Apparently when I was about 8, my parents took me to a beach. It happened to be a topless beach. I wandered back from the water, eyes wide as saucers and asked my mother: "Do you know that boobs float"?

Apparently, I was an extremely unhappy baby.

the curly hair thing. I don't remember, but who'd actually want curly hair!?

I used to eat sand. And chicken bones.

I used to eat Tomato sauce and sugar sandwiches - until my parents caught me eating one.

Apparently, one year, I got a kick out of going up behind folk, sat in deck-chairs on the beach, and kicking them up the ass. (Well I guess it wasn't me that got a kick out of it.)

My guess is that, that reign of terror didn't last too long. Not that I remember.

Not my parents, but a guy I went to school with was convinced all the clouds ever came out of the chimney of the local cement factory.

i had an invisible friend called Babe Rainbow who I used to blame for everything I did wrong. And I ate suet out of the packet when my parents were asleep. I also ate a toadstool once (perhaps) and had to go to hospital to have sick tablets. and I saved my brother from drowning twice. I had a tortoise and my favourite dress had ducks on it.

I used to be an absolutely fearless and brainless thing. I'd jump off of roofs, try to make stupid jumps on my bike, climb huge trees then see if I could jump out of them, and other brain dead stunts. I was in the hospital so often that once the doctor cornered my mother and tried to get her to confess that my father was beating me.

She said the truth; "no the stupid kid just keeps doing insane stunts". :lol:

and jumped out to play with it

I have wavy brown hair which turns red in the sun. I hated it as a kid but it isn't so bad. Of course I still keep my hair short to avoid the waviness as I'm a slave for girls' opinions and they've told me they like it better that way.

I had two near-death experiences. One when I managed to hang myself from a car seatbelt, and another when I chewed through the power cable to my mother's sewing machine and got thrown across the floor by 240 volts taken orally.

I remember mixing up something my mother told me so that I formed a belief that my grandmothers pug dogs could shoot poison out of their eyes that would kill you. I never went closer to those dogs than a few yards :nervous:

my Mum told me there was an Australian water snake that had got into the country and lived in toilet U-bends, and it would bite your arse if you sat on the loo. I still, STILL, have to look in the loo before I sit down.

I think wavy hair can be rather dashing, but of course you'd have to probably wear a WW2 pilots uniform and rather a lot of brylcreem to complete the effect. :)

Apparently I was quite the escape artist as a baby. I was always climbing out of cribs and playpens, no matter how they were enclosed. Mom finally gave up and gave me a bed earlier than most kids, because she was afraid I'd take a header on one of my nightly journeys.

When I two, I was put into an oxygen tent over Christmas due to a severe allergy attack. At least twice I got out, turned off the oxygen, and wandered the hospital in the very early morning.

I was fed a tablespoon of flea shampoo instead of cough medicine one night. They caught on when I started blowing bubbles. Never keep dog shampoo in your medicine cabinet.

They said it could cause brian damage, but where they ever rong!

We lived way out in the sticks and had no neighbors close by so I somehow got the idea that it was OK to pee anyplace if you were outdoors. While we were in town, I dropped my pants on the curb at the gas station and let loose into Main street.

I was 27.:cute:

My mother told me that on my first day of kindergarten at age 3, I came home whining:
"mummy, a kid punched me :("
"and what did you do"
"I fell"
"and how did you react then?"
"I raised and walked away"

nonviolence in my DNA

Apparently I quite severely burned both my forearms on a very hot barbeque when I was 1. I don't know whether to believe this or not as there are no scars at all..

How did I interpret this as 'stupid stuff I did as a kid'

My dad told me that Gray and Red Squirrels didn't get along, and that the red squirrels would sneak up on the grays when they were sleeping and bite their nads. I totally bought it.

I'm not sure about nad biting, but reds and grays definately do NOT get along, by what I've heard.

I do remember when I was in year 2 (aka 7-8 years old), I called out to a girl in the middle of a hall full of kids "I love you Cinnamon". Cinnamon Thomas being her name and all.
