There were some girls in school that were part of the fast crowd. They partied hard, they led a looser lifestyle than I did. I was always the wide-eyed innocent. Some even called me Gidget. Those of a certain age will totally get the reference. However, there WAS a day when I dipped my toe in the bad-girl pool.
You may roll your eyes and say–’oooh what an edgy chick; life on the edge’….what can I say? I was generally a goody two-shoes..At my elementary school we were not allowed to have/eat candy during class. However, if we had a bad cough, we were allowed to have and eat cough drops. One day I had the brilliant idea to buy a box of cough drops and a package of M & Ms.
I emptied the cough drops out of the box, leaving the inner sack within the cough drop box. Then I dumped the M & Ms into the cough drop box, and put the cough drop box into the pocket of my uniform. All morning long I fake coughed and took some M&Ms from the cough drop box, trying to be oh so convincing that they were cough drops. When it was time to change classes, we lined up as usual to file out of the classroom. My teacher stood by the door as we passed, and brushed up against me elbow (I was holding onto my cough drop box that was in my pocket). The cough drop box fell onto the floor….hard. The box flipped open and M&Ms scattered everywhere…..oh boy did I get it!
I had to write 500 times something about never again disappointing her and God by lying and not following the rules…..and I never broke a school rule again….LOL. Yep—life on the edge!!!
So you see, I was at one point a BAD girl!!!
