are there any openings on the lunatic fringe?

Really a companion piece to last week's post.  This is another personal favorite from the second worst-night of my life.  Read more here if you didn't previously.

Sweet. I was hoping these would come up sooner than later.

This is still one of my all-time favorite stories. There really aren't many other nights that early in my life that I can remember with such detail. I think it's partly b/c of all the funny shit that happened and partly b/c of the fear that was involved.

I do remember that exact quote though. I was brushing my teeth but could hear the whole thing. It was one of those deals where you're staring into your own eyes in the mirror and you just kind of go numb out of panic. I thought I was screwed since I was the one driving the car and there were scratches all over it from following some a'holes down a "short cut" that involved off-roading in an Oldsmobile.

Funny stuff.

Roy, as a new father, I hope you're taking notes. Luke will need to hear these if he's going to fantasize about sneaking into your bedroom and bashing the bridge of your nose with a Louisville when he's 13.

Yeah, you'd think this kind of stuff would be in the handbook they send you home with from the hospital. I was disappointed not to see "stupid, little" in the index when we brought Phenie home.
