So I've decided to post some of the early stuff here.

M was once a muppet, a maid and a movie star.
M munches McNuggets from McDonalds and watches Mickey Mouse.
M gets mail from Michigan sent to the moon.
M invented malls on the moon and maps for malls and
money for Minnesota.
M never gets mad or mean.

OK so this gem was written after sixth grade at College for Kids. Kids took classes in things they wanted for a week during the summer. I took writing. We wrote poems and stories for a week and then the instructor put them together in a "book". One of the kids drew the cover.
One of the assignments from the class was to write a poem using the first letter from our last name. I wrote this the summer after sixth grade so clearly the things that were important to me were malls and McDonalds (Which I was never allowed to have since my mom was a nurse).
Hope you enjoyed this edition of Way Back Wednesday.
