One of my older brothers and I wanted to play chicken by throwing his darts at each other's feet. Whoever could get the dart the closest to the other person's feet, without touching their feet wins. My brother was pretty good, but it was my turn. I threw the dart and it accidentally landed right on my brother's foot and stuck. I yelled "You win!"
Once when my parents were out, my older sisters and I got into a HUGE water war. It started with doing the dishes together & escalated into pans of water being thrown, hoses being sprayed though the windows, buckets filled from the pool... We got it all cleaned up & would have gotten away w/ it, except our parents noticed the water dripping from the ceiling.
When I was 8 yrs old, I climbed into our old stick shift car that was parked in our really sloped driveway to pretend to drive and I knocked the center brake down and the car started rolling backwards down the driveway and once it gained speed, I did a jump and roll out of the car onto the lawn and watched the car get into a crash once it hit the street that totaled it.
I was around 10 and playing in the playhouse my father had made for me. I was playing with candles, thinking it was fun. Before I knew it I was bored, went inside to watch TV with my sisters. Eventually the candles melted and burnt down the entire playhouse! LOL Then, to prevent it from spreading to another, my dad got the tractor and pushed it.
My brother and I were dog sitting for the neighbors. Knowing my brother was afraid of their dog, I started running through their house screaming bloody murder, which got the dog chasing me for real. My brother freaked as I ran towards him and slammed the door in my face, which I knocked right off all of its hinges and onto my brother.
I was about 7 or 8, it was new years and it was at my aunts house, there were about 30 people there. well when it came to firework time my dad was more exited about it then any one else and all of a sudden he is throwing a firework in the air and well it had landed in his car and went off. he had to get the inside of the whole car done
One day, mom decided we were going to paint the bathroom. Me, my sisters, and cousin (ages 9, 10, and 11) were painting. My youngest sister said something that made me mad and I painted her face. She got mad and painted my hair. To make a long story short, the bathroom looked like a mess and 4 little girls were covered in baby blue paint. The room is still half-done.
Several years ago, my mom was decorating the house for Christmas. When she had finished decorating the tree, she asked my big brother to plug in the lights. He knocked the tree over instead. He said Mom was so mad, it looked like she had smoke coming out of her ears and the top of her head! To this day, I keep that in mind when I help her decorate the tree!
My big brother was watching the 1985 Iron Bowl. Alabama scored the game-winning field goal, and he was so excited, he raised his fist in celebration. However, he raised it just a little too high, and ended up punching a hole in the ceiling! Later on, he got some materials together to patch the hole.
I had four brothers and a gap in my front teeth. Although I was only nine, I knew when they started talking about the gap that something bad was about to happen. Unfortunately, I didn't get away quick enough. They debated over what would fit--a dime or a nickel. That's how I wound up at the dentist's office with a nickel stuck between my front teeth.
