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.
When we were younger, my mum bought me and my brother a golden retriever puppy! He was so cute we could never leave him alone. The one time we did happened to be the same day my mum was cooking roast lamb for Sunday dinner; it took her hours to get everything nice. She came to get us when it was ready and when we got back the dog was on the table and the lamb??? All gone!
In the 5th grade I went to an amusement park for my friend's birthday. I wore my favorite royal blue polyester pants. I happily rode the water log ride, but spread my legs too wide on the log and split my pants. My mom wouldn't let me go home because I was gonna ruin it for the birthday girl and my other friends. I cried and then went on all the rides.
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.
When my son was 2 I was over-stressed. I was in the bathroom doing my hair. My son was in the kitchen and knocked a box of strike matches onto the floor, causing a fire. He came to me and said, "Mommy, fire!" I said, "That's nice, honey, tell your daddy." My husband came in a few minutes later and said, "Honey ...." I had had no idea what my son had told me. Whew!
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
When our kids were little, we had a niece come and stay with us. We were poor and the utility company turned our electricity off. My husband thought, "No problem!" He went in the back yard, dug a hole, and sank an ice chest in it. He then put our perishables in it instead of the fridge. We were so embarrassed and lived with that hole in the yard for 12 years before moving.
I have 2 brothers, one good, one bad. Bad brother always got in trouble, always said it wasn't his fault & was a good liar. I would lend my car to both brothers & one day noticed it had damage. Since I wasn't told I blamed bad brother. He denied it, no one believed him & he was grounded. Years later, over holiday dinner, good brother confessed he did it...oops!
when i was 6 years old dad wanted to play with me. so, he puts two couches in front of each other, and between them he puts a glass table. "lets jump from this couch to that couch over the table" dad says. and while i'm jumping, suddenly it's all white and red. OMG my head was bleeding because i smashed the table with my head!
