Do YOU Know A 6 Year Old Like This?

Wow, being six years old really isn't what it used to be.
I remember playing "doctor" and "cars" with Erin from next door. Waving to the "big kids" as the elementary school buses went by. Playing in my sand box with my Ghostbusters, Ninja Turtles and G.I. Joes...

Well, today I guess six year olds flee to Africa to get married and steal their parents car in order to get to school on time!

That's right. No joke!
Five and six year olds, Mika and Anna-Bell, from Germany, snuck out in the middle of the night to elope to Africa to get hitched. They hopped on a train and didn't get caught until they were setting foot on the express train to head to the Hanover airport. A security guard noticed the two, along with Mika's sister, Anna-Lena (they're witness, believe it or not!) and notified police.

Another crazy story came out of Virginia on Monday when a six year old missed his school bus and decided to take matters into his own hands. Once again, the parents were asleep (I have no idea how if it's time to go to school!) when the unidentified child stole the keys to the family 2005 Ford Tauraus, and drove 10 miles before finally crashing the sedan into a pole 1.5 miles from the school.

Now I don't know about you, but I got a huge thrill out of driving my Big Wheel and taking a trip t0 Randall's Electric (Arthur, IL)to rent Back To The Future and Mega Man when I was six. NOT driving my parents car and taking a trip to freakin Africa!
2009=crazy days

Seriously, do YOU have outrageous stories involving a six year old(s)?

  1. Haha Josh during my lapse in productivity today at work I decided to browse the usual blogs and when I came across your ole Helmuth Fix, I saw this post. I am pumped that I got a shout-out, yessss! Haha remember the time we dared each other to take a bite of a leaf in the little tree in front of my house?! Or the time after it rained a ton and we threw those huge dirt clods back into the freshly bulldozed hole for my parents' new driveway-lol my Dad was so mad at us! :) Man, those were the days!
