Time for a Meme: I am still a kid.

Elfninosmom over at Adventures In Frickintardistan tagged me with the following meme:

List 5 things you still do, that you did when you were a baby/little kid.

Hmmm. That’s a tough one in part because I don’t remember a whole lot of my days as a baby or little kid. You’d probably be better off asking my mother about that, but here’s the best I could come up with:

  1. I still like to fly kites. I don’t do it as often as I’d like and the last kite I tried to fly, a wicked cool pirate ship, never got off the ground, but every now and then I’ll haul out a kite and try to give myself a heart attack running around with it. It’s one of the few forms of exercise I get these days.
  2. I still collect toys. Again not as much as I did when I was a kid, but I still have a few around including some figures from Doctor Who such as the Tenth Doctor (gift from Hairboy), sonic screwdriver flashlight and ink pens, and a remote controlled Dalek.
  3. I still hate spinach. ‘Nuf said.
  4. I still like to write short stories. The creativity doesn’t flow as often as it used to, but these days the comprehensibility of the stories is greatly improved. There’s at least two short stories buried in the archives. I’m kicking around some ideas for a new one.
  5. I still sing along with the radio in the car. Loudly and with enthusiasm. Though I tend to tone it down when the wife and kid are in the car so as to spare them my lack of singing ability. It’s one of the simple things in life that makes me happy. As a kid I’d sing along with the radio all the time which occasionally got on my poor Dad’s nerves.

That’s the best I can come up with at the moment. I’m supposed to tag five other people, but I’m much like ***Dave in that I’ll leave it up to you guys if you want to participate. Chime in on your own blog or leave your list here in the comments if you’re so inclined.

    2.) Ditto carnival rides—the more times you’re upside down, the better.

    3.) Liver is still an abomination.

    4.) I still refuse to make the bed.

    5.) Launching myself airborne to belly-flop on my own bed still has a forbidden, gonna-get-yelled-at-with-my-middle-name-and everything feeling to it.  (Bonus points if husband is already on it, reading a book and unaware that I’m there until he hears the fateful cry of “Wheeeeee!” by which time it’s too late.)

    6.) Airplane flights never get old.

    7.) I still like to freak myself out with so-called “true” ghost stories, even though I’ve more than once been startled into d—n near levitating.

    8.) I still think that there’s something fundamentally capital-W wrong with grass that doesn’t have dandelions, clover, violets, creeping charlie, etc. in it.

    9.) Spiders found in the house will be escorted (with apologies) outside, not squished.

    10.) I could easily spend a day watching the original “Muppet Show”.

    Basically, I still go through life feeling like I’m impersonating an adult, continually amazed that people actually fall for it.  Does anyone else feel like they’re pulling one over on the world that way?
