Hamilton this Sunday, Jan 14.


I ate mushrooms off the lawn when I was five. I had just started kindergarden and our teacher was being transfered to another school.

He looked like Mr. Dress Up.

I had to be kept overnight in the hospital and consequently missed the goodbye party. The girl sharing my room cried loudly all night long. I watched The Flintstones in the play room the following afternoon while a bedridden kid had their temperature taken rectally.

There were green peas on my lunch tray.

I'm positive I ate mushrooms off the lawn PRIOR to this incident. And I definitely had to withhold from eating mushrooms off the lawn for years afterward.

Upon returning to school the following Monday I had a new teacher and a new classroom.

Throughout my life people have speculated that this is why I have abnormally large pupils.
