Daily Prompt

The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called Childhood Revisited, and this is what it said:

What is your earliest memory?

Describe it in detail, and tell us why you think that experience was the one to stick with you.

And this is my response:

One of my earliest memories is probably a memory of when I was a kid living with my parent’s in The R Trailer and I left The R Trailer during the night without my parent’s knowing that I was gone when my mom’s side of the family was having a family gathering at my grandparent’s (my grandmother DE and my grandfather CE) house, I walked over to my grandparent’s house first and I saw some of my family members there having a good time and they probably said a few things to me, and then I walked over to my aunt ME’s house next door to The R Trailer for some unknown reason(s) (maybe I got lost and confused and/or I was looking for someone); and I remember my aunt ME, my cousin ME, and several other family members being there.

I remember one of my family members asking me where my parent’s were and if they knew where I was, they probably called my parent’s or walked me home or told me to go back home, and at some point I remember returning to The R Trailer to my parent’s who were surprised to learn that I had left without them knowing it.

I have no idea why this memory stuck with me exactly, maybe because I somewhat got lost and confused because of all the noise that my family members were making as they partied and because I never did anything like that before and because it was dark, but that is my wild guess.

Dream

I did not voice record any of my dreams from last night and so I forgot all of my dreams from last night except for barely part of my last dream which was very long and very unclear, but I will type what I remember of this dream.

All that I can remember of this dream is that a lot of the dream took place inside a fictional shopping mall during the day, I was inside the mall in a small narrow quiet section of a store, and there was a walkway that passed through the middle of this store that would take you through the store and into the rest of the mall.

I have no idea what I was doing there but I seemed to be waiting and/or looking for someone and/or something because I spent a lot of time looking around various aisles of the store like I was wasting time and waiting, and many things happened during this time that I can not remember.

I know that my mom and maybe some other people I know were in the dream briefly, I know that a lot of the dream was boring and realistic, and I know that some strange things happened during the dream that I can not remember.

During one part of the dream I remember finding a shelf that had some small chocolate candies covered in different colored pieces of foil, these chocolate candies had no price on them, and they seemed to be free treats for shoppers; and so I remember eating some and keeping some.

At some point in the dream it is possible that a man with a handgun entered the store, maybe there was a robbery or shooting or I and/or someone else managed to get the man to put the handgun away, but I can not remember; I just know that something strange happened, but I probably still did not leave the store because I still seemed to be waiting and/or looking for someone/something.

There is a lot more that happened in this dream before this and some things that happened after this, but that is all that I can remember at this time.

The end,
