Wow...so hard to pick one...

One time, I wanted to get my My Little Pony gumball machine off of the top of my TV. My TV was on top of my dresser, I pulled out my bottom dresser drawer to stand on it. I was jumping up and down on it to try to reach my gumball machine, and the dresser fell over on top of me, and the TV fell on my head. To top it off, my gumball machine broke. Curses!

Eh, I thought I'd be helpful when my parents were re-bricking the back patio and all the new bricks were in piles in the front. My parents were using a shopping cart to haul the bricks back and forth and had left the full cart of bricks in the gutter to roll up into the driveway.

You can guess what happens next.

I decided to try pushing the shopping cart up the driveway all by myself (eight years old was a big girl to me and I could do it all by myself, so there.). Instead, the shopping cart and its entire contents tipped over onto me, pinning me to the ground.

Fun.

I've never seen my dad run so fast in my whole life.

Thankfully, nothing was broken. I just got to sit in my dad's favorite chair with an ice pack on my leg for the rest of the afteroon. heh.

I jumped off a bathroom sink at school when I was in 1st grade because this evil girl dared me to. We both liked the same boy so of course wanting to be a bad ass I did it.

I got bruised and cut up pretty bad. Neither of us got the boy, but he was kinda my date for Halloween when I was Wonder Woman and he was Luke Skywalker. Ah, young love.

I fibbed to my Mum one day pretending I was sick so I could stay home from school.
I then had to come with her and my little brother to playgroup.
A kid threw a cricket bat out of a cubby house and stupid me was standing below waiting for it to hit me on the head. It did and split my head open. I had stitches and then passed out in the doctor's surgery.

So yeah, faking illness gets you nowhere.

Is anyone else suprised that bandcampchick is still alive? Judging by all of your stories, I think you have used both Whisker's and your nine lives. Careful BCC!

I was confused by and scared of phones when I was little, for whatever reason. Once, my friend across the street phoned to ask if I could come and play, or something. I said I'd ask my mom...and hung up the phone.

When I was 4, my parents bought me a Superman costume for Halloween.

Well, I thought I could actually fly. So I put the cape on, and jumped off the couch. Unfortunately, I didn't fly. I ended crashing into the wall and busting my head open.


The real sad part of this story is that I haven't grown up at all since then. I still do stupid shit all the time.

Fine, I'll share another story.

One time, my dad was working on some landscaping and stuff around the house, so he pulled the front porch away from the house (our front door was "elevated" about 3 feet from the ground...hehe...). So he told us to not go out the front door.

Guess who went running...with scissors...full speed out the front door about 15 minutes later and fell onto the cement sidewalk????

D'oh!

Um. Once I decided I wanted a broken arm. So I kept jumping off the otto bin. I broke nothing, not understanding that humans have a built in propensity to land like a cat from a height of about 4 feet.
I also once decided I wanted to do my 1st handstand. I never planned things in advance and just went ahead and did it. Years of ballet gave me great balance, so I'm 'standing' there on my hands for about 5 minutes too scared to drop down to stand up again.
Again, I decided once that I could do one of those backflips where you keep your feet on the ground and go over backwards til your hands touch the ground behind you. I stayed in that position for about 5 mins too scared I would get hurt if I dropped to the ground.
Once when I was about 5, I went to the newsagent with mum. She left me wandering the stationery to do something. She comes back to find me browsing through People magazine. I was apparently fascinated by the size of the boobs on the cover. Much to the amusement of the shoppers in there.
My sister once told me she could pull my toe off. Intelligent me sticks her foot out, she pulls and pulls, and it popped out of something, leaving me with a swollen big toe for a week.
I once decided while visiting my aunt that I could play with her particularly cantankerous Arab stallion. He spooked, I spooked, and took off to the neighbouring property, right into the pig enclosure. The sow spooked, about 25 kazillion piglets spooked, and I landed arse up in a very large puddle of sticky mud which they had been lounging in.
Same holiday with my aunt, I decided to see what it felt like standing on her extremely large bull ant nest on the driveway.
