These are the things I know…
I know my name is Thomasina ‘Hitch’ Waycott
I know I’m not like everyone else.
I know I was born a little bit different, like someone held the instructions upside down or lost a part when they opened the box.
I also know that words are powerful things and they have weight.
I know certain words have sat in my stomach for as long as I can remember and weigh so much that when I’m in a crowd or I meet someone new they pull my shoulders down and make my head hang forward so I can only look at the floor.
Although Thomasina (aka Hitch) Waycott loves her parents, her younger brother, her chickens, her dog, and enjoys working on the family farm, she feels life is passing her by.
