I was thinking today about our pasts: and how we shamelessly edit them.
I remember that in Yr 9, I swapped schools for a year. When I thought of my old school I could have sworn that there was a retaining wall near the Art Block. But when I went back, it didn't exist.
Traumatic experiences are also often wiped quite successfully from my memory. However they have a bad way of resurfacing if I don't concentrate on it. Trust me, my brain is a regular CDRW or tape (depends what era you are from)!! But according to many physco doctors this perfectly normal...Well....as long it is normal I guess! Hahaha: that probably the only part of me that is :P!!
Ummm and now regarding the "proposals" part. Guess what? By my 19th year I have already had 4 proposals of marriage!! My first was at the tender age of 6 (I think) (I was in a tree at the time) and my beloved partner wanted to push me down the aisle in a wheelborrow. Ummm: poor kid! He moved and that was the end of that! And there was another at the age of 10: and the gentleman involved was Amish Mennonite and 15 (little cradle snatcher) (the momentous event occured in a cubby house). After I said yes (as all GOOD christian girls do or was it more thanks to the way I was brought up?) he freaked me out a little by calling me wifey all the time. The last 2 came from my beautiful Justin. The first was when we had been dating only something like 3 weeks and it was at 3am in the morning and we had moved our bed downstairs because it was so hot! The second came later and it was at the Bowling Centre with everyone watching, with the bended knee but using my commitment ring as a ring stand in. He is planning a 3rd time with the proper ring but God only knows when that will be!!
