| Summer '96 or '97
The very first one of these I ever did. I'm still not very sure on the date. I was due for a checkup at the dentists office, and this time I actually wrote about it, and the weird things the doctors do in there.
This was an E-mail I sent to a bunch of people just as a hello and a happy Thanksgiving, I suppose. No particular reason. And I was also wondering: Why turkey?
It was Josh's Birthday party, and all of us smart alecks were having a little trouble with the Bus Drivers. It eventually worked out, but it was hell through the rest of it, and kind of pointless, in my opinion.
Now, I am usually not a sports person, but I kind of was a couple of years ago. I've sort of grown away from it, but this was before then. This was a Super Bowl Party we had at Nate's House. This is also the writing where I start developing a fun style with writing these. Definitely one of my best.
At this time, I wasn't very patriotic, so this was sort of a mock patriotism thing for my Fourth of July Experience of going to see fireworks. Believe or not, this is all true, even the part about the explosion. Most people don't believe me.
Whenever my friends and I get together most anywhere, we have fun and get crazy. This is just a short thing about an outing with me and my friends to the Movie Theater.
Josh, Nate and I have a small garage band that plays at public events, school talent shows, parades, etc. This was the first time we had done a private party, much less a Halloween Party for an in-crowd person. Cool.
Josh's Dad is the manager at Alden Vineyards, which is commonly known as The Ranch. It's an enormous place full of vineyards, trails and wilderness. Josh and I sometimes go there, steal one of the 4 Wheelers and drive around exploring. He doesn't even know the whole place, it's so big.
Now, getting a subsitute for a class is no big thing for a student. I'm not one of the kids who terrorize subs for the fun of it, but when you're attacked the least you can do is defend yourself. If that sounds like an excuse, read the thing first. It's just crazy that people like this even exist.
I don't go to school dances a whole lot, and this was the first one I'd been to since 7th Grade. I have to say that it was a lot more fun than I remember, and much different.
