Writer's Block: Eye for an eye?
what now
ath_winter_lord
If you bumped into someone who regularly picked on you as a child, what would you say to them?

Nothing.

I probably wouldn't recognize them anyway, not remembering names or even faces. Or even unnamed, faceless individuals in most cases. [*]

Why should I say anything to anyone I would know picked on me 30 (+/-5) years ago? What are they supposed to mean to me?

I wonder: If these questions are from and for teens, why phrase it 'on you as child' implying past, when it's adressing children?

[*] Funny how they always remember on TV. I could maybe name a handful of people from across _all_ years at school. Plus perhaps a handful more first names. If straining.

Looking at sites that list schools and people signing up looking for others, I recognized one person, the first name and knowing it was a funny double last name, with some info that matched what I recall. Even having spent some time with her at around age 8 or so, I don't try to reestablish contact.

And what's the subject got to do with the question? (Yes I can guess. The question remains.)
