Now for my story. It really all began back in 7th grade, by that time I had been in and out of the system and while scared not overly damaged. I was however in survivor mod, and my only goal was to be invisible. I don’t mean like superhero invisible, I wanted no one to notice me and I wanted to deal with no one. There are trick to being invisible one is no set patterns, never eat at the same table in the lunch room, never stand in the same location, never draw attention to yourself. Now 7th grade met Jr High School in our suburbs, and students from 10 or more little elementary schools where join together to form Jr High School. This meant there where a lot of kids in school you didn’t know and didn’t know you, so becoming invisible was a possibility. I was never really very good at being invisible, but that didn’t keep me from trying and sometime I managed to pull it off for a week or two.
Robin on the other hand was a master, at invisibility. I knew her for at least three years and couldn't tell you her last name or even what classes we had together. Thinking back on it, I'm not sure how she pull it off. She was a auburn haired beauty - I don’t mean merely pretty but with a little TLC she would have been knock dead gorgeous. While the hormone fairy had forgotten what zip code I lived (in fact that summer, at one of the numerous summer camps I was sent off to, I was assigned into the boys cabin how utterly depressing). Robin on the other hand was hit early and hard. But like a lot of girls who had breast and hips young she wore baggy tops and ill fitting jeans, so no one would notice. Her hair was a deep dark red, that she kept loose about shoulder length and while it was never dirty it was dull, like she wash it in regular bar soap not shampoo.

~THE ASSIGMENT IF WE CHOOSE TO EXCEPT IT IS ~To list the things in your live that where worth doing. Those moment in our life that will pass though your mind when time comes. This doesn't necessarily have to be items for the Bucket List, it can be those small moments that made us smile, or the time you got that huge promotion we deserved, or the first time the baby smiled at you out of pure joy. The Southern Doll wants to know all the moments, big and small, that make life sweet! If you don't already have a running list of these in your mind, you should! These moments help you remember how much your life is worth living, and we all deserve to enjoy it.
Now I have done some of the normals - Jumped out a perfectly good airplane, had my feet in both oceans, seen the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Florida Everglades, Zion, Carlsbad Caverns, Mesa Verde, Arches, and a few other national parks, been up in a hot air balloon, blooded on a boar hunt, and tried my hand at noodling. I have eaten at a four star restaurant, and have eaten road kill (but I still can’t stomach bustle sprouts) Been to prison, been to the Whitehouse, been tattooed, been on a movie set (ended on the cutting room floor but such is life) and lastly been in love (that one ended in disaster). I’m out of debt, and own my own home, have a college degree but none of this would not make my top 5.
As for my list -
Thanks for stopping by. Now be nice and visit other FUN MONDAY players.
