1971-06-10 | Memory | Grass Torture

I was visiting a friend that lived south of us on Lake Sammamish, and the kids a couple houses down asked if I wanted to see their club house. That sounded like fun, but when they got me inside they tied up my hands behind me and shone a bright light in my eyes, pretending to interrogate me. They asked me some questions like who I was, and what I was doing on the road, stuff like that. They took a bunch of grass and wadded into a ball and put it in my mouth. They let me go and told me if I told anybody they would come after me. They told me that I couldn't look back, and I couldn't spit out the grass.

I walked further down the road, and went into a field where I didn't think they could see me, and spit out the grass. I imagined that everything they had done to me was inside the grass, and when I spit it out, all of it went with the grass. I told my dad about it, and he talked to the kid's parents. He said afterwards that I wouldn't have to worry about those kids again.

I thought of the grass ball, later, when I sold Ruby in 2007. Ruby held all of the pain of the previous years, and I felt like I could just spit it all out by selling Ruby. I had poured so much energy into Ruby as a way to deal with what was going on at the time. I still think I was right, but I miss Ruby sometimes.
