"Once bitten twice shy"

We all have those  moments in our life that we do not want to repeat   There are several but what I am going to narrate is something I will never forget   In my case it is literally the case of ‘Once bitten twice shy’

There was this old man living alone in our neighbourhood – someone who never mixed around and was kind of a loner.  He had a guava tree and I could see yellow fruits fully ripe hanging on there.  As a kid and always hungry I got tempted to get inside that compound and help myself.  

Little did I know he had a dog that was let loose and rest is history   He got my behind.  Leave alone going there and I did not even look at those fruits again ever!!!
