Number 2: When I was a young lad (3 to 4 years old) I would wake up in the middle of the night, strip down and put on boot and wander outside....in the north east winters looking into the windows of neighboors houses. Useing my ninja-like skills I would slip past my parents and wander around the neighborhood. My parents eventually had to put a lock on the outside of my room so I couldn't escape.
Dang parents!
lol
