Wild, Embarrassing Story From my Youth

Okay, first of all, I was not very wild as a youth. At all. I really didn't drink until college and I've never done drugs. I tried pot once, on a cruise, but honestly I was so drunk I didn't feel anything. So, as far as wild stories go, that leaves us with sex. And so I present to you The Time My Girlfriend and I Got Drunk in Vienna and Hooked Up

About a year after I graduated college, a friend of mine (we'll call her Tara), and I went to Vienna with her Art class. One night, we all went out to a wine garden and drank ourselves silly. Then we went to the bar across the street from our hotel and drank tequila shots for a couple hours. Then we went back to our hotel. Somehow, Tara and I got kind of frisky. There wasn't a whole lot to our hook-up, mostly kissing and above the waist petting. We laughed so hard about it the next day.

Heh. Now we're talkin.

I'm surprised you even REMEMBERED it the next day. I've had a few nights in my day where the details remain fuzzy.

I drank a little in high school. Never did drugs (despite the fact that I did have that one exposure to coke). Except pot, which I didn't try until I was way too old to be trying it. It did nothing for me. Then I was told, "Oh, you have to do it a few times before it does anything." That is a lie. I tried it a few more times and still nothing. So I don't see the point. And I never had a sexual experience with anyone of the same sex, so see, you were WAY wilder than I was.

This is awesome. I went to a women's college and stuff like this happened all the time. But somehow once college ended, either that sort of thing stopped or people stopped talking about it. So I'm glad to see at least one person discussing such incidents.

Rock on! Does this story drive your hubby wild? :) Thanks for indulging my request.

I'm the kind of dork that, the very first time I drank, I drank to over excess and ended up puking all over the side of the car of the guy that drove me home. The same guy that didn't wash his car and drove it to school like that the next Monday.

Tessie - well, we did have to kind of "piece things together" the next day. And neither of us ever remembered how things got started!

Shelly said...

jmc - Thanks! You make me feel a lot better!

Shelly said...

jess - see, I kind of wanted to go to a women's college for just that reason! But I didn't want to give up boys, either. heh!

Shelly - well, considering he knew the girl in question, we were dating at the time of the Vienna trip, and I told him about it as soon as I got home, he basically just laughed and was like, "wow, y'all were really drunk!"

Shelly said...

Oh, and Shelly? I'll get you back!

Laura - that is precisely why I did not drink in high school. I was the nerd that everyone made fun of anyway, so if I had gotten drunk and puked on someone's car, I would never have heard the end of it. The first few times I did get drunk, I went to visit friends as far away from home as I could, so that at least the stories couldn't follow me home!
