On Thanksgiving the entire family get together. The neighborhood that the house we go to is in a neighborhood that the houses all look very similar. My grandma swore that this one house was the house we were looking for. So my grandma and i walk into this house, see a couple of strange people but keep going in and walk right into the wrong house while they are saying grace
When I was a kid growing up in the Ozarks we were driving home when we met our neighbors on the road. They motioned for us to stop. In the back of their pickup was their kid bent over with his head down inside a metal milk can. They couldn't pull him out so they were on the way to the ER. Don't remember how the Dr. got him out, but his ears were bruised for a while.
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.
My mom was babysitting a large group of neighborhood kids one afternoon, all of which were around my age (I think I was about 6). I decided we should play barbershop and then proceeded to cut off everyone's hair except my own. Once my mom saw the bad haircuts she thought it best to hack off mine as well, thinking the other parents would be less mad.
