After people had wedged into every conceivable corner of our bus, a 300lb ticket taker waded through the crowd. 1 hour later he had forced his way to my part of bus covered in sweat, which lubricated and smoothed his passing. FMPCL.

Today I made a new friend while walking my dog. During our conversation I thought I heard him say "...and then she burned a baby" in Macedonian.... so maybe I am not fully understanding the things that are happening around me.

Bought a bus ticket to go into the capital so I wouldn't have to crowd into a rented van. Showed up the next day and was informed that a school had rented a whole bus for a trip to the desert, and for us they'd gotten an alternative: a pair of vans!

My dog got pregnant for the second time. I left for the weekend, and when I came back my family told me that she'd had her puppies, then eaten them. The worst part is that I’m not even upset, just relieved I don’t have to raise another litter. FMPCL

Any votes = awesome: My girlfriend came to visit as winter was setting in Ukraine. After night one there was shit frozen solid on the outhouse floor. She thought it was hers. It was mine. Had to beat it with a stick to sweep it into the toilet.

At my site I got super drunk at a party and puked all over the couch cover in my room. The couch in the living room had the same cover, I switched them out. The host mom blamed the boy and spanked the hell out of him

Went to an omelette guy because he had eggs to sell. Wouldn't sell me the uncooked eggs because they were supposed to be used for omelettes. Ask for an omelette, says he's out of bread...
