Every now and then I think back to my childhood!
It was nothing of the kind that you write a book about.
It was not that exciting, just the normal, common place childhood noted for playing on the streets, fighting with bullies, and skipping school!
But it was my childhood and, to me, it was nothing short of stupendous!
I wished I could go back and do it all over again!
I would not necessarily change anything, but maybe I would!
I know I would still not to have a dog's chance of dating pretty Minnie Myers!
She would not think much of me no matter how much I tried!
I would have to have changed into nothing less than a football star for her to notice me!
No! I wouldn't do anything different for her!
But maybe I would have been different to Ursula Choin!
She was also nothing more than an average girl，but I think that she secretly loved me!
And now that I know how important that could have been, I might have talked to her some more!
When she loved me I was a wild child who could not sit still for a minute!
I got in trouble, had bad grades, and terrible clothes, not to mention horrible body odor! I was a boy and not yet a man!
But if I would have paid attention to her, I think there would have been nothing to it-we would have been boyfriend and girlfriend.
And so I think of how it might have been! Oh, well, I'll never know!
