Tasks / The Way I Remember It...

Recreate one of your early childhood memories from the point of view of another person from that memory. There is, of course, a difference between talking about something you remember and recreating a memory. That said, how you recreate yours is up to you.

I'm curious what you had in mind for

Perhaps that is the aspect left open to interpretation, but would you really be rushing a kid with an obstructed nostril to a doctor's office as a completion? Anyone have a small (and cooperative) child handy?

EDIT: Apparently the preceding comment discussion about someone's memory of shoving something up their nose as a kid was removed. I promise in context I did not sound like someone who assumed everyone has a stock memory of severe rhino-obstetrics in their childhood, or alternately someone who enjoyed assaulting small children in tasks.

haha, that was me... i was curious to see whether a rock stuck to the bottom of my friend's shoe smelled like feet (rather scientific for a five year old, no?) and i took too much of an enthusiastic whiff while holding this very particularly shaped rock near my nose. it's not like i had to get surgery or anything - it just wasn't coming out on its own!

if i were to re-create this, i was definitely NOT intending to use a child in my place!! i would probably assume the role of my panicked mother and her take on the situation, getting the phone call from the kindergarten, her shock at seeing me with a rock up my nose, thoughts going through her head while driving me home to the family doctor, etc etc

i was thinking along the lines that most early childhood memories are traumatic or amusing, but how would others perceive the same situation?

my brother stuck a coffee bean up his nose at one point and it was there for at least a month. I like to think it explains some things.

One of my first memories is when I was about 2 years old, during a party my parents were having, one of their friends asked me, "Do you love your mother or your father more?". It was a distressing moment because I realized that no matter what I said...
