Ok, this happened before mid summer of 1982 (because we moved to a different house that summer) and my dad had recently bought a garden hose reel. Bright orange with plastic sides to keep the hose in place as you reeled it in. Similar to this one below:
This hose reel was kept in the back of the house, which had a very narrow alley like yard. There we would play football (soccer to some of ya'll). Well, one day my friend and I were playing football. He was the goal keep and I lined up the ball. Then took quite a few steps back, ran up to the ball and kicked it as hard as I could. Lo and behold, the ball hit the hose reel and broke a big part of the orange guide out of it, with accompanying noise :(
My friend and I got so scared that we took off running into the street. The my dad shouted out the window for me to come back. Yup, he was not happy and I was put in time out or something.
What about you, what is the most trouble you got into as a kid?
Let’s make it a great Thursday!
