In a reversal of Big, the Tom Hanks classic from the 80s, your adult self is suddenly locked in the body of a 12-year-old kid. How do you survive your first day back in school?
Oh boy to be 12 years old again! Remember being 12? I liked the age of 12 because the following happened….
- I grew 3 inches taller from the age of 10-11 but unfortunately 162 cms is where everything stopped! But that height difference at 12 was pretty good!
- Having always been a chubby boy I lost a lot of weight that year because I started a love affair with tennis. But I didn’t have a court nearby to go play at. So I played wall tennis – using the brick wall of our front yard and the cemented front yard which width wise was about 3/4 of a tennis court (minus the doubles’ lanes) but the length was good enough. So I played a lot of wall tennis and you all know that the harder you hit the ball against a wall, the quicker it was gonna come back.
- Really got into playing some badminton & football with my cousins and at school
- Had a girl have a crush on me for the first time in my life. She became a really good friend for the next 10 years or so until we lost touch. 3 years ago we became friends again.
So here;s what I would do if I suddenly woke being a 38 year old in a 12 year old body back in my parents house. I would so acknowledge that cute & pretty girl’s crush on me and make it happen. I would rule at all the games and become numero uno in school (I was a pretty popular kid ages 12-16 but I would rule supreme). I would appreciate my teachers even more (I was a teacher’s pet to a couple of them). I might even do better and study hard and stick with my good friends even more.
