What were you like as a kid?

I am asking because I KNOW what I was.

I was the kid in class that kept everyone laughing. It was my way to get someone to like me. I know that now. I just made funnies when I was a kid because that's what came out of my mouth.

When you go to 29 schools by your senior year in high school, you learn how to be either the braniac or the clown. I was the clown in grade school, but when I got to junior high I became the braniac.

Was it my way to cope?

Probably.

Did I suffer from this?

Not one bit!!

As a matter of fact, the clown part of me is a good thing right now in my life.

Example---Jerry loves to help clean the kitchen. He puts bottles and leftovers away. He scrubs down the counters. He washes the pots and pans. He cleans off the burners. He does not sweep the floor. But, he DOES put things back into the fridge.

I have been looking for the bottle of BBQ sauce since Saturday. I looked everywhere on the shelves in the fridge. I looked high and low in the cabinets.

I didn't look into the bottom drawer.

Guess where the BBQ sauce was?

In the bottom drawer!!

I laughed!!

It's a clown thing.

More later, Linda
