5. At what age were you the happiest?

The last time I was truly happy was when I was 6. My world was perfect. I had just gone to Disney World for the first time before kindergarten started. During an average school day, Mom and Dad would take me to kindergarten and, I’d go read books to my class. Then Mom and I would walk home from school. Mister Rogers, a tuna fish sandwich and a nap was what my afternoon consisted of. My Dad would come home in the evening and we’d read a book after dinner. There, in my room, wrapped up in a world of innocence, playing with my Barbie dolls, I had not the slightest idea of what my future would hold and what the world was like. My Dad was home a lot more in those days, and my parents fought a lot less back then. also, my Grammy was still alive then, she was one of my best friends back them.

Everything is ceremony in the wild garden of childhood.

Poor Michael. This is what I saw everytime I looked at an image of him.

I wanna grow up and be an illustrator and create pictures like these for books. It takes me back to when I was a child, and I’d look at the pictures and imagine a whole world from just one page.

Does anyone remember reading this book?

Mister Dog, the original hipster

This was one of my favorites when I was little. I fondly remembered this book the other day, and how I thought that the main character was such a bamf for being “his own dog.” Crispin’s Crispian is a dog who belongs to himself. He lives in his own folksy 2-story house. He smokes a pipe and wears a bow tie. During the whole story he does whatever he wants, and has a hipster attitude to match. 

The part where the story takes a turn is: “Crispin’s Crispian was a conservative. He liked everything at the right time-“

GTFO.
