My excellent peripheral vision allowed me to cheat at hearing tests and avoid the added stigma of people knowing I am pretty much deaf in my left ear and my right ear does not work too well....

notice operators hand move, declare I can hear a sound

*sigh

My mother threatened to put me on medication once when she was mad at me when I was 14 or 15.

I once put a butterknife to my brother's throat.

Several times I reacted to stuff my mother said with anger and my mother flinched like I was going to hit her. But I never did.

Everytime my parent's punished me I ripped the carpeting from the floor, and soon the downstairs had none.

I probably spent 1,000$ on pokemon cards in all as a kid.

I used to eat ants. I stopped when one bit my tongue.

I used to love digging in my backyard until I uncovered a giant, hideous spider.

I would dig in my backyard and collect all the insects I found in a bucket. Then I'd stomp on them all.

I tried to dig to China once. The hole only got 5 feet deep before I hit a rock.

When I was 8 years old, in some public event the nuns asked for one girl of each grade to sing a song. When it was my grade's turn, I asked the teacher to be the one to go up, and she made me go with another girl because she said I couldn't sing (she hadn't heard me before). I never tried to sing again until I moved to another school.

When I was in elementary school, another girl idolized me and tried to copy everything I liked and the way I did my hair. We were friends, but I secretly hated her.
