When We Were Young

I feel comfortable with all of you. ... But before we go any further there is something you should know.

When I was 15 I used a BB gun to shoot the window out of a car on Culver Rd. ... near Forsythe Middle School. I did it because, well, we do things when we are young based on the environment in which surrounds us. I regret it. Knowing what I do now it's not that big of a deal, but I bet it was a pain in the ass for the guy whose car I busted.

I have never done anything like that again. I went to college, decided the person I wanted to be and moved forward in life.

Anyone else want to confess?

Within the first week I got my drivers license I accidentally hit another car(they suffered a cracked headlight) while parking my truck. The place was a busy shopping center and faked leaving a note on the other persons and drove away.

a loan for a '66 VW van. Later that week I went in to the bank and secured a safety deposit box. A few days after that I went fishing and caught a decent sized bass. I brought the bass into the bank wrapped in newspaper and put it into the box. Never went back into the bank again.

I ran over a chicken in a go kart. I was right next to the Tyson factory. Apparently it fell off their truck. I tried to return it to them but they didn't want. That might of been because they didn't know a lick of English.

When I was 10 my mother busted me as I was trying to steal junior mints from ShopKo.

I've stolen numerous things from my high school and deliberately took down the school's internet network so we would have the day off in my physics class.

Without knowing the story, it would be easy to draw your own conclusions about my character, lifestyle, etc.

I'll save you the details other than it involved dollar pitchers at Touchdowns.

I admire the honesty, quite a thing to throw out there. One of my best friends recently had a D.U.I. and is one of the greatest person I have the privilege to know. Although I don't approve of doing such a thing, but I'm willing to bet that >50% of licensed drivers have at one time sat behind the wheel while over the limit.

I had a similar experience, but the initial impact wasn't on purpose. I had just gotten my liscense and was speeding down the street at night in my new Wragler, when an opossum ran out in the road. I ran over his back half accidently, but neglected to kill the animal. We stopped to check it out and the thing was still alive, but crushed from the waist down. It was writhing and making this horrible noise from the excruciating pain. My friends all convinced me that we had to run over it again in order to put it out of its misery. I agreed and backed up over its head. I am still haunted today by its memory and the crunching sound of the second pass.

Episode of the Simpsons:

Everyone: We want prohibition! We want prohibition!

Quimby: You can't seriously want to ban alcohol. It tastes great, makes women appear more attractive, and makes a person virtually invulnerable to criticism.

Helen Lovejoy: Ohh!! Won't somebody please think of the children??

Maude Flanders: What kinda example are we setting?

Cheif Wiggum: Ladies please. All our founding fathers, astronauts and world series heros have been either drunk or on cocaine.

Old man: Ehhh wait look here. Seems like there has been a prohibition law on the books in Springfield for 200 years. There's also a law requirering ducks to wear long pants.

Quimby: Wait a minute, let me see that. Well I'll be damned: Long pants.

I did quite a few stupid things in my younger days. Actually was arrested, and lucky for it to have only been once. None of it was out of evil, but out of youth. Grew up, 2 degrees, good long career so far, coach of youth sports, devoted husband and father. I definitely believe in second chances, as well as third when deserved. I am totally pulling for Dorsey and RichRod. I hope they together re-establish the Michigan tradition of working your butt off and earning your place.

When I was 15, I did something absolutely awful. I shot the sheriff of the police department in my hometown. Yes, I admit it. I shot the sheriff...

...but no matter what my detractors may say, I did not...repeat, did not...shoot the deputy.

No, really this time. When I was 11, my brother, a couple friends and I broke* into an abandoned house in my neighborhood just to check it out. We found a room (aprox 12 x 15) with boxes full of porn stacked 5-6 feet high. Pretty much every 70's copy of Playboy, Hustler, penthouse, High Society and Cherry as well as every edition of Heavy Metal.

Yeah.... we took it all.

*by broke I mean we walked through the unlocked door.

by the police in A2 when I was in High School. I had been trespassing all over downtown Ann Arbor inside the U of M steam tunnels. After a week of reviewing the circumstances, the police decided not to press charges. It is really unfortunate that they came to that decision, seeing as how now I stalk small children and eat babies.
