    Post a fond memory!

    I'll start.

    One day, when I was in college, a bunch of us had spent all day at this outdoor festival. When we got back, we were starving. My roommates and I cooked up a big pot of black beans and another one with seasoned peppers and onions and were going to feed everyone burritos/wraps. But we definitely didn't want to do everyone's dishes, so we just rolled out wax paper across the table and taped it down and everybody ate directly off of the wax paper.

    It was funny - and a little bit disgusting of us - but delightful. AND TASTY.
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    You ask for fond memories and they post pictures. Hrmn.

    The first fond memory that comes to mind is when I tried to kiss my boyfriend for the first time. Yes, tried.

    I was at a gaming convention with him and our hotel rooms were just a few doors down from each other (when hotels book rooms for cons, they keep them all in the same block because we're a noisy bunch).

    After the convention day wrapped up, I went to a mini-party held in one of the suites with Scott and some friends, drank a combination of god knows what kind of alcohol made by someone who fancied himself a bartender, ended the evening hanging out in Scott's room with his room mate. We watched TV, played some cell phone games and generally had a good ol' time being silly nerds. When I decided to turn in at some ungodly late hour, Scott bounced up and offered to "escort" me to my room, a whole 20 feet away. We stopped at my door, I hugged him, and I dove in to make my move with the intent of doing one of those smooth and steamy and HOT unexpected kisses like you see in the movies.

    Well, I was very drunk. As such, my aim was not so good. And I got him in the ear.

    That's right, folks, tongue and all.

    I was so embarrassed that I was like "uhhhhhhhgodnightseeyoutomorrow" and practically FLED into my room. I didn't even open the door all the way, I did one of those things where I cracked it and slipped in sideways so I could get in faster.

    The next day, thank god, he didn't mention it and we proceeded as though nothing had happened.

    We talked about what had happened a few dates later and he told me he thought that I had just become shy and ran off because I got scared from moving too fast.

    Nope, I was just humiliated that I tried to french kiss his ear. Oh god, that was so not smooth.

    Hrmmm.... Two of my fondest memories...

    This should be interesting...

    It was July of last summer and I was at my grandparents house helping them get some yard work done. My grandmother wanted some cow manure to put in the flower beds, so my Pepaw (grandfather) got a trailer piled high with poo. Neither one of them had very good backs, so I put on my old ROTC fatigues and boots and got to work.

    I remember it being ninety-something degrees even in the shade, and I was standing on top of a huge pile of crap talking to Pepaw about what happens if you drop out of high school. And strangely, standing ankle deep in fecal matter was one of the jobs that came up :yim_rolling_on_the_

    The other memory also concerns my grandfather. Its highly simple, but it means more to me than any thing else.

    I had had a hard week my senior year in high school, and I had come to his house crying yet again. I remember he simply grabbed me in a tight hug and didn't say a word. I'm rather short, and I can remember everything down to the scent of the cologne he was wearing. The sound of his breathing always calmed me, especially if we happened to be on a long car ride and I got tired.

    These memories have taken even more importance since he passed away October 16 of last year. Since he became a surrogate father for me after my parent's divorce, he meant a lot more to me than being just a grandparent.

    And I'll stop being all depressed now. For some reason I've posted a lot of negative stuff here on the boards, and I'm normally a cheery person. I shall have to spread cheer now LOL

    quite a few little snippets (kind of like the short story Spin by Tim O'Brian...)

    sitting in my car with my ISTJ and our INTJ friend when we were supposed to be working... we'd pull into a shady corner of a parking lot, roll the windows down and do a crossword puzzle together

    drunkenly arguing the concept of religion with an equally drunk ENTJ friend late at night on the front porch while amicably passing the hookah and bottle back and forth

    laying on my back on the hill behind my parents house at night with my sis as we tried to come up with new constellations out of the stars... her pet chicken occasionally clucking

    going hiking with my best friend in the heat of summer last time she visited... me on crutches and her having just changed to a different climate with severe asthma

    hiking in a strange new backwoods location far off the beaten path with the dog after sunset and hearing a strange low whistle in the brush and then something large crashing through the underbrush in our direction... both the dog and I turned and ran like hell down a rocky cut, across a creek and up about 20 flights of stairs before getting back to the car, where I collapsed against the hood laughing, gave the dog a treat and lit up a cigarette... still laughing

    Aw thank you for sharing that here, WildCard. It's not negative at all. It's really beautiful, and I think it's so cool that you got to be so close to your grandparents. I feel like I could have learned so much from my grandparents, especially my grandpa, but they lived pretty far away from us.




    Pettycure... AHAHA... so painful but so priceless!
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    I have to hear this one at every birthday party, but whatever.

    When I was 6, we were on vacation in a camping place. And next to us were some foreigners, we stayed there for two weeks, during those two weeks, next to me and my brothers tent, there were two elderly people who visited that family that slept in the back of that car for a few nights. I can't remember how I got the idea, but one night I decided to sneak out of the tent, opened the cars backdoors and clicked the child lock on.

    The next morning when we were already having breakfast and the elderly people were waking up, it came with a lot of screaming and banging on the cars windows, followed by me shamefully telling what I had did at the breakfast table.

    PS: The elderly couple were rescued. All is well!
