Where You Found Her You Would Find Mr. Fine
Growing up wasn't always easy. There were a lot of hardships I went through. It is easier to forget the bad and remember just the good. I remember my first job and the first time I got fired. Getting lost and getting found. Getting hurt and somehow better over time. The only time I remember being healed is when I got hurt again. There are some people that will never forget. There was this one time when I went to go to the store to buy a comic book. I didn't have a lot of money but my mother said I could buy one. My father disagreed with my mother and said doesn't he have enough. He doesn't read the ones he has. Oh, shoosh. Let him buy something he enjoys. Off to the store I went. I would go to an old table in the middle of the store where comic books were tossed not in any order. One on top of the other. So you had to pick through. You would see a superhero after superhero. Archie comics and some names I never saw before. So many choices. I could spend hours reading a little of one comic-book and then putting it down and reading another. While I was in comic-book heaven in walks Ms.Ence. She was looking to buy curtains or something like that. I didn't pay much attention. Until Ms. Ence seen me. She looked at me while she was rolling her eyes. Kids these days. Always filling their heads with dreams and fantasies. When they should be home helping around the house. I heard her and I have heard her say things in the past. My mother told me don't pay much attention to her. She has something to say about everyone. But her boyfriend Mr. Fine can do no wrong. She is with him all the time. They plan on being married one day. My mother did not know who to feel bad for Mr. Fine Or Ms. Ence. Imagine wherever you go you had to be followed around like a puppy. You could never make up your own mind. I don't remember when she left but I realized she was gone. When all I could hear was my loud voice reading the next comic book title Boom!!! The Shock Shook The Whole Planet! I could no longer hear Yes. Dear. No dear. If you like that then that is what we will get. I agree with you. Whatever you say, dear. I soon picked up the best comic-book of all and went home later that day. My mother and father were both right. My mother told me not to listen to anything Ms. Pence has to say because she would get me mad. Then my father was right I really didn't need another comic-book and I don't think I even finished that one I bought today.

Gypsy Rose Lee I had such a love for reading at an early age too. I think I enjoyed all the pictures in the comic books more than anything else. When we get older there was just more writing and fewer and fewer pictures. The good thing is you had romance novels to dream about what the future would be like. Maybe that helped you become the wonderful writer you are today? Thank you for always finding time to leave comments and important thoughts.

My first comic books were Huey the Duck and then Donald Duck and so on. After it was all the Archie comics I could get my hands on and finally as childhood faded into my teen years all those Romance comic books.
