I remember back then, I love watching Power rangers, terminator, tortoise rangers etc. So I decided to test if touching naked wire will make me strong.....BAD IDEA grin

I took naked wire, went to my mum's stabilizer and put 1 end in the socket...................the shit flinged me!! I sat down for some mins, got up and told no one.....that was the day I developed Electrophobia sad ....from that day till now, I don't play around electricity..

I spoilt the umbrella given to me at a birthday party, tied it on my back, and tried to fly like superman.

I did a lot of stupid things which I won't be able to mention all but some such as

- Closing the freezer slowly to see when it will go off
- Licking plate after eating
- Making bed houses. I once burnt my elder sister's room because I took a lit candle inside with me in one of my bed houses. I would have been burnt alive that day but God save me.

I was inside the bed house eating while I placed the lit candle at the entrance of the bed house to brighten the place.

All of a sudden the candle tilted and fell exactly on the foam which started a fire. I watched in shock until the fire took a c form at the entrance. I started panicking. Behind me was a wall so I had no choice but to try the entrance. I crawled out trying to be careful but the heat struck my back making me to yell out hitting the bed subconsciously.

Being free, I ran to the kitchen to get a cup of water (according to my small mind) thinking it will quench the flame but it rather increased it.

Long story short, ceiling burnt, neighbours gathered, my sister angry, my mum furious, my dad surprised, properties destroyed (if you see the fans ehn), smoke rising up the roof, the hero (me) - standing at the front of the place I destroyed, confused, afraid and unhurt. To God be the glory cheesy

- Writing a love note to a girl in my class which was read aloud publicly. The girl is even ugly now
- Putting my legs in a pillow pretending to be a mer-prince from fiction alongside my sisters grin
- Looking up at the sky and asking God for a Ben 10 watch. Don't blame me sha, too much film
- Jumping from the chair/fence breaking my arm, ankle and one day even my neck. God dey my back sha
- Accidentally swallowing an earring while playing at a supermarket
- Crossing road over and over with my younger sister just for fun until our neighbour saw and scolded me.
- Crossing road when I was a baby due to my mother's carelessness. I wandered away while she was plaiting a customer's hair unknowingly to her, crawled to the express, crossed the road but was unhurt. Good samaritans brought me back home to my already panicking mother who was glad to see me.

Hmm, as I recall all these events, I feel very motivated and grateful, all I can say is all thanks to God. I'm really lucky and doing perfectly well today.

Had a bet with my cousin. I'd jump down from a 3 story building in return for her dinner. How I didn't die remains a mystery. I was bed ridden for 3 months, wore POP on my leg for almost a year.

Can't even remember
Re: What Was The Most Foolish Thing You Did When You Were A Kid? by pozehnani(f): 1:00pm On Feb 23
I can remember two.

The first one was when my dad took the whole family to the Lagos International Airport for sight seeing during one of the hols. (Was 5yrs old then)

While the others were busy viewing planes as they drove through the runway, I went and got my head stuck in the railings. Lol.. it wasn't iuntil I cried for help that everyone surrounded me and tried to pull me out. I spoiled the fun that day because we zoomed off immediately I was rescued.


Second one was during our adventurous years.
So one older girl shook down a pawpaw and the pawpaw fell into the fence of a horse stable. (In a Polo club). The girl said since I'm small, I should climb the fence and get the pawpaw... I climbed but Immediately I fell over the fence, I realized it was directly into a horse stable. Waaat?? And those horses were staring at me menancingly. Then I began to cry while the others at the other side of the fence we're panicking and thinking of how to get me out.

I tried so hard with much struggles and my all to climb out of the stable with the help of the others. With scratches on my knees. Even pawpaw, I nor see pickgrin.....

i will never forget the eyes of those horses.

Corinthians 13:11


When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

Not actually me, not even as a kid.... The most foolish thing Nigerians did was voting and returning the lifeless one as Head of State.

firstly was when a friend of mine in primary-2 told me a story that people use medicine to disappear and reappear. As little as I was, about 6-7 years then, I went home took some paracetamol tablets and emptied them in my pocket. I wanted to appear in school without walking. Whenever I remember I laugh.

I picked up some enveloped money when I was about 5, on my way to school. I opened the envelope and found a lot of money inside. I saw roughly 3k as at 1999. That was massive, you know? Immediately I saw one bros, I ran to him because I was scared of such amount, I told him, sir did you lose any money? The man immediately said yes, took the envelope and left. He even offered me #50 which I didn't accept. I was very cultured and nice while growing up. I think I've lost 45% and counting.

I wrote a love letter to my Headmaster's daughter (we were in the same class) and she went ahead to show her dad.

What happened after that, my mouth no fit yarn finish...

But if LOVE is a crime, I'm ready to receive hundreds of cane.. Lol

That was then though, eyes don open now.

I can't remember one because everything I did as a kid was foolish, I guess that's why I am still foolish.
