My cousin Alyson, who was 24 at the time, was giving me a bath and of course I was doing what most 3 year olds do in a tub. The only part that is blurry is why she left the bathroom after draining the water, and I was left standing on the rug waiting for her to comeback. I'm assuming she forgot a bath towel or maybe the phone right...whatever, she wasn't in there. I decided to use a pillowcase that was in the clean laundry bin right outside of the bathroom door, and go for a walk outside.
I remember hearing Alyson call me, and since I didn't want to get in trouble- I took off running. All I remember is laughing hysterically and turning around looking at her. I had a pretty decent head start, and she was probably only 100 feet away but since I was so small, it seemed like a mile.
I proceeded to turn the corner and run to the next block, but the next block seemed pretty short. As I made my way to the corner, I came to a halt; The street.
If I went any further...the big german shepherd that lived 2 houses down from the corner would eat me ( so I thought) and Alyson was coming from the other direction. But, I couldn't cross the street without anyone holding my hand...so I stayed there and waited for her to catch me.
Filthy feet, clean body- naked little girl wrapped in a pillowcase. Story of my life.
I told my daughter this story for the first time, and she laughed so hard....she just kept passing gas ( she had milk at school..what can I say).
