Name a time when you got into big trouble with your parents.
Just woke up from a "nap" and it's 11:30 pm. Was supposed to pick up 2 friends and go to a party in RI a few hours ago. Sonofabitch!
I got sent to the Principles office in the 3rd grade for spitting all the water in my mouth from the fountain on a stupid little boy. And, I said i wouldn't say "I'm sorry". I sure got a good whoopin' at home.
I remember getting into big trouble with my mother when I was four-years-old because I was swining on the picket fence gate. She told me more than once to stop swinging on the gate. But it was so much fun to swing on the gate, I kept doing it. She finally lost her temper and gave me a wallop (this was when it was still okay to wallop your child). That finally got my attention!
I was an angel as a teen.
Still searching for the right brainy quote.
The record shows I was an angel because I didn't get caught, smile. One of my brothers, on the other hand, still apologizes for the trouble he caused my parents when he was a teen. He apologized again at New Years.
Still good at that?
Where to start? Underage drinking, racing cars, arrested for curfew violation? Or should we skip ahead to the high school years?

Why am I not surprised?
I did get picked up by the cops one time for violating curfew. My mom worked for the city and it being such a small town the water department (where she was) was in the same building as the police. So, the cops brought my friend and I home and woke up my mom and told her where they found us. We just went out for a walk. Seriously. Just a walk. Not out to cause trouble at all. I was always the responsible, well-behaved one.
We were all in the Student Leader program and had to miss class to go to court. Burn.
Student Leader Program? Did that stunt get you kicked out of that organization?
Nope, my mom gave me a note that said nothing about Court.
My optometrist was on the city council and one of the other girls arrested had a brother in government. We were told to plead "not guilty" and we did and we weren't.
I swear I did NOT know there was a curfew law until I got arrested along with 6 of my closest friends. I told the cops I'd spend the night in jail before calling my parents to post bail. They backed down.
[EDIT] Deleted due to being seen as a "conflictual discussion of personal issues."
Note to self: Do not fall asleep in the glider on the porch. You may wake up looking like the crazy queer cat woman, and I am not talking about the sexy chic who gave the bat boys such a hard time.
I cut off all my baby sister's hair while she was sleeping when she was 3 and I was 5. She retaliated in kind a few months later. I'm lucky I still have ears!
That information is available only on a need-to-know basis. :-)
I really need to know. I'm writing this novel about a creative but troubled youth who wants to be a film maker, and there's a great big gaping hole in the plot line.
:( This is my best pathetic look.
My brother and I filled a large coffee can with garden snakes and hid them in hole dug into the floor of his bedroom, where the pipe burst each winter. Coming home from school we could hear my mother's screams from the corner. She was on top of the toilet tank, hanging onto the shower bar. We picked up all but the tiniest snake and headed for a tree-house we had built in a nearby woods. We slept up there for days, sneaking into our real house in the middle of the night for clothes and food.
On the whole I was a bit of a goody two shoes when I lived with the olds. I did cause minor damage to both parents' cars when I first got my license. Oh, and I smashed an unreplacable window playing tennis with apples.... Okay, so a goody two shoes with a propensity to cause damage!!
(Friend's mum caught us fooling around in her bed one time which was interesting.....)
I've seen that movie. Crazy.
(The movie is actually called "Bug Crush" but that didn't fit the topic.)
I know bug trouble was more fun but I had to fix it. Now everyone is going wonder wtf you guys are talking about!
Haha, Diana. But I suspect they wonder that all the time about me anyway.
Good morning my fellowette off kilter Parker!
Twitter Time @kdhales
most think we're a bit off anyway....
like Minnie and Medicine Woman! I'm tryig my best to move to the front of the Park (remember K-Mac?)!
There is not enough space to list the big troubles. I know, you think I'm lying, BUT I was the quiet shy one growing up.......I was always into something!
Morning, ladies and cutey pie gent! It's nice to play a bit in the Park. I've been extremely busy lately (that's a good thing) and am in need of a bit of frolic!
Edit: still thinking....I did kill my first car! I didn't know that when the oil light came on it meant to stop right then and get some oil. By the time I got home the engine was knocking....and never heard from again. Parents had to get the thing hawled off for scrap. Which, now that I think about it. If it was hawled off for scrap, then it wasn't worth much anyway! Crapola, they should have gotten me a better car!
Edit 2: got caught playing 'doctor' with a friend...
Edit 3: got grounded for the first two weeks of summer vacation 'cause I got a C for the year in Geometry. They shoulda got me a tutor!
See, I'm still not at fault for any of this stuff! hehehehehe
Tex, I'm available. Better late than never.
Do you mean the time I was stung by a bee?
