Honestly, from where I was standing, climbing back down would have been more dangerous than a well calculated well timed jump.

When my oldest was 5 (we are always more nervous about our first child) he was out in the back yard playing and I was in the house with the back door open. I hear him calling me, "Moooom......" I go out the back door and I don't see him. He calls me again. I still don't see him. I'm looking around. He said, "Up here!" I look up the very tall pine tree and there's his little face between all the branches. He was way at the top of a at least 40 foot pine tree. I almost start hyperventilating but I don't want to teach that fear to me kids. I reply in a shakey, weak voice, "Wow, you sure are high up. Be very careful climbing down." Then I went back in the house because I didn't want to watch him climb down and if he fell there wasn't going to be any way for me to prevent it. Fortunately, because of the nature of the way pine trees grow it's almost like climbing up or down a ladder. The branches are almost like steps. I was scared ****less but I didn't want him to know it. I didn't want to make my son a wuss.

How many people have ever jimmied there own car door open? First time, took about three minutes. Not quite good enough to be a felon, probably won't get enough practice to be that good.

I've done it twice, took me about the same time as it did you. Stupid automatic locks decided to play a joke while my keys where on the seat.

Jeeps are the easiest, I can get into a Jeep with a coat hanger... Never been able to get into anything else with one, and it only took a few seconds...

I may, or may not, have broken into and hot wired my cousin's Firebird once, then drove it across town and hid it from him for a couple of days.... He deserved it, I swear.

You're lucky you didn't get arrested for that one.


One time my Boston Terrier locked me out of my car. He was in the car with the engine running and he got excited to see me walking towards the car and jumped on the lock button and all the doors locked. I had the police come and open my car for me. We all had a good laugh.

Yeah... to this day he and the police have no idea who did it. There's a statute of limitation on grand theft auto right?

He let his friend take me to Texas, not entirely his fault but STILL! I think it was a well deserved prank.
