    Similar thing happened to me. Except I just opened a can a soda (I was 8ish). The rock flew at me and hit the can and I tilted back for a swig. The can exploded everywhere and I was confused as all hell. Also, the guy cutting the grass stopped looking at me and just drove off.

    That's awesome.

Last time I ever drove drunk in college.
    Similar:

    I was a senior in high school. Me & some buddies consumed a little Everclear then went to a club in Omaha. I was the most sober at closing time, so I got to drive my buddy's car back to Council Bluffs. (His car was a stick, this was my 2nd time ever driving one)

    I didn't think I was drunk at all, but sure enough got pulled over by an un-marked literally right next to Rosenblatt on I-80. The cop did 3 things most people don't believe:
    1) Started with, "Iowa, huh? Almost made it..."
    2) Looked at my passenger & I then said, "I'm not sure which of you is more drunk.." - I took major offense to this one cause I was CLEARLY more sober. The guy I was with could barely keep his eyes open.
    3) Ended by asking, "Do you think you can get it over the bridge & home safe without hitting anything?" Then sent me on my way...

    I was scared **** less that I was going to kill it pulling away, but all went smooth & I had quite the story at school the next day.

    nasty! It definitely wasn't a 12 hour ordeal! But that is probably going to be the first and last time I have a hurricane(s)!

    I met this girl who not only was willing to have secks with me, she was willing to marry me and have kids with me.

    I know, hard to believe, but I swear it's true.

Bradshaw came and ask what we were doing. It was 1:00 in the afternoon. We said we had just got done with School of Infantry training and taking a small leave and going home. He said it was nice to meet us and carried on his way.

    When we went to pay for the bill later. Bradshaw had gave the bar tender 500 bucks to cover us. I might explain that we told him the Marines dropped us off at the airport at 10 a.m and our planes not leave until 11:00 at night. So we told him we were going to pound away at the bar until then and watch some football. I have always loved bradshaw for that and will never forget. Never wanted credit. Just gave the bar tender the money and went away. That was in 1994.

    Re: Friday QOTW-What's something that happened to you but sounds like a lie when told

    I might have told this story before...

    In the late 80's/early 90's, one of the top 40 stations in Chicago would call a random area phone number once an hour (like 8a - 6p) and if someone answered, the DJ would ask "What's your favorite radio station?" Give the station call letters, you win $1,000.

    So one summer afternoon when I was 12, I'm in my room, just reading a book. The phone rings, and I run downstairs, just curious to see who it is. I hear my mom repeat "What's my favorite radio station?", and I come jumping into the kitchen "Say Z95! Say Z95!" We won $1,000, and I got a fairly cool electronic keyboard out of it.

    I guess the other story is that my husband fell over the left-field wall at Rosenblatt during the CWS in '99 between innings...stone cold sober.

    Re: Friday QOTW-What's something that happened to you but sounds like a lie when told

    Decades ago I was on the phone calling a high school buddy and his little sister answered. Before she could get her brother on the line a huge lightening strike hit VERY near our house and startled me enough that I pulled the phone away from my ear. Next thing that happened was “ball lightning” about the size of orange came out of the phone receiver and danced crossed the kitchen before quickly fading. It was a basic WTF moment before folks called stuff like this WTF moments.

    Re: Friday QOTW-What's something that happened to you but sounds like a lie when told

    I'm kind of a smart *** at work, and my boss is a female.

    The heads were looking for a couple people to promote to manager. I'd heard through the grapevine I was one of the people that would be promoted.

    So, my boss comes walking in, and gives the head nod to go to her office and goes "Cubs, can I have a sec?"

    Not really thinking, I said "I'll give you all the secs you need."

    She said "Just a moment." And I didn't see her the rest of the day.

    Found out a year later that I wasn't promoted because she thought I was expecting a little something when going to her office.

    Similar, but I wasn't up for promotion.

    Boss: Got a sec?
    Me: I have all kinds of secs....

    One time on a dare I finished off Jim Walden's beer that he left behind in a restaurant. Easiest $5 I ever made.
