Breaking the Law 
1999 Personal Account

There was a girl at my high school, she wasn't the brightest girl. She was a troublemaker, got in hot water in school, generally she wasn't the sharpest knife in the drawer.

One day I remember she decided to cut out from school after first period. Students are just NOT supposed to do that; you'll get a three-day in-school suspension if you do. So she left school and broke into a man's trailerhome in the trailerpark a few miles away.

She broke in, stole all the booze he had, got staggering drunk and decided to go skinny dipping in a private, man-made pond. Where she promptly drowned, no surprise there. On the bright side, in this way she managed to avoid a 3-day suspension. But look at all the laws she broke while proceeding about her death.

She left school. That's one. She was also guilty of breaking and entering the trailer. That's two. She steals booze, drank booze underage, and trespassed. That's three, four and five. And to top it all off, skinny dipping in public equals indecent exposure. Six laws broken.

What an idiot. She deserves a Darwin Award. © 1994 - 2012
