I was always a snazzy dresser.
I was conversing with my mother about queries I posed as a child. I apparently was a hugely inquisitive lad who always made observations on any subject. Here are a few stellar interrogations:
"Mother, why have the clouds fallen?"
"It's just fog."
"Father, why do we see people once and never see them again?"
"That's just the way of the world, son."
"Grandmother, why do you call them colored people if they are just one color and not the color of the rainbow?"
"Mother, did you also lock me in the closet when I wouldn't stop screaming as a baby?"
"No, your younger sister just doesn't understand how to quit the crying with all the screaming and the yelling and the screaming."
"If we are visiting Little Rock, where is Big Rock?"
"There is no Big Rock..."
Also, I didn't keep my parents or siblings from sleeping because I was an exemplary baby. I've always been able to sleep, in fact I think I should list it under 'Life Achievements'. I once passed out halfway in a dryer.
Still in and out of the hospital for two members of my close family, and also myself. I have a stone bruise on my right foot I keep exacerbating by working on the property. The doctor says I should 'take it easy' and 'rest.' Does fishing for silver salmon count or scaring the chickens count? It's relaxing to me.
