Ever have random weird memories that always pop up on your head?

When I was 15 I dated a girl who got food poisoning and she told me that she had really bad diahhrea. She described it as "being glued to the porcelain " so whenever I hear that word I think of that. I dunno why.

Every once in a while (once last week even) I think about I quiz I took in elementary school, maybe around 3rd of 4th grade. There was this true or false question: It's unhealthy to squint your eyes in bright sunlight.

 

It boggled my mind, in the sentiment of "really? they're trying to get people to not squint while outside?" I'm not even sure if that's what they were trying to say. Maybe they were trying to say it is healthy. I never found out, because I don't remember getting the quiz back. I don't even care about the real medical answer. I just want to know wtf the quiz was trying to get at.

What the fuck does that question even mean. Shouldn't we squint when it's bright??? Or does it mean to never look at the sun??

When I was in 2nd grade, our teacher asked us to find (French) words which ended in "ein". When I brought her my list for her to check, she saw the word "sein" (female breast), and looked at me like I was the reincarnation of Hitler. She was furious. But she didn't say a word and marked it as correct.

 

What was she expecting? There aren't a million of such words, and I certainly wasn't thinking about breasts sexually back then.

 

Two years later, another teacher told the class that adding a number's digits was called taking its absolute value. We didn't know better back then, but man...

ha, i had one of these school memories pop up last night

 

it was lunch and me and a group of other dudes in 5th grade that i wasnt even friends with so i dont know why we were hanging out, but there was a large bottle water just sitting on the curb around the field. for some reason we started taking turns throwing it at the concrete wall trying to get it to burst. the girl who set it down came back to get it and started crying uncontrollably, which led to us getting in trouble by a furious teacher. over a bottle of water that probably cost $1.

 

epilogue one: i developed a huge crush on that girl a few years later but i was already a long hair weirdo and she was 'cool' by then.

 

epilogue two: probably around 2002 i hung out with a dude for a while who was, to be blunt, a drug dealer. he would hook me up w weed for driving him to pick stuff up. one time we went to a shady ass house for one of these side quests and that girl was there all coked out and i felt real weird and sad about it.

I don't remember much of my childhood except for this one time I packed myself under one of those little tables with the Lego top and ate a jelly sandwich.

I've got one more while I'm thinking of it.

 

My 1st grade was at this place called the "1st Grade Center", where all of the students in the county went. There was some half-baked reason for this, like that'll help integrate students or maybe have specialists to ease the students into a full school day, or some shit like that. I can tell you that it was really disorienting, going to a school where you only knew 1/4th of the kids there from the previous year, and then you never saw that 3/4ths again when you went back to your regular elementary school.

 

I remember one day in the lunch room there was a pervasive smell that made me sick to my stomach. It smelled like death to me. I didn't have any friends nearby to ask if they sensed the same thing. I sat there silent, by myself, trying to eat my PB&J and Polly-O String Cheese (editor's note: research on when Polly-O String Cheese hit the market doesn't corroborate this, but just run with it). I even remember where I was sitting at the table & bench combo on wheels, in what was also the gym when it wasn't lunch. I was facing the same "Exit" sign that fell open when I hit it with the home run I made one time during kick ball in PE class.

 

Near the start of my struggle through lunch, I looked down at the floor, at about 1 o'clock, through the gap between top and bench on the white, fold-able lunch table, and that's when I saw what looked like a human finger, severed cleanly at around the 2nd knuckle, sticking upwards at a lazy angle, about 15-20 degrees, as if it belong to someone who was clipping through the floor from underneath it. I can't quite remember which direction it was pointing, but it wasn't at me. I could clearly see it from an angle that let me view the long fingernail and whatever dark-ish nail polish that seemed to be on it. I didn't investigate further. Again, I didn't have anyone in arm's reach that I felt I could trust to the point of asking about it. I was scared out of my wits, so I endured the nausea in silence and got the fuck out of there as soon as I was able. Nothing like this ever happened again.

 

The stench was probably some perfume, much of which I was sensitive to as a kid (still kind of am, to be honest). Who knows what the finger actually was, but my overactive imagination turned it into a very clear image of a human finger, correct skin tone and all. I was harrowed by this memory a bunch as a kid. I'm much less concerned now, but I am kind of getting a knot in the pit of my stomach from typing it all out.

Oh god that is frightening. One memory that always comes back to me is being like 4 years old and sitting on my step mom's shoulders at a George Benson concert. It's like a 2 second blip but it always stuck with me

I remember in 4th grade at lunch, taking a sip of my grape HI-C... and it going down the wrong pipe.

 

I began to choke and cough like no other.  This was room temperature grape HI-C I was choking on, but it may as well have been hydrochloric acid.  It burned my nose and throat for what felt like an eternity.  I probably had about 15-20 kids all staring at me in the middle of the lunchroom, but this could not be verified for all the tears in my eyes. 

 

Finally, mercifully, it subsided.  I have not touched grape HI-C since.

I have a memory that pops up from time to time from when I was a child and we were at the beach. Either my parents and my aunt were elsewhere, or my uncle was just playing with us closer to the water or something. I ran back from the water and did like a home plate slide and kicked all this sand onto my uncle and he got real pissed off and yelled at me. I felt really ashamed about it and whenever the memory pops up I feel that shame again. But my aunt and uncle divorced not too long after and I haven't even seen him in like 20 years at least, so why do I keep thinking about it and feeling bad?

I once bought a Dokken CD when I was 15 looking for a song that Warehouse music told me was on it. Same song title, not the same song. I still am mad I spent $20 on that

one of the first times i can recall hurting myself, i was eating eggplant parmesan and somehow slipped off the chair and landed lip-first on the floor, splitting it open with my teeth and gushing what i remember to be tons of blood (it probably wasn't much in hindsight). my child brain somehow associated this w eggplant parm and i would get real nervous anytime it was even mentioned until i was probably like 15.

A big part of me trying to become more of an adult is trying to forgive myself for stupid shit I did as a kid/teenager.  I still definitely feel shame/embarrassment when I remember certain things, but there's no need for that.  As long as I've incorporated that shame as "just don't do that shit again", then the learning has happened, and the negative feelings are easier to just purge.

I remember taking a standardized test in high school and during one of the reading portions it was all about sleep cycles and REM sleep. I found it really, really fascinating and it always stuck with me.
