What's a favorite childhood story about yourself?

My grandfather used to hide in the house when he'd visit us in Japan as kids and I would get so upset when I couldn't find him. Then one of the times we came back to Hawaii to visit, I convinced my parents that we should go to his house and march around the yard and sing the same song he would sing. So we did this at like 5 o'clock in the morning, woke him up and scared him-- his was the best payback ever.
