When I was little and everyone would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up ... One day I responded excitedly with, "I want to be a Hooker!"

Of course everyone was shocked. *Ahem* I of course was talking about TJ Hooker!! The police show that Heather Locklear was on back in the 80's.

When I was about 6 or 7 years old, for some reason, I believed that if I couldn't hear myself breathing I had obviously stopped breathing altogether and was liable to drop down dead at any moment. So I started breathing really loudly, really inhaling and exhaling deeply, so I could always hear myself. One night my dad was reading me a bedtime story and I was listening along, breathing really deeply. He asked me if I was alright - i sounded like I had asthma or something. I explained what I was doing and he put my mind to rest. I was a strange child...

When I was four years old my aunt and uncle stayed at our house while my parents went on a camping trip. One afternoon they were driving my cousin and I who were acting up in the back seat. My uncle turned his head around and told me if I didnít behave myself he was going to take me to the police station and give me the electric chair. I sat there thinking I couldnít understand why my aunt thought that was so funny. Nevertheless, for most of my early childhood I believed every police station had an electric chair

When I was about 3 years old I walked into my parents bedroom to find the bed unmade and my mom just about to start making it. I saw there were lumps toward the bottom half on the side my dad slept on. I was so scared because my dad was at work. I cried to my mom, "daddy left his legs at home." I did not believe her when she said it was pillows under the comforter until she showed me.
