I suspect this is the case for many people, because:

1) kids are so earnestly themselves

Agreed –- both of those are great points. It’s interesting what some of those past experiences can teach us, especially once we’re old (and wise) enough to put them in perspective.

ODFFA's story reminded me of another thing that happened to me.

Beautiful sunny afternoon in Spring. I'm waking home from work, passing by the park. Two cute girls coming from the other direction, probably just got out of classes at the university. I veer left of the sidewalk to let them by.

Just as they pass by I walk into an invisible spider web hanging from a tree with a hundred hatchlings in my face and hair.

From their perspective all they see is this fat guy suddenly roar and start flailing his arms around as he approached them. One girl screamed and they took off. I feel so bad if I traumatized them.

Ahhh, I just got itchy all over just hearing about this! Never mind the girls, I am surprised you are not traumatised from being covered in tiny spiders like that, I'd have had a full blown panic attack!

Hahaha, sorry to laugh but I can't even tell you how much I relate to this -- particularly the spider part. Every place that I've lived in the last 5 or so years has had tons of relatively low hanging trees around them. I don't know what it is but I am a fucking magnet when it comes to any web-like substance. It even happens in places you wouldn't think a web could exist; like they fabricate out of thin air just to assault my face.

Nothing, and I mean nothing, pisses me off more than walking face first into a spider web. Even thinking about it makes my skin crawl.

Come to think of it, I guess this counts as a spider-related revealing story!

My mother once had to kick the door down off of our bathroom because I had gone to the toilet and locked the door behind me. It was one of those bolt locks as well where you move the bolt across into the little holders screwed into the door. Now when I was in there I saw the mother of all spiders crawl out from the radiator between me and the door. I am terrified and the bathroom is tiny and I just freaked out and climbed on top of the toilet seat and screamed at the top of my lungs over and over until my mum kicked the door down and saved me from the evil spider!

I once saw, from a few blocks away, a girl walking towards me while making really weird gestures with her arms. I was bracing myself to avoid eye contact, when she got close enough for me to see the very thin leash she was holding, and the ferret running around on the end of it.

Heh. Nope. I grew up in the country so I'm used to crawlies. Aside from the initial surprise, it didn't faze me. Just hung my shirt outside to blow off and had a shower.

Two stories that reveal something about me (and my long-suffering wife):

1. I met my wife-to-be at the library. We got to chatting, checked our books out, and decided to continue the conversation at a restaurant about a mile away. We both headed for our cars, planning to meet up at the restaurant, when I suddenly remembered I had WALKED to the library. So I had to run after the poor girl and beg a ride from her.

2. Early in our marriage, after making love, my wife lay back in my arms and sighed, "What are you thinking about?" I replied, truthfully, "Etruscan pottery." She never asked again.

She has stuck with me despite all this, and we are celebrating our thirty-first anniversary today.

My husband was once channel-surfing and came across a "travel" show, which was really an excuse to show lots of swimsuit models. He regarded it with a bored expression until they cut to a shot of a sea-turtle.
Him: "Look! A turtle!"
Me: "I love you."
Him: "What?"

I love this thread so much I'll stop lurking for a moment to chime in.

During my freshman and sophomore years of college, I struck up a friendship with a vocal performance major who lived on my floor. We both liked the same kinds of music, both loved to sing, and both had rather twisted senses of humor, so, when it was announced that our campus would be starting a weekly coffee house in the basement of our dorm, we decided to form a band and perform at it.

Of course the most important part of forming a band is naming it. We went through all sorts of absurd choices until we finally came to one that we felt really fit us. This was back in the golden era of Livejournal and Xanga and internet quizzes like "which pop-punk band are you?" and "which mythological creature speaks to your soul?" I was wasting time between classes one day by taking some of these silly quizzes, one of which was "what angel are you?" or something like that. I cracked up at my answer and immediately got the brilliant idea to have my bandmate take the quiz, too. So I sent her the link, she took it with an equally hilarious result, and we decided that our "angels" would be the perfect band name.

So that is how two geeky, bespectacled, emo college girls singing pretty soprano harmonies to songs such as Alkaline Trio's "Radio," Dashboard Confessional's "Screaming Infidelities," and John Denver's "Annie's Song," accompanied by an acoustic guitar, came to be known as Death and Vengeance.

I am still known as Death by most of my college friends.

1. So I don't remeber the lyrics, but as a child I used to have this sassy ass song I would sing as I was on the toilet. No matter where I was. I would sing it. It was about a fairy... or something along those lines.

2. As kids, my sister and I hated each other and tried to get one another in trouble. We used to go around writing each others names on the walls with markers so my mom would think that the other one did it, but then we started writing our own names on the wall to make it even more confusing... we were/are weird.

3. In high school, I was shy, but my best friend Cody (thank god) had been there since freshman year... he always got me in trouble. We were crazy. He ran that school. Freshman year, mind you, this is like the beginning of our friendship. It was homecoming week and there was parades outside our school and an assembly inside, and us being annoying little freshman were running around inside. Our mascot was an Indian head so my friend Lisa at the time ran across the gym in front of the whole school right before the assembly started, wearing it like a moron and then Cody followed her and I followed Cody... as I was running, at some point I fumbled and tripped, did an awesome barrel roll in from of the ENTIRE school and they all stopped, did that little "GASP" you hear in movies, and BUSTED OUT LAUGHING. This is something I will remember - literally forever - and also described how clumsy I am and what kind of crap I got myself into back in my high school days... Just sums up my personality!

4. One of my ex boyfriends from high school had told me once he knew when he had fallen in love with me (which no one has ever told me WHEN they'd fallen in love with me) is when he had to go to the nursing home to see his grandmother and though I couldn't be there with him, he was worried about not being able to talk to me and I told him not to worry about it, to basically focus his attention on her and to talk to me whenever he has time after, that it was no issue. I had never been one to say stuff like that because it was all new to me, but it came naturally and I'll always remember this. Basically made me realize that caring like that (I was young and didn't know a lot about relationships lol) is a really good thing and that I've always been genuine about caring for others.

I don't remember what I had said previous to this because frankly, I say a lot of dumb things but one of friends from uni declared me 'the dumbest smart person they had ever met'. I feel that sums me up pretty well!

The other thing that comes to mind is probably something that doesn't come across too well online, which is my sense of humour. I still get the two sentences from this anecdote quoted at me by my uni friends! First off, somebody held a door open for me and said 'ladies first' and for some reason I responded by saying 'I'm not a lady, you go first!" and stopping on the spot. My friend thought this was so hilarious he told my boyfriend at the time that I wasn't a lady. Cue bickering about my female-ness until I eventually shouted at the top of my lungs 'if you don't shut up I'm going to get my tits out!' in the middle of the biology department car park.

I think those two quotes/anecdotes probably sum up my randomness and bizarre sense of humour that people either get or stare blankly at me!
haha really ??? you said that ;-) O.O

i love you haha
i really like those crazy things although i would get beet red in thef ace if i were your bf back then lol

Well, at my 21st, my two best friends went around asking everyone if they had any funny stories about me. Peoples eyes would light up straight away and they'd say "YES!"
At which point my friends would interject with "Family friendly!!"
Whereupon their faces would fall, and they'd just stand there going "uhhhmmm..."

When I was little, I wanted to walk around the mall I work in now dressed as Rainbow Brite. I get to stand out the front of my shop dressed like a Sylvanian Families rabbit once a year though, which is a close second.

As a teenager, I was questioned by the police regarding the burning of one church and one school. Wasn't responsible for either, but it was nice that they thought of me.

Somehow this ^^^^^^ doesn't surprise me....
=================================

I guess that when I first read about the game ‘Halo’ I mis-read the character title, which led me to read other things about the game in a certain light, which made me rather like the sound of the game. I mean, when everyone else has been taken down, the freaking cook turns out to be a total bad-ass and tears through the enemy as an unstoppable force? It was almost enough to make me go buy a game console, just so I could play this Master Chef guy.

When I finally realized that I’d missed seeing an ‘I’, and that the character was actually a faceless super-soldier my sense of disappointment was massive; it felt like one of those moments as a kid where your naive illusions get shattered. And my desire to play the game entirely disappeared—in truth I still kind of resent it for letting me down, even if it was all my own fault.

I'd really like to see a picture of that!
