Things you remember from when you were young!

You know when you’re hanging out around the house with nothing to do. My Aunt and mom were laying in bed reading there books, things were real quiet. I slipped into the room very quietly on the side my Aunt was laying on. I thought about it for a second and said to myself “oh well!”

books I reached over and grabbed her book. She jumped up but I was running out the door by that time and laughing so hard, I looked over my shoulder to see how

close she was. She was right on my heels. I knew right then I was in a lot of trouble. She hollered in a loud voice youngin when I catch you I’m going to whip

your little behind, then grabbing me by the arm she laughed and said “got you” guess what happened.

Have you ever heard some one say I’m bored? Let me tell yo u a short story about the word “bored”. One day I walked up to my Mother and said “I’m bored”. She said “son come with me”.

Not Bored Now!I followed her to the kitchen, she handed me a broom and said “sweep all the floors and mop them”. When mom said to do something you just did it. So I did what she said. About two hours later as I was finishing up Mom walked in. Guess what she said. “Are you bored” I looked up at her and said NO Ma’am. As she walked away laughing she asked did you learn any thing. I said YES Ma’am, and that day I learned….. “never under any circumstances go and tell your Mother your bored.”

Cherry Coke

Back in my teens when I was going to Cherokee Jr. High School in Orlando, Fl, I played a little football. It was called half-pint football. One of the things that the coach told us was that we could not drink any carbonated sodas.
FootballIf you did and he caught you it was two laps around the football field. One day after school some of us stopped at a little store down from the school. We were sitting there on a stool wondering what we could drink remembering what the coach had said. We did not want to run those two extra laps. Then I had this idea, I asked the man behind the counter if he could make us a cherry coke with plain water. He though about it for a second and said “I can do that”. After he fixed it we tasted it and boy that was good. So we had found our drink. We were sitting there enjoying our drink and guess who walks in. The coach said “Aha, I caught you guys – two laps around the field. We laughed and told the coach there was no carbonated water in our drinks. You should have seen the look on his face, of course he did not believe us so the man behind the counter spoke up and said they’re right the drink the boys are drinking is made with coke and cherry syrup and plain water. He thought he had nailed us but we did not half to run those two extra laps.

You know when Coca Cola came out with the cherry coke I guess that was a big thing but let me tell you something, as young half pint football players we already knew about cherry cokes.

Can you run a hundred yards in one minute?
