  1. Hahaha! Let me count the ways! It’s a miracle I’m still alive. Usually it didn’t take much convincing for me to do something stupid, dangerous, or both. 😏

  2. I’ve lost count. I can be talked into almost anything. Maybe The upside down car loan back in the day was the worst. For a car I didn’t even like all that much.

  3. It was my dad when I was 7 years old. I loved watching birds in our backyard and tried to get close to them so I could touch them. My dad told me that if I put salt on their tails, I could catch them. So, I ran around with a box of salt. I gave up. It was not until I was around 20 yrs old when I realized that if I could get close enough to birds to put salt on their tails, that I could catch them without the salt. LOL!

  4. I have a grand-parent moment too…

    My grand parents had a house with concrete foundations, and one summer, it was infested with caterpillars. I loved everything that lived, and was fascinated with these little colorful things! So Grand Ma gave me a bucket with a little bit of liquid in it, and told me to pick the caterpillars and put them in the bucket. She told me, it would make them sleep, and I could watch them easier.

    So I went all afternoon… gathering the caterpillars, and killing them with some sort of poison.

    Thanks Grand Ma! 😉

      1. I know, right?? LOL At least I know I put all these caterpillars to sleep with the best intentions… But it was a bit treacherous, especially coming from my beloved grandma!!

      2. Thanks a lot, Micki! And thanks for joining The Cove too! I saw the notice from WP earlier today 🙂 I hope to see you there again soon! xx

  5. It took me a while to think of it. Freshman year in High School, I let my best buddy talk me into going out for football. I sucked at football. I never did much like contact sports. I finally did get to play in a game, almost the last of the season, for (I think) two plays, because we were getting our ass licked so completely that I couldn’t do any more damage. Other than that, it was some number of Friday evenings spent freezing my butt on the bench.

      1. And, the bench is almost the worst place to actually see the game, especially if the coach is pacing back and forth in front of you.

      1. I suppose, although it was only the Freshman team, not the important (varsity) one … not regarded as a big deal, and in a loosing season, not much glory.

  6. I was taught by the Church to be ashamed of my body. It’s sad how long it took me to reverse that conditioning. The bright side is that now I’m on a mission to reverse that shame with other women and it’s wonderful to witness the transition!

    1. Religion has an odd view of the human body. It has never made sense to me why they feel the need to take a beautiful creation and make it “sinful” to appreciate.
