    I love this story! It's so good to be able to sit and chat….and drink….and chat. It's terribly brave of you to even consider getting up to tell a story without a script. I'd be a jibbering wreck. My reckless story – saying yes when my now husband asked me to marry him….the day after we met !!

      Your love story has become one of my all time favorites! The love story of your parents, as well. No pressure on your kids or anything, but . . .

  2. LOL at your chicken nugget story. Are you talking about my life? Oh I have so many good reckless stories. Jumping into the ocean fully clothed at midnight in Hawaii is the one I can think of off the top of my head. Do you slightly embellish your stories?

      Jumping into a body of water fully clothed sounds like a good idea . . . until you have to get out of the water. Eeh.

      As for embellishment, I\’m sure I must. The humble pie episodes really do transpire pretty much as I describe them. Sadly. But there are things like–remember the time I was going to hike Camel\’s Back park with my cousin and I drove up and the hill looked like Everest? I doesn\’t, naturally . . . but in my mind, it truly was spectacular. Ere go, a quick getaway . . . followed by McDonalds. I\’m sensing a theme . . . 🙂

  3. I love this post!! ALL OF IT! I love the idea of Story Story Night. I love that you and your girlfriends were having too much fun to be bothered to leave. I love the thought of what you might say if you did get up there. I love the thought of what I might say. I want to go. I really, really want to go. __As to my reckless story? I have a lot of them. Riding a camel in Egypt to the pyramids was great. I was young – about 18. My camel herder/ guide guy took me off by myself waaaaay away from the crowd, and tried to bully me into giving him a huge tip. It may have been pretty reckless to refuse, but I did. I don't repond well to being bullied. Never have. After a lot of badgering and verbal bullying, he told me to get off the camel. He said he was going to leave me alone in the desert. I told him, "That's fine. I can walk back. And when I get there, I'll be sure to tell your boss what you did." He took me back – on the camel. Without a tip. And, I talked to his boss anyway. ____I think he got fired. Poor schmuck. He tried to bully the wrong tourist.
