I had a friend who, when she was seven, told her parents that her five-year-old sister had eaten some wild mushrooms. It wasn't true, but she was hoping that her sister would get in trouble.

Instead her parents rushed the five-year-old off to the hospital where she had her stomach pumped.

My friend told me this when she was 20, and she still refused to tell her parents the truth for fear of getting severely punished.

I kind of like telling my parents about stuff now because they can't do anything about it. I also like their reactions.

I hope her parents don't read your blog.
