I'm loving this thread.. very fun!
I grew up in the country and there weren't a lot of kids around. So, I had to make the most of being by myself or playing with my sister. I loved to climb trees and read books or wander around the countryside. I also had some favorite little hidden places that no one would know about. Usually, it was just a place where the tree limbs grew down low. I would climb in and be hidden from everyone, though there wasn't anyone around anyway! If I was stuck inside, I would build forts with blankets and chairs and hide in them. I just always liked to be tucked away somewhere.
I was fascinated with the thought of magic things. I used to, probably around 5 or 6, get as many random things, like crayons, glue, pencil shavings, and mix them all together, thinking I was making some magic potion. If I were left home for too long by myself, there was no telling what would end up in a big bowl. I got in trouble at school for getting a kid to try one of my concoctions. I also got in trouble on the first day of kindergarten for fighting.. a couple of boys, one of which was my cousin, chased me down on the playground and held me down. i bit one of them when he put his hand over my mouth. Of course, he didn't get in trouble but i did for biting! I'm still bitter...
I lived far away from all the other kids and my parents weren't too big on driving us into town for social events. Because of that, I really learned to be alone and I never had a lot of friends. I did get to see my cousins a lot in the summer. We would stay in trouble with prank calling and just being generally disobedient. I read so many books. I stayed in whatever fantasy world I was in at the moment. I would also write a lot of my own stories and poetry, though i never could share any of it with anyone.
