Did you have have this book as a child? Our family did. I think it was mine originally although who knows anymore. When I was younger I’d give it to my brothers for their birthdays because it was my favorite book, and my next birthday they’d give it back.
“You have brains in your head and feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You’re on your own and you know what you know.
And you are the one who’ll decide where to go.” -Dr. Seuss
I read over the worn and scribbled pages of that book and dreamed about that glorious moment when I would become 18 and then again when I turned 21. I would be an adult. I’d have liberty. I could move out and strike out on my own, make decisions for my life. As much I as I wish I could look back on my childhood with warm fuzzy nostalgia, being an adult is just the best.
