I remember being pretty small. I remember going to Grandma Hemsley's place in the mountains near Oroville. I remember sitting and playing in the shade. I was sitting in a broad field of plants, on a gentle slope. I remember playing there for a couple of hours. I remember you all coming out and yelling to me to get out of that field, to come to you. I didn't know what the big deal was about. I remember you all rushing me into the house to wash me off in cold water. I remember learning it was poison oak only after all that. And even so, I didn't know what that meant. It stood out to me only because I knew poison was BAD. I remember there was no reaction to it at all, which surprised you.

This is an amusing memory
