Spring Break Memories

Sat Dec 07, 2002 8:49 am

OK, it's cold out here, temperature went down to M13 last night, and while I like the holiday season, I also can't wait unitl the 26th when I'll be sitting on the beach, drinkin' Mai Tai's (as one of my former instructor liked to put it).

And now Leezyjet's thread got me thinking of the last time I was down in Florida, so I thought I'd take my own advice- anybody else got some wild spring break stories they'd like to share? This is your chance, if you can remember, to relate your drunkin debauchery that didn't quite make it past the censors at E!'s "Wild On"

I'll post my own in good time, just want to see what everyone else has managed to do...

I've been on spring break four times and let's just say there's a video and some pictures that would haunt me if I ran for political office Embarrassment I did have allot of fun though.

I went to Negril Jamaica this past Spring Break. I stayed at an all inclusive club, so free drinks whenever you wanted, i started out with mixed drinks around 11am, drank 2 until about 1pm then had some beers from 1-6, usually around 5, then took a breather until 7, then started on 2 more beers, then worked my way to the coke and rums or punch and rum, until about 11pm, then i would go on the beach lay on the lounge chair look at the stars and hang out with some rasta's (thats all im saying about that) we got into the jamaican culture almost too much. then we went to a club came back and pass out around 4 am then my dad would wake me up at 8, i would eat, pass out on the beach because id still be drunk (among other things....) and sleep there until 11 and start the whole cycle over....SO MUCH FUN!

Twice going down to Orlando (AA ofcourse) with the family (3 Brothers, 1 Sister, 2 Parents) and just relaxing. The other memory is the senior class (back last year when I was a junior) going on an un-school chapperoned trip to the Bahamas and getting tottaly wasted which resulted in some of them getting arrested.

You know, never in my life have I ever done anything at all for Spring Break.

As promised:

I've only gone anywhere for spring break once (unless you count Ann Arbor with my family when I was 12) and that was a couple of years ago. I won't bore you with the details of the flight down; minor mechanical problems, but uneventful (BTW- grenadine bottles WILL leak when in an unpressurized cabin, and it WILL make a mess. Don't ask me how I know.)

Second day in FL, and it's storming. Rain, lightning, 10' breakers on the beach taunting us from our ground floor hotel room. After a few hours of this, Wisconsin and I (all of us neighbors just identified ourselves from where we were from; Kentucky was nextdoor, Sweeden (don't ask, those guys were NUTS!) was above us, and Wisconsin was nextdoor, but I digress) decided we weren't going to let mother nature ruin our spring break. So we all just ran out into the water. In the driving rain, lighting, wind, cold. Fully clothed. Did I mention the largest body of water I'd been in until this point was the local pond? And that I had consumed my half of a bottle of Malibu?

We pull ourselves out, and decide now is a good time to play some vollyball with a bunch of girls who have ventured out. Why not? My buddy decides to join us by now. After little while of this, we decide we're all cold, and it's time to go in. Better wash that sand off. (remember that bottle of Malibu? my buddy drank the other half)

So what do we do, but run back into the gulf. My buddy this time doesn't stop at the surf, and neither do I. That first breaker hit us and drove us down into the sand. When we popped back up and next thing we know, we're standing up, 10 yards off shore. Then the next breaker hits us, mouthfull of sand, and we're now 30 yards off shore. OK, not fun anymore. It took us 20 minutes to swim/walk our way back to the beach. And now we're also about 500 yards south of where we entered the water. That was a LONG, cold walk back. We get back, expecting everyone to be worried about us, after seeing us get swept out and almost drowned and all. Nobody even realized we were gone! And someone had the nerve to ask us why we were dripping wet!

By far, the dumbest alcohol induced thing I've EVER done. And that includes the bar brawl we got into 5 months prior.
