Consumating's Question of the Week

So we met on the internet. Now we need a cover up story. What crazy tale do you tell people about how we met in real life?



my friend dragged me out to see a cover band at the local hotel. he walked in late, wearing a bright pink wig, and went straight to the dance floor, while i continued to pound beers on the sideline, getting a good laugh out of his wild antics.

the band broke into a talking heads song and i reluctantly followed my friend out on the floor where we preceded to sandwich-dance the pink-haired boy until last call.

he didn't ask for my number and i went home a little disappointed about it. but the next morning he called and asked me out for the next weekend.

and that was that.

Consumating's Question of the Week

What is the craziest thing you've done at the office?



when i was 16, i was a lifeguard at the local college. the first weekend i worked, i alone had to supervise 50 or so high school boys who were there for a football camp. not a single one of them swam in the pool. all they did was belly flops. too timid, to ask them to stop, i let them talk me into judging the contest.

this, obviously, was crazily stupid not crazily fun or exciting. for, not only were most of these boys twice my size, but it turns out i didn't really know all that much about first aid or CPR.
