**Disclaimer: All names mentioned in the following story have been changed. **
There are some stories from my elementary school days that I still remember although it was back in the 90s. This just happens to be one of those stories. Of course I’m changing the names of those involved in the off chance that they are on social media and because that I don’t remember them all. The year was 1995 and I was in the 4th grade at the time. My class was heading out to recess when this girl “Taylor” gave all the girls in our class Jolly Ranchers to eat. It happened to be seven of us including her cousin “Brittany”. Now I don’t know how the rules are now in elementary schools, but at that time you couldn’t eat at recess. If you were caught it would result in a paddling (three times) which we all knew. The other girls didn’t seem to care & ate them anyway. As for yours truly,I took it, but didn’t eat it. Instead I threw it away in the blue outside trash can . I did this for a number of reasons 1) I knew it was against the rules. 2) I never got a paddling before or trouble period in school & that day was going be the 1st time. 3) It was cherry flavored and I am not big fan of cherry (natural or fake) which is still true today. 4) Lastly, I knew I would be in trouble with my then step dad when I got home as well. We had three PE teachers (one white and two black). To this day I can tell you guys why we needed all three at the same time or at all.
Anyways, “Ms. Baker” saw one of the other girls eating the Jolly Rancher. I guess either one of them told on all the other girls or each girl told on one another them because after PE was over they all were taken to the girls’ bathroom for a paddling. Now keep in this was one of the fraternity paddles and our principal had a nickname for it. So of course they were crying and this when “Taylor” mentioned that I had a Jolly Rancher as well. “Ms. Jackson” comes over to me. I tell her I threw mine away and then proceed to show her my tongue and empty pant pockets as proof my innocence. So she lets me go to class without a paddling. Of course the other girls are now mad at me and the boys in this class are wondering what’s going on. Now I could have not accept the Jolly Rancher from “Taylor” or told on them myself, but I didn’t. However, I learn that day they wouldn’t have hesitate to tell on me when face with trouble. This situation along with other ones further down the road taught me it was not always a good thing to go along in order to fit in. It’s okay to do your own thing and avoid unnecessary drama.
Funny thing is many years later I ran into “Brittany” with the 1st time being when we were both on a field trip during middle school (different schools). She thought I didn’t remember her, but I did. My parents transferred me out of the public elementary school in the 5th grade and enroll me back in private school (long story for another post). After that I had two classes with her in college before I transferred to design school which I would later graduate from. Yes, I have attended multiple schools from kindergarten to college (public and private). To be mildly it took a lot of adjustment and making new friends on my part. My mom always tells me I should write a book about my life, but I always countered with who would believe some of the stories. Of course, I would have to change names and characteristics to avoid being sued or etc.
