Fictional memories - creative writing

seen on manoman:

If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, (even if we don't speak often) please post a comment with a COMPLETELY MADE UP AND FICTIONAL memory of you and me. It can be anything you want - good or bad - BUT IT HAS TO BE FAKE. When you're finished, post this little paragraph in your journal and be surprised (or mortified) about what people DON'T ACTUALLY remember about you. (Only if you so desire, of course).

Not really a mindless meme - more of a creative writing prompt post and so I am not putting it into the memes friends group.

My reply to his post, here, was:

"What always makes me smile is remembering that time in the junior common room of Vanbrugh College (York University) when we were making and selling toasted sandwiches for the 12 hour all-nighter horror video marathon and you said that we should make omelette/egg and ketchup ones and call them 'bloody smashed brains' toasties!"

So, let'em rip!

Hey, Nat,

Long time no talk to! The other night, I had this random memory, and I knew I just had to drop you a line.

Remember back in 8th grade, when we had English together? (I can't remember the teacher's name for the life of me. How weird is that?) So, I was remembering when Mrs. X changed the seating to a big circle instead of the usual neat little rows and columns we were used to. It was a cool seating arrangement because it gave everyone a perfect view point of everyone else in the class.

You know what's coming, don't you?

I remember that day so clearly. We're sitting about 8 seats apart, and halfway between us sat Percy Wallace. So harmless and living a practically invisible existence through elementary and junior high school. Invisible, that is, until, his brilliant English teacher rearranged the seating in her class so that he's in plain view of everyone else in the class!!!

Right there in the middle of some mind-numbing, dreary discussion of some literary-classic-of-the-hour, good ole Percy starts picking the heck out of his nose. OMG he was going for gold! You and I both happened to notice it at the same time. Do you remember how we caught each other's eye and just sat there looking at each other, stunned?!? Oh...my...gawd!!! ROFL The look on your face was priceless! I remember us sitting there, practically across from each other, shifting our gazes and trying to pretend WE DID NOT SEE WHAT WE JUST SAW! [I am SO cracking up right now, I can hardly type!]

Then, as if that weren't enough, a few seconds later, we looked at Percy again, and he was biting his fingernail...the fingernail on the same finger that was just completely UP HIS NOSE!!! Eeeeewwwwww!!!!!ROFLMBO

That was the last straw! We took one look at each other and busted out laughing!!! OMG that was so freaking funny. We were too through for the rest of the class. Mrs. X didn't know what to do with us!

OK, that was just too funny. I had tears in my eyes remembering that one. Whoo!

Well, I hope you had fun remembering it, too! Take care and write back soon!

I sure did! I think that I will have to do this pseudo-meme more often, what with my MonSter chomped branes/memoree - it is really making me smile! ;-p
