What I Remember About Childhood Punishments
When I was a kid, I tried not to get into trouble. My sister was pretty rebellious, and she was a few years older than me - I saw it wasn't doing much for her, so I didn't make waves.I tried my best to behave, get good grades, and be helpful around the house. But, I wasn't perfect, of course. And sometimes if I said something my Mom didn't like, well, I got the soap.
And IF I remember rightly, it was Lava brand soap. The green stuff that your Dad would keep under the sink in case he was working in grease or something. I don't know if I'm remembering that all correctly or if I'm re-writing history in my memory to fit in with "The Christmas Story".
I don't think I am, though - because I remember the Lava soap as green - and if I'm right, Ralphie has got a mouthful of Lifeboy there. Anyway, sometimes my Grandmother would make me take Cod Liver Oil if she felt like I wasn't healthy enough, and sometimes if I sassed over at my other Grandmother's house, I had to get extra broccoli.
What about you guys? Did you get any kind of punishment as a kid with food?
