My mother was a bit of an insomniac and even when she did sleep a pin drop would instantly wake her up. There was never any sneaking out for me. Not that I was cool enough to have somewhere to go anyway.

I was 16 with a friend sleeping overnight. Neither of us was tired and were bored beyond words. With my parents asleep for more than an hour, we made our escape onto the lower porch roof and down to the grass. We had no plan other than to see what people did at that time of the night. We headed toward downtown, met very little traffic until a couple older teens headed our way; their body language and facial expressions were screaming; FIGHT. Right at that moment it sucked to be me. My weight was at 128, never pumped iron, wouldn't know a sit-up from a sit-in, and I think that's what saved me. The one bulky guy went after my bulky buddy while the second toughie held a nut pick to my upper chest. Thirty seconds into the fight a police cruiser rolled up, told them to get lost but for us to get in the patrol car. I had to give them my parents' number while the cop drove in the direction of my street... you know the rest. That was the last time I went full on stupid.

Wow what a story, I have had a similar experience once too. It was on new years eve and I was with a friend of mine, we were 19 I think. Usually in that time we have quite the fireworks in the city center so we went, on our way back a group of 5-6 drunk kids our age started shouting at us, you could smell the cheap champagne that they gave for free at the center a mile away from them. My friend ran, I tried too but I was slow plus I was afraid not to slip on ice or something since being on the ground I thought they'd kick the hell out of me. One of them caught up and started hitting my face from behind, he hit like a ****, didn't even bloody my lip, but I knew that if I didnt give them something they'd gang up on me so I gave them the two bucks in my pocket. A bit later my friend came back with his dad but the drunks were somewhere else by then.

Boring is a good thing - a very, very good thing - I've made a practice of that ever since :)

Your mom's insomnia may have saved your life :) At that time of the night, all kinds of creeps come out of the woodwork - little did I know that, then, though :(

Yeah, I did a couple of times and it was to late night party with some friends. My Father hated all my friends and that was about the only way to get out and party with them!

That might've been me if I had other types of friends but they and I were low key - willing to look and listen but not quite ready to test the water... not at 16 :)

Didn't sneak out, but threw a hellacious party or two when they were out of town on a couple of occasions.

I was 16-18 years old.

Fast forward to just 3-4 years later and you couldn't pay me to attend a party of any kind, much less throw one.

I wasn't much for parties, ever - too much noise, breakage, and mess for me - and I wasn't into alcohol at that age. The biggest deterrent, though, would've been my dad finding out... I would've been in shackles till I was 80.

Thanks for giving me some of your time, and for sharing a bit of your dark past, lol :)

I did, several times because of friends mostly but also because there was this girl I was getting along quite well. We were often a group of friends, that's how we met, we became pretty close. Sometimes she called me outside at midnight, sneaking out was no problem because my grandparents were long asleep by then. Those were the good days, we often spent our time hugging on some bench or sidewalk, few times she even let me play with her bra and stuff, I hadn't tried unhooking one back then.

Aahhh... a girl calling out to a guy at midnight sounds romantic, promising :D You lucky, lucky man. And thank god it was at a time when your grandparents were long asleep, leaving you many hours of not being discovered - bwahaha :P

Interesting fact, my grandpa somehow found out because one day he asked "Who was that girl with you in front of the house?" probably because of his prostate was ringing during night.

Probably wasn't a good idea to fiddle around with her in front of my own home. My grandparent's house is pretty big, the house itself is on the 2nd and 3rd floor while the 1st is a workshop, he probably saw us from the balcony.

And yeah this girl was a bit crazy and tomboyish, she once bit my head, I didn't even know it was possible, perhaps it was an excuse to kiss it later who knows. Somehow that's the type I fall for despite claiming to prefer the good girls.

No need my parents let me do whatever I wanted, so long as my gradea were good. Plus I was shy and knew few people when I was young. At 18 I started living away from home, and spent time with really wild people, so I learned to be more outgoing.

Even if I did quietly get out that way, climbing back in would be a bit difficult. There would be no reason to sneak out anyway, nothing interesting ever happens around here anyway. At least not for me.

Well, the one time I tried it, that could've landed me in the hospital - it definitely landed me in trouble with my dad. I wouldn't advise a lone person doing it, just in case you run across some questionable people.

I'd rather have you here than on the street by yourself. (wink)

All of the questionable people I've seen around here seem too weak to harm me, I've got lightning quick reflexes and I'm capable of defending myself. I wouldn't go out without taking some sort of weapon with me in case I had to use it. I was actually attacked by two guys when I was alone once at night during summer without anything to defend myself other than my own body, they came running at me but I punched one in the gut, then kicked the other in the shin. After that I grabbed both of their necks, squeezed a bit, grabbed their faces and slammed em down and kicked em while they were down. When they got up they ran. They were lucky I decided not to report them to authorities. I should have beat them up worse to truly leave my mark on them.

I did that a few times, yes. I only recall one of those times distinctly...meeting a girl I knew from school, and us walking through a very dark field and forest with a knife. She brought the knife I think, it being our protection against, well, whatever.
I don't even remember who we were meeting. Why? Because it was thrilling, I suppose. I went through quite a rebellious stage, when I was a teenager.

Isn't it funny how getting out of the house was a big deal, looking back how insignificant it was to your real life eh? Just like all the silly things they drill into your head while in school- I mean about behaving or it will tarnish your permanent record. Think any school still has your record with which to tarnish your life (beye)
