We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.




I’m playing in the sandbox my father made for me. I pick up one of my favorite toys and toss it aside because I see something much more interesting hidden beneath. Lines in the sand form swirls of diamonds and jewels. It doesn’t seem real, it blends so perfectly with the sand. I need to know more about this thing. I reach to touch it.
In a flash, It has me by the arm. Pain shoots through me. I scream, but it won’t let go. I flail my arm, but it won’t let go. Blood oozes where its mouth sunk into my arm, just above the wrist. I can see it has a mouth now, and eyes, and nostrils.
Suddenly, Mr. Mattoon is there with a shovel in his hands. He pulls the thing off of me, and throws it into the grass. He swings and hacks and chops the thing with his shovel. Its blood splatters across the sand to mix with my own.

My earliest memory is spewing my guts up. We're on this bus to somewhere in the country and it seems to me it is going around in one endless circle around this large hill and it starts to make be sick and sicker and then I know I'm gonna have my stomach explode. Luckily I tell mum she tells the driver the bus stops and I get out and heave and ho until it is all gone and I feel so much better. There is a little road bridge and I remember with my 4yr older brother I run to the left and spit out the last of the guck and phlegm and then we both race to the right and watch that float downstream. What jolly fun.

Last year I was cleaning up some brush in my back yard that I previoussly pulled up to let dry. When I picked up the dry brush it felt like a baseball bat hit me in the thigh.Shin.

I think a king snake was nesting there with snakelets. That snake bite went into my thigh  shin bone. I went to to the doctor because my thigh  shin swelled up and turned an odd color.  I still have scars from the puncture woud.

After putting the brush into the compost bin. I thought about it and didn't want the snake to die in the bin.  I looked there and didn't see it. 

That crafty vermon hunter hit me like a baseball bat and managed to elude me to live.

Having said that,  I'm not anti-snake. Had I found it in the compost bin I would have released it. I'm glad  it did what snakes do - nest - have snakeletts, and live a life.

My earliest memory is of waking up from a nap in my carriage. (those big old black baby carriages of LONG ago...).  My grandmother would put the carriage out on the back patio for my afternoon nap.  Fresh air was healthy.  I remember waking listening to the propeller planes fly overhead (we lived not too far from what is now Kennedy Airport).  It felt late and dark, since the patio was now covered in late afternoon shadow and I began crying for my 'bubbe' (Yiddish for grandmother).  Have no idea how old I was in this memory, but it is my oldest.

I have a few early memories but I do not know which one is the earliest; the problem with early memories is that parents and siblings recount the same fact over and over with you and their accounts get sort of imprinted as memories. One of my earliest memories is from when I was 3 years old and my sister (who is 13 years older than me) took me to church (she had a brief period in which she was very religious when she was a teenager) and when everyone was in silent prayer, I escaped from her grip (I've always being a fidgety person), and ran down the aisle towards the altar at top speed while screaming with joy at interrupting the silence. My sister was so mortified, and being a teenager, very self-conscious, so instead of chasing me she waited until I came back running down the aisle and then grabbed me and whacked me (not hard). She was furious, She glared at me the whole way home. I was upset that she was so upset, I worshiped my big sister. I guess I was an irreverent little atheist from the start, ha!

Bad times seem easier to remember than good ones. Someone was talking about an evolutionary reason for this, like how its all good and well to remember sitting around the fire telling stories, but how it is much more important to remember to run when the lion shows up.

Interesting that it is your first memory, pain; a learning experience. One of mine was around the same age as your experience. I was in CA covered with red ants because I decided to sit on the anthill. Remember my sister saving my dumb ass. =)

It was a 6 foot gopher snake, and I was 3. It wasn't poisonous so I didn't need treatment. I wanted to write this, because it is actually my first memory. I've decided to start writing about my experiences, and I thought I would start at the beginning.

Comment by Sydni Moser on August 25, 2011 at 5:12pm

Quite the first memory!  What made you think to want to write about this, not that it isn't interesting and kinda scary.  So what had you by the arm, gotta know.

Comment by Adriana on August 25, 2011 at 12:08pm

Wow. What kind of snake was it? Did you need treatment?
