Have You ever run away from home?

Have you run away from home after a fight or something? How long did you wait until you returned home again?

No, but I thought about it when I was younger.

Re: Have You ever run away from home?

I used to threaten my Mom that I would run away and she would say; "Bye......there's the door."

As if she really didn't care. I never did.

Re: Have You ever run away from home?

When I was little, I put stuffed animals and crackers in a bag and hung out behind a tree for a while.

And then my parents told me that there were snakes back there, so I never tried it again.

I feel like running away from my miserable apartment.

Re: Have You ever run away from home?

i ran away from my family on holidays in spain once cos they wouldn't let me play pool. hahaha i was gone 4 like an hour and went back to the hotel room, they never even thought of looking 4 me there. clever ppl.

How many times must we of shot nerves witness the undoubted pain & suffering of muppets everywhere before we stand up against the cavemen??

One muppet, who wishes to remain anonymous, has this to say: "You know, I uhhhh cannot stay all the time at the you know, base of the line. Too much uhhhh pression."

It is your turn to help - The "Save A Muppet Foundation" needs you!

Re: Have You ever run away from home?

When my sister and I were 6/7? a guess--we left home.. We took with us (supplies): 2 cartons of orange juice & a large orange blanket. We crossed over the road, into some woodland near our house, and made a makeshift tent. Couple of hours later--home bound.

Re: Have You ever run away from home?

Me and my neighbour ran away when we were like 7. We went and sat in the park for an hour and then we ran out of vegimite sandwhiches so we went home.

I may have threatened to, but I dont think I ever did.
