Then, as I stood there, breathing hard, sweat-soaked, shaking, red-faced
and probably bleeding from the neck, I heard laughter from behind me.
Turning, I saw two teenage girls standing across the foot-blistering
street, looking at me and laughing. I imagine they'd been standing there
for some time, watching the stupid kid with his head in the mailbox trying
to keep his roller-skated feet from scrambling around at all angles while
screaming gibberish that erupted from out of the mailbox like Grand Canyon
Gathering what was left of my dignity which pretty much amounted to me
pretending it had never actually happened I pivoted on my skates, climbed
up the driveway, entered the garage and stayed there for ten years.
What's the stupidest thing you did as a kid?
