I Forgot

      When I was 6 or 7 years old, schools use to have vaccination day. On those days parents could bring the younger kids from home to get their shots. Here we are in a long line up waiting for our turn to see one of two nurses. I was in line with my Mother and my little brother who was 2 ½ years younger than I was and not in school yet. When it came to my turn, the nurse asked me what my name was so she could make sure she had the right recording chart. As this was happening, my kid brother who was behind me starts pulling at my Mother’s dress. He finally got her attention and she leans down to listen to what he wanted. He says: “What is my name?” True story! We still tease him about that day.
