As in every other college or university, also here at Graceland, we had high-quality time during our mid-term break. Some stayed on campus, some went home, while some as me and my friends had this crazy road trip to the big cities of the area. I say crazy, because in this kind of trips, where friends of different sexes and ages group together and let the fate chose the flow of their good time, always turns with exciting and funny surprises, some of which repulsive, while the others very pleasant.
In road trips, or just even parties, there would always be persons over 21, who are so funny to watch, especially when drinking, or better say drunk. There is this guy, who suddenly decides that he feels like jogging, and starts running around the neighborhood late after the midnight. This might not be so fun unless he wears a huge Mexican hat which bounces up and down as he throws his steps. What makes this situation even funnier is that past for about ten minutes or so of running, after seeing a gigantic pumpkin in somebody’s garden, decides to pick it up and run with it in his hands.
Now, just imagine people like this in a bathroom, and try to figure out why it takes for so long for them to get out. It’s because sometimes they forget what they’re doing and why they’re there, as they drift away in thoughts. A loud knock is always a good concentration maintainer.
Speaking of drunkards, it is pretty fascinating to see somebody else’s drunk ex-boyfriend catch you in a tiny room while wearing only your colorful boxers. It’s hilarious to watch him take more than 5 minutes of his “precious” time and use it on loud yelling, before he realizes that you are the wrong guy. Luckily guns are partially illegal, otherwise, who knows how that would have ended. In these cases there is always a quick and effective solution: Offer a guy a bottle of bier and some chaw, and he’ll be gone in no time. Bonus points: Compliment his boots and his big truck. Talk about simple topics as corn and cattle. Useful tip: don’t, under any circumstance, use force or common sense while resolving the situation with him, which could be disastrous. Instead, play dumb high school kid.
Fall-break is the perfect time for piercing, tattoos, and other crazy stuff you always wanted to do but were afraid to do it. Now you have your friends “supporting” you by taking funny photos of a two inch nail hanging on your tongue. Before doing anything, just check in advance if you’ll be using your tongue for the next two weeks.
While on a road trip, it is always somewhat refreshing to have a breakfast at 3pm (yes, 3pm, you read it right) at “Hooters”, who by the way make delicious chicken-breast sandwiches. Or maybe not, since it’s just your brain that thinks that way because of all that distraction and stuff. However, an unforgettable experience is to fill ones glass full of hot sauce (when you try this at commons, stir it well until the point where the sauce is completely diluted into the mixture of coke), and challenge them for a drinking competition, where the person who drinks it first, wins. People always drink half of the glass, before figuring out that they are drinking something extremely spicy. You should just see the expression on their angry faces. But you know what’s funnier than that? When, after a while, the person in a attempt to soothe his hot throat drinks from the same spicy glass he drank just a minute ago. Now that’s a thing you want to photograph.
