I can still remember the day I was 1st allowed to walk to school alone.
in my 2nd year of school (5-6 yo) I used to watch the big kids walk by themselves and asked Mum why I couldnt go alone, Mum didnt think it was safe,
it was only about 600 mtrs but around 3 corners, so the 2nd time I asked Mum organised with the big kids for me to walk with 1 of them.
It was a cute older girl (12 yo) and 1 of her friends (not so cute) I had never been more enthusiastic about getting up for school knowing that after
brushing my teeth, having brekky and getting dressed I would get to hold this angels hand for that 600 mtrs of pure bliss to the school gate. Then one
day on the way home her BF (some older potential wife stealing bastard) walked home with us and held her hand on the other side, I was crushed and
then angry so I thought "Ill show that 2 timing hussy whats what!!"
I told Mum that I was ready, I was old enough and big enough to make the walk on my own, she was reluctant at first and said she would have to talk to
Amy (the 2 timing hobag) so she wouldnt be upset. That morning was the last time I walked with Amy and I made a point of not holding her hand just to
let her know I was pissed and it was over between us. She gave me some praise about how I was getting big and asked if I was sure I could go by
myself, obviously she was upset and was trying to get me to keep walking with her but I stuck to my guns.
The next morning I was ready and if possible even more excited about walking alone than I used to be about walking with that cheating cow. I got ready
extra quick but Mum made me wait 10 min telling me she was busy and I had to wait as she wanted to walk me to the gate.
So when we finally got to the gate Mum gave me a kiss and told me to be careful and I set off, wouldnt you know it but the Jezebel was about 20 away
from my place when I walked out, I wasnt gonna wait for her, I had to let her know she had ruined something wonderful and I deserved better. So I set
off double time and I can still remember the feeling of pride and freedom I felt, I was one of the big kids!!! I have earned trust and respect and
people believed I was capable. I walked on air to school that day.
Every day after that when I was walking out my door the stalking harlot was always behind me, she was most likely getting up a bit early and hanging
out down the street waiting for me to walk out hoping I would walk with her but I wasnt ready to forgive her and I made a point of ignoring her hoping
she felt as bad as I did on that day she showed her true colors with Justin (the potential wife stealer)
After a couple months I found forgiveness in my heart and one day relented, she had learned her lesson I felt and she didnt deserve me being so nasty
and cold, I waited for her and asked if she wanted me to walk with her.
The relief and happiness she felt was palpable, we didnt hold hands coz I wasnt ready to forgive that much or let her think that I was willing to take
her back but we walked as friends and even equals, I was really a big kid now, I was walking to school all alone with another big kid who was alone
and we were talking about big kid stuff, I was freakin AWESOME!!!!!
I think every kid deserves that same feeling I got when I walked to school by myself that first time, OK maybe not the seething hate part but the
feeling of responsibility and independence. Its truly sad that someone and not even the parents is trying to take that away from these kids.
Im not gonna read the article as it will just make me sick, I just wanted to say thanks for bringing back an awesome memory I had forgotten all about,
I can truly remember how I felt and its put me in a great mood
S&F for the feeling and memory this gave me, not for the article.
NOTE: the above is exactly what happened and how I felt just using grown up words LOL
I can actually remember thinking there was a good chance that girl was gonna be my wife haha.
And it turned out she wasnt stalking me, Mum was paying her $2 a week to keep an eye on me and I had to wait everyday to leave not coz Mum was busy
but because she was waiting till she saw Amy coming down the street out of the kitchen window.
Seriously what chance do I have with women in my life, My mother spent my formative years lying to me and my 1st love was only in it for my families
money, looking back my recent lady troubles are starting to make alot of sense
