Normal Stupid Kid Things

What stupid/silly things did you do/think as a child?

*When I was a kid, I wanted to grow up to be Alex Trebek (the Jeopardy guy). Not to be LIKE him, but to BE HIM. I thought he was the smartest person in the world. He knew all the Jeopardy answers!

*My dad told me chocolate milk came from the chocolate cow. Of course! I was 4. Natch, I always looked for the chocolate cow when we drove by the farms. For a while, I thought Bulls were chocolate cows.

*I was doing a project and asked my dad where they spoke Yiddish. He told me, "Yiddland, of course."
So, for years, I assumed Yiddland was one of those Soviet Satellite countires. Duh!

I think I was very impressionable.

I wanted to marry my brother cos he was always so nice to me.

I ran around in our garden playing Indiana Jones discovering many great things like rotten leafs or old cans. These were times...

~There was a factory in a nearby town that always pumped large, white clouds of smoke out of a tall, skinny smokestack. My sister and I thought it was a "cloud maker"...we would get all excited when we would be driving through the town and could watch the clouds being made.

~There was this bunny who lived next to a building downtown on the waterfront that my parents would always drive us by because we loved to see the cute bunny. One day...we drove by...and the bunny wasn't moving. We asked why it wasn't moving, and our parents told us the bunny was sleeping. The bunny "slept" there for a really, reallly long time before disappearing. Today, we always know of that spot as "Where The Bunny Sleeps".

I always played Indiana Jones, too, but I was the chick from the first one, I forgot her name. I always played the love interest, lol.

I was also one of the idiots who thought there were monsters under my bed. One night I even had a dream they came though my window and I left the house so that they'd get my parents and I could leave unharmed. I was a nice daughter, lol.

I liked playing house/ school with my little brother and sister

I also loved tidying but my mum told me recently I only put my toys away and I only vaccummed with a toy vaccum lol!!

When I was 4 she said I made jam and bread with glasses of milk for her and my Dad lol

I had a nurses outfit and wore it when I went to see my Granny in hospital & they gave me clips for my hat & a wee light thing lol

My dad was making up some story about how wild beans run through the yard late at night and you can set a trap and bait it with Kool-Aid and catch them.
He didn't know I was listening...
Me: (with real big 3-year old eyes) Reeeeeally Daddy???

We ended up diggin a little hole and putting kool-aid in a bottle cap at the bottom, and in the middle of the night Dad snuck out there and dumped a bag of beans in it
Mom cooked the wild beans for dinner the next night.

These 2 older girls used to babysit me when I was about 5, and they always talked about guys they liked.. and they told me to marry someone you have to love them, so I said I wanted to marry my dad

I used to clean the sink for fun to make it shiny

I used to love to sort our coupon box, peel corn on the cob, and peel hard boiled eggs.

We used to play with our doctor's kids who were Indians. I thought they were my cousins who just happened to be very dark-skinned. I'm Chinese.

I thought God lived in the sun and a witch lived in the moon. And if we didn't sleep by midnight, the witch would fly to us and frighten us.

My sisters and I climbed our rooftop in search of nails, so we could throw them over the fence onto our neighbour's garden.

We also used to catapult snails from our garden to the street outside and watch the cars go over it.

We were very cruel

I used to be in love with band aids.

Even when I wasn't hurt, I would put 'em on anyway



I've also always been a tomboy so I used to beat up my brother's friends. I'm a good biter.

one thing my mom told me this summer when I was REALLY sick with this stomach bug...and she was sitting with me while I was falling asleep. She was like.... O_O bc I was rubbing my feet together. She said I used to do that when I was a baby falling asleep and she didn't know I still did it. I never even really noticed, but I've always done it.....

BONOCHICK---- sorting the coupon box RULED.... LOL I used to LOVE that. Recipe box too

I was such a reject

I used to pretend I was Wonder Woman....I had the underoos and everything.

I used to make up songs and sing them to myself when I had trouble sleeping at night.

I wanted to marry Michael Jackson (this was back when he was human )

when I got pissed off or frustrated I was bite the side of my right index finger...

OMC!!!

Our recipe book was next to our coupon box. One time, there were a bunch of loose pages hanging out of it, so I decided to clean it up for my mom. It was then that I found out where the "Tooth Fairy" had been putting our teeth...in a Zip-loc bag in our recipe book.

So...upon this kid finding a bag of teeth in a recipe book, I started screaming my damn head off...that was traumatic!!! I started thinking that either my parents robbed the Tooth Fairy and were hiding the teeth...or my parents put teeth in our food!!
