Running away for Ten Minutes

Here is another installment of my walk down childhood lane.
The first post did not get a lot of responses, but is that gonna stop me?
No friggen’ way!
So here is the story of when I ran away:

Running away for Ten Minutes
All I remember is I was pissed. Pissed at my older sister; I do not remember why or how old I was.
I do know that at eight years older, she probably thought she had a right to boss her little sister around.
I’d show her! I was running away!
She’d be in a panic and would come running out looking for me with tears of regret in her eyes, wringing her hands, and regretting her actions!
That would show her!

I ran away about 2 inches into the woods and waited and waited and waited…well probably only about 10 minutes and then I ran all the foot and half home expecting hugs, people to be worried, and possibly a chewing out.

None of that happened.

Sister was calmly sitting on the couch watching television when I came in pouting; if she noticed me at all she made no acknowledgement of my presence.
And so I went into the bedroom I shared with two others, a dog, and a cat and cried my little broken heart out, unnoticed and feeling neglected.



I am me and nobody else. One of a kind just like the rest of the world.

      1. Practical. I wanted proofs of my importance. I am guessing you got what you wanted unlike me. 🙂

  1. Aww, that’s got to be a horrible feeling for a child. Thinking that no one noticed you were missing. 😦 I ran away once, but I took a plane when I did! ((hugs))

    1. It was really silly and it was not even noticed. Really? Braver than me I only got a few feet away from the house.

  2. I don’t remember that. Was it me? It sounds like something I would do. Never been one for the “drama”. Probably thought you’d learn your lesson. I ran away once; also to the woods. I would have kept going but I got “dragged” back into the house. These words by my older sister haven’t haunted me my whole life. ” You can’t run away because I will get into trouble.” I wasn’t hoping for anyone to come get me. I wanted to be left alone. (:

    1. It was you and you never even looked up…so, I figured you didn’t even know I was gone..which made me mad as hell. LOL

      1. I probably didn’t even know you ran away. You were very quiet most of the time and a little sneaky. Sorry I caused you so much trauma! (:

Got something nice to say, witty, silly, profound, demented, redundant or redundant? Go ahead make my day!
