    5. Like you tried to sit in Barbie's hammock but you didn't quite fit.

    6. Like a funny game where you wear an elastic band on your bum, and you're like, "Look! I turned an elastic band into a pair of knickers, Mum!" and your mum's like, "That's not nice, don't do that. Now go and wash your hands."
