How old were you when you first flew on a plane?
About 3. Dad got a business trip to LA and the rest of us (myself, Mum and newly born brother) went with and we stayed with my Mum's Aunt.

How old were you when you started finding the opposite sex attractive?
About 11/12 I suppose.

How old were you when you first drank alcohol?
Had the odd taster at younger ages but first proper drink (as in full bottle of beer myself) must have been at 18 I think.

How old were you when you first played tennis?
Played in school holiday programs when I was in primary school so I guess age 9ish and then took up cricket instead. After a few years of trying (and generally failing) to play cricket to any acceptable level I packed that in and concentrated only on football. I started getting really interested in tennis at high school and first joined a school team at age 16 and have been playing ever since then at my local club where I've been a team captain for the last 2-3 years.

How old where you when you first got detention?
Just the 1 at intermediate school (school you got to for 2 years between primary and high school here). It was bulls**t too. A load of us got detention for playing on the sports field in the rain one lunchtime. Yet there was never any notice that the grounds were closed or anything as there usually would be if you weren't allowed on the fields.

How old were you when you learnt to walk?
Mum thinks about 18 months.

How old were you when you had your first kiss?
19.

How old were you when you got your first job?
First had a holiday job at my Dad's office at 17 and I have been back every summer since (and a couple of times mid year during Uni holidays too).

Think that's most of them so far.

First, the ones I've missed so far:

How old were you when you first flew on a plane?
About 2, when we moved to Germany. My sister was only 6 months at the time, so it must have been a nightmare for my mother.

How old were you when you started finding the opposite sex attractive?
Had strange pseudo-sexual urges regarding the opposite sex from about 7. I'm not going to share them here, but I'm sure Freud could have written a paper.

How old were you when you first drank alcohol?
Occasionally wine with meals from about 12.

How old were you when you first played tennis?
I've never played properly - squash was more my thing, though these days the closest I get is swingball.

How old where you when you first got detention?
First detention at 10; first caning at 10; first belt at 12.

How old were you when you bought your first CD?
I was 24 - despite the John Cleese adverts, it took me a while to get into that new-fangled nonsense.
It was a Propaganda album.

How old were you when you learnt to walk?
About 15 months.

How old were you when you had your first kiss?
First serious kiss - 16 (on the lips - serious mouthwork came slightly later Smile).

How old were you when you got your first job?
I had a holiday job at 18, but my first full-time job wasn't until a month before my 23rd birthday (I consider that something of a triumph).

... and the new one How old were you when you first broke a bone in your body?
So far broke my leg at 6, arm at 8, wrist at 16, arm at 36

How old were you when you first drank alcohol?
i dunno, few tastes of wine from my mum and dads glass etc, probably about 15/16 when i started drinking shandy and stuff like that and then moved on the to large blue WKDs at friends house parties. ahhhh those were the days!

How old were you when you first played tennis?
i think i played it a few times in high school during p.e. but let's just say the only sports that i was ever good at were rounders and aerobics and hockey. I got bored too easily with the rest.

How old where you when you first got detention?
i've never had detention because the high school i went to actually believed that i was a good girl who never did anything wrong. HA!

How old were you when you learnt to walk?
about a year old? mum doesn't remember exactly.

How old were you when you had your first kiss?
proper kiss about 15 but i had a few childish pecks on the lips before that.

How old were you when you got your first job?
17, whilst working at wigan and leigh housing on a summer placement scheme which was quickly followed by a job at thorntons (and i still can't stomach the thought of thorntons chocolate to this day! too many hangovers in that shop!)

How old were you when you bought your first CD?
about 10ish when spice girls first came out. God i loved that album (still have it on my laptop actually)

How old were you when you first broke a bone in your body?
I have never broken a bone in my body. One of my best mates, adam, broke my thumb though. He pulled a stool out from under me when i was sat on it in the science classroom and i fell on my thumb and it broke. It would have been funny if my thumb didnt look like a giant aubergine. I had to wear a fake plastic thumb for weeks whilst it healed. I'm still tormented by kids yelling 'thumbs up, beth!' at me lol

Embarassed :p  shocking

I think I'll give this thread a miss.....unless you want questions like how old were you when your family got their first indoor bathroom, (black and white) telly, first car,...etc. And no, I'm not kidding.


I was 5,  7 and 13  in order of those momentous happenings!!

Today's question - How old were you when (and if) you first broke a bone in your body?


Haven't actually broken a bone. Closest was a fractured foot when I was about 12/13 playing cricket. It was very stupid actually. We took a wicket off the last ball of the innings and as we came off the field I ran to celebrate with the guy who took the catch, jumped over a bag and landed on the back of someone's bat. roflmao

Smile I'll answer that one. I was 35. I've broken 15 bones in the last 30 months though. It's called osteoporosis and it's a ruddy nusiance, not to mention putting a kibbosh on mobility..  Crying or Very sad
