Weird things I remember...

I remember weird random things from my past. Today I will focus on strange things I remember from summer camps, either as a camper or staff. Maybe one day I'll share "how I know this information to be gospel truth".
  • Noone, who's noone?
  • Katsup packets explode if you kneed them too much!
  • If you skinny dip, you will get caught.
  • A camper should never hear cops running through the woods with scent dogs. It scares the crap outta Girl Scouts.
  • A deep freezer is not a place to lock someone in.
  • Off cans can and will explode if tossed into a campfire, thus the need for the warning label.
  • One cannot drink 2 sodas on a 10 minute break.
  • A canoe will float with 10 people in it.
  • I cannot do a front flip off the diving board but I make one hell of a belly flop.
  • Tractors don't float.
  • A suicide is not what you think it is.
  • Deer-flies hurt like hell!
  • Cigarette burns leave permanent scars.
  • Mrs. C is not as scary as her students think & Mr. C will not sit on you if you misbehave.
  • Music majors should not be in charge of camp songs. It's not chorus it's CAMP!
  • Bat ball is a lot of fun!
  • Swimsuits should never ever have zippers in them.
  • Leather bracelets rock.
  • Being the hopper has it's advantages.
  • Friendship bracelets are worth the work.
  • and last but not least... never ever send the new staff member alone to lead a hike.
Bizarre thoughts float thru my head, no wonder people question why I am not in therapy! Not to mention the fact I still send my kids to summer camp and I am very jealous that I am not there with them.

I nearly spewed my coffee all over as I read some of these! You don't need therapy! LOL! Even the person who skinny dipped probably does not need therapy. Oh, and I had a zipper bathing suit. Must have been the 90's! LOL!
