  • ...everybody got to have a turn in the kiddie pool.

    I skipped mine because I wanted to wait and go in with my friend.

    When his turn came, I didn’t get to go.

    I hadn’t told anyone why I skipped my turn. I just skipped it and assumed I could go with my friend when it was his turn.

    I remember that it wasn’t fair.
