When you were a little kid...

This is a bit of random, pick-me-up kinda thread. Post stupid/funny things you thought/did/said as a child.

When I was really little, I used to feed my sister poo. (It's disgusting I know).

When I was little I used to walk around in my dad's huge shoes with no clothes on except giant socks. I did this everyday, I don't know why.

I fed my sister plant food.

I thought that boys were most definitely another species, and there was no way that us girls, so perfect, could be related in any way to boys.

Not very funny I know.. I'm thinking though.

My dad told me that mountain goats had one pair of legs longer than the other, and they always walked up the mountain until they got to the top, and then they died of starvation

I believed it for ages

I also used to believe that "irritating" was spelled "earitating" and therefore was to do with sounds. My parents used to say stop that and i'd say, why? and they say because it's irritating, and i'd respond but it's not making any noise

When I was a kid I used to tell people I was going to be president of the United States. Didn't have a clue I had to be a national. And I still think I'm the best president they never had.

When I was a kid I didn't understand why the government didn't build a giant fan over the Vancouver Lower Mainland to get rid of the clouds and rain.

I ate worms, my sister ate beetles.
I used to surreptitiously pick things up and put them in different locations. You, know, stuff like glasses, keys, coffee cups, etc. My sister used to rat me out.

I used to be UTTERLY confused as to why someone would call a dish which collects cigarette butts something so bizarre as an 'asstree'. Why I always heard it that way is beyond me, but I was probably almost 7 before I realized it was ashtray.

When the song 'Puff the Magic Dragon' would play, I was always confused by what kind of home you would have you you would need 'ceiling wax'. "little jackie paper loved that rascal puff
and brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff"

When I was probably about ten years old, I mortified my father by offering to shoot my favorite calf, which I had been handfeeding and singing to for weeks on end. Its hooves had been frostbitten, and it would hobble across the corals to see me when I got home from school, I'd curl up in a bale, and it would lie it's head in my lap and we'd snuggle and I'd sing. When it finally became clear its hooves were beyond saving, I overheard dad near to tears, telling mom it was time to kill the calf. He always had a hard time killing any of the livestock, but having watched this calf snuggle with me made it especially hard. So, not realizing I had overheard him, when it came time for dad to head to corals, gun in hand, he was horrified when I offered to do it for him. I can't even imagine how it must have seemed to him, and was too upset at his horrified expression to really explain myself.

Kidding, He knows you and probably had figured the reasoning out since your offer.

If you swallow air (kind of like what you do when you want to burp) it makes you feel full because your stomach is full of air. I thought that could cure world hunger.

lol. Karrie, you're a sadist. You should tell him. If he didn't figure it out, I would have thought your mum would have and told him.

Just occurred to me that I could have used someone like you around to combat my little sister's tendency to be a blabbermouth.

I used to think of ceiling wax too. I was puzzled by that for a long time.

One time I thought I'd be helpful and wash the kitchen floor while parents were out. I had a better method for doing it though. Instead of using a mop and bucket and scrubbrush, I used garden hose and vacuum cleaner: soak floor and then suck up the stuff with vacuum. (There were no such things as wet/dry vacuums back then).

When I was 8, I was very pouty and grumpy cause my best friend across the lane went out for the
day, and her mom wouldn't let me go with them.
While they were gone I went into their yard and pulled all of their cauliflower out of the ground and
placed them all over their porch.
I thought noone would know who did it, and it would be a big puzzle, but all the time I was pulling
them out, the other neighbour was watching me from her kitchen, oops
It was a very out of character thing for me to do, but looking back now, I'm glad there is something
a "little nasty" that I did at least once, cause "other than that" I was kind of a goody goody.
When I saw her mother the next day, she just looked over at me and wagged her finger and shook
her head.

When I was a kid I used to say that I am going to be a Princess when I grow up. And it was very serious for me, it was my chosen career. My mother's colleagues nicknamed her "The Princess' Mother". My Grandfather, who was a convinced Communist, kept trying to talk me out of it, explaining to me that all princesses were bad and that we chased them away after the revolution. I listened to him, and never argued, but when he finished his speech, and asked me: tell me, what to do you now want to be when you grow up? I always replied - a Princess. It used to drive him mad I still want to be a princess, in my heart of hearts. No chance for it now, though...

And when I was about six years old, I really enjoyed reading Greek legends. And one day I told a friend of mine about Medusa, the one with snakes instead of hair. It scared her so much, that she couldn't sleep all night, crying with fear. She still rememebers this story, to this day
