If I knew then what I know now:
I would have paid more attention in math class
I would have not had a thirteen-foot afro after 1972
I would have copied down or recorded all of my grandmother’s recipes
I would have pressed my family for more information, concerning their immigration. That’s right folks, I’m ONLY second generation American!
I would have not squeezed my feet into those size 7 Tretorn sneakers, causing my feet to curl up and suffer like a 13th Century foot-binding victim
When my step-father called me a “bitch”, when I was all of seven in front of a slew of family, I should have said, “You stupid weak, man. Who calls a CHILD a nasty name? Then called out the family members that stood there.
I would have told someone how unhappy I was in the 5th grade
I would not have acted like one of the Heather’s
I would not have been so impulsive or afraid
I would understand how important money management is
