I’m getting ready to move, and, in my gathering of stuff, I found a notebook from when I was 7.
Of particular interest, was the spelling/handwriting section. In each case, I had to come up with a sentence for the spelling word we were given* (Note: I’ve realized that some of them are supposed to be us giving definitions, not just sentences). What follows is both surprising and incredibly direct. I wish I could remember if I wrote them as honest fact, or with some sense of irony. Probably, they were the first thing that came to my head. I enjoyed finding and reading them, while wondering what I was thinking for most. Hopefully, you’ll do the same. And now, exactly as written:
Writer. Person who puts letters on paper.
Beehive. I’ve seen a beehive, but with no bees.
Ride. To be carried.
Talk. I don’t like to talk.
Teeth. I like my teeth.
Party. Group of people having a good time together.
Mark. Unit of money in East Germany and West Germany.
Nose. The part of your body used to breath.
Lion. A lion is a large animal that looks like a cat.
Old. Has lived a longgg time.
Secret. I hope a secret will come true.
Sailboat. I didn’t have a sentence.
Know. I know everything.
Are. You are next.
Mmhmm. Oh, 1995…
