I would like to add a few from my own childhood: 23: do not listen to your brother when he dares you to call 911 on the big red phone in the bank where your mother works. 24: Do not shake up a soda really well and then open it. 25; do not do 24 in the car, near your mom, or pointing at your own face. 26: Have a really good hiding spot if you are going to tell embrassing stories about your brother to his prom date. (She loved it, though) 27: run to that hiding spot when your brother isn't looking so he can't follow you. 28: Do not change the button controls on your brother's video game. (Your giggling will give you away) 29: do not put rubber snakes in your brother's shoes. 30: do not stick lollapops to the underside of your brother's pillow. 31: do not sing Smash Mouth at 12:00 at night, at full volume. (Parents have a way of coming home early from overnight trips.) 32: Do not attempt to shave the cat. 33: Do not throw stones at geese. (They attacked!) 34: Even at 18 months, do not give your brother black eyes. (Your mother will not be impressed, even 16 years later.) 35: Do not paint the dog's nails green. 36: or pink, purple, navy blue, sky blue, sliver, black, red, or any of these colors together. 37: do not draw on the walls. 38: do not dial random numbers on the phone. 39: do not lock wild animals in your brother's room. that's it. i hope that added a few that i thought it was missing. enjoy!
I have experienced most of these and they are all so true
dont ever "ice skate" on the kitchen floor in socks, ever! you will fall and really hurt yourself. learnt from experience. or run around with a box on your head-i ran into the corner of a table and gave myself a black eye ( i was about 4-5)
i can definetly attest to number 3. i still have the scars on my head to prove it!
brandon if u read the title it says LESSONS I LEARNED AS A (CHILD) which actually means she did this when she was a CHILD...get it
