My first memory of syn is in kindergarten. I was 5. We were sitting on the floor and Mrs. Cummings was teaching us how to spell the word "out". We recited a little phrase to help us remember: "O-U-T spells out, and out you must go!" I remember seeing O-U-T as gold-grey-green.
My next memory happened when I was probably 7 or so. I was colouring with my friend Hilary with crayons. One crayon sticks out in my memory: it was a pale pinkish-orange (kind of like my N, but pinker) and it was called "Annabelle." I remember loving that crayon since the colour fit the name.
For as long as I can remember, I drew cats yellow-orange and dogs brown because cat was yellow-orange and dog was brown.
I remember sitting in the backseat on a family trip and listening to "Does Your Mother Know" by Abba, and I saw a white background with lots of coloured shapes on it. This is one of the only music-syn memories from my childhood.
