Mother was always right.
“I told you”, she would always say.
“I told you.”
I know, mom.
I should have done what you told me.
Even at the airport on my way to Afghanistan she wanted to give me her St. Christopher’s medal, but I said no.
I could hear the words “I told you” when I was lost in India.
Here are a few other times when she used these words:
“I told you not to leave the house and play with those firecrackers!”
Fortunately, I only got second degree burns.
“I told you not to take that BB gun with you!”
This was on a hiking trip with my dad and Uncle Ron to find LOST LAKE in Colorado.
I don’t know whether they ever found it.
The trip was interrupted when I fell down on some rocks in a stream---holding onto my Daisy BB gun!
My fall produced an ugly gash on my forehead, and I had to be taken to a medical facility.
“I told you not to buy that motorcycle!”
I begged my mom to sign a paper to grant me permission to buy a motorcycle, since I wasn’t 21.
She didn’t actually say to me “I told you” for this incident, but her words were tossing around in my brain as my bike and I fell down on a gravely, winding road in Sunshine Canyon.
I’m sure there were other times.
When I remember I’ll add them here.
IT’S ABOUT RENEWABLE RESOURCES!
