This article is my entry for ate @bmjc98 's article entitled Getting to know you more challenge: When I was a kid. In this challenge, we need to state 10 random things we usually do when we were still a kid. I find it cute tho, that’s why I decided to participate and it is also a great way for me to remember my childhood days. However, my version would be a little bit weird since I really did a lot of weird things when I was a child back then.
“Happiness is laughing at childhood photos” they say.
Nonetheless, in my case, it is not that relatable since we have no camera that time to capture everything we do in our childhood moments. That’s why, instead of photos, I would prefer to say, memories.
I could say that I spent my childhood days with no regrets. I had an amazing experienced back then and sometimes, I just can’t stop myself but to wish that I could rewind those things even just for a while. I grow up in province, that’s why I am very close to nature. I can’t even stand living in a city for a long time because I will easily get sick.
By the way, I am a very curious kid back then, and maybe that is the reason why I did the weirdest or should I say gross things a child could ever do.
When I was a kid…
I always spit on my drinks
I know, it is unacceptable. Lol. Please hear me out first. As a child, I am a bit greedy back then and I don’t wanna share my foods and drinks especially if it is my favourite. Therefore, to resolve this problem of mine, I spit on my drinks and foods and let my playmates see this disgusting behaviour. In that way, they will no longer ask or beg for my food. Judge me now. I will no longer explain my side because what I did back then is just so inhuman, I know. Lol.
I used to get my mom’s bra and try it on myself.
I don’t think so that I am the only one who does this thing. Especially the girls out there, don’t you guys dare deny this. Lol. I am such an envious child back then and always wanna try and use the things my mom used.
I am a sanitary napkin monster
I really thought that what I am doing back then was just normal for a kid like me. Lol. We have a mini store before and I always hide some sanitary napkin for my usage. No, I am not having my menstrual period that time, but I act like I have. I put some ketchup in the napkin and in my rear area of the pants. And I will intentionally show it to my mother. My mother being a very hysterical person, she will immediately panic and get worried about me. Then I will just laughed at her afterwards, that of course will eventually leads me to trouble.
I intentionally put a gum in my hair
I don’t know why I did this before. Maybe because I want attention? Lol. I really don’t know why. I was eating a chewing gum that time when an idea just suddenly popped in my mind and found myself putting the gum in my hair. I tried removing it but it already got suck and messed up hair. We have no other choice but to cut my precious hair.
I created balloon mucus
Please don’t read this if you are currently eating. I don’t know why but I really consider this as my talent when I was a kid. I love making balloon through the mucus in my nose. I know, it is really gross right? Forgive my innocence. Lol.
I swallow the water I gargle
Well, I think you are doing this too. Lol. I usually do this whenever I felt to lazy to spit the water out from my mouth. It’s my mouth and saliva anyways. No big deal.
I love eating my hair
I think, this is already a mannerism back then. I can’t stand a day without biting or eating my hair.
I love eating the Santan’s nectar
If you are a Filipino, then I am sure that you are familiar with santan. We usually make crowns, necklace and other accessories through this tiny flowers and its nectar is really sweet tho.
I love biting my toe’s nails
I usually do this habit every night when I was a kid. This is my way of falling asleep. I don’t know but I just love biting my nails in my toes.
I cooked ticks
Well, when you are a kid, we always play cooking games right? In my case, nobody wants to play with me in this game because I cooked weird things. And when I say cook, it really involves fires and I used empty can as my pot. My favourite dish to cook is my dog’s fleas and ticks. I usually fry it and I love listening to its sound everytime it pops. After cooking it, I will serve it to my dog afterwards and of course, he would never eat it. Such a peaky eater.
Well, I would definitely understand if you guys will stop reading my articles because of this. Lol. Just kidding. Please forgive my gross and disgusting younger self. Just like you, I am just enjoying my childhood back then. Maybe I just did it in a very weird way. Hihi.
Hahahaha. Ang kulit nung sa garapata. Yung sa snot I also did it pero nito na lang matanda na ako. It was not really my intention pero naaliw ako na pwede pala palobohin yun uhog. I had allergic rhinitis so talagang runny nose lalo kapag sunod-sunod na yung pagsneeze ko tapos ayun nga nagballoon. Kinuhaan ko pa picture and video sa kaaliwaan ko. Hahaha. Yung sa food noon kami ng kuya ko hindi naman dura kung hindi lalawayan lang yung food. Tapos sa drinks ibblow lang para yung parang kumumulo effect. Hahaha.
