» I witnessed a crime

One Friday night, on the last train home...
I stepped in to prevent one suited, middle-aged commuter stealing an iPod from a slightly inebriated younger man.
The would-be thief went for me. A scuffle ensued, the train was stopped, and all the men present swung wildly and inaccurately at each other.

I couldn't sit and watch someone be robbed without trying to do something, but was left feeling that it hadn't been worth the bother. The idiot drunk wasn't grateful in the slightest, and the c√ľnt in the suit had tried to punch me, a girl.

Train driver didn't give a toss about the mass brawl, and everyone got off to avoid the police. All for a nano.

But once I'd stopped shaking, I felt a little bit proud.

» Your first cigarette

Aged thirteen...
...I hosted a sleepover. In the morning, with parental approval, we went for a healthy walk in the woods. In my pockets? Cheap French lager I'd taken from the fridge, sellotape, teabags and white A4 paper.

Standing in the mud in Epping Forest attempting to construct a fag from the above ingredients (minus the beer) wasn't particularly easy, and neither was trying to inhale the acrid smoke without getting our faces burnt. See, we hadn't quite managed to get the thing to smoulder and all the tea fell out anyway, so picture four girls passing round a flaming mess of paper and sticky tape.

Incidentally, 75% of those present at the time now smoke habitually, though I doubt they're trying to recapture the magic of that first puff...

» Phobias

Wasps, my father, foreigns...
Wasps: I make involuntary whimpering noises and try to escape. They buzz around my horrified, gurning face and I inevitably slap my own head in a vain attempt to make. them. go. away.

Father: makes eating noises that cause me to want to hit him with a pitchfork.

Foreign people: emit loud noises, and dress inexplicably. Make too much eye contact on the tube, get in my way. They make me do angry, shouty things, then I panic and worry that I'll get caught.

» How nerdy are you?

Wasted youth...
For several years I dated a computer programmer / D&D fan / all-round geek.
He was almost as tedious as the majority of the answers this week.

Of course he earns a fortune now, and I'm single.
