A Memory of College

This is going to be a short post as I just want to set the record straight.

I did, in fact, encourage my dorm mates to throw a parking barricade out of the 7th floor of our dorms into a tree.

I was never implicated in the deed, but I was there and did encourage.

There. Now I can go on my way. It has been weighing on me now for 17 years. No one was injured but the sound woke everyone up at 1:00 AM.

At least they didn't interrupt your co-ed clothed showering experiment, determine they couldn't charge the lot you drinking while underage and have to let the whole thing go.

Is this something like a confessional? Perhaps that would be a good QOTD? What would you like to get off your conscience?

I can't believe you did that actually. And here a I thought you were some goody goody.

I am a goody-goody, but, c'mon, throwing a parking barricade out a window is good fun.

K.... I guess you goody goodies have to have some kind of fun. Are you sure you weren't drinking when you did that? Ok, I know you weren't.. I suppose as long as you didn't damage anything it was alright. I suppose you have to get it out of your system one way or the other. I didn't see any reaction from Grandpa yet...

Lucy, I am shocked at the unknown behavior of my first born. I will have to change every one of my church talks about how my first born was such a good son, hardly every doing anything wrong, except beat on his younger brother. Woe is me, woe is me. Then one must think to themselves, " If he did this, and finally decided to reveal it, what else is there, that he hasn't had the courage to reveal yet." Oh my, my, my. We are going to a college football game tonight, I will demand to know it all..........

Grandpa,
My husband confessed to his parents one year that he had blown the garage door center support out one day while playing with a homemade bomb. He had cut a hole in a ping pong ball and filled it with gun powder and inserted a fuse. He wanted to test it and see how powerful it was. Well needless to say, it was powerful. It completely blew out the center support of the garage door. He quickly repaired the support, painted it and no one ever knew about it untill 15 years later. His dad didn't even believe him.
The problem is that my husband has told this story way too many times. I wonder what kind of confessions we will get from our own children later on.
