LOL Not enough space for the best ones. But a few years ago, my mother decided to move all of her bedroom furniture to our roof. When we returned home and saw neighbors gathered to watch her, we tried to get her to come down. She refused. Cops came, but didn't help much. So we got the hose. It was quite a sight! Quite a shameful moment for me. We have since moved.
After the funeral of my best friend's grandma, his dad and aunt started arguing at the dinner table about their inheritance. They were so loud that he threw cold water on them. They still wouldn't shut up, so we took some food with us and locked ourselves in the bathroom and started eating. It was one of the best meals of our lives.
When I was about 1-2 years old, my mother went outside to find my older brother. When she came back inside she couldn't find me anywhere. She had the whole neighborhood out looking for hours. My father finally came into the kitchen to get a drink and there I was, sleeping on top of the counter. To this day, we can't figure out how I got myself up there with no help.
Me & my friends decided that a real life ghost hunter movie would be awesome. We grabbed my camera & rode the surrey (yes, a surrey) to this house that we were convinced was haunted. After a few attempts to break and enter and a game of ding dong ditch, a brittle old lady opened the door, yelled at us to stop. That night, Mom yelled too.
We were having dinner at my cousin's beautiful home. Her mama (my "Aunt Edna") is nuts. She was telling us all about some tailbone injury she had as a child. To fully illustrate her story and in front of 10 people, she dropped her pants at the table and insisted that my mom touch the spot where the injury occurred. My mom's face was priceless!
As young working parents, we met a teen girl at the pool. We thought she was trustworthy and invited her to become the new babysitter. She brought her own daughter to my house. She also found my credit cards and took her mother shopping at a department store. Pictures were taken at the store. She left her residence before police could find her!
My little sister was potty training. When she had to go to the bathroom she would pull down her pants and run in the direction of the bathroom. We were in church, sitting in the front pew, and she decided that she had to go and now. My mom didn't see her. We just heard the pastor say, "There she goes!" We turned around in time to see her bare butt running down the isle.
Once, my aunt and uncle were out at my house, shooting a gun after dark, and the neighbors called the cops. My aunt is in the army. When the cops finally showed up, my three-legged dog tried to bite the officer. The officer said, "I love me some three-legged dog" and then he told them to stop shooting the guns.
I grew up on a hilly street that we would sled down in the winter. My father used to pull us back up the hill on our sleds. When he would get too hot, he would horrify the neighbors by shedding his clothing down to his boxers and boots. He was quite buff at the time, so I don't think the ladies were REALLY offended.
