    It Was a Set-up!

    Several years ago I was at my desk taking lunch at work with some co-workers and customers nearby. I'd gotten a 1/3 lb bacon cheese burger with the works.  I took a bite and something wasn't right. It was as if I'd bitten into a tough piece of gristle or a really...

    I Shot Myself With a Rubber Band...

    More than once I have shot myself with a rubber band. When my brother and I were younger, we use to shoot them back and forth to each other, and often times, I would shoot myself instead of him, which totally sucked! But hey, you live and learn! BroknWings

    I Didn't Know How

    For the longest time, I couldn't figure out how to hit people with a rubber band. You know, when you have it around two fingers and then you take one part and snap it against someone's leg or arm? Well, I could never  figure out how to get back at my friends for hitting me...
