Tell me a story
We went camping. A bunch of us go camping in cougar WA. One of the people in the group finds out, there is a place we can bungee jump off a bridge. None of us have done that before, so we decided to go do it. When we got to the bridge, there were a ton of people standing on the bridge. My brother in law dared me to jump off the bridge and say “fuck you” and flip everyone off as I was falling. I thought to myself for 2 seconds and thought “well duh”. So when it was my turn to bungee jump – I screamed “Fuck you” and flipped everyone off. It was pretty hilarious. I have always wondered what the other people were thinking, when they heard me scream that, as I jumped off the bridge. hahaha!
