The number of girls I was to shy to ask out at the time, only to find out many, many, years latter, they would have said YES if I had only asked at the time!
Things that passed you by, as a child
I used to think the government was there make sure everyone was looked after.
That gasometers were full of hot ribena.

Two asked me out. I said no as I thought they were out of my league.
The class structure. Well, until I was around seventeen. Obviously 'posh folk' drove around in Rollers, but in the main, I didn't have a clue. Might have been due to the fact I was heavily into alcohol at 12, so I guess an awful lot passed me by.
Probably for the best...
I was a mightily pissed off child the first time I was offered a mince pie at Chirstmas, only to bite into the thing and find that some funny fecker had put fruit in it and not meat.
Back in the Medieval/Renaissance period mince pies did actually have meat in them, it wasn't seen as odd to have meat, spices and preserved fruits in a pie. I've eaten medieval recipes and proper mince pies/Great Pies are fantastic!
My Uncle Billy used to make pennies appear from behind my ear by saying 'Abracadabra!' I thought it was real magic till I was about 10.
I used to think the future was for old people..
I will never forget my shock at still being alive to see my 18th birthday
