I don't just mean something that showed a blatant lack of intelligence (but you can tell about those kinds of experiences if you want. ). What is the one thing that just makes you want to kick yourself for doing? It could be a poor decision or just making a fool of yourself...whatever.
(I just did a few incredibly stupid things tonight, and I want some assurance that I am not the only one who does these things... )

Yeah fallen in love -- big mistake -- take my advice and never tell someone you're in love with them -- they'll only break your heart!

Stupid things I have done - Part 1, by Ensa Lucis.

(The following events are in no particular order, but are all 100% true)
The day before my year 6 SATS, I purchased some badly fitting roller blades and fell over and broke my arm. They bolted the bone together with metal plates and screws. I had to do the first math exam in hospital and the rest with my arm embedded in a fibre glass cast on top of a pillow.
On our Duke of Edinburgh award hike last year, we happened to stop on a bridge. I put my bag down and realised that I had put it in a rather large and unavoidably smelly pile of dog excrement. On the same hike I managed to lose our pack of bagels which I had secured most rubbishly in my roll mat. This, incidentally was the hike where Mark beat Owen about the shins with a large stick.
While on a school Latin trip to Greece earlier this year, my friend hung my nice new 70 quid jacket on a lightbulb. When we got back to the room, we wondered what the strange smokey smell was. Then we saw the gaping melted hole in my coat.
The other day whilst at work, I said to a woman "Could you sign there please sir?"
About an hour ago, after leaving work, I walked into a purple bollard for no particular reason.
Several years ago, on a windy day, I was playing in the garden, the door slammed on my finger, all but severing the tip and causing me extreme pain. The bone was sort of stuck in place and they sewed the skin back on.
In 3 consecutive years at my last school I managed to concus myself whilst playing football; on someone else's head.
While cycling an incredibly hard piece of single track on my mountain bike a few months ago, I managed to flip the bike over my head and onto my back, in a rather unpleasant, spine crunching sort of position. Needless to say; it hurt.
At last year's school sports day, I was in to run the 800 metre race, when I was pulling a backflip over a 6 foot metal bar in the car park, when I fell down mid-roll and landed on my head. Then my ribs. I went to hospital but got away with a bruised rib or some such nonsense.
Last year in an English class, I contracted Munta's disease and I couldn't speak for ages. It was scary.
A couple of years ago, I was climbing in a tree and fell on my back and winded myself.
Climbing on the small overhang at the Vertex, I decided I couldn't hang on while I clipped in - so I fell instead and took a 6 foot fall on Owen's rope.

During my time at the University, I couldn't seem to decide on a major. Journalism? Yes! Well, no. Geography? Yes!...no.Psychology? Yes!!..no. Geology? Anthropology? Environmental Planning? History? Too many choices! I should have just picked one. ANY one and went with it. Instead, I worked altogether too hard for too long for a Liberal Arts/Humanities degree that I couldn't use. I had a good time though.

Well, I have this friend who's name I won't use, let's call him Mandin, and we did this long walk. It was about 17 miles in one day. That wasn't the stupid thing. Then we got to our destination, and played capture the flag for a few hours. Again, not the stupidest thing, but not to smart. The stupid thing was waking up the next morning.

I jumped seven feet of a pine tree branch trying to be superman (I thought the snow would be soft. It was Ice ) I went off a 5 foot jump on a mountain bike, missed the seat and then ran into a log (a double whammer. As a human of the Male gender that really hurt) I walked into a womans bathroom. And last but more will indefantly come, ran into those stupid signs that people put in the middle of the walkway at the mall. I don't know if this counts but I was chasing my freind and runing from me he pushed open a dubble door. It was the kind with a bar down the middle. I laughed for ten minutes. It was great.

A number of years ago, I was in an improvisational theatre group. Break time came around, so we had fifteen minutes to go and grab snacks and generally blow off steam. A friend and I both bolted for the exit, and as we were rather hyper it quickly became a race. We were in a second story studio, and after much elbowing and jostling for position on the stairs, we sped toward the front door, which was made of plate-glass. Having arrived first, I tore through the door and, without, thinking, slammed it shut behind me. My friend reflexively put out his hands to stop this cuisinart on hinges, and SMASH!! He got away with sliced-up forearms instead of a cut throat. I guess he was lucky. I guess.

Let this be a lesson to you, always put one of those hydraulic thingies on your doors to slow them down, just in case they happen to be made of glass.

O dear! This isn't exactly the first impression I wanted to make on everyone.

I was driving home in the wee hours of the morning once and witnessed a hit and run accident (two cars, not car/pedestrian). After seeing that the victim was okay, I took off in pursuit of the car that hit him. I really only wanted his license number. I chased him through a very bad area of town. Apparently I wasn't the only person looking for him that night, because I ran across two other men who were pursuing him - and they had guns. And they were shooting at him. (Honest!) I made a quick turn into the nearest open place I saw that would have a phone so I could call the police. It was an all-night convenience store. Within a few moments the two other pursuers headed for the same store. The clerk told me to get out of sight. I found myself in the back storage room of a convenience store, hiding beneath an old desk from two men with guns. It wasn't one of my better nights...

I ate a banana muffin then went outside, threw a toy sword up into the air on to have it get stuck up in the top of a tree, and, barefooted as I was, I climbed up to the very top of the tree, got my sword, then climbed down. Then I went and played with my dog, still barefooted, only to nearly slice off one of my big toes. My mom didn't have any vehicle - my sister was at ballet and my dad at work - so an ambulance came, and I went off to the hospital. I couldn't have the toe sewn on till about midnight, however, cause of that muffin I ate. The two stupidest things I've done, therefore, were to eat a banana muffin and to run around barefooted. I've havn't done either since.

I survived a very scary bout with cancer. That same year, on a trip to Thailand, I tried smoking opium. I still cringe and ask myself:


Girl!!
