My brother has no depth perception at all. He was talking to some friends and a butterfly flew like 2 feet away from him. He thought it was going to fly into him (because he couldn't see how far away it was). He flinched and jumped back. Now, we all call it "The Butterfly Incident!" LOL!
This is about my brother. He was playing baseball with my neighbors and his friends. All of a sudden, someone threw the ball at him. He turned his head sideways then the ball hit him. He fell and had to go to the emergency room. His ear was bleeding really bad, but guess what? My parents wouldn't even let him miss a day of school so he had to go! ~Kat
I was running late for school one day and forgot to grab my keys by the door. I didn't realize it 'til the end of school. I had to climb through the bathroom window that was right above the tub. I slipped and somehow broke the faucet in the tub. The police were called by my neighbors because my dog was barking like crazy and wouldn't stop. Worst day ever!
One 4th of July, my family and friends were enjoying a fine time with beer, booze, & homemade explosives. We were rudely interrupted by a lunatic neighbor screaming about how we were going to blow up his house. He screamed on and on about how it was illegal. My dad's crazy friend ran out with an decommissioned WW2 grenade and screamed, "Is THIS illegal?" The neighbor fled.
My great-grandpa divorced a woman and married her daughter and they had my grandpa and his brothers. My grandpa's brother married my grandma's sister and his other brother married my grandma's cousin. My cousin got one of my friends pregnant, and then my other cousin got that same friend's sister pregnant. Every generation, our family gets a little more messed up.
My Mom decided to throw a birthday party for my 11th birthday. She invited all the neighborhood kids & made a big cake. Somehow I got food poisoning before the cake was cut but my mom didn't want to stop the party. The kids proceeded to play & eat my cake while I lay in agony on the living room couch. Once the kids went home my mom gave me some Pepto & sent me to bed.
My little cousin made up a story about me having drugs under my bed. It was a complete lie. He was no stranger to telling ridiculous lies. It was a phase. He told me he was gonna tell my parents what he "found," so I made up a story about him using the kitty litter box to do his bathroom business. To this day, I bring up pooping in the cat box to keep him in line!
My folks had a friend who worked at a thrift store. We would shop for 2 hours or so. We were so confused as kids, because we would then just walk away after putting the carts in a corner. We would later return at around midnight & the stuff would be in trash bags outside of the building. We would leave a $20 dollar bill under a rock. Now that's what I call being thrifty!
When I was in grade school, my mom kept telling me how much she admired this guy in my grade. There were times in middle school where I had a feeling that she wanted me to date him. Never happened. The two of us weren't even friends. Super awkward. Now she's doing the same thing to my little sister.
