Day 10: Childhood Memory (me)

Childhood memories...this was a tough one for me.  I tend to only remember the bad stuff.  Not that anything all that traumatic happened to me as a kid...I just happen to remember times when I felt stupid, did something stupid, was embarrassed, teased, humiliated...well, you get the point.  I wish I could say I remember all the happy times, but for some reason, my brain just chooses to ignore that.  I find it very frustrating!  It's something I wish I could change about myself...really & truly! 

The more I thought about the challenge, what kept popping into my head was pulling dandelions with Sherrine.  Tata (her grandfather) was adamant that every last dandelion be pulled in his magnificent yard.  You couldn't just pull the leaves off.  Or pull the flowers. had to use a dandelion puller...a long screwdriver type tool that got to the roots of the dandelions.  I swear we spent hours every day pulling them...but I'm sure that's a gross exaggeration.  Sherrine & I were the best damn dandelion pullers around!
