Yes, I am old, out of date, a step behind and often two or three pages behind! I know it and try to catch up a little each day. When Doc mentioned trolls what I thought of is the troll collection I had as a child. It was quite extensive. The way I earned my trolls were designed by my Mom and I hadn’t really thought of the collection for years until today when I read a comment Doc made. (Doc has a way of getting into my head.)
Anyway, any time my two evil brothers were teasing me and tormenting me and I ignored them and moved on without complaining to my Mom I would earn a troll and it would show up in unexpected places. Now if you have read what I write you know that I am NOT good at ignoring bad behavior, including my own. So I had to work hard for those trolls. (I feel the need for a musical interlude ~ hang on)
ow here’s the really cool part of the experience. When I got married I sold the troll collection and we used the money to start a bully-free project in three elementary schools. (Who knew my tormenting brothers were really changing the world?) Some times you have to look back at life to understand how important things were.
