People Are Sharing Hilarious Childhood Stories Where They Act Like Tiny Adults
Everyone has weird stories from childhood. You were a kid, and kids do strange things. Sometimes those stories paint a pretty accurate picture of the person you'll become as an adult. Those are the kind of stories people are sharing in a new game on Twitter.
The Twitter user @prinxeMu asked people to share their "most On Brand™️ story" from early childhood. The wording has confused some people, but they're just asking for the "most you" story, more or less. The results are honest and often hilarious. It turns out, those unexpected moments of childhood protest and chaos sometimes paint an accurate picture of what's to come.
What's the most On Brand™️ story you have from your early childhood.— mu✨ (@prinxeMu) July 8, 2018
Mine is when my mom told me not to touch the electric stove when it was red, because that meant it was hot, so I made direct eye contact with her and slapped my hand down on the stove top.
The tweet from @prinxeMu has gone viral, and people are sharing their "on brand" stories. Many of the stories feature kids who were ready to grow up and be taken seriously by adults. Some of the stories are funny, some are personal, and, based on the replies, almost all of them are relatable.
Here are a few of the best responses.
Before school started, when all the kids were playing on the blacktop, I used to sit on my backpack and read. This concerned some of the other moms so much that they told my mom and we had a talk about "antisocial behavior"— Lauren Reeves (@LaurenReevsie) July 8, 2018
my kindergarten teacher wanted me tested for learning disabilities because i refused to answer their questions after listening comprehension stories, when in reality my argument was “you just read the story, how did you already forget what color the dog was”— ✨sdcc buff✨ (@buffaluffalo) July 8, 2018
I won a free book when I was in 1st grade, but chose a 3rd grade book of spooky stories— Gulch (@woven_gulch) July 8, 2018
The first story was about a girl who wore a ribbon around her neck every day, untied it as she was dying, and her head fell off
It scared me so bad that I made my dad return it to the store
either the one thanksgiving where I spent the entire time under the table eating pretzels or the fact that any time i got a speck of anything on my clothes I demanded to change outfits to the point where it was suspected I just like changing outfits— annie! (@dancynrew) July 8, 2018
At 10, dragged 3 month old Xmas tree to school for 2 miles to feature it in a school play about fire safety & the hazards of dry Xmas trees.— stable genuis (@CoadyQuilts) July 8, 2018
The custodians wouldn’t let me bring it in. Because it was a fire hazard.
I was outraged.
The neighbors talked about it for years.
had to write a fairytale in 5th grade and mine was about santa claus leaving his wife for the younger, hotter tooth fairy, who was secretly trying to poach the elves for her teeth whitening business. mrs. claus got a makeover from the easter bunny and refused to take santa back. https://t.co/opsVskiBpa— Jocelyn Silver (@silverjocelyn) July 9, 2018
my mom was a sales manager on L'Óreal Brasil, and on "take your kids to work" day she introduced me to her boss and I straight up called him a liar because their kid's shampoo totally made me eyes sting even if the label said "no tears" https://t.co/2rVCAKRDhQ— isadora zeferino (@imzeferino) July 9, 2018
in first grade a boy named oscar told me he had a crush on me. i insisted he get his grades up and try harder in school before he could call himself my boyfriend. apparently six year old me had incredibly high standards.— Molly Gingrich (@mollygingrich) July 9, 2018
I was sent to the hospital with a mystery illness. No one knew what was wrong, but I was dangerously dehydrated. It took a day to figure out the culprit.— Laura Albanese (@AlbaneseLaura) July 8, 2018
I had snuck into the fridge multiple times in one day to slowly eat prosciutto.
All of it.
A full pound.
I was three. https://t.co/o3Tw2yBICY
Kids are weird little creatures. However, in retrospect, some of the weird decisions you make as a kid make a whole lot of sense, even when you probably shouldn't have done the things you did.
