Reminiscing…

Our ‘100 word challenge’ set out here, where you’ll find a list giving links to all the responses, is to write 100 words (of course) including in the piece the additional seven words shown in bold print in my attempt below. 

In the centre stage part of my memory, I can remember the day I mastered the skill of fluent reading. I had been ill, and, once back at school, I asked for every reading book my teacher had in the book cupboard. I devoured them one after the other. I can also recall the day I found out that, if you just kept your nerve (and kept pedalling)while looking in front of you, a bike would stay upright and you wouldn’t fall off. From a later time, I hear again the words “You’ve passed your test, kid!”

In the dark recess of my mind, I remember… yesterday.

    Great childhood memories! Makes me wonder what was so bad about yesterday that that you’ve shoved it to the back somewhere.

  3. Great memories. Yesterday must have been bad.

    It wasn’t that yesterday was bad – just that short term memory is dull and vague by comparison! Thank you all for calling by!
