I saw the chat here about dumb things that we did when we were kids and I couldn't think of anything that may stand out where I am concerned, but I did think of one thing that I did have happen when I was seventeen which of course is one year shy of not being labeled a kid anymore. My wisdom teeth were taken from me that year, but when they got removed, four more teeth were taken from my mouth because they had to be removed as well. I wanted everything done at once so that I wouldn't have to relive another dental horror later on.

God bless you always!!!

P.S. In other words, this east Tennessee girl knows all about pain. :D :D :D

When I was around 17 years old working at arbys in a mall

Two girls came in and said they were being harassed by a bunch of guys, I jumped over the counter and ran into the mall ( turns out there was 10 of them) I started screaming and bitching them out I went up to the biggest guy and kept saying come on mother fucker punch me and I will knock you on your ass, he didn't do anything and they all walked away


I couldn't figure it out till I turned around and there was 20 guys behind me

Bought a new Dodge Challenger Hellcat in 18, got up to 130 coming out of a small town, met a trooper, got to 160 mph and got home and put it up before the State Police helicopter got to the area. That car was too damn fast and hard to drive just 10-15 mph over the speed limit. Gutsy and craziest thing I have every done

I ate at a Cici’s Pizza Buffet once. Too risky now that I have kids and a wife.

I ditched a cop in Chicago !!
It was 2000: I ran a red and I saw the cop put on sirens and turn around . I floored it and cut through the cities back side streets . I immediately got into my garage and closed it and heard sirens .
I only did this because I knew the exact route and I only had 2 miles to go

What is so bad about that place? I've heard of the place, but there isn't one anywhere near me and so I have never once been to them before.

God bless you always!!!

Being the cook on a tuna boat that did not allow women on board when I turned 21. I hid my butt length hair under a floppy seaman's cap and wore a slicker all the time and kept my head down when he came into the galley. Crew named me Charlie so Cap'n wouldn't find out, but he did. I was put ashore about 3 weeks or so later. Escorted by Cap'n himself who said he hated to do it but......them's his rules. :auiqs.jpg:

It was a blast.

CiCi 's Is rated one of the worst . Plus they wanted me and my work crew to go some where else for lunch. Not sure if was our work clothes or that two of my crew was black. But they have never and will never get a penny out of my pocket.

Reputation for being bad food and not clean. I honestly enjoyed my trip there and left satisfied. My wife was grossed out about it. She hosed me down in the back yard and quarantined me for a few days and this was 10 years ago. Now that my kids are nearly grown I’d do it again! :)

(I was sorta a bad girl:eusa_shhh:). And even in later years. I only started to calm down in about 1989, give or take.;)

Drinking wine, eating cheese, catching rays
I've skydived, flown aerobatics, done trick dives off a 3-meter board, SCUBA dived (still do), fly a paraglider, ski (telemark) on avalanche-prone slopes that are as steep as staircases.

For most people that's a lifetime bucket list.....For me, it's Tuesday.
