    While in highschool, my best friend's Dad owned an LCO. He used to drop us off at the local Kraft cheese factory with the mowers to mow all day long. We were sixteen years old, trying to look cool and of course began smoking. He dropped us off one day and we did not have a lighter or any matches. We tried to light a cigarette on the muffler of a Snapper rear engine rider and ended up burning our hair. Found out later, that one of the high school guys that worked with us who was left there once without a light, tried to light a joint with the same muffler and a cup of gasoline and created a small but manageable brush fire under a Magnolia tree. Oh, how I miss the Kraft Cheese factory days.:cool2:

    When I first got my Z I was being stupid and kind of showing off at my moms and went flying down the side of the house which is about as wide as the Z. By accident I caught the edge of there brand new air conditioner and dragged it almost all the way off the pad (which happened in about half a second). I thought my step dad was gonna kill me. It still works fine it just has a little dent in the outter cage.

    I decided to put a battery operated drill in my pants like a gun slinger while going up a ladder. As I put the drill in my pants I accidentally hit the trigger. Needless to say, the drill caught my scivvies and I got a serious wedgie. Glad no one saw me. I sang saprono for a couple of days.
