I wanted to prove I was as brave and cool as my brother and his friends who were jumping from our garage roof onto a mattress. I climbed up there and froze .... I had to stay up there for a couple of hours until my grandpa came home and carried me down.
I say good on you for having the foresight to stay on that roof! My luck, I'd be the one person who failed to hit the mattress ;)
And I'd live through it too ;)
That's why I could never go sky-diving. I'm not afraid of the parachute failing, falling and dying. I'm afraid of the parachute failing, falling and living.
Smoked my first cigarette...
Smoked one of the old man's cigars! What a mistake that was!
I did not do anything for the sake of fitting in as a child. I have always been and will always only be me.
