I’m not sure if I’ll resurrect Badge of the Day or not; it’s not so much getting the time to do it as wondering if a literally random badge isn’t too weird in some cases, even though I guess it can lead into unexpected areas. I’m a big fan of “randomness” and guess I have a fatalistic view of things (in other words, nothing’s “random”), but trying to find meaning on even a daily basis in some obscure element of my childhood is pushing it a bit. I think I might instead choose something I find interesting from all this “dusty old memorabilia” (as Donald Fagen has it on his latest wonderful album, Sunken Condos) as I think it’ll be more interesting. Marginally 😉
So, here’s the latest from my recent unearthings of Stuff From My Past™ – an early work of Thoughtcat fiction from a school exercise book, dated “11th of November” 1977 (I would’ve been six and a half).
Here’s the text:

Wish I was still that good.
