Dumb Things I’ve Done
So I was watching some YouTube yesterday and saw a video called "Things I Do That Adults Probably Don't Do" and that's where I got this idea from. So I did a lot of dumb things. Like one time I thought it would be a good idea to put my whole hand in the bathtub full of steaming hot water to check the temperature of the water.
But the ones I am going to tell today are by far the dumbest things I have done so far: So I was watching YouTube and came upon a video called "7 Animated Horror Stories" and knowing that these videos get me creep out watched it. After that I got traumatized for the whole week. But I still watch them though. And then one day I finished writing another story for the newspaper and forgot to save it so I had to write it all over again. Then one day I had a math test but I studied for a language test the night before. I don't even know how I ended up getting 18.5 out of 20 marks on that test. But that's not all. I have more to say.
One day I got a new pair of white shoes and decided to wear them on a rainy day. And I got mud all over my brand new shoes. And once I had a project to do and I saved it for the last day so I had to do it by staying awake till midnight. And because of that I was so sleepy in the morning that I forgot to take it with me at school. And then one time my mom told me to iron my party gown that I was going to wear the next day to a party but I was not paying attention to it and ended up burning it.
Then once I was packing my bag for a school picnic and I made sure I had everything. I even took an extra pair of shoes. You know incase if the first one tore down. But when we arrived at our picnic spot which was the carnival I realized that I had forgotten my purse with the money my mom had given me to spend on the rides. So I couldn't really have that much fun. I could only play the games the school had arranged. And they were pretty boring.
And one day my mom told me to keep an eye on the cake that was in the oven. But apparently I was busy scrolling through my phone that I was not paying attention to it and an hour later I realized that it was completely burnt. And once I saw a bottle of hot sauce which is a very spicy sauce and I hate spicy food. Like at home, I eat food that is almost like baby food. And on the packaging it said "Not Suitable For Children" and I read that and understood it but me being a curios child I put a spoon full of it in my
and the next thing I knew I was running around the house with my mouth on fire!!
Then once I had this "brilliant" idea (at least I thought it was brilliant) to make the biggest bubble bath so I poured all of the bubble solution in the bathtub. But little did I know that doing that will create the biggest mess instead of the biggest bubble bath. And I got grounded for a week for doing that. And I had clean that huge mess that I created.
Then once my parents were out and left me with a babysitter who had a par time job at a library nearby. So she took me with her. I didn't bring that many things to entertain myself while she worked, I just brought my phone. But after a while my phone ran out of charge. And I got board pretty soon so I asked my babysitter to give me something to do. So she told me to put the coloring books in the kids section. But while I was going to the kids section I saw the section with the horror books and thought to myself "just a few pages of a horror book won't hurt, right?" So I took a book and started reading but I got so carried away that I forgot about the coloring books. Then my babysitter came and reminded me of it but I was so distracted by the book I was reading that I ended up putting the coloring books in the horror section and I had to put them in kids section all over again. And they were not a few books. There were like 70 or 80 books. I don't even know how I put them all in the wrong section without noticing. So I think I am going to end the story here. I mean I had a lot to say but I don't want people to think that I am dumb, so bye.
