Getting to know your family-Becky

Just got a response from the getting to know your family questionnaire from Becky. Becky is my cousin, daughter of Joni, grand daughter of Edith & Merlin.

In reading over Becky's responses I had to laugh when I got to her favorite toy as a child. Her answer was a troll doll. Funny thing, that was my favorite of Becky's toys too. When I was about 10 or so our family had been visiting the Bunker's and Becky let me play with her troll the whole time we were there. When it was time to go home, I didn't want to part with my new favorite toy. So I stole it. Yes you heard me right, I'm admitting that I was a thief.

When it was time to leave I stuck the troll on my head & put on my hood to my coat to cover it up. As we were leaving my dad patted me on the head & thought something felt funny, but I told some lie & he believed me. Can you believe I'm admitting to being so evil?

Well on the drive home I was sleeping in the back of the station wagon (back then we didn't wear seatbelts). When I fell asleep the hood of my coat fell back & exposed the stolen troll.

Boy did I get into trouble when we got home. I had to mail back the troll to Becky with a written apology. I felt so bad that I got caught. Come on, you know the guilt would have gotten to me if I hadn't gotten caught. So Becky got her favorite toy back & I got in a bunch of trouble.

So there you have it, I have now confessed to the world the one time I stole something. See I am not perfect. lol.

Kim you are too funny. I must have been too little because I don't remember you getting in trouble for the stolen troll. You bad girl!
It's fun getting responses back from the cousins... I wonder why Becky likes Tuesdays so much? A whole other post in itself, I am sure!!!
