Oh, I've done a lot of little things, but for me the one that comes to mind is hitchhiking with my then 8 yr old cousin (I was 10) to get to my granparent's and/or uncle's home (they lived next door to each other at the time). We were left at a park during a summer reunion.
Happy ending.... we were picked up by grandparents with 3 young (maybe 5 yrs old) boys and then taken to a police station where we were given... CHOCOLATE! (very special treat back then). I did know my parents phone number (they had to go home because of work) and the police were finally able to contact my Uncle who came and got us.

unfortunately some of the "spontaneous" thngs I've done were really terribly unhealthy and a result of mental illness...However once I was invited to afriend's house in Boston...I was a relatively new driver and had no idea how to find Boston...but I hopped in my car, wearing a skimpy wedding dress (I was not in thewedding party...just an attendee...Went to one friend's wedding then hopped into thecar to go to Boston. No one ever told me that November is FRIGID in Boston...and the heater in my car wasn't working well. I saw some wonderful angels by the road at a rest stop handing out hot coffee...I think I kissed the one who handed it to me. I got to Boston and found out the stories about Massachusetts drivers are all true. Itwas a nightmare of being lost. I finally called my firnd...I was within a block of her house...so she walked out to find me :)
I have two. The first was when I kissed my husband for the first time. I was waiting for a bus to go to a dance with another guy and DH and his friend were waiting with me for the bus and when the bus got there, I kissed him goodbye and got on the bus and left.
The second one that I can think of is when I heard on the radio on a Thursday that Sylvia and Ian Tyson were going to be at a folk festival nearby that weekend and I came home and told DH that we should go and we did. It rained the entire weekend but we had a lot of fun and in addition to the wonderful Ian and Sylvia show, Leahy was also there and they were phenomenal!
