Former President GeorgeW. Bush was on hand at his father’s presidential library center at Texas A&M University on Tuesday as part of his book tour for his new release, “41: A Portrait of My Father.”

And while he talked politics, and the topic of whether or not his brother, Jeb, should run for president in 2016, the 43rd president also told some personal stories while also making fun of himself.

“Kind of surprised people in parts of our country that I can write, much less read,” Bush said.

But the real gems came when he talked about the times he misbehaved as a child.

When he was 6 years old, “W” was caught stealing some toy soldiers. His dad made him apologize to the store owner.

“There was no harsh follow-up. No, you’re going to be confined to your room. None of that,” the younger Bush said, according to The Washington Post.

Barbara Bush had a much different style, and apparently opted for a bar of soap, even if the offense wasn’t a dirty word.

“One time she caught me urinating in the hedges and washed my mouth out with soap,” Bush said.

We can only imagine it went something like this:
