What is your most memorable childhood experience?My most memorable childhood experience is when my sister and I played on the side of the highway at night waiting for cars to pass with their headlights on.

What is the funniest thing ever to happen to you?My family, for vacation, drove 16 hours to spend 2 weeks with our one of our cousins. My cousins live in the middle of nowhere in the woods. My sister, one of our cousins, and I decided to sleep in a tent on their trampoline. As it became dark, we heard a growl from an animal coming from outside our tent. At that time, my cousins had a Golden Retriever named Snoopy. With all of us scared and silent, listening to what is happening, I spoke up, "Snoopy would let us know if a bear was outside." My cousin immediately stated, "Snoopy lost his hearing. He can't hear anymore." To which I replied, "He would be able to see the bear at least." She then said, "He really can't see either." My sister said, "He would be able to smell if there was a bear and bark." My cousin replied, "He is old. He can't hear, see, or smell anything. If a bear is close by he isn't going to know." Terrified, we discussed running to the house for safety. After gathering up the courage, the three of us sprinted towards the safety of the house. After making it in the house and closing the door we noticed the growling was coming from inside the house. As it turns out, my mother was snoring so loudly that we thought it was a bear outside our tent.
