@Setanta,
being treated like a baby by mommy who wants to be your best friend is a blast.

When I walked to school, I rode a horse, which was the easy part. Coming home, I carried the horse on my back. We wrangled over which got to eat first from the bag of oats.

My family lived in a shoebox in the middle of the road.

Going to a boarding school, I never had to endure the awful trauma of walking to school.
Father used to purchase a train ticket and leave me on the relevant platform at St Pancras Station when the school year started on January 3rd, and then pick me up on December 15th when school finished.

At least I think it was Father.

When I was a boy, the snows we had to deal with sometimes reached all the way up to my shoulders.

Now the snows are hardly ever even get up to my knees.

Kids these days have it soft all the way around.

I too had to walk to school uphill both ways and in the snow too. My parents would almost always beat me when I returned home, and often killed me.

Was it the chauffer?

Then that answers the question.

My family was so poor I never got any toys when I was a child. If I hadn't been born a boy I wouldn't have had anything to play with.

They used to tie an old, dry soup bone around my neck so the dog would play with me.

The house we lived in was so small the dog had to scratch sideways if he wanted to be let out.

I used to always lead the pack when it came to Tuesday Cross Country runs. Trouble was, I was made to wear a fox outfit.

To this day I still flinch when I hear a beagle howl.

We were so poor, that when a crumb of bread hit the floor, the cockroaches scrambled out to feed, singing: Clap your hands, stomp your feet. Praise the Lord, we got somethin to eat! Razz

Some poor folks used to give their dog the chicken bones, after dinner. Not us. We saved them for tomorrow's dinner.

We had nothing to eat but sand, which was bad enough, but then we ran out of sand.
