Things I probably shouldn't have done when I was a kid.
I probably shouldn't have given my tadpoles a bath with "Mr. Bubbles" bubble bath soap just because they looked kind of slimy.
I probably shouldn't have tried to make cookies using fresh mint pulled from the garden, a bottle of yellow food coloring, and the entire contents of the refrigerator when I was 8 and my Mom was busy looking at the Burt Reynolds centerfold in Cosmopolitan Magazine with the neighbor across the street.
I probably shouldn't have eaten all the "Zingers" and "Ho Ho's" in the freezer in one sitting. They were meant for school lunches.
I probably shouldn't have read, "Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sex But Were Afraid To Ask" when I was 12.
I probably shouldn't have snooped in my Mom's nightstand and found that book in the first place.
I probably shouldn't have opened and eaten the entire bottle of red candy gum called, "Sex Lax" that was given to my Mom as a gag gift on her 40th birthday when I was 12 and then confessed that I was a sex addict at dinner when I thought I had overdosed on them.
I probably shouldn't have been snooping in her dresser drawers for it either.
I probably shouldn't have gone through my oldest sister's stuff and read her diary.
I really shouldn't have admitted to it when confronted.
I shouldn't have memorized it and to this day still be able to recall everything she wrote and the day it happened.
I probably shouldn't have watched the same sister and her boyfriend saying goodnight on the porch through the bathroom window.
I probably should have cranked the bathroom window open before she and her boyfriend came home and not when she was standing in front of it.
I probably shouldn't have used a flashlight to watch them either.
I probably shouldn't have read an entire book while sitting hunched over my sister's sun lamp in an attempt to get a quick tan. That one sent me to the emergency room a couple hours later.
I'll probably need a seeing eye dog and a walking stick because of that when I'm older.
I probably shouldn't have watched any "Creature Feature" horror movie while I was alone, or ever, for that matter.
I probably shouldn't have worn my oldest sister's shoes when my feet were two sizes bigger than hers.
I probably should have told her sooner than a couple years ago that I did that.
I probably shouldn't have borrowed my other sister's prom dress and her "Miss Independence Day" sash from her reign as a princess on a parade float for Knott's Berry Farm in 1976 and worn it as a Halloween costume.
She probably wouldn't have known if I hadn't won the 4 foot tall trophy and my own sash for that dress/costume.
I probably shouldn't have mixed Boone's Farm Apple Wine, a beer or 5, and Theater Popcorn with lots of oily butter and M & M's at the drive-in when I was 16 and was supposed to start summer school the next day.
I probably should tell my Mom some day about that. She thought I had food poisoning.
I probably shouldn't have tried to sneak in the house at 5 AM through the squeaky side door when I was 17.
I probably am still grounded for that, but I'm afraid to ask.
I probably should keep the really, really crazy stuff I did private.
So what did you do that you probably shouldn't have when you were young?
