My Summer as a Bully

My Summer as a Bully

I was never bully material. I was the youngest in my family so I never had any one to practice bullying on. Plus, I always carried around a lot of guilt so it was hard for me to be cruel to someone for my own personal satisfaction. Like so many stupid things I have said, I have kept a vivid memory of my hurtful words and actions and have been tormented with a fantasy that someday I could actually apologize to those who I intentionally hurt.

Yet, as twelve year old, there was one summer when I got to pick on someone weaker than me and feel somewhat superior. In a rare event of family unity, it was decided that my two nephews and I would get to go to Junior Life Guard Camp at Folsom Lake.  We did daily runs, long swims, learned how to sail and perform CPR over a 4 week period. Some how a car pool was organized in the neighborhood, so my nephews and I got to take a long hot ride out to the lake with other kids we did not know.

One of kids was Chris.

[Unpacked my kitchen stuff and my appliances are all out on the counter. Easy access = actual use. Smoothies FTW!] | [Saks September Fashion catalog. I don't shop at Saks, but apparently my landlord's daughter does. And since they don't actually live here, what's the harm in browsing the pages a little, right?] | [Lip gloss pencil] | [Last night's game. We lost, but I got to spend a wonderful 3 hours staring at Tony Romo walk the sidelines with a headset on]

It's been exactly a week since our stuff was finally delivered, and I've been in major unpacking and cleaning mode all week (with a small project for my old employer thrown in...yay for work!). The dust is really kicking my allergies and eczema into high gear, so we're heading to Ikea this weekend to grab some more storage and unpack the rest of this stuff. Things are fitting in quite nicely, though!
