I love story threads! I know you do too!
Today at work I had a fun chance to retell one of my buddy's best stories. Not for the first time, I wished it was my
In 1994, my friend Ben is at the movies with his girlfriend to see Natural Born Killers. He's very excited about the movie, and extra excited to see the trailer for Pulp Fiction. Ben grew up in Charlotte, NC, and when Ben and his lady sit down in the packed theater, they discover they are sitting next to Ric Flair and an attractive lady. In this contiguously seated foursome, picture Ben on the far left, and Ric Flair on the far right.
The trailers start up, and Ben (who is quite drunk and probably high) says to his girlfriend, at what he thinks is an appropriate volume, "If they don't show the Pulp Fiction trailer, I'm gonna kick Ric Flair's ass."
Several trailers play. Finally, the Pulp Fiction trailer plays. As it fades out, Ben, who is fighting to conceal his nerd boner, realizes that Ric Flair is leaning over both the ladies to say, "I guess I got lucky, huh kid?"
Ben says, "I love you, Ric Flair."
What cool stories have been told by your friends, instead of by you?
