Who/What Is/Are the 'Fubs Part 2

The Second period of growth is what I like to call the Beastial Period.  This is when 'Fub and I shot up like weeds and towered over all, boy and girls alike.  I remember a lady at church once remarking that our parents must feed us on red meat only.  (I don't see how that makes sense b/c a meat only diet would be very unbalanced and would likely not contribute to healthy growth) but I digress...

This is pretty much how it was:


Our giant beast-like size did come in handy sometimes.  Like when we got a new playground installed at our school with a chicken-fighting bar. Just one swipe of a meaty paw and the opposition went flying.  Nobody messed with us...


But there were also definite cons (other than being a beast, I mean), such as people thinking we were much older than we were.  There was the time at the pool when a creepy 19 year old male tried to pick us up.


This time period wasn't ALL about our giant size though.  We did do other things other than pushing people off of bars and hide from un-blinking chapped-lip older men.  Probably one of our favourite things was playing with/torturing our dog, Shadow (before you judge, we did not name her that).  We especially liked forcing her to do aerobic movements.

she did not particularly appreciate this:

To review:
-We were huge
-We beat people up
-We lost a little bit of innocence regarding the opposite sex
-We spent hours torturing our dog

That pretty much sums it up.  By about age 14 most people had caught up in size and our beastial period was officially at an end. Yay!  Stay tuned for part 3...

  5. Lol!! Love the bum chinned man,(ew) and how you were true to your silver zip up bathing suits (that I'd forgotten about until I saw your picture)And meaty paws?? That IS an exaggeration. You didn't have huge chubby hands!! You had dainty long piano fingers. I had a similar phase where I towered over everyone too.
