It's Day 18 of the Blog Every Day Challenge!
Tell a story from your childhood. Dig deep and try to be descriptive about what you remember and how you felt.
I remember I used to LOVE going to the library (still do!) and one time my mom took me to the downtown Minneapolis branch. So I was like 6 or 7 and back in the day the Children's section had the Nancy Drew novels but they were off to the side in the regular stacks that where 8ft high. (really easy for children to reach the books???) Anywhoo I was after my Nancy Drews and I was concentrating on getting it off the high shelf, all of a sudden a homeless man with the really matted hair and very dirty came around the corner into the stacks (and honestly he was probably harmless) but I remember it scared the S#it out of me. It was the first time I had seen someone in that state up close, and I don't think I knew exactly why he looked like that. I remember I froze and I was so scarred he was going to "get" me. I finally got my wits about me (I was only 6 for goodness sake!) and ran to the common area by the librarian and just told my mom I was ready to go. I never said anything about it because I was so scared. But it's always stuck with me as a very vivid memory.
So that's my lovely childhood story!
Who are your best friends and what makes them so special?
Long story short - I have moved a lot, I am old and I don't currently have any friends.
