At my grandma’s house, I would mix large amounts of sugar together with chemicals I found in her basement. Once I had all the components, I would mix in a small amount of water to create a thick goo. I would put the goo on the sidewalk and would watch as the ants scurried to it. The ants would, of course, get stuck in the toxic goo. After a while, the ants would die.
I remember shoving a small plastic toy into a crack where the floor met the door frame.
There was a single solitary tree in the large field. The tree was visible from my home. However, the tree was far away. I had not visited the tree until I was much older.
There was an implant in part of the sidewalk, near my grandmother’s house, of a leaf that must have rested on top of the concrete as it dried. I was always very fascinated by it but I can’t remember why.
In grade three, my teacher had a jar of jelly beans on her desk. On rare occasions, we were allowed to take two beans. I always took the pink beans.
I remember finding plastic toys in a hole in a large field. I left small apples as offerings to whoever left their toys behind. Thanks again.
I remember a large stone that was covered in pebbles. The pebbles could be easily pulled off. I tried to pull a pebble off of the large stone, but my mother warned me not to.
