Dewey,

looking at the little guy you posted in images, I guess you were pretty much a live wire at times \:\)

That cheeky grin says it all ;\)

Me and my younger brother are both like kids when we get together, trying to outwit each other with speed of jokes.

If we are together, friends have no chance, they cannot meet the speed of wit we can throw at them.

The beauty of it is, we can make fun of each other, without animosity \:\)

My older brother is a grouch, and I can guess why, because he never got to know us as kids, when he mentally abused us, :p

Yeah, I gave my parents a hard time as a tyke, always getting into things, tearing things apart to see how they worked, and asking all sorts of questions. They called me the little professor because I constantly surprised them with what I knew. :rolleyes:

I hope we can keep this thread going, as it is therapeutic, even though I did not know that when I started it.

I guess it is because I always think like a naive boy outside, and funnily enough, I am not so shy, even though deep down I am.

I guess my mind is stuck at about 14yo, because it was a time that I guessed my childhood was coming to an end, without really having one.

I guess we still have the ability to express ourselves as the boys' we were, all those years ago, and there is a way of finding him, and letting him be who he wants to be.

I too was the little professor in the family, and goofing about for attention, but guess the attention need, was a little too much.

Some time ago, I watched two boys at checkouts in a supermarket, each with their dads, one boy looked to the other, the other looked back, the first boy gave a big smile, and I thought, yes, that is what boyhood is about.

I just want to get to know life again, adn be like that, to make real friends by being spontaneous in life, and not feel superficial and unworthy.

When I was 8, I started playing baseball. Up near the baseball fields was a wetlands area that began right on the other side of the home run fence. We would go back there with old mayo jars and collect tadpoles and watch them turn into frogs.

My sister hated it though. The sole reason for keep the tadpoles was so when they became frogs we could let them go in her room. \:D

I had a pet mouse, adn it was like Jaws.

It got away, crawling through the floorboards each night, you could hear it scurrying about.

My sister went crazy, even the cat could not get him, so eventually I had to wait and get him, and eventually caught him by standing on his tail.

I guess every boy wants to keep mice, just to scare the women in his family \:\)

Can't think of any other reason, can you,

I buy hot wheels cars - only about 84p each / $1. They stand on my stone fire place next to my set of movie monsters (Frankenstein/Dracula etc). Decor is a mix of adult / child. Also have plants called peace lilies - a sign of resurrection apparently!

Next bit may trigeer, it triggers me!

When I go to court, I have been advised to wear formal clothing (shirt/tie), but feel like wearing Iron Maiden and Judas Priest t-shirts.

My compromise is to wear shirt & tie, but I am going to scan a photograph of wide eyed, innocent little me & print it onto a t-shirt to wear under the other stuff in court. I am also going to carry a hot wheels car called 'The Judge' - keeping that in my pocket!

Best wishes ...Rik

I like John's idea to all go to the confrence and just play! I am so game.

One of the most fun and funniest things I loved doing as a boy was scaring people. I used to hide, when I heard someone coming down the stairs or up the stairs and jump out and scare them! Gosh I had forgotten how I used to do that. I would be laughing my ass off. It was so funny. I had so much fun doing that. Of course I did get in trouble a couple of times but it was worth it!

My poor grandmother, I loved her a lot but my devlish side would come out with her too. She did not like balloons. She was always afraid of them popping and she did not like it when they did. So occasionally I would get one and either pop it or pretend to pop it. She did not like me much afterwards but I got a real kick out of it. I am laughing just writing these two stories.

OMG! Ice cream. I loved it as a kid and still do. Loved ice cream sandwiches, pushups, and the creamcicles. They were heavenly!

Dominic,

that is funny, the things you said are just the same as I did.

I guess it was attention seeking, or that is how my father and mom saw it.

I still do it now, when my aunt comes, she takes over TV, to watch all the soaps, but I have a spare remote, so I can turn over when not in the room.

She told me the TV is broke, but it was me all the time, she soon found out \:\)

I had absolutely no sense of danger as a kid, I dont even now, which can be a danger, as I do not sense it.

I guess my child like oddities will always be there,

ste

I really love that part of my little boy. That little devilish side. To this day I am still a little like that and want to be more so. I tend to play a lot at work (but I get my job done) and I have a lot of fun.

I just finished watching the Fantastic 4. Has anyone seen that? Gosh I love movies like that. It reminds me of being a boy and wanting to be a superheroe or have super powers! Gosh I always wanted to be Wonder Woman! I am laughing my ass of right now telling you that. That is likely more a gay thing but I had to share. My second choice was Green Lanter. He was the coolest. I though that ring was the greatest. I wanted one just like it!
