What is the unwisest (not sure if that is a word, but it sounds better than stupidest) thing(s) you have done while as a young adult?
I got drunk and got a hang over. Never got drunk after that, didn't like the hang over effects! LOL

Drank a bottle of Boone's farm wine with a friend and pierced my ears with a sewing machine needle and a potato...infection, the holes were not even and major Owie.

Also slept on one of those furnace grates found in older homes that are in the middle of the room...the pillow caught on fire and burned the living room to smoldering ashes...too much to drink that night also.  Don't drink at all anymore.

Don't have enough time to list everything. LOL!

One of my sisters pierced her ears and mine both one afternoon with a needle.
I think this was my third hole.
She just sterilized the needle and didn't even attempt to numb it, no potato either. LOL!

Luckily they were fine, no infection or anything. :D

Being a young adult in the late sixties, early seventies gave me many
opportunities to do a lot of dumb things...and I did!

Donna, I pierced ears the same way...a needle and raw potato, the only differance
I was drinking beer.

One thing that stands out in my mind, was falling asleep, sitting up in a chair with
a lit cigarette...staring the chair on fire...luckily I didn't get burned and didn't burn
down the house. The chair was a gonner though.

Does anyone feel like reading a novel?  (I was also a young woman of the 60s and 70s.)
Let's see....I dropped a cigarette between my legs while driving and went careening down an embankment.  Left my purse on top of my car about a dozen times, including once on a vacation before I set off over a mountain pass, and once before heading town a canyon after a night out.  Always got everything back from good samaritans somehow! turn

I think for me it was starting to smoke at the age of 13. I so wanted to be just like my sister and her friends.

Well, it goes something like this...
Back in 1979, I was out with the girls dancing at the Crazy Horse Saloon in CO when we all decided to go grab a case of beer and head to the hills to howl with the coyotes. Being the most daring, and I use that word loosely, I was the one who climbed atop the highest boulder only to find out my fear of heights was by no means overshadowed by the consumption of beer, and I mean a lot of beer. As you may have guessed, I found myself stuck, on top of that boulder for the rest of the night. I'm pretty sure that was the same night I quit drinking beer all together.

   Posted 7/28/2010 8:33 AM (GMT -7) old geezers sure did love to set things on fire!!  Now that I think about it, I burned off my eyebrows and bangs lighting a cig off a gas stove.  Also set my shirt on fire leaning over a cluster of candles in my dorm room...we did that back then.  Sat around listening to the Kingston Trio and Bob Dylan in a candle lit room.   The college was in a dry county so no booze but we all thought we could get loaded by drinking coke and aspirin, or by setting apple cider on the radiator until it got 'hard'  Lucky we didn't bleed to death, or croak from salmonella.

 Ah..the 60's...what a great time in my life. Really!

oh boy was that a "loaded" question, (Pun intended as you will see)

Well.... 1st of all I got myself engaged at 16 and married at 17. The night before the wedding, I was still busy moving things into our net appartment. So I stacked up a load of books, one on top of the other and then grabbed my husband to be's (unloaded) 357mag w/hollowpoint bullets, gun and stacked it on top and began to carry across the room to put the stuff away. OK, so I tripped, fell or something and the gun hit the floor landing on the firing pin, I knew I had dropped it so I bent over at the same time to pick it up. THATS's the moment I realized that the UNLOADED gun was LOADED. I saw the fire and fell to the floor. Passed out. When I came to, alone in the house the was a huge pool of blood and you guessed it, I could not get up. The bullet went through my left leg, shattering the tibia and fibia...What a day... Drug myself to the door and screemed until someone came running.
Doc's say that this accident was the start of my body issues and the fibro... (the gun was recalled for a faulty system that caused the gun to fire if it was hit on the hammer, too bad I found this our after the statue of limitations ran our)

Well, too many to list but my friend and I did the ear piercing thing with an ice cube and large needle. Mine turned out uneven. Drinking some kind of green sweet drink on the top deck of a cruise ship during a storm. The stuff blew all over my silk shirt. I married when I was 18 and had 2 kids by the time I was 22 so I grew up pretty quick. Also, no fun getting up the next day with babies when you were hung over.
