THINGS I’VE DONE IN MY LIFE (FOLLOW-UP FOR TINA)
« H » Dave’s Thoughts On :: Crazy Dave :: email link

So Tina wanted an explanation for the following things that I’ve done/not done in my life…..
46. Take an ice cold bath.
Numerous times in the Navy after a night of drinking, I took one of these to wake up….

53. Adopt an accent for an entire day.
When I was a kid, I had a female friend and we would get in these weird moods and carry on the ENTIRE day like that. Another example was “reverse day” where we said everything backwards. Fun of lots was it.

73. Stolen a sign.
In high school, right before leaving for The Navy, a couple of my best friends and I tore down some street signs to be funny. Got home and my dad was royally pissed. Refused to let us bring them into the house so we took them downtown and set them outside the courthouse.

88. Caught people having sex in a public place.
While in junior high, my class took a little tour of a local zoo. One of the back rooms had its door closed and me, being the curious guy I am, headed to THAT room with a buddy. Found a couple of teenagers getting their freak on. This was right before I had really gotten interested in girls, myself.

93. Posed nude in front of a room full of strangers.
The Navy is notorious for hazing. (No really!) One of the things they loved to do to the FNG on my ship was to steal their towel while they were in the shower (this was one of the kinder things they did). Someone thought it would be funny to do that to me, after I’d been on the ship for awhile. I’d been on long enough that I’d seen plenty of FNG’s arrive so I didn’t feel that I warranted this stupid prank. I marched my naked ass into the berthing’s break room (we were out to sea) and refused to leave my post in front of the television until someone fessed up to having my towel. They fessed up relatively quickly because the guys in the room were a hell of a lot more interested in what was on tv then they were interested in the tree trunk hanging between my legs!

97. Played in the mud.
When I was a teenager, 14 or 15, there was a huge gospel concert in Milford called “Love-Fest”. It was a good time, really. Well, one of the years I attended, it rained so hard that it looked almost like WoodStock, as far as mud goes. My buddies and I met a couple of girls and we raced around and slid all over the place, looking horrid after it was all over with. Caked with mud, we were.

141. Met someone famous.
See the previous answer to #97. I met the rap/rock group DC Talk there the following year, when I worked backstage. I also, as a young kid with my dad, met the Nebraska Cornhuskers coach, Tom Osborne. He was a really nice guy and for the next 5 years, everytime a Husker game was on my parents would say “Hey Dave!!! There’s your buddddddddyyyyy!!!” Dude probably doesn’t even remember meeting me, he he he.

218. Gotten kinky in a bar.
I suppose I should leave this one alone. If you are really THAT curious, stop by The Wife’s Blog and badger her about The River City Brewing Company and Ludacris. Rock ME!!!! (#218’s answer will prolly get me in some trouble, he he he he)
