In childhood I was a strange child. No, they did not beat me, did not hurt me and did not tease me. I did not eat kozyavki and was not plump. I loved animals more than people, dreamed of becoming a veterinarian and a vegan and protecting nature. ⠀ my favorite animal was an alligator, with all sincerity I believed that he was angry, because he was not loved, and when crocodiles would feel the love of at least one little man, they would become kinder. I kissed frogs and saved fireflies from children. ⠀ once a boy from our yard brought me a bouquet of lilacs. I was sick, went out into the corridor with temperature, and broke into a smile that he came to visit. but when a bunch of freshly picked branches looked out from behind his back, she said: “Do you know how painful the tree made? I don't want to be friends with you ever again. ” closed the door in front of his nose and never spoke to him again. he ran out in tears from the front door. Mom explained that it’s not so possible with the boys, that this is a manifestation of attention, that the flowers are good, that it’s so right. but the indignant 7-year-old soul could not forgive such a betrayal. ⠀ I still do not like flowers for no reason and I want to protect the planet. she is going to be green. no housewife likes guests who leave dirt behind and break furniture, right?
