    Too funny. (Now I can't get the picture out of my head.)
    When all else fails, claim it's rigged.

    ENFP child: I got into big trouble for writing I wanted to be a mermaid when I grew up in the third grade. I also argued why it was a real job

    I got the best vocabulary and messiest desk award in the 4th grade

    I would speak my mind all the time, stood up for the underdogs any chance I could (bit of a drama queen)

    in middle school my teachers told my parents they would love to see the outfits I wore, they said I looked like a punk rock highlighter. And my mom agreed.

    .... I agree.....

    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    I felt really sad when I caught a few of my 5th grade teachers smoking cigarettes. Basically ruined 5th grade prom for me, although this number cheered me up for a bit.

    In the same sentence? I wouldn't hear of it.

    When I was really young, maybe 5-6, I would fill the holes our dog dug in the back yard with hose water and sprinkle bark over them. My younger brother would always follow me and (I feel really guilty about this now) it annoyed the hell out of me, so I'd put pieces of candy just beyond the holes. I know, I've secured a spot in hell.

    My father always used to pose moral dilemmas and we'd exchange solutions. Once I had a feel for his principles I would police him tirelessly (this was usually my childhood approach to pressure--beat them at their own game). Funny in retrospect, but it was really my only defense from impossible expectations.

    In elementary school I was the kid who would circle "or" when girls would slip me "yes or no" notes.

    I used to play with my food in interesting ways. I would flatten out and shape mashed potatoes into a large square and then divide that into smaller squares and put pieces of whatever meat we were eating on top of those potato squares. Or I would make the potatoes into a shape and then keep paring away at it, making it smaller and smaller as I ate the potatoes. Lots of geometry and trying to find novel ways to eat my food.

    Ok mine:

    My parents got freaked out one day because they couldn't find their 2 yo... turns out I had climbed up to the top of the pine trees between my house and the next door neighbors' house. I kid you not... I was a freakish baby...

    Also, sucking on a butterscotch candy while going pee in the basement bathroom, the candy fell out of my mouth into the toilet... faced with a dilemma, I decided to fish it out, washed it off in the sink with soap and water and ate it. This was prob age 7 or so... because I have a pretty clear memory.
