Have you ever been wrongly accused for something? Ever since I was a little kid,
been fascinated with the subject. Case and point: one Christmas eve my
parents accused me of opening a gift before Christmas morning arrived.
My dad was big stickler on that. No opening of gifts until after church
on Christmas day. I recall both my parents flanking me and asking me in
that accusatory tone, "Did you or did you not open that gift?" A boy of
no more than 7 I stared at the black doctor's kit and I tried to recall:
had I in fact torn away the paper and opened it? I most certainly did
not I decided. And I proceeded to plead my case to my parents who
weren't having any of it. They were convinced I'd done it and not my
older sisters who could do no wrong. I was spanked and sent to my room.
