Loved it. As a child I also did things that drove parents nuts. One time on a dare I drank a bottle of Lysol and had to have my stomach pumped. Then I used a sheet for a cape and jumped off the garage roof and earned myself a compound fracture of my left arm.
I would have loved to have weird kids and two of my daughters got pretty close but they accepted the idea they should be normal, all of my boys bought that line. I wonder if having a mother that taught them soccer and football put them off or was it the Akido?
