Long weekends and laid back moments bring me to recall thoughts I had as a child. I was further encouraged to write down these innocent (or ignorant?) thoughts from thirty-some years ago when I watched a Korean teleseries titled The Legend of the Blue Sea, where the lead actress playing a mermaid who came to land asked almost the same questions I did when I was young. It’s both funny and relieving to know I was not the only one who thought so.
- Where do the small people inside the TV go to when the show ends? This, as I carefully tiptoed and peeped through the back of the TV.
- I’m arranging my toys closer together so they won’t walk far when they wake up when the clock strikes 12.
- I’ll dig a deep enough hole on this soil and fill it with small rocks so the water from the rain won’t seep through. This is so smurfs will have a pool they can swim in when they pass through our garden.
- Looking up when an airplane passes by: Lucky are the peope inside the plane – they’re closer to God and they probably could see Care Bears playing in the clouds now.
- When playing in an open field: I wish I can find a four-leaf clover for luck.
- When I play next to an anthill: I have to be careful not to disturb the fairies living in this small hill.
- My first heartbreak: For the longest time I’ve had a crush on a ‘cast’ of Voltron. And then my friend’s older brother smirked and said cartoons were not real.
What are the childhood thoughts that you still remember and make you smile now?
