    I don't know if this is the correct forum for this topic or not . So mods can feel free to move it somewhere else if they so choose .

    I did some dumb things as a child . I hope I'm not the only one or I will really feel bad . You don't want me to feel bad , do you ? Contribute your experiences here .

    I'll start with just two things I did before the age of ten .

    1. I was watching the old Daniel Boone show and told my mom that I was getting a sore throat . She said to " use salt water " . So I got a glass of water and added liberal doses of salt to it . Then I proceeded to drink it ! " Hey mom . I think the salt water made my tonsils swell . " I should have known better , but didn't . I don't do that with Listerine these days .

    2. I was enjoying sledding down a hill with my trusty dog Rusty .It was getting rather cold so I wanted to put some gloves on . So I just put the sled upright against my face - my lips in particular . There ! I finally managed to put those warm gloves on . But hey ! What's this ? The metal of the sled is sticking to my lips ! Is this a comedy ? Oh no . As I try to remove the sled from my lips they don't want to part . Bloodiness results . Mom and dad never told me not to do that . I guess it's like adults who get injured while using their lawn mowers on their shrubbery . " But nobody told me not to do that ! "

    Sometimes the school of hard knocks is rough .

    When I was four or five, I tried to flush one of my old dogs down the toilet, and I ATE mudpies with a girl and remember that there were rocks in the mud. It's funny what memories stick around...

    No, no, no!!! You got it all wrong, Rip!! The school of hard knocks is the easy part!

    On the other hand----elementary school wasn't my "Piece of cake"

    5th grade was the three longest years of my life!!

    My brother and I spent a lot of time with our favorite uncle on his dairy farm

    We'd pull our shoes off---even in the winter(LA Winter is another piece of cake)---and warm our feet up in the cow lot---know what I mean????---see there---that wasn't really the dumbest thing I've done!

    Just one question for Dustin----did you marry that girl??? And how does she "fair off" in the kitchen today??? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    At least you did dumb things as a child instead of waiting for college to do them! [​IMG]

    When I was about two, my Grandma told me that cats did not like to swim. So, I tried to teach the family cat to swim ...

    We didn't have that poor cat much longer, as Grandma loved animals WAY too much to let them be around me.

    Dustin, did the girl tell you it was chocolate? I did that to a boy when I was little...mixed mud and water and told him it was chocolate milk. I even put rocks in it. He tried to drink it. It was even in LA. But, LA as in Los Angeles. :D

    I jumped off the upper floor deck of a house because I wanted to fly.

    I broke (or it was real close) the nose of our assistant pastor's daughter, and we also went to that school. The assistant pastor was often the one to give out the spankings when we reached our limits on demerits, so that wasn't good to injure his kid and then have him be the one with the paddle. OWCH! (It wasn't on purpose either...we were boxing and I swung around and my elbow got her. )

    Well, if I were a Mod, I would move it to Other Discussions. This is a debate forum. ;)

    Why do you say that Marcia ? I don't think ... Nah , can't make this into a debate if I tried . Yes , Other Discussions would have been the better choice if only I was more observant .

    Maybe we can turn it into a debate on whether or not we were predestined to do dumb things!

    I say we weren't. So there, we got a real debate now.

    I ran out infront of this car coming down the alley and then saying that the devil pushed me. Oh... I used to get, like, 2 spakens a day for being mean to my friend that we were babysitting. I would pick on her so bad that I would make her cry. My mom would here me, spank me, and then let me back into my room. Then I would blame Chrissy (my friend) for me getting spanked and then I would end up getting spanked again. Oops

    When I was about 8 or 9, I found a 1/2 gallon of bright yellow paint in the woods. My cousin and I painted the outside windowsills of our brick house with it. In the front part of the house. I thought my mom was gonna kill me.

    PastorSBC, were you saving it all up? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'm pretty sure I mentioned this last time this topic came up, but oh well [​IMG]

    I used logic once. The discussion with myself went a bit like this: "I love Worcestershire sauce. I love ice-cream. Therefore...."


    hmmmmm.....I wonder if I should mention I was around 15 at the time..... :eek: :D
