that when I got up I had blood dribbling down my face and my friends began to scream as they yelled for my mom. My mom freaked out and I remember her asking me for the rest of the day if I felt dizzy. When everything was all right she shaved a patch of my hair where the cut was and put some of that liquid bandage stuff on it.
Thoughts: Looking back I find that I was an absent minded girl at age 8 and I am still absent minded as I will still sometimes walk into the doors. And I still do not wear shoes which probably is a bad thing.
