Monday Memories


Monday Memories: Did I ever tell you about the time I jumped out of a 2nd-story window?



My sister is 6-1/2 years older than me, so as you can imagine, it was her job to babysit me sometimes when I was little. The first 8 years of my life, we were living in a huge 2-story house that had been made into 3 apartments that my parents owned and rented out the other 2. We lived on the 2nd story. One day when I was 7 years old, my parents were out and my sister was watching me. I forget now what we argued about, but we had had a little fight. I went in my room and closed the door. After I had been in there awhile, I decided to try and scare her. She was in the living room watching tv. I opened my bedroom window, and climbed out, dangling down the side of the house hanging on to the window sill with my fingertips. I hung there for a few moments and then pushed away from the house with my feet and let go. I landed on my feet, but felt the pain shoot through my ankles and up my legs from the hard landing. But, I was fine after a second. Then I ran around to the front door and knocked on it. I was hoping to totally freak out and confuse my sister when she opened the door and saw me there, since she thought I was in my room! LOL! And I was hoping that when I told her I had jumped out of my window that she would be so relieved that I was okay that she wouldn't be mad at me anymore. Kinda twisted logic, but it made sense to me at the time. But, instead, she yelled at me and told me to get back inside. When I told her what I'd done, she looked at me and said, "No you didn't". I said, "well, how do you think I got outside?!" And she said something like, "Oh, you just went out the back door when I wasn't looking, so stop lying to me." "I swear I did" "No you didn't" and so on. I never could get her to believe me! Even to this day, when it gets brought up, she STILL doesn't believe me.
