A Really, Really Long Time Ago

When I was younger I used to write stories and give them to my parents. Sometimes I freaked them out (Do Not write stories about parents abusing their children and then give said story to parents).

You see, we used to live in VA and we knew the Dude who was running for Governor and got all sorts of Free Paper from him that had fancy holes in the side. Perfect! And why was this perfect?Because yarn fit into these holes so easily. See?

Because of how Ridiculous this story was, I knew I had to share it with you all. I kept all of the original terrible spelling because I believe that sometimes children understand spelling better than the English language.

Here is "The Best Friends" as told by my past self. I like to call her Pasomi. Notes by my present self are in Blue, because Blue is Pretty.

Wonc apan [I know I'm trying to say once upon, but all I can think of is wonking pans] a time ther was a littel boy. He was very rood. And in thet Land far away ther was a Littel Girl [I love how she gets capitalized, but the boy doesn't]. She was very pliat [*cough* Polite is a hard word to spell] She and the boy war Prins and Prinses. Won day the dad said thet The Prinses shood have a freind but the Princ was the only one. the Parints war sad.

"We have to trie," said the dad.

"Do we have to?"

"Yes we do."

The next day they drot [meaning brought. I got d's and b's confused All the Time] the Prinses to the casil but she did not like it very much. Wen thay got ther the Prince did not Like it ether. Thay had to play together.

"Yuk," said the boy.

"Yuk indeed," [Favorite Line!] said the girl.

"Do we have to?"

"Yes you do."

"Please can I go and play somethen els?"

"No, you must play whith hir."

After a wile thay war best frainds and they married and had lots of boys and Gils [I think I meant girls, unless the girl was really a fish] and got a cat and a dog and lived hapily ever The End.

I can't help but be reminded of the Swan Princess. Prince and Princess not liking each other? Being forced to play? Weird.

And there is something seriously wrong if the Only Person in the World that she can be friends with is this boy. Where are all the other children? No wonder they had lots of babies. They're trying to re-populate their world, duh. *rolls eyes*

OMG! Firstly, I love the "yuck indeed" line too. Perfect!

Secondly "b" and "d" were tricksy for me too. VERY TRICKSY.

And for my grand finale, I GOT GIVEN THAT SAME PAPER. My dad worked somewhere that still had the old printers that print on them. They may not be EXACTLY the same, but from what I remember, the you could tear down the sides of the margins. TRES fun.

HAHAHA! I love this! Cute story, by the way. :D
Love that spelling. Much better than mine. :)
And I would write stories when I was younger. Loved it. I'm not quite sure if I actually showed my parents. Maybe when I was much younger. But not recently. Child abuse stories shouldn't be shown to parents. ;)
Not that I write about child abuse. Not my kinda thing.
But. I agree. I think they were trying to repopulate the world. *tries to keep a straight face. fails miserably.*

This is precious!!! I like that the Prins and Prinses *had* to play together, lol! And girls is always capitalized! So cute!

I still have my stories from when I was little, too. I used to ask my parents to write blurbs for me on the back cover. They're probably the best blurbs I'll ever get, LOL!!! Nothing like proud parents humoring their child! :)

Ahahahahahahaha! Why don't I remember this story?! That's so great. HA! Yeah, so no witty comments because I can't even spell. (It took me 4 tries to spell witty) But what do you want? It's midnight. You should just be gald I'm com... GLAD I'm commenting at all. Um. Yeah.

How wonderful that you kept this and could share it with us today.

I did something similar in the fourth grade, making my own book. I used minuscule notebook paper. It didn't look quite right. I wrote about a princess, too!

I haven't officially read this latest post, of course, because I want you to be safe in your automotive travels, but if, hypothetically speaking, I had, it would've been both absolutely adorable and strangely reminiscent of the hilariously haphazard spelling of Elizabethan-era England (i.e., the dayes in whitch lived wone Will Shaxberd).

VW: mookd — Toined inta some kinda knucklehead, see.

hey, i like your new blog banner!
Of course they had a lot of children. I mean, nothing else to do, clearly.
Also i got your package in the mail - thanks so much! The pillow is so pretty!

Sara said...

Awesome post!! Isn't it amazing to look back at childhood writing? I totally oved the "Yuk!" And the photos are priceless.

Love your blog! :)

@Mia: *sigh* I loved that paper :)

@Wolfie402: Haha... Yes, I learned that the hard way. I was confused about my parents.

Have you thought about posting a story that you wrote when you were younger? I would love to see one :D

@Laura: That's cute :) Oh, and pfffft... I'm sure you'll get good blurbs for your books. I know I'm excited to see what you end up writing.

@Rebecca: I don't know. I'd think that mum would've hidden the abuse story, not this one. And yes, I am glad you comment. I am so glad, in fact, that if I was sleeping I would do a samnata.

Paige: Really? A TV? You should def post it! Thanks for visiting me back :D

Medeia: Thanks! :) I think it's funny that I wrote a princess story, because I was so anti-princess for so long.

Blam: *phew* I was worried for a moment there. Almost didn't get into my car 0_o.

@Falen: I'm glad you like it! :D

@Sara: Thanks! I had fun taking the picture. :)

Yuck indeed! Omigosh, how CUTE! :) I feel sad for the girl being stuck with that yucky boy and having to populate... lol!

Love it!

Kristan said...

Hahaha, too cute! Hmm, I wonder if I have any old stories I could dig up when I'm home this weekend... I wrote a pretty sweet little epic about a paper clip who had to go find her missing father...

AchingHope said...

@Miss Dangerous: Glad you like it! :D I too feel bad for the girl.

@Kristan: That sounds very entertaining. :D I know I would love to read it.
