Life Story - part 4

Permanent Linkby coneyislandking on Mon Feb 24, 2014 9:42 pm

This one will be short, I have schoolwork to do. I'm just gonna talk about some more learning mile-stones that are just as relevant as potty training and what-not.

I don't know what age I learned to tie my shoes. A part of me says it was later than average, but I could be merging that with my sister's life, because she was 9 when she learned to tie her shoes--and she still does a very poor job.

My babysitter (the mother of my molester) had taught my best friend to tie his shoes. This made me feel inferior and perhaps jealous, so I asked her to teach me. I learned, and when I showed my mom when she came to pick me up, she simply told me I had been taught to do it the wrong way (I learned to tie with two bunny ears where my mom was sure using only one was best). I can now tie both ways, but usually do it the way I was originally taught. I actually tend to prefer shoes that just slip on and off, like boots. The best friend mentioned here was only 25 days younger than me, so I guess I have reason to believe I learned at a normal time.

All I know about learning to read is that I knew before kindergarten. I am right handed, but I do everything else with my left hand--brush my teeth, hair, masturbate, manipulate objects. I guess that makes me ambidextrous in a liberal use of the word. I tell people I used to be able to write with my left hand, but my Christian school made me write with my right hand. I doubt this is true. I have very neat handwriting with my right hand. I also throw with my right hand, and I can bat from either side in baseball.

I don't know what age I learned to swim. It was earlier than average, though. Once, at daycare, I got close to convincing all the children to jump in the pool because I wanted to go swimming, though they didn't know how to swim. I would have succeeded but I was intercepted.

I learned to ride a bike with no training wheels later than average, for the same reason I began walking later than average. I was unable to trust myself.

I don't know when I learned to talk. My first word was "mom". There is a Christmas video from when it was just me and my mom, I was either 14 months or 26 months, and I was able to articulately identify the things I was opening.

There are some mornings when the sky looks like a road.
There are some dragons who were built to have and hold.
And some machines are dropped from great heights lovingly,
and some great bellies ache with many bumblebees,
and they sting so terribly.
