Six random things about me-

1) When I was ten a friend's mom stabbed me in the ass with a pitchfork. she had a bit of a drinking problem.

2) On a date in high school I once drove my VW Rabbit into a puddle so deep it killed the engine. We had to wade to shore.

3) I love cashews.

4) My favorite gift as a child was the "Gunfight at OK Corral" game where you shot marbles at your opponent's little man, trying to dislodge his little gunfighter. I wanted this so badly and was overjoyed when I got it.


5) When visiting some buddies in the seminary they took me on a tour of the secret antiquities stored there. Besides the gold crosses and saint's bones they had a collection of the preserved carcasses of deformed animals (two-headed calves, etc.) that would make Ripley proud.

6) While getting married and having kids is up there on the list, I still consider the greatest day of my life the time my friends and I began drinking early in the morning and went on a joyous, crazy bender that included breaking into the zoo and facing down a cop.

I share the love with...

Lockwood
Liberality

Randal (of course.)

So.

Any chance of a post of the story behind item one?

No?

Dang.

First, you bastard. Second, I'd like to second Arkonbey, secondly. #2 is also very comical, I remember #4!, it's a shame you don't have any pictures of #5 (who doesn't love human bones and malformed animals?) and #6 might get you killed if Mrs. Wormer ever stumbles over this post, though I must applaud your truthfulness. The getting married was fine, but man, that was kind of a long day.

I gotcher 6 pack right here. I was thinking of tagging you six times, but figured you wouldn't really take it seriously. And if you did you might then tag me back 36 times. Wouldn't be prudent at this juncture.

Arkon-

Maybe someday. There are deep psychological scars, as you might imagine.

Actually- I don't really remember what prompted her to chase us out of their basement with the pitchfork and stab me. We'd been swimming and were still wet but I really just write it off to the drinking.

Randal-

That's the thing about having kids as well as marriage- there's a ton of stress involved which sort of takes away from the enjoyment of the moment. Still wonderful experiences but also worrisome.

My "lost" day sticks in my head as about 18 hours of unrestrained joy.

Lockwood-

Why are you reminding me of Dana Carvey at this moment? :)

Liberality said...

Did you ever date that girl again who helped you with the VW? And a pitch fork? What did your parents say about that?

Dean Wormer said...

Liberality-

Of course. What girl could resist a guy that made her get all dressed up then slosh through mud?

:)

I didn't tell my parents and hid the resulting injury until I was well into my thirties when I mentioned it in passing and my mom freaked out, which was pretty funny.

Zaius-
