Inspired by  Your tech confessions: What are you afraid to admit?: Why not have a thread for all non-tech related confessions? I'll start:

 

I wasn't able to tie my shoelaces on my own until the age of 9. To this day I have the problem of shoelaces untying themselves far more often than I like to admit. Why? Beats me. All-around clumsiness I reckon.

Most of us figured as much. The green skin is kind of a giveaway, don't you think?

I was more nervous and easily getting angry.

 

4 years ago, I became calmer

I never was allowed to have a cat as a pet... therefore one day I took my pillow and mi imagination went "cat", hence any pillow for me is a cat and I imitate the sounds of a real one, I'm so good a it that some other real cats listen to me :shiftyninja:. Gives a whole new meaning to "I will talk it with the pillow" expression. Needles to say, I prefer mi cat pillow than any real cat any day. dogs are nice real pets :D

I was once having sex with a girlfriend whilst she and I were drunk, I threw up by the side of her bed then went right back to what I was doing with her (the bedroom didn't get cleaned till we both woke up the day after)

I used a garden fork to balance whilst walking along a fence.

I fell, fork went through my shoe.

 

I was distraught at what mum would say when she saw my shoe had a hole in it.

It wasn't until I showed her the shoe and took it off that I noticed my sock was red with blood and I needed to get it looked at properly.

 

A few years later I was using a garden fork properly and managed to stick it through the same foot yet again.

 

TL/DR - Garden forks are vicious!

I also managed to drive a piece of plate through the palm of my left hand in one of the most bizzare accidents imaginable.

 

I reached into a cupboard to get a tin of food for my cat, but the tin of food rolled out of the cupboard and fell. I swiped my hand downwards to try and grab it but I was not quick enough. The tin landed on a plate that had been left on top of my microwave (thankfully a clean plate) and smashed it, and a shard of the plate managed to flip itself vertically. My hand came down on top of it and it went through the palm of my hand, I couldn't use my hand for about 3 days afterwards.

We do now :p

 

I was afraid of my private parts getting tangled in the gears of a combine harvester

Actually, I didn't stop wetting the bed until I was 15, (father used to be an alcoholic back then, there's more to it, but I figured the adults here will understand if I said no more than that)
