    Yeah, I used to try to spin Dizzly Grizzlies around as best I could to make them dizzy, because that's how it was in the commercials: they spun around, and they had those little dizzying swirls over their eyes.

    I flushed $200 down the potty once. :o

    And when I was little, I used to go to chuckle cheese literally every day. And after the robots were done pre forming, and the curtain closed, I would sneak behind the curtain and draw on the robots. With yellow and green sharpies...

    Wow, I was a crazy kid.

    I apparently flushed something of importance down the toilet once as a tot, I can't remember what it was though, it was either my dad's belts, or his cross-stitching threads.

    I once picked up the vacuum when it had the hose piece on it, and tried to clean off a puzzle thing I had of the U.S. states, and Maine got sucked into the vacuum. So then me and my mom had to open up the bag and find it.

    Chuckle Cheese! What a fun place! So much chuckling! :)

    (Yeah, I couldn't resist)

    I once put toothpaste in a hole in the wall when I was probably 2 or 3. My sister told on me... in fact, she still likes to bring that one up.
    I also earned the title "tape queen" for a few incidents around the age of 3.

    Haha, I used to be called" tape king," but probably for a different reason. When wrapping gifts, I always used an abundant amount of tape, much more than necessary.

    Oh, I'm famous (or infamous) for my present wrapping skills. I either use too much tape, or I'll improvise and use those giant roles of clear packing tape to just cover all of the wrapping paper.

    ---------------
    I am told I drew on the walls with crayons. I have no memory of this and categorically deny it.

    I think riding down the sidewalk on the handles of a BigWheel, or doing Gonzo-style leaps from the top of the pool slide into the pool (hurdling an expanse of concrete -- we only did this when we were sure no adult was watching) were probably the dumbest things I ever did.

    I'd still do the slide jump. That was wicked fun. ;)

    Oh believe me, there's a LOT of really stupid/embarrassing things that my parents (especially my mother) just LOVE to bring up in conversation that I supposedly did that I have absolutely no memory or recollection of whatsoever... sometimes I think they may possibly exaggerate or make these things up... just to name a couple, like apparently I was signed up for t-ball practice when I was little, but I allegedly spent more time chasing butterflies than I did playing the game; or apparently I was oh-so-in-love with my first grade teacher so much that I regarded her fiancee as a rival.

    Again, NO recollection of these alleged incidents whatsoever.

    Interesting you can't recall these, considering that by the time your able to play t-ball or be "oh-so-in-love" with someone, usually you'd remember those things...

    There's a number of times when people claimed I said or did something I'm pretty sure I didn't do, especially right after they happened. Like one time, I did something I wasn't supposed to do. When my mom picked me up from the babysitter, I kept close watch to make sure my babysitter didn't tell my mom, thinking she wouldn't if I was in the room. She did tell my mom, and right after that, I made a fist at her, pushing all my fingers down until forming a fist shape. My mom got on me, mentioning that I gave her the middle finger, which I didn't recall doing and said I didn't do. The next day my babysitter asked why I lied about giving the middle finger, which I thought I didn't (she said that I pushed my fingers on different sides one at a time, which would end with my middle finger being pushed down after the others, but I was pretty sure I didn't do it that way).

    A similar occasion I said something and my mom quickly asked what I said, thinking I had cussed. One of my cousins quickly told my mom what I thought I had said, but later he was talking about it, saying that I did say the cuss word that my mom thought I said and I was sure I didn't.

    Which is why I can't help but think my parents exaggerate certain things just to make a bigger deal out of them than they really are (believe me, my mother's notorious for doing that). I remember being fond of my first grade teacher, THAT much I do remember, she was a great and fun teacher who made that year enjoyable, but I certainly don't remember being so "in love" with her to the point that I was actually jealous of her fiancee. Elmo, last year when she returned to town for her mother's funeral (after that year, she and her husband relocated to California), my mother brought all of that up, and I stepped in and said that I had no recollection of any of that.

    And I certainly don't remember trying out for t-ball, let alone chasing butterflies, and I have a pretty good memory... I can actually remember being inside my mom's womb! From birth to about three years old is a little spotty and fuzzy, but just about most from three years till now I remember pretty well.

    And those are the kind of things when no one ever knows what happened. Often times I tell my mom of things I was sure she told me when I was little that I later found not to be true, (not that she was lying, just trying to answer a curious child), and she isn't convinced that she actually did. Times you wish you had a video camera that recorded your every move...

    EDIT: Ziffeled...

    Yay. For once, I'm the ziffeler instead of the ziffelee.

    You actually remember being inside your mom's womb? I didn't even know that that was really possible...I wonder how many other people are like that...

    I was afraid to eat Air heads, because I thought my head would explode.

    I didn't know of the concept of digestion, so I thought eventually, there'd be so much chewed up food inside you that it filled up all the way to the back of your throat, and when that happened, you couldn't eat anymore.

    I got one that nearly beats them all. I stuck puzzle pieces into my VCR...I wasn't allowed to watch TV for a week after, lol.
