Today’s dare is “Something mischievous I did as a child…”! Truth is, I always got into some sort of mischief as a child. I truly believe because of that, in return, my son is going to be mischievous, even more than he already is!
The first incident that stuck out in my mind was when I was six years old. A toy catalog had arrived in the mail. I was already planning all the toys I was going to circle to show my mom which ones I wanted. She had other plans. She tossed the catalog in the trash.
Later that night after dinner, while my parents were upstairs, I decided to dig through the trash and find the catalog. Through all the thrown-out left overs and other yucky garbage, I could not find it! So I decided to dump the garbage all over the floor till that catalog was in my hands. However, I didn’t want to sit on the hard cold kitchen tile to shift through the mess. So I carried the trash can into the living room, and dumped it right there on the carpet.
Finally found the catalog and started to put the garbage back in the trash can. I figured the pattern of the carpet would hide the huge trash stain I had created. What I didn’t bet on was my brother going to tell on me! I still remember how speechless my parents were. They absolutely could not believe why I had done such a thing. Looking back, I’m not sure why either. Guess that catalog has some awesome toys in it!
What about you? What was something mischievous you did as a child?
