I was six and didn’t want to be left out of anything that looked like “fun.” One day, my sister, Pat, five and a half years older than me, had friends over. I kept trying to get into her room to be part of the group. I was being a Pest.
My sister finally yelled out, “Daddy, come and get Carolyn or I’m gonna spank her.”
I looked at Dad and said, “Close the door, Daddy. Let’s see how this comes out.”
I wore bold and stubborn like badges on my sleeve.
AND, I had a purple and pink cow.
