Born with a silver spoon in the mouth

The above title is one usually used to describe one who is born already rich, having parents who are wealthy. My parents were both fisherfolks and lived on a day to day basis. If there was no catch for the day, there would be no food on the table. Even when my mother was on the family way, she still assisted my father with the fishing chore. One day, while my father was away to fish offshore, my mother went on labor to give birth to me. Neighbors brought my mother to the local hospital where she gave birth to me without my father around. When my father arrived, he had the surprise of his life. There was a paddle in my mouth! Suddenly I fell off my bed and realized that it was all a dream - my parents being fisherfolks and my having a paddle in the mouth when I was born LOL!

There was no continuation to the story about my growing up LOL! Your name reminds me of the song of the Lettermen entitled "Here, there, everywhere" so from now on, can I call you Ms. Everywhere? LOL!

Ha ha ha, I read this story and didn't expect the ending. I really thought that you were born into a family of fisherfolks and had a paddle in your mouth. I don't know why, but for some reason it all made sense to me in a weird way.

I thought this post was something serious. But you gave a twisted ending. A baby cannot have a paddle on his mouth. It is too big for a baby.

maybe it's something about your past life? or the life you never had? but it's just a dream anyway. that's just surprisingly weird.
