What's the dumbest thing you ever did as a child?

This one time- I have NO idea why- I thought it would be a good idea to wrap scotch tape around my hand and hold it over the candle on the dining room table. Went right up in flames and here I am screaming bloody murder, jumping up and down knocking the candle onto the carpet and setting THAT on fire as well. Let's just say my hand wasn't the only thing that burned that day. Boy did my mom beat my ass. Stupid...

  • I was about 12 and baking a cake. I leaned over the bowl with the mixer going and got a piece of my hair caught in the beaters. Holy cats the mess! Cake mix everywhere and my mom had to cut the beater out of my hair. I had Alfalfa-like sprouts for weeks while that section of hair grew out.

I fell into the water, scrapped my chin, arm, legs and chest all to hell.. in the end I was wet bleeding and can't even remember WHY i wanted on the other side of the creek. genius!

  • EASY!
    Me and best friend decided to go roll in a poison ivy patch and then rub it ALL over our bodies to get out of school. I was horrible and she was badly allergic to it. Her head swelled up like a Cabbage Patch Doll! LOL! Haven't had poison ivy since.

  • I got off at the wrong bus stop because I wanted to keep talking to one of my friends. I was around 7 at the time, and wow the bus driver didnt even say anything lol. I ended up cutting across this field in 90 degree heat to get home. By the time I got home I was sunburnt, tired, dehydrated and in the end also punished lol. As if I needed to be punished.

  • LOL. Thanks for the laughs. Still laughing:) My siblings and friends used to hide in cherry and apple bins whenever we played hide and seek. Years later, I found out how dangerous that was when a very strong gusting winds knocked a couple of stacks over onto someone's car. The car was totaled.
