- rollerskates were rollershoes (rolschaatsen -> rolschoenen)
- my cousin Chris was Criss Cross
and probably a lot more. i'll ask my mom.

oh, and there was this story about me being at the butcher's with my mom.. someone stepped on my toe and i cried out:


then the whole shop went silent and everybody was looking at me. i apparently felt i had to explain myself and said:

"that's what daddy always says!"
zoek waar je wil, maar het zit in jezelf

oh yeah

When i was 4 I asked the ultimate question - where do babies come from? so my mum and dad told me all about the "special cuddle", and I asked them to show me. They said it was something mummies and daddies did and I'd learn about it when I needed to. (very PC of them).
So that night my dad comes into my room and I'm crying inconsoleably and refused to say what was wrong. My mum came up and eventually got it out of me - I was so upset because I thought I could never have childern - nobody would show me the special cuddle! (Thankfully I don't remember that one).

However it gets worse - a few days later we had to do a "presentation" in school, of course I decided to tell my whole class about where babies came from. When I got to testicles one of the boys said "I don't have those!" So I grabbed him and pointed, shouting YES YOU DO THEY'RE THOSE!" (Again I don't remember this but my headteacher wrote about it on my report card!!!)

I remember singing 'yellow sumbarine' instead of 'yellow submarine'

Once, when I was in the first years of memory, I was digging a hole at the beach near the shoreline. I was sitting in that way that very small children do, legs splayed wide in front, grabbing satisfying fistfuls of wet sand and throwing them off to the side. I hit a squishy patch of some unimaginable lake ooze, and a horrible smell rose from it. I reared back.

"Hey, Mom!" I hollered to her some fifteen feet away on a blanket. "MY HOLE STINKS!"
