There is a show on Animal Planet “I Shouldn’t be alive” where people get themselves in horrible situations, face death, and at the last minute manage to escape or be rescued.  In the fifties and sixties my friends and I did things which today it would seem a miracle that we made it to retirement.  Here are the things we did as kids for which:
As an infant, my parents allowed me to sleep on my stomach.
Two kids and only one bike?  No problem one kid would just ride on the handlebars.
I regularly ate peanut butter.  I even took PBJ sandwiches to school and killed no one!
I never used a seatbelt in a car before the age of 22.
I once crossed the road and only looked one way.
In the winter we bumper-hitched (grabbed a ride by skiing on your boots behind a car holding on to the bumper.)
I cut through old man McDermott’s back yard.
I rode bikes and skied without a wearing a helmet.
I Sailed small boats and water-skied without wearing a life jacket.
I took salt tablets before football practice in 98 degree heat.
We Played with BB guns.
I dove in the shallow end of a swimming pool.
I ran with scissors. 
The hill we used for Sledding in the winter was on a busy street.
I ate raw eggs.
I struck a match without closing the cover.
I Drumk and droved (hic).
I had unsafe sex….well I would have.
I ran barefoot all summer…Bees? I ain’t afraid of no stinkin bees!
I passed an 18 wheeler truck on the right.
I stood under a tree in a thunderstorm.
I Called Football Coach Corey “Norm” (Had to run laps until I dropped, but I did survive.)
I once went swimming 45 minutes after eating.
I once prepared raw chicken and did not wash my hands.
I squirt starter fluid over a lit brbq.

They should do that TV show on my life because clearly;

For more stupid shit buy "Maybe It's Just Me!" @ amazon


  1. You left out a few others I can think of, but it's your blog so I'll let them go.

  2. "I had unsafe sex, well I would have" is an absolute classic! Isn't it amazing how you made it through so many things? You should definitely have your own show devoted to you ;)


I love comments, especially some of my commenters are funny as heck!
