Your 15 year old self still hates you

When I was 15 …
I was digging up septic tanks,
And working with cows;
That was also the summer
We fed our hogs
Barrels of The worst smelling Sauerkraut
In the world (I have never eaten it again since that summer)
So,incidentally,
sometimes
I may say
Without thinking
“Oh good god,that smells like cow afterbirth”
And
People think I’m kidding
Because to look at me
I’ve never worked a day outside
Or even seen the inside of a barn
But trust me
You NEVER forget the smell
Of cow afterbirth
Or sauerkraut
You forget the septic tank
Along with many other future things
But your younger self
Still hates you
Everytime you remember it
