#1: going to the bottle bank.
#2: watering the garden.
i was a kid we used to go and collect glass bottles from everybody's house and take them to the recycling thing for a nominal fee.
i was such a cunt as a child, obviously.
I used to love that!
Usually come home with random things I've found, ha ha.
Look how manly I am throwing this rubbish away.
and hopefully will be this year too!
or is he barred from using the hosepipe?
pressing the button in the lift.
on a pedestrian crossing?
& not waiting for the green man, if you were with a rebellious adult.
#4: using dad's deodorant after going swimming.
well done! :)
they weren't soiled.
DAMN the council for stealing my smashing fun
i used to love that.
going into an office.
i used to love going to work with my dad when i was too young to be at home alone.
now offices= boring!
because of the spiders.
And I was always made to because I was small so it was easiest to get the Christmas decorations from out the back.
cos there was no proper flooring.
and i never got to when i grew up either.
and now my parents dont live there anymore. which means ill never get the chance.
if you can go up the loft. If they say no tell them it's your dying wish and cough a little.
Especially if you have to climb up without ladders.
I came down with a Lou Reed single, broken scalectrix, a cardigan and an NES.
cave of treasures. I need to explore my parents loft again, I think my sylvanian families are up there somewhere.
who had the whole Sylvanian families collection except for the badger doctor or whatever. He spent all his time at work on ebay looking for Dr Badger.
I'd thought about Sylvanian Families in YEARS and it immediately spurred me to look on ebay to see what's out there. I had the Gypsy caravan and the beavers lived in it.
it's the bear doctor.
he looks nerdy. Bet he's a good doctor, though.
to diagnose me
It's cool and quiet and completly isolated. I read with a torch up there occasionally.
going in the carwash!
#5: using any form of public transport.
shame it's so environmentally MEAN
pushing the trolley in the supermarket
sitting in the front of the car
Stockton was so much bollocks that when we went to boro, it was amazing!
and when the draymen arrived every week I was so, so excited. It was brilliant watching them throwing the barrels about effortlessly, and staking the crates of bottles, and they both had these ace flatcaps and fabulous 'apron' type things. They were awesome. I loved those times.
things that were mundane when you were a kid but would be tremendously exciting now pretty much = living in a pub
being allowed to use an exciting stationery appliance. e.g. staplers and hole punches.
limbs/faces in my Dad's office
or your own?
and my sisters'
inside of the racks of carpets in carpet shops.
McDonalds birthday parties!!! In the giant fridge!!!!
as a child :(
Proof, if it were needed, the McDonalds is essential to the healthy wellbeing of chlidren around the world.
That used to be brilliant. I also used to tidy up the shelves in supermarkets as I went by. Little did I know that I would actually be getting paid to do it when I hit 16
the stuff I found to the shop assistant. I never understood why they weren't grateful. I also loved hiding behind the clothes so that when someone would start to leaf through they'd get a fright!
they're still fun.
Kids...LOVE TO SLEEP OVER!
what do I win?
Sent Recorded delivery.
on the bus.
i don't get the bus very often
you women are so bloody confusing, i don't know whether I'm coming or going.
Women change their minds more often than they change their pants.
i was really disappointed when i first went on the underground escalators as a grown up, i'd remembered them being huuuuuuuuuuuge when i was a kid
Going on the train, pressing the button on buses, and especially collecting the security tags and stuff at shops.
Playing on the roof
Hide and Seek (in the dark!)
yoyos are awesome!
hide and seek!!!!!!
That's the best of the list!
Playing on the roof was awesome. Flats were built next to my Dad's flat so we'd go on the outsidey bit of the window, so we'd jump across and play on the unbuilt new roof (it was one of the floors), and scaffolding.
This *wasn't* the safest thing for 7 & 10 year olds? Psh...
which was actually just some overgrown grass, and not full of snakes as were led to believe.
And getting to pay at the counter for things in shops.
the ones at playgrounds. But i'd invariably make myself sick by spinning on them too much and too fast. Fun though.
And carwashes at the petrol station when you're inside the car and you see the big cylindrical brushes whooshing across your windows! Fun times...
Throwing those dangly bathroom light pull switches against the wall and catching it again
or under bridges used to make any journey 100x more fun.
My nephew's just started getting excited by it too... awesome :o)
and licking the bowl. And your mum giving you the off cuts of pastry to play with when she made a pie...you could make mini jam pasties and things!
Raw egg! Your mum was trying to give you salmonella!
but I am now a trained assasin with a speciality in dough-based killing techniques.
A salmonellassassin? Awesome!
discussing some like it hot
Sitting on the top deck of a double decker bus. Also digging holes in the garden.
pushin the trolley in the supermarket, i remember it was around the time Schumacher started racing for Ferrari, so obviously my trolley was my red F1 car. There's also a car wash at the supermarket that was pretty cool.
on the subject of the car, my afvourite thing was when my dad opened the sun roof, i think that was race car related as well. The more i think about it the more i seemed to want to be a racing driver. Lost dreams...
how young were you when you started that?!
I would agree that you get those special feelings before your 11, but i wouldn't agree with the immediate family part. Did you have a troubled childhood by any chance? Watching the bill was great too, but its shit too. Actually, that's what we sjould be discussing, the decline in quality of the Bill, or Cop shows in general, CSI is getting worse.
its shit NOW, not 'too', it started out great.
but i dont think i get you. Who is insoector munroe?
I remember now, i only remember the faces of the Bill cast because i was very young when i watched it. Well there's a claim to fame right there. The only famous person I've ever met was Les Dennis
being allowed to stay up late enough to watch the Bill.
But I was never interested in the show.
The music would come on, and I'd run around going "the bill's on! the bill's on! the bill's onnnn!!!!!"
Then when the music finished, I'd get really bored, and go to sleep :(
was one of the first people on tv that i fancied.
about fancyin Polly Page, she ruined it for me when she had an affair with one of the men, it started to get personal. Get back to the crime fighting!
