When I was a kid I…
… answered “a dog” when my mother asked if I wanted a brother or a sister.
… tripped on myself because I was thinking about rollerskating and my legs started making the sideways movement while walking. This happened more than once. I have never roller-skated in my life.
… since I didn’t get the dog, I used a cloth tape measure as a collar for an invisible dog. And walked around the house with it.
…stapled my hand whilst trying to fix the stapler. Twice. In a row. The first staple wasn’t painful enough to learn the lesson.
