Fragments Of Me

Reblogging this for anyone who may have missed it the first time around. This story is probably my favorite post of all.

Happy Friday to all.

The Lonely Author


When we were young our lives consisted of questions.

The questions we needed answered. The hundreds of questions our parents and teachers asked.

But a ten year old was never meant to have all the answers.

My classmates attended the big party. Stupid me promised to dance with every girl. Boys stood on one side, girls on the other.

My friends taunted me. “Go dance.”

With wobbly knees and sweaty forehead, I tried to look cool.

Then I spotted Lisa Big Boobies Barelli. Oh my, she could fill up a B-cup like no other girl in school.

Ever since kindergarten when she first smiled at me, I knew the other girls didn’t compare. Lisa had all her teeth.

From across the room I admired her.

Who cares if she had rounder cheeks than the other girls?

  1. Oh…my…goodness!!! This is absolutely adorable in every single way possible. Lisa was a cutie with all her teeth and ability to fill her B cup 😉 Good for her and nice of you to notice! I really love the ending where you said sometimes answering a question with a question is the best. I totally agree 🙂 Happy Friday Andrew, you made it and made it well my friend. 🙂

    Even as an adult, there are very few pictures of a smiling me. Sigh.

          1. As children, we bear the scars and the wounds show in our faces. Not many people see them. I dare say that nobody saw mine. I think they show now.
            I wonder if your lovely Allie sees the pain that inevitably escapes now and then. It’s still there, you know.


    1. Sorry, Paul, I don’t participate in the accepting or giving of awards. I am so tied up with my writing and trying to market my work, I barely have time for my family. Thank you for thinking of me. I am honored that youthought I deserved this award. Thanks and be well.
