There was one small problem, however. I forgot immediately what I was supposed to do. Had you asked me in those days what I was doing, or any such thing about a mission, I would have simply laughed and run off to play with the fairies under our porch. I spent a lot of time in those days playing with the fairies. We understood each other.
I didn’t think anything about Thomas during those days either. Why I didn’t even know he existed. Could have cared less! Some friend I AM! And I didn’t really think about much beyond our own house. I did once wander into the poppy field behind our house. It was orange and green everywhere. I cried for my MAMA. I was lost already.
It wasn’t as if I was unhappy though. Quite the contrary. PLANET EARTH has its perks and I learned a lot during those early days:
If I cried, I got picked up.
If I cried, I got fed.
If I cried, I got my underpants changed.
Oh, my if they could only see me now! It’s really the other way around. But, you see, maybe that’s a saving grace. Because the SHAME is so great and the indignities I suffered so embarrassing, it was a great good fortune I didn’t remember a thing about HOME. In fact, I began slowly, slowly to think this IS my HOME, my block, my poppy field, my Mother, my Father. I started to think everything was mine, just like the HUMANS.
My sisters thought the same way: everything was theirs. My socks! No mine! MAMA! My sisters fought just like ‘cats and dogs,’ they said. I don’t know why the HUMANS say that. Up until this day, I never have seen a cat or a dog fight each other. HUMANS though, they seem to know how to fight. Practice does that for you.
I learned to RUN for COVER!
