Happy hump day! We’re finally a couple of days closer to the weekend! If you’re in need of something to cheer you up, let’s rewind to simpler times and revisit some hilarious things we all did as kids, cause goodness knows we all need to forget the woes of adulthood every now and then.
Mom, I’m sleeping

We used to hate forced siestas as kids because we’d rather run around outside with our playmates but oh boy, how we faked deep sleep come chore time. Now, we’re just caffeine-dependent adults who must fight the mid-afternoon sleepiness every day.
But why was this me 😭🤣🤣🤣 pic.twitter.com/rb3JkrMnrn

If you’re a fan of Buzzfeed Unsolved, the experience definitely sounds like the spirit box or the tool Shane and Ryan use to communicate with the supernatural. Have you tried doing this while riding an airplane too?

The same goes for when you accidentally swallow watermelon seeds. Parents say they’ll grow in your tummy until it explodes – even when there’s no soil. (BTW, just in case you didn’t know, it’s true that our stomachs cannot digest bubble gum but swallowing it isn’t harmful. Gum doesn’t stay in our stomachs!)

Ah, the family summer outings where you’d have your KSP time in the pool and wait until someone shows you that they care.
Played with Elmer’s Glue

This clip is Elmer’s Glue trick on steroids but we used to do this all the time back in elementary with just our hands. Never mind the maasim palms after because of the glue, it was a very fun game to play with classmates.

Remember when you had to wrap these scented plastic things carefully in cotton or tissue to try to make them “multiply”? There was also another variant that looked like sago — you were supposed to soak them in alcohol to make them have babies. After our many attempts at making them multiply came back fruitless, we don’t know what to believe anymore.
Lip fillers who?

One of the funniest things about being a kid is being curious enough to try different things even if you know they’ll only be painful. No need for lip fillers or products that make your lips plump; you only need your mom’s hair clamp.
True hustlers know this is the real deal when you want to get extra money to buy snacks from the sari-sari store.
