30 Day Writing Challenge - Day 2 - Your Earliest Memory
Day 2 - Your Earliest Memory
I have a notoriously bad memory - at least when it comes to remembering things from the past. The earliest moments I can remember are in Grade 1. I have several memories from that time period.
I remember an assembly where a performer of some kind came and brought a caged tiger or some other sort of wild cat for us to see.
Another assembly where they had a moonwalking contest.
There was a time when I was jealous of my best friend Becky because the teacher publicly praised the way she was coloring in her circle, which was different than the way I was going it. Yup, those perfectionist tendencies began a long time ago!
And there was a time when Becky got hurt on one of the structures on the play ground - that one where you hold on and you swing around and around a pole? She ended up going flying off it. Yeah, they don't have that one anymore nowadays.
I also remember someone I know, who shall remain nameless (not me!), getting pantsed.
There you have it - memories from Grade 1!
