Cocoa Swap Topic #3

What is the most ‘random’ memory you have from your childhood? I know it’s not knitting content, but I love learning about the little quirks and interesting things about people!

When I was in Kindergarten I distinctly remember loving the Quaker Oats instant Oatmeal packets, (Apples and Cinnamon were my favorite flavor), and at the time, the packets were tan-ish in color, and had green printing on them (just like now I believe… not much has changed in 30+ years…) and they had these jokes and random facts printed on them.  I was an early reader, and loved the jokes, so, for show and tell one time I brought in a bunch of spent packages of oatmeal to share the jokes with the class… I was picked on mercilessly by this one girl, who’s name I’ll never forget, Jessica…  it made me so mad that she thought I was too ‘Simple’ and that the oatmeal packets were in her words ‘gross’…  I remember watching her get off the bus that day and going up her driveway and being so angry that I wanted to cry, but deciding that I wouldn’t give her the satisfaction in that…

In first grade she moved and didn’t return to our school…

So… I’ll be on vacation from Tomorrow through next Tuesday!  See you next week!

(We’re not sure if we’ll have internet… )
