"I climbed a tree once!"

ExtraMedium went on a bit of a rant said

I never told you guys about the first time I went camping with classmates in high school. About 100 people showed up for this massive overnight party at the lake near our hometown. Some kids tried to use paint cans as fuel to start a fire, which upset some folks, and fights were breaking out left and right. In the middle of the growing tension, while guys were yelling obscenities and insults at each other, a kid screamed at the top of his lungs, “I climbed a tree once!” Not sure if was code for something or an inside joke I missed, but everyone just fell silent for a second and then had a good laugh. I guess they figured out how FOOLISH they looked. The night went on from there more like a family get-together with music and laughs. The most fun you could have for $5 on a campsite reservation.

True Story. Small town life in Texas. These days I yell out that same mantra when two people start arguing around me. Doesn’t always work, but it’s worth a shot and fun if only for the looks you get.

I’m off work today but I wanted to share that since it popped in my head when I woke up. Hope you guys are enjoying checking out the deals and maybe managing to catch an IRK or some other treat.
