I found myself daydreaming about the good ol' days. You know, the days you did some silly, crazy stuff that you wouldn't dare do now. (but it was fun!)
Here's a couple I remembered today:
The birthday cake
Once, a few friends decided to throw a last minute surprise birthday party for another friend. So we bought a cake at the grocery store on a whim. You know, the kind with the vegetable shortening greasy icing that leaves a film on your mouth (like Crisco)? Well, someone had the grand idea that when birthday boy came into the kitchen, we would smear icing on his face so we each put icing on our fingers. The smear quickly turned into a full blown cake fight and all of us were covered with the greasy, sticky stuff. The weird thing was that someone realized how cool it would be to take off running and "slide" across the hardwood floors since we were all so well greased. Needless to say, the place was trashed and we spent a lot of time and $$$ buying grease cutting cleansers to clean it up.
Even before the days of Meridian in the hammock , at yet another party , one of our friends had the wild idea to see if they could spin one of our other friends around in a hammock without that person falling out. Of course, there was much discussion about speed and force the hammock would need to provide the anti-gravity effect. Well, you guessed it...a couple of big swings and *plop*, our friend dropped like dead weight right out of the hammock and fell flat on their side. After a few moments of silence and shock and ensuring our friend was okay, all of us just started busting out laughing because we couldn't believe we had been so incredibly stupid.
So, what are some stories you have that you can't believe you did or lived to tell about?
