There was a girl I really liked in high school. One day she stopped talking to me and it stung that she avoided me for a whole year.

I later found out that a few others called her impersonating me and were pretty nasty to her. I never learned exactly what was said, but it was clear from the cold shoulder that I was more than just a friend at that point.

Even when the truth was revealed, the relationship was never the same.

My older sister taught me to read by playing our Disney read-aloud tapes for me every night while leading me through the words in the books. I found out years later that she used the tapes to muffle the noise of our parents arguing downstairs. I find it heartbreaking that she was deprived of her childhood.

My boyfriend used to stay at my house and play video games. We went to my mom’s room when she called to help turn the mattress. Next, we visited another friend’s house. “There were two twenty dollar bills on top of the dresser; did you get them?” my mother asked the friend over the phone. No, I replied. My friend told me no when I asked.

Five minutes later my friend had forty bucks in two twenty-dollar bills and asked if we wanted to go to the toy store. I accept and then we go buy me something, like a yo-yo.

Years passed before I realized that my acquaintance had stolen the money.

I had huge, strangely inexplicable gaps in my childhood memories that were always uncomfortable. It’s not just simple forgetfulness; I’ve experienced this a few times as an adult. I seem to suffer from a dissociative disorder which is associated with amnesia.

When I was a kid we sometimes had white bread, butter, and sugar sandwiches for dinner. We were pretty impoverished, so even though I thought it was great, I didn’t recognize it until I was an adult.

My father would take me to strange houses or hotels when I was between four and six years old and make me stay in one place for hours.

I was never sure why until one day it dawned on me that my dad was forcing me to accompany him on all his activities behind my mother’s back. It wasn’t until about a year ago that I realized this. In elementary school science class, we studied recessive and dominant genes. My parents were both black-haired and brown eyed and I was blonde with green eyes so I didn’t understand the concept.

That was probably in the fifth or sixth grade. Later, when I was a teenager, I saw that some of the hair in my beard was red, but I didn’t really think much of it because no one in my family had red hair.

I found out I was a sperm bank baby at the age of 28. Then everything made sense.

In seventh grade, I would get these horrible little white lumps in my mouth every now and then that smelled like rotting food combined with incredibly bad breath. I didn’t know what they were, but once they stopped I forgot about them until someone brought up the term “tonsil stones”. As it happened, I hacked right into it. The smell was just awful, ugh.

When I was a kid, we lived in some run-down apartments. I remember having several dreams where he tickled me in the middle of the night.

When I crunched the numbers a few years later, I knew it wasn’t a dream. The apartment was infested with roaches and I was literally tickled.

My wife claimed it wasn’t her lipstick when she discovered a tissue in my pocket after a few weeks of marriage. How it got into my pocket was a mystery to me. I was accused of having an affair for several months. One day I realized it was the same shade as my “affair proof” tissue while I was cleaning my mouth after eating a sandwich and sipping red Gatorade.

26 years later, we’re stronger than ever, but I swear when I talk about it, I feel like she’s not quite convinced. Many children with very wealthy parents attended the international school I attended in Asia; most of them were dropped off by their driver in a brand-new Mercedes. My family was working class and I was on scholarship.

My mother dropped us off at school before everyone else and parked the car a mile away behind this big tree, something I never understood. She just told me that exercising before school was a good idea.

Turns out mother was ashamed of our little Mitsubishi and didn’t want the other kids to make fun of me if they noticed we weren’t as rich as them.

I kept Thad as a safety net for far longer than I should have. I was about six when it disappeared. My brother told me he used to store things in a secret closet he discovered under the floor of the laundry room when we moved out of the house when I was thirteen. He hid it for almost ten years. Inside was my blank. In fifth grade, I had a substitute teacher present a puzzle to the class. Then he promised to give us the solution the next day.

But I never saw that submarine again. I’ve been trying to fix it for over a decade.

My notes are full of failed attempts. throughout my job, college, middle school, and high school! I never gave up.

Even if I put it off for months, I would always come back to it. I would try to find a solution even during meetings.

Then one day, after fifteen years of trying to figure it out, I Googled it. To be honest, I was a little devastated when I found out that there was no way to fix this problem.

to find that the problem is theoretically unsolvable after spending so much time trying to solve it. I suppose that qualifies as a “fix”.

I was never a good sleeper and woke up a lot at night when I was younger. It got worse after I moved out.

My father’s sleep apnea was discovered, and since our rooms were next to each other, his snoring woke me up until it resumed. I never realized this until I was in my early 20s and had a snoring partner who would give me the best sleep of my life.
