I told this to some people in Sunday School this past Sunday. They laughed at me. Not sure why I did this but…When I got the news from my ex-wife that she wanted to be my EX-wife I was working at MAX FCU. After walking into the women’s restroom, not realizing I was actually in the women’s room until I realized there wasn’t a urinal on the wall, I decided I’d go home. Consider that this was about 15 years ago. I stopped on the way home and bought a 4-pack of Zima(anyone remember Zima). Why, I don’t know. But when I got home to my little trailer, I decided it would be a good idea to climb to the top of a very tall pine tree and sit and drink the Zima. So I did. I’m not sure why. I think that maybe I was thinking that she would come home and see my car and not know where I was and be worried. She never came home, though. So I climbed down after about an hour. I’m not sure why I told this story. I suppose there is something funny about a guy whose wife is leaving him, sitting in a tree drinking a girly beverage.
FYI…I quit drinking altogether in 1998. Haven’t climbed a tree since.
I hope that’s not the tree you climb, because if it was… the ex-wife would have been the last thing on my mind. I would have probably been worrying about how to get out of that tree safely after 4 manly Zima’s.
I made it down with only a broken arm. Falling is not the preferred method of getting down from a tree. And the tree I was in was even taller than that one!
I remember the women’s restroom part…and someone called me to come down there…imagine that….but I don’t remember the tree climbing part and I am really kind of glad……Nancy
I remember Zima. I remember your ex-wife. I remember drinking Zima with you and your ex-wife. Unfortunately, I remember a lot of things.Tiffany Ladley(Singleton now, but I was Ladley, when I remembered all of that.)
Nancy, was that you? It was kind of blur.Tiffany, that is too funny. I won’t tell anyone if you won’t!!! I remember several things also. A certain house on Bozeman Trail anyone?
Oh, my! That house on Bozeman Trail – now that’s a blast from the past!Up and Down the River? Anyone?I think we need to agree to keep all of those memories in the “vault.” Capiche?Tiffany Ladley Singleton
The vault will be locked unless there is something in there with great comedic potential. In those cases I can’t make any promises. I will, however, change any names to protect the guilty!
