I was with an old friend last week, and we were talking about all the silly things we did as teenagers, whilst trying to be cool or romantic or whatever - we ended up in hysterics grin so I was wondering if any of you have any funny stories from your teen years?
I'll start, when I was about 15 I remember deliberately burning my neck with my sister's straighteners so that people would think I had a boyfriend who gave me hickeys blush

Ha ha! I remember snorting sherbet pretending it was cocaine with my friends after watching Pulp Fiction one too many times grin stupid idiots that we were.

Sunbathed smothered in cooking oil!

Wore jeans before they were dry after being washed, coz I just HAD to wear them that night and nothing else would do.

Rang a boy, pretended I was my best friend and told him I fancied him ('my best friend fancies you'). Next day at school he said 'that was you on the phone wasn't it?' But he asked me out grin

Met blokes off the internet. Always in a public place but this was when the net was new and it through chat rooms.

Pretended to smoke incense sticks, also pretending to be french while smoking them.

Met my husband in an MSN chat room.

Randomly used fake tan on my arms & I think face (in the 80s) - not a good look. Am usually very pale!
Me and my best friend (at around age 14) slugged down a bit of my mum's sherry and then called up the boys we fancied - i rang hers and she rang mine - to say 'someone' fancies you!

Want to a club in London that kicked out at 4am . Near Kings Cross in the 90's. My friend and I decided we would hang around down by the canal until the first tube as it would be quiet down there and we would be safe hmm

We got a taxi and chirpily informed the driver of our plans. Thank God for that man. " No you are bloody well not" were his words and he instead drove us to Old Compton Street to sit in an all night cafe with strict instructions to share a sandwich until the first train.

Thank God for that man. I dread to think what could have happenned of we had met a driver who didn't give a shit. Get he had teenagers of his own.

"Accidentally" text boys who were understandably ignoring me random things which were "meant for someone else" to try and get them to reply.

Perfected the art of "drunk texting" so I could pretend to whichever boy I fancied I was super cool out drinking on a school night when really I was in bed with a horlicks.

Borrow my friends older sisters baby and push the pram down the high street because I thought it made me look cool and grown up. blush

I used to pretend to be French whenever my friends and I went anywhere that wasn't our home town.

witchofzog what a kind taxi driver.
Ladydeadpool I also did that with incense sticks!
And baked banana skins and tried to smoke them because we'd heard somewhere that they were hallucinogenic.

Scarlets - I did that too grin
My friends and I also used to bring in alcopops in water bottles when we were in sixth form and drink them in our Physics class - I am a respectable adult now, honestly blush

Too many daft things to mention!
Tied my feet together and tried to skip- broke my nose!
Took a pregnant stray cat home after a few drinks one night- gave birth three days later in my mums dining room.
Skived school and went to Glasgow on the train, hid the tickets under my stereo which my mum found when dusting.
God I was a handful!

I remember my sister washing her hair with 5 bananas which was apparently recommended in Sugar magazine.

Her hair looked shit and it took a week to unblock the shower.

Oh my! I now remember magazines advising mashed bananas for silky hair <nostalgia> Also lemon juice on sunny days for highlights. And a very cold rinse at the end to make it super shiny.

Got my friend to take 'drunk' photos of me when I was sober so I could show the cool kids I was just as cool blush

When we were in sixth form, me and my stupid friends all decided to take lsd at lunchtime and then go back to school.
We were off our tits. Not a good idea at all and not one I've ever repeated.

These are hilarious grin I remember my friends and I pretending to be snorting cocaine with sherbet as well - and like Lipgloss74 I once put my feet into the arms of my hoodie and hopped about, thinking for some reason it was hilarious, until my mum walked into the room and saw me! blush
