This is me, age 2, hanging from a hook in my grandparents’ home. I have no memory of the event. Over the next 35 years, I watched each of my cousins, then my own children and my cousins’ children, be dangled from that hook (the only purpose for which was apparently to photograph crying children as they hung). Between the photo and watching it happen to others, this is a powerful #fakememory for me.
