my brother used to pick his nose when he was little. one time my dad caught him and told him that he shouldn't do it because he could scratch his brain.
i've never seen him pick his nose again.

My brother use to tell me that my parents bought me at the blue light special at K Mart. I didn't like going to K Mart cause I always thought my mom was going to return me.

When I was very young -- before kindergarten -- I was already very good at reading and spelling. Like other kids here, I asked my parents how to spell the letters of the alphabet. How do you spell A? How do you spell B? etc.

I accepted their answer that letters were not things that you spell because they're the things that are used FOR spelling. I decided I would try to spell the letters anyways. I remember writing them down: Ay, Bee, See, Dee, and so on.

See was more properly spelled Cee, because I thought the word should be spelled with the letter that it means. I was particularly proud of Aitch, even though it has the H at the end rather than beginning with H. I was quite baffled by Kew (Kyoo? Cue?) because I couldn't get a Q into it. If I'd known the word Queue at the time I might have considered the project more of a success.

That box office numbers were not about money. If I heard, "The new Star Wars grossed over 10 million this weekend." I thought that 10 million people were grossed out when they saw it.

My mom's last name starts with an N, but because of her Southern drawl, folks hearing her spell it out sometimes think that N is an M. So to clear up confusion, my mom always started spelling her name by saying "N as in Nancy..." Only, I was confused, and decided that my mom's middle name was really Enasinantsy. I named my teddy bear Enasinantsy after my mom, too.

I used to believe the car always knew where you were going, and always gave you directions on where to turn, by the dash lights. Now...... they actually do....

My little cousin's birthday is December the 25th. Her school had a little celebration for all the kids in her class that were born from July to December. Then, she had a little party with her closest friends in her school. Finally the 25th she had a little party with all the family. Confused she asked her mom on the 25th how much she was turning. Her mom answered she was turning 5. She replied:
"How many times do I have to turn five?"
