have you ever had a relative tell you a story about your childhood, and have no recollection of the event whatsoever?
bc i was looking through some old high school grad books with my sister, and when she saw one of her old classmate’s photos, she was like “haha, that guy is still terrified of you. did u see him at my grad party?” and i was like “no, i don’t think so,” and she said that he was scared shitless the entire time, and i was like “why the hell would he be scared shitless?”
and then she told me that, apparently, when i was in the 3rd grade, and she was just going into the 1st, i’d caught him picking on her on the bus, and that i’d scared him so bad, threatening, apparently, to “rip his thighs off and eat them” if he bullied her anymore.
and i have zero recollection of that…

Nancy Wake, who has died in London just before her 99th birthday, was a New Zealander brought up in Australia. She became a nurse, a journalist who interviewed Adolf Hitler, a wealthy French socialite, a British agent and a French resistance leader. She led 7,000 guerrilla fighters in battles against the Nazis in the northern Auvergne, just before the D-Day landings in 1944. On one occasion, she strangled an SS sentry with her bare hands. On another, she cycled 500 miles to replace lost codes. In June 1944, she led her fighters in an attack on the Gestapo headquarters at Montlucon in central France.
Ms Wake was furious the TV series [later made about her life] suggested she had had a love affair with one of her fellow fighters. She was too busy killing Nazis for amorous entanglements, she said.
Nancy recalled later in life that her parachute had snagged in a tree. The French resistance fighter who freed her said he wished all trees bore “such beautiful fruit.” Nancy retorted: “Don’t give me that French shit.”
