You Know You Want to Go

In the City Pages event guide, this shows up immediately before an advertisement for buying a 64 oz. growler of beer to go at Town Hall brewery. My friend Kyle once consumed a lot of alcohol and then rode his bike in the covered pedistrian bridge at the University of Minnesota with very predictable results (from his perspective, the bridge should have been much longer than it actually was, then those doors might not have been in the way). It certainly looked x-tremely painful when he came back to the apartment.

Are you taking Eryn?
You and your friend Kyle seemed to do a lot that would have required a helmet. One I recall is taking the side of a car off with a light post on the freeway (after all these years I will give up my knowledge of the accident. You may try to keep something from a parent but in your family it usual did not work.) It was over something (head) hanging from the dash of the wagon. Have a great day.

You have no idea what you're talking about. We were run off of the road by a green car. Our story was vetted by the highway patrol.

I do not remember the object being green or have wheels and a motor! I know what the report said. But prior were you and Kyle paying attention or fussing over something instead of paying attention to the green car? I did a few stupid thing in my time also. Like taking out a transmission in a 58 dodge by grounding it out at 139 MPH. Also taking the oil pan out of a 1955 dodge on a road I should not have been on and hit a rock. I moved the car back to the main road by pushing it then walked home to tell my dad. The time I drove a car into a lake. The time I jumped a 25 foot creek with a car. I could go on and on. I am only glad you probably did half the things I did when young. And hope Eryn does 1/2 what you did.

Eryn is doomed. She already ran into Jen when she wasn't looking with her Gator.

Just to clarify the bike situation (I won't speak to the subject of mysterious green cars since much has already been said about the issue), I didn't actually come upon the end of the pedestrian bridge unexpectedly - I'm pretty sure my depth perception was in good shape that particular evening. My recollection is that I actually fell over while trying to stop/do a track stand after several passes up & down the bridge. Tired muscles, alcohol induced imbalance, toe clips & a fixed gear bike just turned out to be a poor combination - who would have thought...
