I was once a kid. My body says I’m not a kid anymore, but my heart tells me something different.
I fooled people into believing I was an elementary school library media specialist–at least my principal and the people at the district office thought that. But I’m don’t believe the kids in my school were fooled. We knew how to have fun even if I did have to remind them that I was still the boss in the library.
When my body was a kid, I lived in northern Indiana. Most of that time I lived in a very small town or on a farm. Later we moved to Tennessee and I fooled the teachers at Middle Tennessee State University into thinking I was a college student.
Then I got really brave and fooled some principals in South Carolina into thinking I was a teacher.
I fooled some more people and got married and have a daughter. I think of her as my sister only now she is getting too old to be a kid so I don’t know what to do about that. She has three children for me to play with. That’s fantastic! I just wish they didn’t live so far away.
Now I am retired. Next I hope to fool some editors into thinking I’m a writer. Please don’t anybody tell them I’m really a kid.
I plan to share some kid memories and kid stuff here on my blog. I hope some other kids will join me here and make it more fun for all of us.
