Tacoma NOT Too Serious Game

Funzo Bunzo Time in T-Town

The talk of the blog is that Tacomans might be a little too serious. I suggest a new and fun game:

I have often been accused of taking things too seriously. Perhaps there is some truth to that since I can't think of a thing to write about here. But... I have some great friends who tell some fabulously funny stories. Therefore, I'd like to request that Ann post a story about First Night that might explain one or more of the shots that Kevin posted on his photo blog.

Side note: Could someone remind us all how to post a picture in a comment so that we can post funny pictures also? They need to be saved on Flickr, right?

Here's my story:

I was 13 and all of my friends used to sneak and smoke cigarettes. I, of course, wanted in on the action so my juvenile delinquent act that year was to sneak out of my house at about 2 am to go buy cigarettes at a nearby mini-mart wearing a gorilla mask and long blond wig.

My mother caught us smoking and told me that if I was going to smoke I shouldn't waste my time sneaking but be up front about it. Well that totally ruined it for me and I never smoked again. I do wish I had gotten a shot of myself with the gorilla mask and blond wig.

I am never certain when foolishness will make itself present in my life, as it is a reoccurring thing.

Two examples:
In the third grade I made myself a superhero costume out of rags and old clothes. Not sewn but glued and without adult supervision. At recess I changed into them and ran out on to the playground insisting I was in fact super. I challenged all to two square and dodge ball. No, no one beat me up.

Last year I made up a story about a pirate known as Caballo Gordo of Spain who buried his treasure of gold pressed leaves on an island off of the eastern coast of Mexico. I told my small children that they turned the island into an air strip, scrapping off the top and hauling the dirt out on a barge so as not to pollute the ocean. That dirt was used as fill to create the manufactured plat that our house sits on, and that by using the approximations of his treasure map (to be found on wikipedia) we might be able to find it. I will be getting a cheap metal detector and we will be looking for it this Spring under the swing set.

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Heather. Well, this isn't a fabulously funny story, but it did teach me two very important lessons. I was 17, and rushing to get ready for school after swim practice that morning. I had forgotten my makeup bag, and borrowed someone's eye shadow pencil in a lovely metallic blue (yes, we're talking '70s here). I learned two very important things -- I'm pretty good at reading people's expressions, and no one ever looks good in creamy metallic blue eye shadow.

That pirate story is cool - keep your eye on your credit card in case the youngins' rent a backhoe!

I forgot to pick someone next - I pick Crenshaw Sepulveda for the next story, please ;-)

PS the stories don't have to be funny, just something about you.

Some random information:

At one time I was considered one of the best dressed men in Tacoma.

I am not an artist, but last year a major gallery in Southern California had 40 amazing artists do interpretations of my work.

I wrote 6 months of scripts for professional wrestling and came up with one of the classic grudge matches of all time.

I once was a gaffer's assistant, better known as a "best boy".

There was a time that I couldn't go anywhere in the State of Washington without being recognized.

I'll get back with a Feeder I want to know about later, there are so many.

After CS's entry I think I need a cigarette - very interesting and impressive!
