Friday Late Morning Interactive Storytime

While at dinner last night, we somehow got on the subject of how you were young, someone called you something or said something to you that you had no idea what it meant at the time, and probably wonder if they did too.

For example, when I was in third grade, I was sitting at my desk and I turned to my side to look at the teacher or something. I was wearing a skirt at the time and didn't know that there were ways you can sit in pants that you're not supposed to sit in skirts. Jon Litwenitz, classmate, says to me, "close your legs! It smells like tunafish!" Bewildered, I closed my legs. I didn't know what that had to do with tunafish but other people were laughing. Something tells me that they, and Jon too for that matter, really didn't know why either.

One of the other girls at the table last night told the story of how in sixth grade, during the era of feathered hair, she got a perm that she says left her hair in tight poodle-esque curls. The other girls in her class called her a "lesbian" as a result. She said that at the time she had no idea what a lesbian was, and once she learned, she wondered what in the hell a perm had to do with being a lesbian.

It's Friday...anyone bored? Got a better one?

You know that game that is played in places called "alleys" that was an integral part of The Big Lebowski, that Chris Rock described as "a game where you use a black ball to knock over white pins with red necks"?

Poll #46314 It's a SPORT!
