Those were fighting words when i was a youngster and if Irish ever gets back on myLot...hahah There wasn't one thing i wouldn't do on a dare and since i hung out with the boys..girls were ok but i wasn't into dolls i liked boys so why not hang out with them? Learned many things and taught each other. How to do Guy games, work on cars and whistle...What did you think i learned? What games did you learn from someone else or as a Child???

I was quite a tom boy too. Learned to dash along the rocks and not get hurt. Learned to swim from my cousin who just took me into the deep end and through me in.

If you can hide really close to home,you can almost always get there while "it" is far away looking for you in hide and seek.

I learned how to deal with bullies. I was the first person in my class to learn to drive a car. One of the first days I drove to school a couple of those bullies 'asked' me to give them a ride in my car. I 'gave' them the ride of their lives and they never asked again. I guess they did not like 'chicken' while driving in reverse weaving in between light posts in the parking lot. Especially since they were in the back seat and I was driving rather fast!!

I used to play the game called Hopscotch with friends when I was a kid. I also played marbles, like the one shown in the picture. And if you look closely, there's a spinning top next to the boy, I also played that before. These are mostly boys's games but I enjoyed them when I was a kid. There's also this game called "Congkak" and it's a traditional game. Oh, how I wish I was a kid again.

I learned some games. But I was always drawn to the girls. For me, being a man, I always found the girls more interesting. Not all the time mind you, but a lot of the the time. But, the sad reality is that, even though I was drawn to the girls, they never looked at me or wanted to bother with me. So, my best friend was me.

@Rosekitty I don't know about that. I wasn't the good looking guy then. But I managed. I did my thing and enjoyed myself. Things did change as I got older.

Hmm, I learned games as I got older. When I was young I learned about relationships from the girls that were my friends. Now I'm trying to relearn about relationships again! Imagine that? I think the practical knowledge I had back then was residual knowledge from my former self.

I also play with my male cousins in our childhood days . We would all ride a home made scooter that has a seemingly side raft we would ride . It can fit two children . It's nice being the only girl in a group of male friends because they treat you like their little sister .

@Rosekitty absolutely. I cudnt talk to girls when i was a kid. They always gossiped. Plus the teacher told me to sit between the boys as I was very talkative and they thought I would shut up in between boys or something, but I had a lot of fun with them.

I had an older brother and I used to learn things like makes and years of model cars and how to play tennis and chess, etc. I also learned from my father how to do carpentry. I guess I was a tomboy.

She has trouble with this site, more so than I do. I hope she does get back on though, it's just not the same without her. I hung out with a mixed group growing up, of girls and boys. My favorite was climbing trees but I was so young back then. We played Eggs, eggs bacon and ham (I think that was what it was called), simon says, kickball. I learned to hit a ball by a tough as nails neighbor who was teaching his grandson.
