    when i was a kid my grandparents used to take me to asbury park (home of bruce springsteen ... it used to have boardwalk amusements like a smaller version of seaside heights or wildwood ... now it's just crackhouses and such ... so sad!).

    anyway, i always thought asbury park was "raspberry park" which i suppose is really cute coming from a kid, but no one in my family ever let me live it down!

        Still to this day I hate them! My mom told me once that if I didn't tie my shoes my laces would get caught in them and suck me under!! I swear to you still to this day I jump over the suck under part. I don't even realize I do it anymore. Ryan noticed it one day and was like WTF? lol

          Same here about the shoelaces!

          I remember the day in 8th grade I realized that the hispanic name "Jesus" was not "Jesus" (like Christ) but pronounced like "hey-seus" (hope that sound-it-out spelling isn't offensive). And I live in Texas so I always wondered why parents would name their kids "Jesus".

          Another 7th grade moment - a girl had "69" stickers all over her notebook and I asked her what they were and she just smiled and said it was her favorite number. I found out probably 2 years later what it was. Well now this girl is a city attorney and I laugh every time I see her name because all I can think of is those dang "69" stickers!

              Ummm, so Im still scared of the dark, still terrified of the movie ET (thank you Steven Spielberg for scarring me for life) and am not a big fan of elevators. Oh and my family still thinks its funny to tease me about my speech impediment - I used to have a really bad lisp and went to speech therapy ... yadayada yada, but now you cant notice it unless Im tanked or I say words with too many "S" sounds.

                    I like this thread-It's given me some good laughs today!

                    Once when I was like 3 or 4 we were in a restaurant and I was eating salad...apparently I really like the salad dressing because I yelled out: "This is great hairdressing!!" Lol. My mom still laughs about it.

                    Every summer I visited my grandparents in Kelowna, British Columbia and I thought that JUST their house was called Kelowna....i didn't know it was a whole city...

                    Ahhh, the simple days of being a kid!!!

                      oh man, the salad thing just reminded me of something my IDIOT ex said once when we were out to dinner!

                      waiter: "soup or salad?"
                      idiot ex: "no thanks, i don't even like 'regular' salad!"

                      HAHAHAHAHA he was thinking the guy asked if he wanted SUPER salad! the poor waiter was just so confused ... meanwhile, i had water coming out of nose, i was laughing so hard! must've laughed through the entire dinner! i'm so glad i'm rid of the IDIOT!
