    You might like to try it with ginger ale ~ for some reason most Americans I've met drink it that way :)

    Well I exaggerated a tad... 'slammed' should perhaps have read 'screeched to a halt, gently nestling against the car in front but in the process still creating a new modern art structure' (I'm not that bad a driver, I know where the brakes are) :D

    Lol, well at least you got something out of it :)

    Well, hmm, one of the biggest mistakes I made, I lied to a woman, that I then fell in love with her, and it was a pretty big lie, I really regretted it. (the lie, not the love thing)

    On a lighter note, I fell over a chair, backwards, and cut myself, it was a plastic kids chair, I was like 6 or 7.

    If we're talking childhood stories...

    *shudders*

    My (elder) sister was/is horse mad. She was a bit young to have her own horse at the time of this incident but used to imagine horsejumping in the back garden... creating big obstacles to jump with her imaginary horse. Being younger, my brother and I were roped into this activity. Being smaller the jumps became insurmountable barriers which could only be cleared by a high jumper style approach. We both ran, leapt, cleared the obstacle... on height...but oh no it's a crafty water jump with a small paddling pool the other side. Naturally we both landed in it but worse still my brother fell awkwardly and broke his wrist,

    Happy days :eek:

    Blah! No! No soda!!

    Paddy is either a shot or on ice.

    Tastes too good to ruin with soda.

    (Ever watch 'Father Ted'? Paddy is what Father Jack is often drinking. Ugh, what does that say about me????)

    My sisters use to play with their Barbie dolls. But they didn't have a Barbie Corvette, so they used my roller skates instead. They had their Barbies racing up and down the upstairs hallway.

    Meanwhile, I was going downstairs. As I turned down the stairs under the hall, one of the Barbies went over the cliff in her 'car'. Her 'car' landed on my head.

    Ouch! Yeah .. there was blood.

    I have 3, soon to be 4, or I should say the ladies of the house do. I keep them here on my property, but the price of feeding them is outrageous. I despise them.


    Sticking with the thread, Ive had alot of Duh moments that usually result in a hospital visit, but the one that is probably most amusing because its so rediculous is this-

    There were some old kids roller skates lying around in the garage, so my friend and I (he's smart too) decided we were gonna rollerskate. Of coarse the skates were tiny, so we decided to cut the toes out of them from about the edge of the laces forward. So were rolling around the garage laughing our tails off because it looks absolutely rediculous wearing these kids skates from 1970 with about half our feet hanging out the ends (barefoot). Up against one wall I had a stack of lumber sitting up on some stickers to keep them off the ground, so as Im rolling lazily toward said wall laughing, I realize I cant stop because my toes are hanging over the ends of the skates nullifying the pad on the front you would normally drag to stop. So I just put my hands out to stop myself, wich worked, but not before my feet went under the lowest board wich was just the perfect height that it caught both of my big toe nails and popped them both staight up in the air. It didnt hurt too bad, but the shock value of looking down at your adult sized feet hanging out kids sized skates, and your toe nails are sticking straight up, is quite something. I laugh everytime I think of that.
