Secret Newlywed Behaviors: High School Version

This version of Secret Newlywed Behaviors is brought to you by way of Superbad!

When my best friend and i were in high school (in Canada), we went downtown into this dark and dingy store where the stairs led us into a basement.  I am not even sure who told us about this place.  But there we were, two high school kids in a dark and dingy tattoo parlour.  No we were not there to get tattoos... but fake ids.

Yes we did a McLovin! Such a cliche but so true.



It was actually very easy for the bff and i to get our ids.  We paid like twenty bucks.  They took our pictures and superimposed them on US driver's licenses.  They were meant as a souvenir and not meant to be used as a proper ID the dude informed us, ever so legally!

My bff and were beyond excited.  For like three years, from 15-18, we used our ids to attend numerous over 19 clubs.   We had a lot of fun those three years.  I think we told our parents we were going to all-ages clubs whenever we went out.  We didn't do anything bad.  We would go, dance and just have fun! We felt so grown-up. (in hindsight we had no idea what it meant to be a grown up!)

There was of course that one time that the bff was asked by the bouncer, "what's your zip code?" and she looked at him with a blank stare!  A. total. complete. blank. stare!  Needless to say we didn't get into the club that night.  So embarrassing!  Or that time the bouncer told me there was no way i could be who i say i am.
Total Fail!

.  

The things we do as teenagers! When we finally started going to clubs legally, it wasn't even fun because we had been going for like three years, illegally!  I am so scared of what my kids are going to come up with.  And i don't even have them yet.  Secrets do catch up with you sometimes through your kids! (i think).

What is the craziest thing you did as a teen?

I used to tell my mom I was going to the library when I was really sneaking out to meet a boy. Yeah. My life could be a movie.

haha wow! I don't think I ever did anything too crazy as a teen....boring, I know :) In college my girlfriends and I snuck into our football stadium (I attended a ACC school) and went streaking across the field. That was pretty fun! :)

Oh geesh. I did too many stupid things to think of. I think the most stupid was smoking pot in the girls bathroom. I COULD HAVE GOTTEN EXPELLED! What was I thinking? What a moron. WHAT A MORON.

Hannah {Culture Connoisseur} said...

Haha...funny how getting arrested is LESS scary to me than being expelled apparently...

I wish I could have experienced the whole "having a fake id" story. I went to school in the middle of nowhere really...so honest to god- there was no where to go...and the two places that were there...already knew who you were. But everyone that has gotten a fake id that I know...has a great story!

oh to be a teen! We really do not use our heads most of the time.

@sherri lynn..love the streaking story:-)

Hahaha I got a fake ID in college and the way it was taken away was when a bouncer asked me..."what does the California bear stand for" Well I am from Illinois..so you can see why it was taken away. :-) Gotta love the things you do as a teen!

Mila said...

Oh my goodness, you just left evidence for your future children :)

I love that McLovin ID...wished I had thought of something that clever when I was flashing my fake ID back in college ;)

That is too funny! My husband and I have been together since we were 17. In college, he managed a computer store. We definitely had sex in his office on our dating anniversary junior year of college!

Found you from Goober Grapes hop!

hahaha, omg, too funny! i never had the pleasure of doing the fake ID thing but i remember my mom wouldn't let us wear short skirts ... so i would leave with proper clothes with the skirt(s) in my book bag....and then i'd change, haha. one day my skirt was a little too short so my teacher said they had to call my mom to have her bring me a change of clothes ... imagine the fear i started feeling ... i told her, that i already had a change of clothes just in case it was determined that my skirt was too short, lol ... and i never did that again! :)

Mrs Pancakes said...

@Faith I know the short skirt trick. I went to a catholic school:-) those were the days!!

Yakini @ThePrissyMommy said...

lmao! I think i was always too chicken to do the fake I.D. thing. Hmmm, craziest thing as a teenager. Well, my junior/senior year in high school i actually wore buttpads, because i was so self-conscious about being skinny and not having (what I thought was) enough booty. *smh* I used to live in fear of being found out, and took great pains to make sure the pads were positioned right and looked "natural." OMG!! LOL!! Funny that i can laugh about it now.

Mrs Pancakes said...

@Yakini that's pretty funny! Thanks for sharing:-)

You are lucky your parents let you go out. I wasn't allowed to go to clubs until I was in college and by then I didn't need a fake ID. no wild times for me :-(
