Yes you read right, I was a thug, a hooligan, a trouble maker. You see this face....
I explored my bad side people!
When I was in pre-school, I had to stand in the corner, do you want to know what for???? Well I will tell you. I was a drug-dealer at an early age! I Valarie Lea from Tennessee, now in Alabama, passed out Ludens Cherry Cough drops to the other 4 year olds in the class! There I said it! I did my time in the corner, but apparently that was not enough........
Along that same time, I was with my Mother and my Sister Lisa, (Robin could have been there, but she was just a little thing that I don't remember her being there) and we were at "Big K".
At this time in our lives it was ok for a 4 or 5 year old to go off and look at the toy section. Well I decided that I wanted something, and I was gonna get it! So I marched right up to the counter and grabbed me a pack of orange tic-tacs!
Its my one vice still to this day. I walked up to my mother and sister, just as proud as can be by my newly obtained love and thats when it happened.
Mama: Valarie Lea where did you get those tic-tacs!!!
Me: From up there
Mama: Where did you get the money to pay for them?!?!?!?
Me: Money? What's Money?!?
Mama: Come with me!
Picture it - Mother, dragging 5 year old through the store, while the 5 year old is screaming and crying and 12 year old sister is behind you probably saying, Oooo the police are gonna get you, you are going to jail!!!!!!
Mama: Here give this money to the cashier! You have to pay for those!!
Me: Waahaaaaaa!!! (as Mama forces my hand with the money up to the cashier)
So that was it, the end of my walk on the wild side, (that is until my teen years, we will not go there). I straightened up an flew right after that. (or did I)
To this day If I were to walk out of the store and have accidentally forgotten to pay for a pack of cough drops that were left underneath my purse, (not that that has happened or anything) I will march right back in and pay for them. That's just how I roll now.
I will completely understand if you do not think the same about me anymore. :)
So were you ever a trouble maker???
