When Holly was about to get married, she got "her big trip" that apparently all of my sisters have kinda gotten before they got married. i wouldn't know cause i haven't been married. damn tahitians. no really - i'm glad i'm not married to that scumbag, i'm just still a little ticked that i got cheated out of a great vacation :) holly picked sydney, australia. and i'm pretty sure my dad had a little work to do there. i got to go. we were young still, and spoiled, i might add. my parents have never been rolling in the dough, but we've always lived a great life. we've always traveled. so, back in college, we went to Australia. just the four of us. hojo, me, mikey & ned. and man, we stayed at a fancy hotel. i remember it being the nicest one i've ever stayed at, until our trip to kauai... (remember that one momma?) my crazy mutha got us these bus passes to ride around sydney - so we wouldn't have to rent a car & we wouldn't have to pay for taxis all the live long day. ned's slightly frugal. well, our last day there, she figured out that part of what we'd paid for for these bus passes was a bus tour of the city. who wants to go on a bus tour, right? so holly and i were being slightly bratty about going, as my memory serves me. sorry - don't mean to make hojo look bad. i'll take the whole blame. it was just me. we're on this bus, riding around. i remember it being pretty empty. hojo and i were sitting a few seats away from our parents, i'm sure to punish them at the time. this couple got on the bus & sat right in front of us.
now one thing you need to know about me, is that in an empty environment, if you come and sit right upon me, its going to piss me off. invade my space & i get hostile.
so as the lady is sitting down, i ram my knee into the back of her seat, a very passive aggressive way of showing her how i feel about it. and i kept it there for a while, apparently making her slightly uncomfortable. until we must've hit a bump or something & she realized that it wasn't that she was sitting on this extremely uncomfortable seat... it was a pain in the ass spoiled kid behind her. she turns around and says, in a very australian accent, "get your knee out my back please." of course, i played dumb, said i was sorry & moved. then holly and i had to contain our laughter til we were released from that silly ol' bus ride.
i don't know why we still find such humor in that situation. but we both crack up just thinking about it. and we frequently say that to each other. just so you people knows. i will stick it to you, if i feel trapped. watch yourself.
