Ok, this is the first thing that popped into my mind, maybe because I associate this game now with teen chat and this happened to me in high school. Remember those big wooden clogs we wore in the 70’s? Well, I was wearing a pair of those and a ‘pheasant dress’. When one day at school I feel asleep in class, actually I did that a lot, just this day I got caught. The school I went to was old, had hard woods floors and everything echoed for miles through the hallways. I’d fallen asleep with my legs crossed. Suddenly I was awakened by a teacher saying, ‘Come with me’. I was startled and got up quickly not realizing that one of my legs had also fallen…completely asleep. Down I went, me and my wooden clogs hit the floor with complete surprise. I quickly attempted to get up, still groggy and not realizing the problem with my sleeping leg. Down I went, again. The sound still echoes in my head and maybe even through the halls of that school. Finally able to hold myself up with the support of my desk, I hobbled out of the room. I was mortified. No one knew why I had suddenly collapsed to the floor…twice, so the rumor began that I must’ve had a ‘flashback’ (it was the 70’s, forgive me) and before I knew it my embarrassment was replaced by becoming a cult hero in my freak friends eyes.
I love to tell stories, thanks for asking!
BTW, PdV...your poem was hilarious!
