My Earliest Memory

As I assume it was….

fetus

Well, I was just hanging out when I realized, I couldn’t stretch my legs. As I pushed, I would roll. Odd but fun.

My first science experiment had proven that ,” Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.” Brilliant!

Sight was not possible and I remained unaware of it until a moment came, when I was so very crowded, I could not stand it! Call me claustrophobic but I am NOT happy.

Waves of energy pushed on me until…WOW! “Let there be light!”

Ouch…too bright.

Oh my! Approximately 14 pounds per square inch. Gravity…you are not my brother and you are very heavy.

Gosh…my skin is crawling. I am freezing!

Forget handing me around, somebody better cover me up.

Ugh…don’t these morons know that washing me adds to the cold!

A piercing sound…did that come from me? Cool…this is going to be handy when I need something. Look at those big people scramble.

Why is everyone smiling…this has been the worst day ever!

If this is an example of birthdays…I think I’ll pass on any more!

  1. Loved the way you wrote it….we’d all be saying exactly that if we remembered the day we were born.
    “A piercing sound…did that come from me? Cool…this is going to be handy when I need something” This was really really cute hehe 🙂

  2. Dear Susan,

    Are you alright? I know you are not usually on Plinky on weekends, but today it Tuesday, and I’m beginning to worry a bit.

    I hope you have just gotten some time for yourself as the kids are now probably back in school. Nut, I just want to be sure you are OK…

    • You are so very kind to worry:-)
      I am fine…got a little tired of those Plinky prompts about ourselves. Also, I’m on vacation next week…lots to do to prepare. I’ll be away from the computer for a while…back around the 12th.
      Your friend,
      Susan

  3. Who would EVER think of writing a first-person poem from the fetal home? This was sweet, funny, imaginative and even a bit whimsical (maybe that’s just me, remembering when my daughter was still inside me)
    I liked the first line about pushing and rolling and the reaction to that being “odd but fun”
    Nice work!

Tell me something good...
