I wish I had something to say

I haven't blogged in a really long time and I think I should get back into it. Maybe not as much as the birthday countdown but at least once a week would be nice. During the birthday countdown it felt like a job and when something isn't fun anymore - I don't really like to do it. I bought the book: "The Book of ME - A Do-It Yourself Memoir" in hopes that it would provide me with something to talk about... so here goes...

Naughty or Nice - Connfessions
"When do you get caught red-handed?"
Stealing a candy bar when I was little. I know that sounds weird but I really remember it. We lived in Chandler and we had stopped at a gas station to get gas. Mom was at the register and wrote a check to pay for the gas. I picked up a candy bar and took it with me. When we go into the car - I started eating it. Mom asked me where I got that and I told her the gas station. She said that she didn't pay for it and that I had stolen it. I didn't really understand because she had written a check so I thought she was paying for everything but I hadn't asked so she didn't know I had it. She turned the car around and we went back to the gas station. I had to go in and apologize and give the clerk the candy bar back. Mom paid for the candy bar and apologized but I didn't get the candy bar back. That was how I learned about stealing and I also learned that just because Mom is writing a check doesn't mean you can have whatever you want. LESSON LEARNED!
