    Good Cry And Rewind

    From Redditor u/Aburners

    When I was 5-6, my parents say they would find me watching Old Yeller by myself. I would sit on the ground in front of the TV silently with a single tear running down my cheek. And then when it was over, I would get up, rewind the VHS, and watch it again the same way.

    Saving A Snack For Later

    From Redditor u/kelleelah:

    I had a locket necklace that I would put Nutter Butter filling in, then lick. Why?

    Playing With Fire

    From Redditor u/vampixi:

    Whenever we had fire drills, I remember sitting there and hoping that I’d get to watch the school burst into flames.

    From Redditor u/Rocky2k4l:

    I remember every time, hoping that this was the time it was finally actually burning down, but it never was.

    Inspired By Cats

    From Redditor u/geico_fire:

    Back in the 6th grade, when I was deep in my "I love cats and everything about them" phase, I was walking behind these two girls on my way to a class. I said, "Excuse me" but they ignored me. So, I leaped up on one of the girl's backs and tried to bite her and claw at her.

    I got off with a warning from the principal. Didn't grow out of that phase until the 7th grade... I laugh and cringe every time I think about it.

    After The Rain Stops

    From Redditor u/sbc50:

    When I was younger, but definitely old enough to know better, I would eat worms straight off of the sidewalk after it rained. I’m pretty sure it started as some sort of dare with my friends, but I guess it just stuck.

    The Cat Sitting Competition

    From Redditor u/itstinksitellya:

    Grew up on a farm with a lot of barn cats. When my sister and I were young (like 7 and 5 or so), we had competitions to see who could get the most cats to sit on them all at once. One year, we had a ton of kittens and my sister successfully had 32 cats sitting on her at once.
