What childhood memory perfectly encompasses you?\u00a0A funny Twitter conversation took place recently about our most iconic\u00a0childhood memories! These are the most absurd memories that people shared in an online discussion.\r\nFor myself, I can remember hiding under the bed as my family prepared to leave for a vacation. I was just trying to be silly, but the joke turned sour when I fell asleep under the bed and gave my parents a scare. This led to my entire family joining in on an upbeat and frantic game of hide and seek! They eventually found me. My family loves telling this story and I think it showcases my quirky personality.\r\nLet's begin by checking out the original post! Kathryn B proposed the prompt and we fell in love with some of the responses.\r\n\r\n\r\nWhat is your most on brand story from your childhood?\r\n\u2014 Kathryn Brightbill (@KEBrightbill) February 20, 2019\r\n\r\nAbsurd Memories: Top Responses\r\n\r\nI was \u201clost\u201d in JCPenney when I was 3 years old and they shut the store down and everyone including staff searched for me for like 10 minutes and finally my sister found me standing next to a kid mannequin pretending to be another mannequin.\r\n\u2014 Colin\u2019s Dad (@MRudolphComedy) February 20, 2019\r\n\r\n\r\nWe can all agree that something as absurd as this childhood memory has happened to us. For instance, I can personally remember sitting in the middle of clothing racks at the department store and waiting until I heard my mother calling my name before coming out. Then I would pretend to have been around the corner the entire time. Stores always had such great hiding places and I had a knack for finding them, perhaps an obsession.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nin middle school I used to have private awards ceremonies for the books I had read that year, like an Oscars for books, and would make up speeches for all the characters to say.\r\n\u2014 the library haunter \ud83e\udd89\ud83c\udf83 (@SketchesbyBoze) February 21, 2019\r\n\r\n\r\nSomeone followed up by asking who gave the most memorable speech, to which 'the library haunter' replied: "I remember Hemingway, accepting his award for The Old Man and the Sea, plugging the *next book he had written. (I was such a dork omg)."\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nIn first grade I made a family newspaper on my dad\u2019s old typewriter at his office \ud83d\ude02. It also had a pretty small circulation but the audience was really into it\r\n\u2014 Kelsey (@butalsokelseylu) February 22, 2019\r\n\r\n\r\nMade a card catalog and labeled all my books on my shelf using the Dewey Decimal system when I was 10. At 43, I'm helping build libraries in Cambodia.\r\n\u2014 MarlaTaviano (@marlataviano) February 20, 2019\r\n\r\n\r\nApparently, this story struck a common nerve, as many other people had similar absurd childhood memories: "I did that, too! I played librarian and made my sister check out books. I didn't charge her late fees, though. God knows I tortured her enough."\r\nContinue to see more Outlandish Memories!\r\n\r\nMost Outrageous & Absurd Memories From Childhood\r\nWe're Going To School\r\n\r\nWinning a contest in a class of how many tiles were in the principal's office. I was dead on after spending so much time there.\r\n\u2014 t carey (@sunbro_4life) February 20, 2019\r\n\r\n\r\nIt seems that 't carey' made the best out of a bad situation. I don't recall ever getting sent to the principal's office thank goodness! Did you ever get sent there?\r\n\r\nI received my first \u201clove letter\u201d in second grade. I corrected the spelling and grammar in red ink and returned to sender.\r\n\u2014 RefugeesAreHumans (@daumling1) February 20, 2019\r\n\r\n\r\nOh the memories of trying to impress our crushes, and minimize the turmoils of young love. The thrills of passing notes in school was certainly a highlight for me. It was the best form of texting.\r\n\r\nput my hand up when teacher asked 'who is it has a dental appointment this afternoon' (I hadn't). Left school at noon, walked 2 miles home on my own, knocked on front door, told my horrified mum about my great prank, she went nuts. I was 6.\r\n\u2014 agadon't (@LeonardEctric1) February 20, 2019\r\n\r\n\r\n'Agadon't' goes on to say that, "a wooden spoon was her (mom) weapon of choice." Therefore, the prank may have been humorous, but not entirely worth the risk. It goes to show you that not all great pranks may be recognized as so.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nI wrote an expose for my HS newspaper re: janitors repeatedly emptying recycling bins into the trash dumpster. Principal refused to allow it to be printed. So I sent the article to the city paper instead. Editor told HS principal: if you won\u2019t publish, I will. Principal caved.\r\n\u2014 Charissa McAfee (@CharissaMcAfee) February 20, 2019\r\n\r\n\r\nLet's just hope that Charissa grew up to be a journalist, as I think she had the bug early.\r\nNo Relationship Quite Like Parent and Child\r\nAny relationship between a parent and their child is extremely complex with many levels. A parent must try to keep an authoritative relationship with boundaries and rules. However, when that parent steals jokes from the child, perhaps the child has a reason to argue!\r\n\r\nI heard my mother make a joke at the club that I had created. I marched up to her and said through gritted teeth, "That was my joke."\r\nI was six.\r\n\r\n\u2014 Quinn Cummings (@quinncy) February 21, 2019\r\n\r\n\r\nThe innovation of some of these children's stories is wonderful.\r\nAt 6 yo I took the egg beater apart and made it go faster. My mother realized she had a real problem on her hands.\r\n\u2014 Elizabeth (@busybelle2011) February 20, 2019\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAs a child with six other siblings, I can absolutely sympathize with this final and hysterical memory! In addition, it even brings back some similar repressed memories that I may be trying to forget!\r\n\r\nI came home from camp to find my family had gotten a portrait taken, printed, and framed all while I was gone for 2 weeks. pic.twitter.com\/bLQ3M0FMtI\r\n\u2014 Margaret Bienert (@margaretbienert) February 23, 2019\r\n\r\nTo sum up, these were the most absurd memories from some lovely strangers' childhoods, and we are thankful the Twitter users who decided to share. In conclusion, please add any personal memories you think personifies your childhood!
