Default what did you do as a kid and your parents

don't let you forget. My Papa always tells me the story of me grabing his records and rubbing them on the floor. He says he still has one that is all messed up.

I tried to wash my dad's car with a wire brush instead of a sponge when I was probably around 5 or so - he caught me just in time before I started scraping paint off the car and he's never trusted me with DIY jobs since!

kevin,

Brilliant plan for getting out of chores!

With me, I think the worst thing I ever did was to accidentally set fire to my grandmother's riding lawn mower... (I think I was 12) I'd just gassed it up, and turned the key... and I guess some gas had dripped into the starter, cause it went up like lighting a match... all I could do was stand there and watch it, fueled by a gallon and a half of fresh gasoline, go up in flames.

I am told I drank draino as a toddler, and it was a close call at the hospital.

I messed up my dads recording of the Star Trek 25th anniversary special, so that when people are supossed to be talking music is playing.

Actually, mine is Star Trek-related. When I was about five years old, the babysitter was playing "keep-away" with my Mego Captain Kirk action figure and eventually stuffed it down her blouse. She underestimated the power of Star Trek in me, so I reached down her shirt and fumbled around until I got Captain Kirk back from where no action figure had gone before...

To this day, my Mom won't let that incident go. "Remember when you felt up your babysitter?"

I was five years old! Like I knew (or even cared) what those things were back then...

But I am reasonably sure it wasn't Kirk's first time in a blouse...lol...great story!

I ask my Mom why she's weighting down her soul by carrying around so much old baggage. That tends to hush her up.

And the funny part is she like carrying bags?
