What funny things did you do as a teen?

My husband and I were talking about hockey, which made me remember watching hockey as a teenager (I LOVED hockey back the and still enjoy it when I can watch it). Well, then I remembered when I babysat at our neighbor's, also my pastor and his family, I would take my little black and white TV over some nights (with their permission) to watch TV. My pastor, his wife and I would often stay up after they got home and watch or finish watching the game. The funniest part about this was I walked down our country road in the dark with my little black and white TV! It cracks me up thinking about it!

This is just one of my funny things.

      Fan here! I had my room, covered in Cleveland Indian memorabilia (along with my Star Wars stuff). I was obsessed with baseball, and I still love it!

        Funny things... My sister use to make me cover for her when she snook out. My mom worked graveyard. When my mom would call on her breaks, I'd tell her my sister was in the bathroom taking a shower or taking a dump. To keep things consistent, I would always answer the phone and the few times my mom demanded that I put my sister on the phone, she was actually home and we'd laugh our heads off at throwing my mom off.

        As an adult and mother to be, I don't find these things so funny anymore. But what I'll do differently with my kids is make sure we have an open, ask me anything relationship so they know they don't ever have to sneak around behind my back.

          My best-friend and I would put coins on the train tracks--I still have the coins. We would race go-carts, 3-wheelers, and dirt bikes through the mud and rain around our track. We lived on 10 acres at one point, so we had a track for our toys that was an acre or so. I loved it when it was muddy! That was so much fun.
          Aside from that, I was a good girl (still am), so I never did anything wild or out of control. I was a dare devil, stunt wise, as a child though (please, Lord, do not let my son be like that). I am hoping my son becomes a hall monitor or school crossing guard. Lol

          To get on the bus for college, I walked 5 miles--sometimes 7, there and back (but that was in my 20s).

            I live in a small community made up of 4 towns stretching about 18 miles. So when we would sneak out my cousin would pick me and whomever I had spending the night up on his 4 wheeler. We would meet our other friends either at the rodeo grounds or by the river. Everyone came on 4 wheelers so it wasn't as loud and easier to drive the backroads and through fields.

                I was into the whole Purple makeup theme. I looked like a clown in a lot of my high school pictures.

                  I am so clumsy that it could make a whole book of embarrassing stories. When I first moved to Kentucky (in the 8th grade) I had trouble understanding their accents - someone asked me for some chocolate and I thought they asked how to spell chocolate. Needless to say I didn't say yes or no. The whole class - including the teacher laughed for about twenty minutes. When I got into High School I ended up having to move to another school half way in the school year. The accents got even worse! I pretty much stayed silent after that. :)
