    This kid has style.

    The first time I ran away from home properly I was 10, I took a pound of butter (dont ask or speculate) and a farm dog. I managed a day and night on the run before I was caught.

    Did you run away from home. What did you take? How long before you were recaptured? How old were you?

  3. When I was 13 I dug a burrow in a fir plantation on the fringes of Dartmoor and lived in that for a week. Great fun, until it rained and the packet soup started to run low. Went back home and my Dad said, 'I was hoping you'd drowned.'

    At six I ran away. I stopped on the way in the kitchen at stupid o'clock, took a swig of the milk before going out and discovered the milk had gone sour. I went back to bed.

  7. Didn't Tony Blair claim to have stowed away on a plane to America ?
  8. Don't know, but the cunt ought to be first on the standby list for some Extraordinary Rendition.
  9. I was forever escaping from home, travelling miles and miles on my youthful adventures for up to weeks at a time...

    Or so I thought. It just happened to coincide with the introduction of 'Care In The Community'.

  10. I sometimes wish I could run away from home.

  11. Now's your chance!

    See you at the end of the road at 9 tonight.

    Bring all your credit cards and a good sleeping bag (it can be cold in the woods these nights).

    PS I'll bring the spade.
  12. And I will bring the Transit or failing that walk out the door lock it and leave simples
  13. I used to disappear from home for weeks at a time when i was sixteen. I lived rough and dangerously becoming involved with guns and institutionalised violence and bullying. Apart from that being at IJLB wasn't all bad.

    Are you people on drugs or what? Up to the age of 16 when I left to join the pirates I had me dear auld Mam, me Na-Na and two of me Mams sisters both of whom had daughters roughly my age. I only ran away to join the pirates because I discovered I was gay. Otherwise In would still be there. Dressing up in girls clothes and playing at being girls.
