not really earth shattering but one of the most embarrassing moments in my life, that makes me cringe and shake my head every time i recall it, was a date in college. really cute girl, one of a pair of identical twins who cut quite the figure around campus: I didn't have any money. like, no money. I had about $30 and none of my pals had any cash to lend me, so i dug into my laundry drawer and pulled out about $15 in quarters. The bill came to like $38 and I had to pay the last $8 with that pile of fucking quarters. there was no second date.

It's extremely hard to narrow it down to just one. Off the top of my head, this is definitely in my top ten:

Drove my first real car (a 1973 Dodge Dart) over a dirt bike jump at 50-60 mph. Was really cool for about half a second, and then we landed. A passenger in back, who couldn't get his seat beat on in time, hit the dome light so hard it broke and he gashed his head. Needless to say, I also jacked up the frame pretty badly.

DUI. Most of the time though, it is getting out of bed and presenting myself to the world.

Seconds before a chorus performance in middle school I was flipping a nickel into the air while talking to a group of friends. Just as they were walking away and the conductor was taking his place in-front of the choir I managed to get one last flip off which resulted in the nickel becoming stuck in my throat. I then jumped onto the ground in-front of 2,500 people grasping for breathe until some allied health student could perform the heimlich maneuver on me.

This is really dumb..but I was involved with a girl(was gonna propose) and her brother was in town and a bunch of us went out and had dinner and drank. At the end of the night, it was 4 of us(her/me/her bro and his girl) and he asked if I felt that there would be an age issue if we lived 2gether/got married(5 yr age diff!) I got upset and sorta yelled/argued at the dude(we got that question alot.) That 1 arguement was the end of our almost 3 yr relationship!
Oh...and my felony state and federal convictions!

Decided to race somebody on the freeway at 3am on a Wednesday while driving home, slightly intoxicated, from a party pretty far from my house. Drunk driving was a stupid decision in and of itself, but racing while drunk driving was just compounding the stupidity exponentially. I ended up skidding, swerving off the freeway, crashing through the guard rail, and taking a 10-foot nosedive into the bushes and trees below. Car was totally wrecked beyond repair. I was unharmed by some sort of miracle. Cops showed up, breathalyzed me, and I got off the hook by about .01 points on the blood alcohol level count. A series of miracles basically prevented it from being the worst day of my existence. And, while I'm not a religious man or even a believer of any kind, I took it as a serious lesson to be a heck of a lot smarter about the way I was leading my life.
