JaxGame: Childhood Stories

In honor of Madre's birthday week, I thought it would be fun to play a little game.
Who doesn't love a Jax game?  I know you all do, so shush!!

Have you ever been sitting around in a group setting amongst your closest friends and family when someone decides to open their big, fat mouths?  Out comes one of those childhood stories that you wished stayed in the vault with a triple lock.
You see where I'm going here?  You might want to get that vaults key...

For this game, let's all share one of our infamously embarrassing childhood stories.
Aim for a story that would make you cringe while trying to yell a quick deterrent from the climax.
Come on guys, make it juicy!!!
I'll start.

When Jax was about 11 years old, she decided that she wanted to be British.  
She would drink English breakfast tea, rock a knock off Burberry scarf, and obsess over scones.
The worst part of this "phase" was the fake British accent she would speak in for well over a year.  Imagine this large Italian family with a little girl talking in an English accent.  The Viking decided it was best to ignore the "phase" and let it fade out naturally.  
I want to know how my parents kept a straight face when I answered them in British!

What's your embarrassing childhood story?

**************************************
The lovely lady who designed my entire webpage has decided to host R&W as blog of the week!
Her name is Jenn and she's totally awesome!  If you're looking for a blog makeover, give her a shout.
Jenn asked me a few simple questions which I was more than happy to answer.
I mean, you all know I love a good excuse to yap...

  1. Childhood embarassing stories, if only I had dollar for each story. I used to say that convicts and thieves fly up to clouds and pierce hole in clouds and that is how earthlings get rain. Why thieves, why they get flying skill or from there I don't know. ;(

    2. Lol,good one Dez.
      Pat I really need to see you mooning why are you so much obsessed with that?

      Delete
    3. LOL The Viking loves the Brittish accent story. Poor guy must have been mortified when he took me out and I started yapping like an Englishman. LOL!!!!

      So you were a nudist? Oh my!! Does Smurf tunes still make you want to strip? hahahahahaha

      @Dez...The cat and his bum! I have to disagree w/ you on that one, Dez! I'm not a very big fan of a hairy bum!

      Delete
    4. LMAO well at least he thinks it is quite funny now and he can use it as a story about you haha

      hahahaha yes I was pretty much a nudist. I don't know, I haven't heard smurf tunes in a while. Maybe I should see what happens hahaha

      The cat has no hairy bum, Pat on the other hand we don't know, as looking in the mirror is a strain haha

      Delete
    5. LOL!!! He always uses that story. Sigh... It's just weird!

      LOL Yes, please play the smurf tunes and update us all on the results. hahaha

  3. When I was a teen I told my Dad I was going to one girl's house but I actually went to another girl's house who he didn't like. He found me because my 10 speed bike was in front of her house. He made me walk my bike home while he literally kicked my ass up the street saying, "Don't you EVER lie to me again". Guess what, I never lied to him again. WHEW, back in the day no one thought twice about a Dad kickin' his kid's ass. He would be locked up today!!!!

    1. Oh my! That's what happens when you lie to your father ;) Actually, that's one thing my parents did do. Brother and I were certainly reprimanded when we did something wrong. I'm sure not as hard as your generation, but we were disciplined!

  6. Have to agree with Patt, I checked out her blog but I didn't see the interview. Maybe she hasn't uploaded it though, I'll check back later.

    As for embarrassing stories hmm... there was one time back in 2nd - 3rd grade me and this girl I had a crush on were assigned to color in the drawing for our classroom (Each classroom had their own). So we were outside the class together working on it and of course I tried to make her laugh/impress her by kind of messing up the drawing and she was laughing really hard so I kept doing it. The picture ended up being the worst looking one in the entire school and everyone in our class was mad at us LOL.

  8. I have an appreciation for food. My first word was "light" and my second was "hungry". I was a hungry zombie when I woke up in the mornings, and climbing out of bed I would start moaning, "huuuunnnnnnnnggggrrrryyyyyyyy.... hhhhhuuuuunnnnngggggrrrryyyyyy......." repeatedly until I made it to the dining room. This was a very long and drawn out process.

    It wasn't embarrassing at the time - but it's embarrassingly fun to tell the story now.

    1. LMAO!!!!!! Oh, that's great!!! I can only imagine you waking up all zombie like saying that. Great story :)

    1. Your entire childhood? Oh my!! Must make for some great family conversation ;)

  11. Growing up I had really long legs and I was skinny as hell, so I had to wear high-waters. Like, HAD to. They were the only pants that fit me. So for the first 10 years of my life I looked like a huge dork. Since then I only look a little bit like a dork. Whew, so much better.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. LOL I just laughed picturing that!! Too funny. At least you HAD to wear them. It's a great excuse ;) hahahaha

      Delete
  12. Ahhh! My apologies! You all are WAY more with it than I am; its too early in the morning for me still. Ha!

  13. My dad seems to over-exaggerate stories about me when I was young. It doesn't help that the stories manifests to something more grand everytime he tells it. For example, he loves to tell the story of carry me through a tour in a dark cavern in northern Mexico. Everytime he tells the story, he adds an extra 15 minutes to the length he endured carry me, and everytime he tells the story, he adds an extra year to my age. So, recently, he told this story: "When Gabe was ten, we toured the Garcias Caverns in Monterrey, Mexico. I carried him in the dark for three hours." I wasn't ten. I was five. Maybe six. And I doubt the tour lasted longer than an hour.

    1. LOL Got to love when parents exaggerate their stories! I think that's a universal thing ;) Were you a 200 pound 10 year old too? That would add some juice to that story! hahahaha

      Delete
  14. I love that you wanted to be English when you are little. I can totally picture it and it is funny. I was born without the thing that causes embarrassment, so I honestly don't have any of these stories.

    In seventh grade I owned a pair of MC Hammer pants. I so didn't care how ugly they were. In fact, I'm pretty sure I loved them BECAUSE they were so hideous.

    1. LOL It was funny b/c it was an all Italian family with guido NY accents. Then I would open my mouth. It was like, wtf? LOL I want to knw how my parents kept a straight face and WHY I would do such a thing. lol

      Love the MC Hammer pants story! Too funny ;)

  15. I love your interview, Jax =)

    Maybe it's a girl thing, my son's ex-girlfriend spoke in an English accent at random. It was pretty bizarre and really annoying. I'm glad she's an ex LOL

    I can't think of anything really embarrassing because I'm so cool and all...except one time when we went to the San Antonio River Walk, I walked onto the stage and began singing and dancing like I owned the place. lol

    1. Thanks for checking it out, Elsie!

      Did she really??? OMG, I just LAUGHED at that so loud!! hahahaha Bizarre and annoying I can get lol

      LOL You wanted to put on a show! Can't blame you. That sounds like an awesome story!!

  16. I was spending the night with a friend one Saturday night, and we discovered that late at night, some of the movie channels showed things that they didn't normally show during the day. There we were at about 1:00AM giggling so loudly that we woke up his dad, who was a deacon at our church. So, his dad went on to make us "repent" in front of the whole congregation the next morning! It was the most embarrassed I can ever remember being as a young child.

    1. Oh wow...you had to repent? Talk about serious punishment!! Well, I bet you never did that again. lol! Thanks for playing :D

  18. I am in your spam too?
    I second Dez's comment and I demand to see Pat's ass. Why is he so obessed with that? Can you ask him to moon for us?

    And that interview was pretty good and you are sure magazine advice column material. We can all attest to that. And what you have achieved in a year is pretty amazing. All the best for professional blogger job.

    1. You were in my spam! Doesn't blogger know that you're Cap and certainly not spam!?

      Pat...will you moon for us!!!! The audience is demanding a picture of your bare bum! Besides, it may increase the number of hits on my page. LOL

      Thanks, girl! Glad that you enjoyed the interview. I had fun doing it :)

  21. When i was twelve i was really angered at my brother, he was a big sugar person. And had it in it his tea lot, so i replaced the whole bag with salt. My mothers freinds came over and i forgot, they had tea and one of them threw up, all over the carpet. I tried to dispose of the evidence down the loo and was caught mid act. The punishment was severe.

    1. LOL I could only imagine. That doesn't sound like a happy ending either!! Bet it led to many great stories now though ;) hahaha

      Why did she puke? Talk about sensitive gut!! hahahaha

    2. Ha, she had something like four sugars in her tea, so that was four teaspoons of salt. Anyway i regret nothing.

  22. Well done on your interview Jax. I left a comment over there for you.

    When I was 14 I was asked to do a speech in a massive hall in front of lots of people. I went on stage, looked around at all the faces string at me. I froze! I forgot what I had to say. All I did was stare back. It was so embarrassing. At the moment all I wanted to do was disappear. After a couple of minutes of horrible silence, I walked off the stage.

  23. Oh gosh! I have so many. I heard olive oil was great for the hair and doused mine with it. Talk about hell trying to get out and ewwww the smell. LOL And I plucked my eyebrows halfway off. HAHAHAHA
