Remember that time when...Week 1

Welcome to a new regular feature "Remember that one time when...." where I will be sharing some random memories of some recent and not-so-recent times.  Most of them will be funny--or at least I hope that I will be able to relay them to you in a funny manner--but this feature will also include some not-so-funny memories.  I imagine this will cover parts of my childhood, high school, and definitely college stories.

I am partly compiling these stories so I remember them and partly writing them to entertain you and give you an idea of my life growing up and in college.  I swear sometimes random things just happen to me.  And sometimes I get a little snookered up and then the stories get really crazy.  But sometimes I am just hanging out with a friend and I see something so strange I think to myself Am I drunk or did that really just happen?, only to realize it really did just happen.

So here goes nothing.

Remember that time when...after a late night out at the bars in Iowa City, I was walking home with my friend Laura-the non-engineering one-and I may have had a little too much to drink.  Okay, let'sbehonest, I was drunk.  I spotted a guy eating a sandwich. And let me tell you, he wasn't just eating this sandwich, he was like making love to the sandwich.  It made it look oh so delectable.  And I had the drunk munchies.  He noticed me staring at him and admiring his sandwich while he was saying "mmm, mmm, mmm".  And since I was running low on inhibitions, I looked at the guy and said, "That sandwich looks soooo good".  And what do you know? The guy offers to give me a bite of his sandwich.  And I was not about to turn that sandwich down.  No way.  So I took a big greedy bite of that sandwich and thoroughly enjoyed that sandwich.  And while I was mmm, mmm, mmming from that sandwich that guy took the whole rest of that sandwich and shoved it in his mouth.  The whole thing.  And believe me that was no easy feat as there was easily 1/4 of a large sandwich left.  Impressive.  Usually I am more of the small-bites-and-savor-each-one kind of girl, but that guy apparently thought good things should be shoved quickly into your mouth.

The lesson here is you never get anything unless you admire it first.

Wait, that's not the lesson you were expecting.

Oh you thought it would be something like "Kids, that's why you never accept candy from strangers."

Um, sorry.  This isn't a blog about important things to teach your kids.  This is about my life.  I'm not even mad I took a bite of that sandwich because it was AWESOME.

Thought for the day
“Girls are like apples...the best ones are at the top of the trees. The boys don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they just get the rotten apples that are on the ground that aren't as good, but easy. So the apples at the top think there is something wrong with them, when, in reality, they are amazing. They just have to wait for the right boy to come along, the one who's brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree...”  -Pete Wentz
