Top Ten Craziest Things We Did In High School

Welcome to the next stop in the MY KIND OF CRAZY Blog Tour (woot!). Today Robin Reul (the author) and a few other authors/bloggers (including myself) will be sharing with you guys some of the craziest things I did in high school. First, let's talk about the book!

"Despite the best of intentions, seventeen-year old, wisecracking Hank Kirby can’t quite seem to catch a break. It’s not that he means to screw things up all the time, it just happens. A lot. Case in point: his attempt to ask out the girl he likes literally goes up in flames when he spells “Prom” in sparklers on her lawn…and nearly burns down her house.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, Peyton Breedlove, a brooding loner and budding pyromaniac, witnesses the whole thing. Much to Hank’s dismay, Peyton takes an interest in him—and his “work.” The two are thrust into an unusual friendship, but their boundaries are tested when Hank learns that Peyton is hiding some dark secrets, secrets that may change everything he thought he knew about Peyton."

Now, are you reading for some shenanigans?

1. Exes stink, and everyone knows it. One night, my friends and I decided to dress in all black (like ninjas), and TP (aka toilet paper) our exes' houses. We went to Kroger, bought all the necessities (including shaving cream and Vaseline) and just went nuts. Toilet paper everywhere, shaving cream all over their yards, and if their cars were sitting in the driveway (which they all were), we Vaselined their door handles. Because f you, that's why! - Me

2. Confession: I truthfully wasn’t much of a shenanigatrix in high school. Crazy for my standards was my friend and I used to drive by gas stations and scream loudly out the window to customers, “Hey, have you got gas?” or that time we went swimming in the outdoor fountain at the mall. Yeah, we were pretty hilarious. But there was that one time my parents ever went out of town when I was a teenager and made the mistake of leaving me in the care of another teenager. We threw a wild party, of course, which I almost got away with except for that the neighbor had left a message on my parents’ answering machine that someone was walking on our roof. Oh, and the part where someone drove by as they arrived home and yelled “Great party Friday night!” I just got done being grounded last week. - Robin Reul, author of MY KIND OF CRAZY

3. When I was a sophomore in high school, I had a boyfriend who was a senior. He had access to his dad's cool cars and it was pretty amazing cruising around in them. This particular night, he took one of his dad's MGs. We went to Klode Park, which wasn't too far from my home and parked in the small lot. Things started to really heat up quickly and we fogged the windows. Thankfully, fully clothed...because a police officer beamed his flashlight right into the car and told us to exit IMMEDIATELY! Our community had a 10 PM curfew, though who knew??? We didn't. Unfortunately, the driver's side door wouldn't open and we both climbed out of the passenger side door. It was so embarrassing, especially when my boyfriend had to spread eagle, ya know? Gah, I could have died! Needless to say, we were cured of PDA! - Liza Wiemer, author of HELLO?

4. Does it sound nerdy to say in 9th grade my friend and i took her parents' car out of garage and drove it around the neighborhood and put it back before they came home? - Sasha from Sash and Em

5. Okay, I definitely don't recommend doing this. Times are different! Anywho, whenever I was 17, I went on this school trip to explore Europe. We spent the summer in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland visiting castles, landmarks, and studying their cultures. Well, did you know the legal drinking age in Germany is 16? One night, after all of our chaperons went to bed, a group of us stunk out and went bar hopping. I personally didn't drink (one of us had to be responsible), but my friends did, and we didn't stumble back to the hotel until well after 2AM. The next morning, we had to pack up and move on to the next country, and all of us looked destroyed. - Me

6. I told my parents I was going to church. Then took their car and drive to Nashville for an Aerosmith concert. Grounded for a week. - Miranda Kenneally, author of CATCHING JORDAN

7. There was this one time when I was 16 and wanted to go see this guy I was talking to. My mom was away in Vietnam at the time too, so I decided to sneak out, but my dad was downstairs watching over the house. So there's this balcony part to the house I was living in at the time (it was a row home). I ended up going out that window, going over to my uncle's roof, and jumping down 2 stories into his backyard. He let me out Haha. I think I twisted my ankle a bit, but still walked ok, lol. Hurt my butt like heck tho. Anyways, I ended up meeting him out back and we went bowling and did other stuff together. Later that night I snuck back in thru the front door since everyone was asleep and my mom didn't know until I told her later on. - Vi from Vi3tBabe

8. This is actually one I did in jr high, but I was hanging out with my friends who were freshmen in high school. That counts, right? Moving on, my friends and I bought tickets to see The Blair Witch Project way back when. Unfortunately, neither of us were of age, but Katie's boyfriend worked at the theater. He said he could sneak us in (do they even have people checking your age at the entrance anymore?). When push came to shove, he chickened out, because he didn't want to get fired. My friends were not problem solvers, so I started talking up some random guy. He laughed and knew what I was doing, but he ended up telling the people working the door that we were with him, and behold- movie time! - Me

9. I don't know why we did this, but we randomly sought out fountains around town and decided to jump in and swim in them. We called that night The Fountain Fiasco. - Me

10. I got high for the first time, hooked up with a coworker in the shower, then went up to my work and was lucky I didn't get fired, because I was sitting on the floor laughing like a maniac. I worked at Boston Market. Super classy. -A blogger who would like to remain anonymous (It's not me, I swear!)

That's all, folks!

ABOUT ROBIN REUL: Robin Reul has been writing since she was in early elementary school, when she used to make her own book club flyers for her classmates and then pen them original stories. Though she grew up on movie sets and worked for many years in the film and television industry both as an actress and in motion picture development, she ultimately decided to focus her attention on writing young adult novels. She likes to write the same kinds of stories she loved as a teen: the ones that give her with butterflies in her stomach and are filled with quirky, memorable characters who stay with the reader long after the story ends. When she’s not writing, Robin can be found singlehandedly driving up the profit margin of her local Starbucks and indulging her love of baked goods, particularly those in the key of pumpkin. She lives in Los Angeles suburbia with her husband, son and daughter.

  7. Hi, my girlfriend of a year had a bit broke up with me and went back to her EX-boyfriend. She said our relationship lacked the conversation piece because am a very quiet person and she don't feel loved by me. I felt heart broken and it affected me that i couldn't concentrate properly at my place of work for i very much loved her and need to get her back and my last chance was getting a love spell. I entered on the website and made contact with the Doctor for i read that he has a lot of positive feedback with his spells. I’m not disappointed because my lover came back to me within 24 hours after getting a love spell from the Doctor called Osemu Okpamen. We are happy couples now and if you need any kind of help, Email him on ( or whats-app +2348135254384 ). Michael Snapp, +1 (305) 647-6660 USA.
