Tempest: ” Reminds me of this one time I was a flower girl at a relative’s wedding and one of the other flower girls went missing during the reception. It was at a massive hotel so finding her was near impossible. Smart little me thought it will be cool to “go missing” myself and, during the commotion, went and hid in a closet in a randomly open room. I got my ears blasted off that day by the adults who had to succeed in finding the other flower girl only to start all over again to look for me.”

Papa: “The police didn’t get called, but I’m told that when I was a baby my mother laid me right in the middle of a bed, and then went into another room for a brief time. When she came back she couldn’t find me for a while, but she finally looked under the bed, and there I was. Apparently I had rolled off the bed and then under it without making a sound.”

Natalie H: “My sister and I made our own ‘ice skating rink’ on the kitchen floor with water and dish soap when our parents weren’t home. We cleaned it up afterwards so we wouldn’t get in trouble. My sweet mom thought we were being thoughtful and had mopped the floor, so she thanked us and made us a treat. After that we started mopping the floor for real, out of guilt. Lol”

Robert T: ” I doubt the actual David was touring. He is 5.17 metres tall and weighs 8.5 tons and would be far too valuable to risk moving. It was likely a replica, of which quite a number have been made.”
