I have to tell you what I read in the newspaper tonight. A man in a wheelchair was at a gas station.....and somehow, obviously when he was going in front of this 18 wheeler his wheelchair handles got hooked onto the grill of the 18 wheeler! The 18 wheeler must have been getting ready to pull out and didnt know the wheelchair was hooked on to the front!!! So the man in the wheelchair got quite a ride till someone called the police!! The police said they thought it was a hoax until they seen it going down the freeway. I guess the man was belted in the wheelchair, otherwise Im sure he would have fell out. And no..it wasnt the Enquire..although it does sound like one of their stories. It was our local newspaper, even though it didnt happen around here. What a hoot that would have been to see that coming down the highway! I bet the guy in the wheelchair had to change his pants when that ride was over...hehe.
I remember when I was a teenager, and my friend had an older sister who was away at College. We always thought she was pretty worldly.When she would come home for the occasional weekend we would always try to hang around with her. At night when it was real late she would ride us on the hood of the car! One if us would get on the hood and hang onto the windowshield as good as we could and she would drive all over town! Can you imagine? If one of my kids would have done that I would have grounded them till they were 35. If my parents ever found out I would have been grounded forever!
I had a friend who had a small car...I think it was a fiat. He used to ride us girls around town late at night and he drove on all the sidewalks! We would laugh and cheer him on! Now I think how dumb was that?
Another thing we did was climb the fence to the public pool and swim naked! It was all girls! I would have been in so much trouble though. But I was always game for it!
One of my girlfriends Father had a girlfriend. (We didnt know that part then). He would say he was taking us to practice our driving and then he would stop at this bar and get out ( where obviously his girfriend was) and let us take the car! We, with no drivers license!.....of course we thought he was the neatest for letting us take the car. (Another thing my parents didnt know about.) The funny thing is when my friend found out her Father had a girlfriend she went to confront him about it ( her Mother and Father were not divorced, or even split up). She went into this place and he and said girlfriend were having a spaghetti dinner.....my girlfriend argued with her Father and then picked up one of the plates of spaghetti and dumped it on the girlfriends head! Then she ran to the car and locked the doors and took off! Can you imagine how much we giggled over that one?
I guess there are just some things your parents dont find out.....and while you thought you were just lucky you didnt get caught...you didnt realize you were lucky you lived through it!!! Now I kinda wonder how many things my kids have done that I havent found out about!
