this might be a shout out


Another list/post inspired by the genius of Que Sera Sera. I have some friends with stories that basically define their personalities, or at least, the window through which I see them. The story that I'll shamelessly say "Okay, so tell me about that time that you...." over and over again. Particularly if I haven't seen them in a while, or if I'm introducing them to someone new. This includes stories for which I was present, and stories that I've heard so often that I could recite them verbatim, leading to frequent interruptions to correct minute details.
Such is the life. You're all saints, kids.

  • Rachel - "That time your dad got lint on his pants and made the Zimbabwean tour guide pick it off."
  • Streets - "That thing you overheard at Coffee & Co."
  • Beav - "That time Ben got in a fist-fight with a turkey."
  • Bale - "That time you fell in love with the heir to a tea dynasty"
  • Jordon - "That time you refused to get an ashtray" OR "That one time you studied Howl and NPR at Dal."
  • Barbeau - "That time it was your birthday and you had to go to the bank really quickly." OR "That time we saw MO. [in the Biblical way]"
  • Tee Eff - "That time you saw Bran Van 3000 and told them they were the future of hip hop."
  • Scheidt: "That time you had fleas at the apartment."
  • Dorian - "That time you guys stole those boxes from Steve and he went to jail"
  • Emmy - "That time the ferrets were running all over you" OR "That time we snuck in the backdoor at the Horseshoe and met the Gords."
  • Carleigh - "That time you saw Chingy."
  • Zeb - "The border crossing when you ran for the woods" OR "That time the car broke down in South Syracuse"
  • Colin - "That time you stole the school bus"
  • Meghan - "That time you bro'd down with John Tory at Little Shop of Horrors" OR "That time you wished you knew he was on ecstasy."
  • Kate - "That time that guy's mom thought you were his ex-girlfriend when you were peering in his windows and started yelling 'It's okay, Sarah!' when you and your friends ran away."
Tell me more, tell me more.
