What's The Most Outrageous Experience You've Shared With A Friend?



This week’s Tuesday’s Question is: 'What's The Most Outrageous Experience You've Shared With A Friend?’

As stated in my last post, my computer, "Sam" was admitted to the hospital last Monday for minor surgery. I thought I'd have him home in time to publish a question by now, but that didn't happen. -As it turned out I had to pay a few costly repairs before Sam was discharged.- 


I know it sounds goofy to name your computer, but I think I’m technologically advanced or maybe even a visionary, ‘cause Computer Technicians are beginning to remind me of doctors, which makes sense, seeing how computers are the twenty first century's version of the television set. 

One of these days, we'll depend on our Computers Techs. as much as we do our Physicians and Veterinarians, so I decided my computer should have a name, gender, and a tons of personally.

Anyway, that is why I’m publishing my weekly post, ‘Tuesdays Question’ so late in the day a week later, I'm sorry, I apologize for the delay and for missing my blogging buddies posts. -Thanks for your patience.-   

Alright, with that out of the way, all you have to do is answer the following question and feel free to comment to each other. If you have a blog/website I will link your answers back to your blog/website. 

Also, there is a possibility that your answer will be published in a separate post. This is something new, I used to post all comments, but now I've decided to surprise you. Either way, I will link back to your site.    

Alright, if you haven't already left, here's this weeks question again: "What's The Most Outrageous Experience You've Shared With A Friend?" 

Here are a few examples: Something you saw or experienced in public, watched on film, places you’ve been to visit, etc…

The one person in the world who knows your outlandish, wild, free-spirited side is your best friend/friends.- Because they know and love you for who you are.-  

For instance, when I was about thirteen and in junior high school, my best friends’ father referred to me as “Trouble,” instead of “Ann.”

I think great friends find themselves in crazy situations because we share an unconditional love that encourages us to be ourselves. 

If love is the grandest gift ever bestowed upon mankind, then friendship is one of its finest ingredients-

My answer: 

When I was sixteen- In 1977- my father bought me a 1966 Chevrolet Malibu and boy could that car fly. To make a long story short, the city had just finished building a new interstate through Baton Rouge and we were more than happy to try it out, you know make sure it was safe for everyone else. 

Oh, I've never told my son this story, especially when he was a teenager because you would not believe what we did. One of us would sit in the backseat directly behind the drivers seat, then hop on the interstate and punch the wheel to the floor, and I mean literally to the floor. 

Then, when we got a steady speed going, we'd count 123 quickly and switch seats. In other words, if I was in the back, she would slide over to the passenger side, then I would jump in the drivers seat and continue driving. 

Every time I remember us doing that I say a little prayer for us as well as our children who would have never been born if this prank among many others had ended in a bad way. Especially, since we took the future fathers of our children were one many of our trial runs. 

Thank God for large and small miracles. 

Alright, that's my outrageous experience shared with a friend, what is yours?

Well you have to know how fast a car will go. Good one.

Okay, the most outrageous thing I did with a friend was climb all over the Giant Dipper Roller Coaster on the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Click HERE to see the coaster. Now it was after the park closed and a friend of mine and I decided we wanted to climb up the coaster. We did and it was fun. Then we came down to leave and a security guard almost caught us. Scared us to pieces. Not the climbing on the coaster, but the security guard. We got away clean.

Just so you know we never did that again.

Have a fabulous day. Big hugs. ♥♥♥

Thank you Sandee, I'm glad you liked them. And you rock! :)

You're one of the most supportive friends I've ever known, and I sincerely mean it.

You have a fabulous day too, although I'm writing this in the middle of the night. I had a creative moment -like I do sometimes- jumped out of bed to write and just noticed your reply. I do not know how I missed it, so I hope you get to read it.

Motherhood- Courage


Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons

Words-

Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination
