From the “Doesn’t This Happen To Everyone?” Department:
Hmm, you would think I would have gotten used to “going to get stitches” since it happened to me so often. Also, I sense a bit of a continuity problem between “being in bed” being a safe thing and “being alone at night” being a scared thing, given that when I was in bed I was alone. (Oh, wait, that was when I was in college … when I was little, I always had my stuffed animals to keep me company.) And finally, this is clearly from before we all knew how dangerous “playing outside” is; I never wore a helmet, and I didn’t carry pepper spray OR a GPS tracking unit so I could be found after being abducted. Whew, dodged a bullet there.

So ‘they’ are as much into ‘health and safety’ in the U.S as ‘they’ are in the U.K eh? How did any of us survive childhood?
Well of course that is before we knew that being outside was so perilous. I kind of miss the gene pool thinning days of no helmets and bows and arrows.
I thought it said “Getting stickers” … I’m glad the text cleared that up for me.
Hey I have to side with Ross on this one. I thought stickers too. You must have pretty mean stickers in Califoria
