A little boy's daily activities...

November 21 2010

When I was a little boy I had to do a daily chore which was stressful. I used to get up at 7 am. As soon as I got out of bed, I used to fold my bedspread myself. Then I would come back to my bedroom and carry the bed-mattress all the way to the storeroom shelf. Carrying a heavy bed was not an easy job at all. Then I would come down,brush my teeth, take a bath, have breakfast, and then rush to school.
This was my daily activity as a child. Everyday I would take a decision that I would not chew my finger anymore. But every morning when I wake up, I would realise that I had failed to abide by my decision. My family tried every method under the sun to stop their son from chewing his finger every night. They did everything to stop. All their efforts went in vain. I am not gonna reveal the last time I chewed my finger as a CHILD. All I can say is that I don't chew my finger anymore. If you are laughing at me, I am sure that you would have done it too. I can hear you saying,"Been there . Done that mate".

Another daily activity of mine was getting punished at school; for not doing the homework, for sticking chewing gum under the table, for hiding my lunch box because I don't like it. My school teacher lacked the creative punishment skills. She either made me to kneel down or made me to hug my own thighs (see picture below)
Another daily activity of mine was stealing mangoes from a house on the way back home from school.There were many mango trees in my house with tasty mangoes. But the taste of a stolen mango was way sweeter than eating mangoes from your own backyard. Now a days when little kids climb our compound wall to steal mangoes from our house, I remember my childhood days and that brings a smile on my face.
