|Tree, or Bush, or naked lady?Page 1 of 1 |
|Anyone remember those little grass plants, and the guessing game? Was it just my school that was so boring that students had to play with grass?|
The little ditty in the title was the best part...it was always bush anyway. Like playing paper rock scissors but only having rocks.... then marbles came along.
What are some of the weirdest childhood games you used to play?
|In Baltimore, Maryland we played " Skully " !!!!|

|Never heard of the game you are talking about. Weirdest ( I wouldn't use this term to describe the childhood games I played ) couldn't really say. A different game from most that I played was called " Skillet ". We'd play it in Baltimore, Maryland (my home town, on the west-side of town they called it, " Skully " (The real technical name). I played on the east-side (the same side of town as Memorial Stadium). This game would really draw you in when you'd play it. The great thing about it was we'd play right in front of the house so parents always knew where we were when we'd play it. The game is rather involved and would take too long to explain here, but needless to say, playing it helped us all to learn more about our friends. The best time of my life as a child.|

|I was the only girl in a family of all boy cousins. They gave me h e l l. Hey wanna play hide-n-go seek? Sure,then I'd hide in the smoke house and they would lock me in. Wanna go craw fishing? They would rub bacon on my fingers and stick them in the water. Dance,they would say after watching a western,No,I don't want to,so they shot me in the ankle with a bb-gun. I danced. Ever been rolled down the road in a large tire? Shot with china berries in a sling shot? I don't know how I survived.|

|I'm not sure if those are games or just the torturing of an easy target. Hope they grew up in time.|
side note, some people seem to think this is a chat thread let me make it clear.
Topic = odd childhood games or pasttimes.

|We used to run between the cars on the freeway..Play tag with bb guns..Play army with dirt bombs and rocks..And I can't remember the name of the game when you throw a knife between a persons feet but we did it with lawn darts...The only thing I wouldn't do was climb on and over or under trains stopped at a crossing, everything else riding bicycles down stairs, throwing fireworks at each other I was game...|

|Some of the kids in the old neighborhood would play a game of chicken. When a car drove by, they would rollerskate down one of the driveways, grab onto the fender of the car, and ride as far as they could down the street. We were all around eleven or twelve years of age at the time. The boys probably did this foolishness in an attempt to impress the girls. Reality is that we were laughing at them!!!|
I never liked playing crack the whip when our class went skating, simply because I was often the one used as the projectile. Needless to say, I haven't been skating since about the 7th grade!
One of my family members used to light a match then spray the Lysol can, sometimes causing a flame to shoot out at least a foot or two. And he wasn't always outside when he did this. Silly kid......

|When I was a kid, I wanted the school day to be over early sometimes.|
My teachers SUSPECTED me of being a Cherry Bomb in the commode/stink bomb/smoke bomb pyrotechnic.
But it wasn't ME -- I swear!

|There was this kid in the boys home I was in put lighter fluid in his mouth (alittle too much) and went to blow it out his face caught on fire...I really tried not to laugh. Remember lighting gasers? In military school I fell for alittle game called "Shoot the Moon" I'm not going to say anymore about that.|
