Truth or Dare

How many times have you played this and it’s got a bit risqué? In all reality it’s for kids isn’t it? I’ll leave risqué to the young adults. Even so, do you remember the excitement when you finally had the chance to ask Sally-Jo how many times she’d kissed Jim-Bob and then dared her to kiss you 😀 (yes I know 1950’s American names, just thought they sounded better than Arthur and Agnes). Then of course Jim-Bob dared you to ask Sally-Joe if she would be your date and ole’ Sal blushed and looked at you with those big brown eyes and your heart fluttered. Of course there was the time when Jim dared you to challenge big Gunther to a fight and an hour later you were in the emergency room with that broken arm 😜.

Is it sad that as we get older some of us lose that daredevil but naive attitude, in exchange for cynicism, because we have been let down, deceived, disappointed, manipulated and hurt? Maybe we should remember those days more often. When life was simple and all you had to worry about was whether or not you were going to get a kiss 😀

    Big Gunther sounds terrifying, Charlie! 🙂
    I don’t think I ever played Truth or Dare as a youngster. I do remember ‘spin the bottle’, which was a terrifying thing for a girl of twelve who’d never been kissed..
    And yes, those days of naivety got lost somewhere between pubescence and young adult… Would I ever want to return to those days? Not on your nelly… 🙂

    Hahah love the Sally-Jo and Jim-Bob example! Totally agree though, it’s sad we lose that carefree attitude where worries and concerns were on the simpler things rather than tainted by stress and cynicism. Even at 30, I feel I lost that attitude for fun and naivety a long, long time ago. What would you ask someone if you were to play Truth or Dare today? I’m curious!!

    Remove the lens of perceptions gathered through experiences and live life fresh and new everyday. Do wish it could happen as simply as it sounds 🙂

    Oh yea, I remember playing. LOL. The older I got, the more inappropriate the truths and dares became. LOL. Great post, Charlie.

  8. It’s a pity we can’t pick and choose which bits we keep. I’d like to have kept the naive and daredevil attitude, and possibly the hair, and the knees…

    No too bothered about the teenage angst, the spots and the useless advice from parents.

    Great post. Really brought it all back to me. The lost days of youth. 🙂
