QotD: And of course, the title has to be… Home Alone!

What happened the first time you were left home alone as a child?
Submitted by Warhead.

I can't remember the "first" time.

 

I was an off again, on again latchkey kid.

 

So I was home alone a lot.

"keep the door locked, don't open it for any one, don't open the shades, and call Mommy when you get in.  Do your homework and then you can watch some TV.   Be good."

 

And, oh, I was.  The worst thing my mom could have told me when I was young was that I disappointed her. (Kinda Sad, huh?)

So I came home, locked everything up, sat at the kitchen table and did my homework.  Piled it nicely for mom to check over and then watched the Monkees on Nick (when we had cable) or whatever cartoons were on, til Mom got home and made dinner.

I still don't readily open the shades when I am home alone.  Just don't think about it I guess.
