Life was Easy
Life was easy when my biggest concern was convincing Daddy to let me go in the water with everyone else during the summer.
Life was easy when, “Boys play with boys and girls play with girls” but I didn’t follow suit because some days I would be more interested going exploring through the bushes with the boys than sitting on the porch talking with the girls.
Life was easy when our classroom was outside in the backyard and my notebook was a flat stone and my pencil, the straightest little stick I could find.
Life was easy when the hardest math concept was shooting marbles. How did you score points anyway?
Life was easy when “Twee Lee, Lee” and other ring plays kept us entertained for an entire P.E. class.
Life was easy when you simply had to “Freeze! With ya cheesy panties and ya holey jockeys!”
