Podcast 2; Oldest of None, Youngest of Eight – My First Family Vacation
Like I said in the previous intro, take nothing for granted. Not even a trip in the middle of the night to pick up a family member because he got a little off track. Well, I considered that a vacation and so the following week when I returned to grade school, I shared that getaway trip with my whole class. The next thing I know I was in the principal’s office telling him the story. I thought they were all in ahhh, but what was actually happening is they were concerned with my well being. Ultimately it was all for the sake of bringing my brother home because he ran away and ended up in a jail in the next state, but the teacher and administration thought the story went a little too far and might frighten the other children in my class. Growing up youngest of eight, you just learn to roll with it.
