As a companion thread to this one:
“Things that happened to you as a child that would be now considered scandalous”,
What scandalous thing did you do as a kid that now is no big deal?
I was going through Freshman Orientation at college and was busted for “gambling”. There were probably 5 or 6 guys in my room, and we were playing penny ante poker and were busted by the RAs. Each of us had to write a letter to the Dean and plead our case or we would have lost our spot in the Freshman class.
I guess if I had been going to a private, Christian college that would be a big scandal, but this was a state school.
When I was in high school my grandmother called my father and made him drive 75 miles to talk to her in person because she had to tell him something that you just don’t discuss over the phone. He drove down to meet her to be told in the most discreet terms that his cousin’s son was getting a divorce. This was the 1970’s, not the 1670’s.
