Do you remember?

Do you remember your first day of school? Do you remember the first time you answered a question in class?

Do you remember the first book you borrowed from the library?

I actually don’t remember the first things, but the last one I do.

It isn’t because I remember reading the book, I don’t know why I borrowed it. The only thing I remember is returning it.  Maybe I was scared, maybe I didn’t understand the teacher.

It was library day. It was time to return the books from the previous week.  Our class walked to the library, down the hall, then to the left.  We were supposed to sit down and wait for instructions. I went into the library, ran to the shelf were I had gotten the book a week earlier,  and put the book in the same place where I had gotten it from. Then the teacher / or librarian asked everyone to return their books to the main desk. I was too scared to do anything.  The book was Harold and the Purple Crayon. It is still one of my favorites.

I found one on Amazon and bought if for my son.
