I need some attention! (Real life experience of a 7 year old)

OK Guys, I wrote this a long time ago and just re read it. It made me laugh so had, I really wanted to share it. It's a real life childhood experience. 

Since I remembered this incident, I've practically be giggling.
When I was a kid of about 7, I felt I was not special. This was because every other person in the house always seemed to have one reason or anther to be treated specially. I was jealous of my immediate elder sister because she was ill once and she was given so much attention, I was green with envy. She travelled, got a lot of gifts and had so many other treats. 

My younger brother too had a home accident while we were playing. He was also treated 'special' he was taken to the nearest city, to one of the best hospitals in the state for treatment. He returned with toys. There was one particular toy I was very jealous of; it was a toy train. I couldn't imagine how lucky he was, I so wanted a toy train of my own, to make matters worse, he wouldn't even play toy train with me, he'll rather hang out with boys his age and play with them.

So, I started wishing, hoping and praying that I either fall ill or simply have an accident! It was that bad, I needed some attention too. 

One day, what seemed to be like a granted prayer happened, I actually had an accident! A rusted nail pierced my foot. I was too excited to cry, even while the blood flowed out. Oh my gosh! I was going on a trip too, I'll get lots of gifts, I was already dreaming of toy trains, dolls and so many toys I definitely wasn't going to share with my younger brother. 

My dad was sent for and while I was expecting the treats, he started by scolding me for playing in the wrong places. To make matters worse, one of our neighbours confirmed that I was found of playing and running around where I had no business . My dad was mad at me and I was taken to a local chemist for first aid and later taken to the local hospital for Anti Tetanus Injections and proper treatment. I was waiting to hear the magic word that I was being referred to the city where I will spend a few days and every thing I ever wished for will be granted. Unfortunately for me, that was never the case. All I had were very painful doses of injections and bitter pills to swallow in the local hospital!

I learnt my lesson then and even now as I write this and remember that day, I can't help but laugh. What some kids will do for attention. 

Please do leave your most memorable childhood event story in the comment box. Don't spoil the fun oh.

Miley, is that your butt I can see + why are you disappearing?

I beg, Dear Yimiton Readers, Isn’t this girl indeed too immature be getting married? I mean, what pride to be goes around shopping with a belt for a pair of knickers. 

Dear Miley, I think this is too much flesh revealed to the world.  Shouldn’t you be an innocent blushing bride to be? 

Have you also noticed how thin she has become? Where is she disappearing to? Could it be in preparation for her wedding? 

Meanwhile, she twitted yesterday that she loves being a fiancée. 
I still like her a lot though, never can forget the sweet little Hannah Montana.

Johnny Depp to pay Vanessa Paradise £100million + He's already being linked with Amber Heard! even bought her a horse.

You know Johnny Depp and Paradise were never married during their 14 year relationship but Vanessa Paradise is set to receive one of the biggest pay-off between a non-married couple. Johnny Depp should be paying her £100million. They say it's  in a bid to keep the split as amicable as possible for the sake of their children.

Johnny Depp is worth at least £200million and has lots of property .

We just heard this and are still surprised oh, meanwhile, gist already has it that tthings are beginning to heat up between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. I heard that they are so close that she's always visiting the New Mexico set of the Lone Ranger where Johnny Depp is currently filming. Globe magazine even said Johnny Depp has bought the girl a hourse so they then ride together!

Meanwhile, did I remember to mention that this 26 year old Amber Heard is Bi-sexual! Na wah, maybe she'll invite her female partner to bed with Johnny Depp. Lol.

But seriously, can't these people even let the ink on their separation papers dry off before they start seeing other people. Hollywood shaaaa
