January 22 | Masking Tape
At least one point growing up, I got it into my head to properly divide the room I shared with Melissa into Her Side and My Side. Like most children who share rooms with siblings, I was tired of her getting into my stuff and needed a sure-fire way for her to leave me alone.

I had tried simply declaring my new rules one night before bedtime, but I soon found out that Melissa needed something more than words to prompt her into my obedience.

Out came the masking tape.

I devised a highly-scientific (or so I thought) method to mark the boundaries of My Side, Her Side, as well as The Walkway. The Walkway was neutral ground and primarily used to get from the door to My Side. I felt this method was fool proof, and it made me proud.

While it doesnít shock me now, I was furious when she didn't respect the tape lines and snottily jumped in and out of My Side to torture me.

The tape didn't stay on the floor long - I think Mom made me remove it.
