Exposing the Truth

I could wish this wasn’t a true story. But it is.

A high school friend and I argued constantly. We had Gym class together, and one day we argued all the way to the showers and back to our lockers. We continued to argue as we toweled off and headed for the exit, tossing our towels in the bin and walking out onto campus, still arguing…

We’d left the gym naked.Β 

The next day I changed my name and moved to Tibet.

OK, so that part’s not true.

I only wished it was.

  1. I see some of your friends were pointing and laughing … Tibet is probably as good a place as any.

  2. I’ve had nightmares like that. I think I would die if it happened in real life. Especially when I was a teenager.

    The fact that you survived and went on to do amazing things is awesome!

  6. Wow! That must have been some argument if you and your friend were so deep into it that you forgot about your clothes! Didn’t you feel . . . um . . . . a draft?

    πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜† I have only dreamed of walking in somewhere naked and that is scary enough. At least there were two of you to share the embarrassment.
