Vv’s 100 words: Act

Remember when you were younger and a trip to the grocery store was the greatest adventure? When a dash to the store to get bread made your day? When the store was so confusingly big that it was a foreign world? I do. The short car rides, my little sister sitting squashed in the middle seat between my brother and me, proudly shouting “Snowy mountain!” when it came into view. But, most vividly, I remember my mother bending down to my level, struggling not to smile as she re-stated the rules.
“Be good. At least act like a well-behaved child.”

  3. As Joni Mitchell says, “I’ve looked at life from both sides now”. I’ve been the child, I’ve been the Mom — and it is sometimes difficult for the latter to remember the former. I do try. :)
