Tuesdays Question? : What's Your Craziest Teenage Experience Or Memory?

Hello and welcome to another Tuesday’s Question! If this is the first time you’ve read Tuesday’s Question you don’t know what I’m talking about, and if you’re returning to Tuesday’s Question, thank you for coming back!

Tuesday’s Question is my way of connecting with my readers and sharing a little link love every week. If you’re a reader and not a blogger you will be a part of tomorrows post, and if you’re a blogger the post will also include a link back to your blog!

I want to make a connection and express my appreciation for your friendship by passing some link love every week. Plus, I think it's solid that I learn something knew about you with each question, and hopefully you learn something new too, about me and each other.


I’m sorry I’m running behind again today and posting mid-morning instead of 6; 00 AM. I will do better, I’ve just been a little rubber fingered lately, and I don’t really know why. What is rubber fingered? I do not know I just made it up, but I bet you know what I mean. Anyway, I cannot wait to read your answers to this week’s question. I have a feeling I will be laughing all day, or if your experience is anything like mine, I may be petrified or both…

What's Your Craziest Teenage Experience?

My teenage crowd and I loved to play in our cars while driving down the road, or better yet, scare the living daylights out of our passengers! We did this by designating a driver to let go of the wheel, and slide to the passenger's side of the car, leaving the vehicle coasting down the highway, at a top speed of sixty miles an hour without a driver! Then, whoever sat directly behind the driver, would jump from the back seat to the front, and resume control of the car! This is the craziest memory I have or maybe the scariest of my teenage life, and it gives me chills when I think of it! Can you believe any of us lived through that experience?

That is the craziest memory I have although not my favorite. My favorite, is the one I wrote a post on, but I guess I was a young adult when the bats latched onto my head.

I was in such a hurry this morning that is the memory that popped in my head, which one pops into yours?

Haha, I was 14 when I jumped down from a rock cave for abseiling (of course, I was attached to a rope!!!!!!) Needless to say my scream caused some hearing casualties.

Have been missing you at Eatyourmaths for a while... ;p

Blog Author Ann Clemmons said...

Hey Mel, I wrote you back. I hope everything is o.k. with you~

Thanks for stopping by. I'm curious. :)

Winston, I thought of you when I wrote this question. Lol! Hearing casualties, huh? (Laughing) I would have been scared to death! I knew this question was going to be good. Because we think we're invincible when we're teenagers! Laugh. Thanks for sharing and I'll be sure to stop by Eat Your Maths Soon and more often~

Well, I didn't get out much living on a farm, but I did sneak out often. I would guess the craziest thing my girlfriend and I did is steal her mothers car and went joy-riding. Well, sure enough we ran into a cop. We were parked outside a small store and of course I was driving. Well, the cop drives by slowly and looks at the both of us and instead of going the opposite direction I pulled onto the road behind him. He didn't pay any attention to us after that. Scared us half to death it did. :)

Blog Author Ann Clemmons said...

Sandee, It sounds like it's probably good that you didn't get out much! LOL! Your parents had their hands full enough as it was! I laughed when I read, "of course I was driving" I could see the two of you in minds eye! I can't believe you pulled in behind him! (laughing) Great answer Sandee, as usual! Thank you! :))

I hope you're having a good day.

insanity-suits-me (Dawn) said...

Well Ann.... it involved a car... a boy... a big hill... a little alcohol... and a lot of stupidity. That's all I'm saying! LOL

Blog Author Ann Clemmons said...

Insanity, (Laughing) I'm going to have to get that out of you somehow! You are too much! Great comment Dawn!

Thanks~

Ann

Misty Dawn said...

I just discovered your blog. I've already subscribed to it, because I think I'm gonna like it here!

Patois said...

Craziest? Way too many qualify. I'll tell of one. Driving down back roads, speeding, with a bunch of teens in the car, no one drunk -- how rare that was -- and turning off the lights. Pitch black, hurtling through space, screaming. Oh, yeah, gives me spine chills fearing my offspring will attempt something as crazy/stupid/moronic.

Blog Author Ann Clemmons said...

Misty Dawn, I just went and checked yours out and love it too! What an original blog title, in addition to adorable Border Collie! :))

Blog Author Ann Clemmons said...

Patois, Laughing, way to many to qualify huh? I know what you mean about your offspring too! We can only hope that children get smarter with each generation.

As afore mentioned to Winston, (Mr.Fong) I knew this question would be good, since teenagers think themselves invincible. Thanks for a great answer!

I've got ironic, I've got melancholy, I've got scary and I've got angsty, but nothing comes to mind for crazy.

Which is unfortunately, because I might have shared crazy. ;-)

mr fong said...

Haha, this is feeling like a Great Place in the Sun. You should change your title, lol!

Writing an underground Newspaper against the vice-principal's principles. Or rather lack there of. I used school paper and mimeograph machine to print it on. Man was VP peeved and no one narced. I know my journalism teacher knew who wrote them. It was fun plus I was 17 and thought I was fighting for justice in our high school community. Hehe.

Blog Author Ann Clemmons said...

Janice, I love it! I wish I would have thought of that! I can't believe no one said anything. What a great group of friends. Vice principals were always creeps. It's as if being a jerk is a job requirement. Thanks for the great comment~ :)

Blog Author Ann Clemmons said...

Dan, Laughing! I'm so sorry I just saw your comment! Please forgive me me!? You may have shared crazy, huh? Laughing~ Thanks for coming by~

Me and five friends got busted by a cop while we were skinny dipping in the local public swimming pool at 2 in the morning.

He put that big cop car searchlight on us ... felt like we had suddenly become part of some HOllywood premiere, except, of course that we were naked and wet and scared ... and told us we didn't need to bother grabbing our clothes because we were going to jail dressed the way we were, meaning with nothing on.

We panicked, grabbed our clothes, jumped the fence and started running down the neighborhood street, flinging water from our bodies everywhere as we went.

We were laughing probably because the whole thing was suddenly so absurd, the cop car was squealing around the corner and he was yelling at us with that bullhorn in his car, dogs were barking, lights were going on in the houses on the street ... BUT in the end (no pun intended) we leaped fences and got away.

Woo hoo!

Blog Author Ann Clemmons said...

Bob, Laughing. I bet they wanted to kill you! (Laughing) You were probably spared because there were five of you! But I guess that still didn't save you from the embarrassment. Too funny Bob, as usual! Thanks for the comment~

Christy said...

Fun as always around here Ann!

At the time it didn't seem crazy but we used to go down the the beach and start bonfires using the broken down fence. Sometimes we'd go skinny dipping.

Of course being the practical teenager I was I'd tie my underwear to my ankles so I wouldn't have to get in or out of the water naked, lol.

One day we realized we had no more fence left to burn. We were a crazy group. Where the heck were our parents?

Blog Author Ann Clemmons said...

Christy, So you were the smartest one in the crowd then too, huh? That sounds like so much fun! Couldn't you go back after the fence was gone? Oh, I guess the bonfires helped you to see, huh? Duh! I tried holding my bathing suit in my hand while skinning dipping in the surf once. Can you guess what happened? Laugh.

Thanks Batman, you're the best!

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'


F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"
