Remember being six years old? First grade? Loose teeth? Mom still picking out your clothes? I began to wax nostalgic for my six year old self and what I thought I knew back then. Compared to several decades later, I wonder what values and opinions I've still kept.
These are things I distinctly recall saying that I can honestly confirm I got right:
1. Any bad day gets better with ice cream.
2. Nothing is as exciting and fulfilling as reading a very good book.
3. When I grow up, I want to be a writer.
4. Bugs Bunny is a genius.
5. Naps rock!
6. Sharing with others makes me feel good.
7. Only a boy who can make me laugh will win my heart.
8. No one cares if the part in my hair is crooked.
9. I will never, never, never want that godawful family photo that hangs in my parents' living room.
10. Clowns are creepy.
How wise were you when you were six?
