My First Love - 018

Her name was Linda. Actually, that's a lie, but I've changed her name to protect her privacy because, well ... we were in love and we were way ahead of our time. We were also small children. In episode 18, we're going to explore a time in my life - very early on - when I first began to experience the mental and physical pains of a relationship.

But here's a disclaimer: You might consider whether you want your children to listen to this one because while I won't be dirty, the middle story is about a 5 and 6 year old playing You show me yours and I'll show you mine, except we went a tiny bit further.

If that got your attention, give it a listen. I'm Michael Blackston and this is the story of the first love of my Funny Messy Life.

Did you get into any embarrassing situations with the neighbors when you were a kid? How about since you've grown up? Tell us in the comments and let Funny Messy Nation know about it so we can all laugh or cry with you.
