I guess you can say I wasn't your average, everyday, child. I was crazy and hectic and just all around stupid. I remember being 4 maybe 5 years old and wanting to adopt a skunk instead of a cat. Or how about the sledding from our home roof instead of a mountain of snow on the ground. I can't even count the amount of times I should have broken a bone but didn't.
`I remember the time I let a squirrel into the house to run around and play with me but it got lose from the shoe box I had it in and fell into the pot of boiling water on the stove that had almost fully cooked macaroni noodles in it.. My mother was not happy but we laughed it off then and still do to this day.
I also remember the doll look alike I convinced my mother to buy for me just so I could scare my younger sister. Gosh she was peeved.
I remember it like it was yesterday.. I called for my little sister then threw the dismembered doll look alike, that I had put an entire bottle of ketchup on, out my bedroom window and hid on the roof. She came in looked out the window and immediately started crying. Mom was livid for that one. They both had assumed I'd died. I stayed p on the roof for 3 hours before they figured it out and I came inside. My little sister to this day still gets mad at me when I bring it up. To be fair though I was 9 and she was 5. I am a bit ashamed about it but hey, she shouldn't have cut my hair in my sleep the night before.
Let's just say that I was a bit of a troublemaker back then. I still do crazy stupid stuff but not like then. The adventurer in me though, that will never go away. I am always up to trying new things and a crazy, yet true, story is always fun to tell.
