“When I was younger I’d put my arms in my shirt and tell people I lost my arms. I would restart the video game whenever I knew I was going to lose. I would sleep with all the stuffed animals so that none of them would get offended. I had that one pen with 6 colours, and tried to push all the buttons at once. I would pour the soda into the bottle cap and act like I was taking shots. I would wait behind a door to scare someone, but soon leave because they were taking too long or I had to pee. I would fake being asleep, so my dad would carry me to my bed. I used to believe that the moon followed my car. I used to watch those two drops of rain roll down the window and pretend it was a race. I would swallow fruit seeds and be scared to death that a tree was going to grow in my tummy. Remember when we were kids and couldn’t wait to grow up? What were we thinking?”
