"Oh innocent days of youth and ecstasy, why did you abandon me when I was at my height of fun and fearless freedom? You took away all mystery and magic in my life along with the certainty of everyday happiness and replaced my hours with learning numbers and letters in a stuffy classroom just because I'd reached the age of five.
And then, as if to add insult to injury, my parents strangled my friends Jeremiah, Puddleduck and Proud Percy, beheaded them, stripped them, stuffed them and cooked them for Christmas dinner, My friends were then served up with the smily words,'Eat up like a good girl!'
Then you wished me a Merry Christmas and told me that you loved me dearly. Adults.....ahhh!" William Forde: December 2nd, 2014.
