when i was a child…….
i thought i could jump high enough and wave a hand at the moon to see my shadow waving back at me
i started digging the ground, curious enough to find out which continent i would find myself in at the other end of it
i listlessly read sentences to convert them to passive-voice, later re-read them enthusiastically to convert them to active-voice
i pushed the train coach from inside when the train i was traveling in would stop abruptly at signals
i chased the sun for a mile to only discover that it ran with me further away
i always wondered why people didn’t fall off to the ground as they stood on the curved surface of the earth
i thought light bulbs could as well be opened for the source of light to shine all the more
i thought eggs were stamped with social security numbers to assign to the chickens they would hatch into
will keep adding more as i recollect….
Tell me what similar (perhaps more imaginative) thoughts came to your mind when you were a child
