Stupid Kid Games, Stunts or Pranks
How about another trip down memory lane? Remember all those stupid things you did as a kid that you would never do now? I'm sure most of us can think of at least one.
Uncle Enore, over at the Bunch of Dump Crap blog, got me started on this. He was ranting about people spitting on the sidewalk, or some such. I reminded him that honking loogies can have it's fun side. Reminded me of a true story that happened when I was going to junior high school in Tustin, CA:
I was walking down Charloma Drive on the way to school with a couple friends. Somehow we got started in the silly little spit fight. We started gargling up big loogies and spitting them at each other's legs or feet and see if the other guy was quick enough to move his feet out of the way.
Thing is we did it slow enough so it wasn't too hard to avoid the loogie. I don't think we really wanted to hit the other guy.
So, I go overboard and generate the mother of all loogies. I go to spit it between Mark's legs but missed and hit him right on the front of his pants below one of his pockets. Ooops!
That thing must have splattered to three inches. It grossed us all out. Mark's looking down on it going something like "Oh no, oh no...", grossed out as the rest of us and trying to figure how he's going to get it off of him. Strangely enough, I think we were laughing about it at the same time.
All of the sudden Mark throws up his breakfast on the sidewalk. At least some of it. Then we really started laughing, even Mark.
He eventually scraped it of his leg with a stick and we laughed all the way to school.
Sounds like fun, huh?
I had an old Crossman spring loaded bb hand gun. Didn't have a lot of power, but could still hurt you. I remember we'd back off a few yards and shoot each other in the butt with it. Then, you'd move closer and keep shooting until it hurt to much or someone just chickened out.
Stupid, huh? Don't try that at home, kids.
Anyone else have any stupid games, stunts or pranks you did as a kid that you'd like to share?
