The theme for today is "Drop"....
Story from Freshman year of college:
I attended Hendrix College in Conway, AR. I had a lot of crazy friends in college. On this particular evening we had been sitting around the dorms drinking as usual...getting pretty buzzed. Someone had dared someone else to go streaking. Not just streaking....as on campus...which wouldn't have been so strange, (Streaking was known to go on occasionally around our school) but streaking in a business establishment in town.
We all started in on him as soon as we heard the dare. He was to streak through The Food For Less. Rules had to be applied... It was to be full nudity, he could not run in the door and then turn around and run back out. He had to run all the way from the "In" door across the front of the store to the "Out" door. We promised to be there waiting with the car door open and motor running to make a quick get-a-way. In his inebriated state, he agreed.
He stripped down to his boxers and we loaded up in two cars. Arriving at the "Food for Sex", "Food for Free"...I mean Food for Less.. half of us went to watch.
My friend's boxers dropped and he ran into the store screaming and dancing like a crazy fool.
He kept shouting "I'm from UCA!"(the name of the state school across town from our private school) grabbed handfuls of nuts from the huge nut bins at the front and throwing them up in the air.
It was quite a sight to see. He managed to make it to the exit doors and everyone involved made a clean get-a-way.
He never did get his boxers back. Me and a couple of others confiscated them, cut them into little strips and passed them out to everyone who was involved in the incident. We wore the little strips tied around our shoelaces....corny I know, but it was a way we bonded as new students in a strange new world. Whenever we saw someone with the littel blue and white strip tied on the shoe we could nod and smile...having a little secret to share.
