Nata, Zilch, Goose Egg, Zero, Absolutely NOTHING.
There, now I can write about what I REALLY came here to discuss…HIDING PLACES. Just in case you’re wondering, NO I am NOT running from the cops because I just robbed a bank or something, I’m talking about Hide and Go Seek Hiding Places.
I’m sure as a kid you played hide and seek occasionally didn’t you? Or even now, you might play it with your grandkids, friend’s kids, or perhaps even with those Seniors at the Nursing Home.
When I was a kid (3 years ago), don’t laugh or I’ll CUT you, I used to have the BEST hiding place EVER. I used to play Hide and Go Seek all the time. You know WHAT, I was NEVER found. I always thought it was because I had the best hiding place EVER, BUT, as I grew older, I thought it MAY have been because after they didn’t find me immediately like the other kids, they just GAVE UP and stopped looking.
Okay, Okay, I KNOW you’re curious as to WHERE this Hiding place was so I’ll tell you. My girlfriend Doris used to be a papergirl and she had a paper box in front of her house. Now for those of you who may not KNOW what I’m talking about, it was a wooden box that sat in front of your house where the news trucks would drop off papers for the paper boys and girls to deliver. I was small for my age, so I could open the box, get inside, and just let the world go by.
Finally, when I couldn’t hear any noise, I would open the box and run like HELL for home base. I was NEVER caught. Sometimes I would even dream about BEING a bank robber and then using the paper box as a hideout. Of course, at 8, you don’t THINK about stuff like you need FOOD and WATER, ‘cause you’ve got the BEST Hideout EVER.
It’s funny what you remember as you get older isn’t it? Even to this day I hold the record in my town for NEVER being caught. I never became a bank robber of course, but I still wonder sometimes…”What If”, was the paper box still available?
