CHRISTINA ADMITS THE TRUTH ABOUT HER ESCARGOT HABIT

I'm the youngest of three daughters. In fact, I was an “oops,” a change of life baby, the kid my parents did not plan. My two sisters are nine and eleven years older, and they’ve always delighted in telling horrible stories about me in my very young years, most of them probably true.

Some of them were cute — for instance, there was Christina and the hoppy-hoppy. Apparently when I was two, my mom checked on me in the backyard, and found me sitting very quietly by the dripping faucet, saying, “Hello, hoppy-hoppy. Nice, hoppy-hoppy.” Fortunately, the hoppy-hoppy was getting a drink and paying no attention to me. Unfortunately, it was a mouse.

Then there’s the disgusting stories — for instance, Christina and the empty snail shell. You don’t need me to fill in the details.

What about you? What really cute, really disgusting, really funny story does your family drag out to tell your boyfriend just about the time he's ready to get serious? And, heck, what stories do you tell for payback?
