New Mickey Mouse tracksuit, little man boxers with lollipop patterns, LED sneakers. A little cotton bag with my initials embroidered on it, which I took a wet wipe from each time I peed, until my willy started to burn. I later found out they were hand wipes. The teacher checked our hair to see if we had lice, and if we had our nails cut. A devilish kid stole my fire truck, another one threw a chicken wing at me. Scratched, with my toys broken and a missing sock, that's how my first day of kindergarten ended.
