Time Travel Tuesdays

One spring evening my parents came home. I was about 8 years old and they had left me home alone. This wasn't such a strange occurrence back then. They knew I wouldn't get into any trouble.

But when they got home, I wasn't there. They searched the house. They called my friends. No one had seen me.

So they got in the car and started driving around the neighborhood looking for me. 

It was starting to get cold and dark and my parents were getting worried.

But then they found me. I was walking around the neighborhood with a nearly empty cookie sheet. A few candy bars were scattered across it. 

You see, recently someone had come to my house with a box of candy. They were fundraising something, and I had realized that this was a gold mine. 

So I gathered up all of my old, leftover Halloween candy from 5 months prior and went around selling it back to the people who had given it to me for free when I was trick-or-treating.

My parents followed me down the street as I hit one last house. 

I came away with about twenty bucks!

Nothing is better than Soda and Chocolate. Amen!

Here are two clips that prove that I've been awesome since I was three!

1. I played video games (and talk to the characters!)
2. I am already in love with Calvin and Hobbes and I can't even read yet!

Hello Kate,

I like your blog header, and your blog is well-designed. I am too 'ugly' to show on You Tube from when I was kid.;)
