‘What is one childish thing you still do to this day?’ 19 relatable trips down memory lane
Not many people cast off every habit they picked up as a child. It might be how they shove their pyjamas under the pillow each morning or stuff a sock in each shoe when they get changed at the swimming baths. Perhaps less hygienic things involving fingers and noses.
u/RepresentativeFast97 got curious about people’s childhood hangovers – not like that – and asked Reddit this question.

The responses were quite endearing and sometimes a little relatable.
We get a lot of deliveries at my workplace, so I like to hide in the larger boxes and then jump out to scare my colleagues.
(I’m a medical professional).
Make faces at myself in the mirror.
I still stand on the back of the shopping cart and kick-scoot it like a scooter up and down the aisles while grocery shopping. I’m nearly 50 years old.
I had a comfort blanket as a kid, sometimes the lining of a coat pocket feels just like it so I walk around rubbing it like a comfort blanket.
Run away from the darkness when I turn off lights.
If there is some bubble wrap around, I’m popping that shit!
The other day a delivery came with a sheet of bubble wrap about 3 metres long. I laid it along my hallway and danced a jig across it.
If my feet can’t touch the ground while I’m sitting I’m definitely swinging my legs.
Take out my toy lightsaber and pretend to be a Jedi.
May the Force be with you.
