rigor mortis

I was taking a long drive with a few friends. We stopped at a gas station for drinks and bathroom. While we were getting back into the car my friend and I were rough housing. A girl behind us said, “You guys are gonna die!” This girl had just told us the day before that her mother had died through tragic circumstances. My friend replied quickly with an age old joke. “Your mom’s gonna die!” I didn’t see his face. I wish I had. Instead, I tried to top him. I said, “Yeah! She’s already dead, and rigor mortis is setting in!” Immediately I remembered about her mom and saw my friend’s face. He was terrified. I looked away from her as fast as possible, put my headphones on and avoided eye contact with her for the rest of the trip. I felt like a monster, and I still don’t like thinking about it.

  1. I’m really sorry, I know it was probably traumatic for you and definitely for the girl but I LOL’d at this story really hard.

  2. Did everyone else read the same story I did.. That little B told them they were gonna die. She got what she deserved…

  3. i’m typically surfing all over the web nearly all of the time which means I have a propensity to read an awful lot, which isnt normally a beneficial factor as several of the internet sites I visit are made up of useless rubbish copied from similar websites a zillion times, but I have to compliment you because this website is really enjoyable and even seems to have a lot of authentic content, for that reason thank you for helping to stop the pattern of simply just copying other peoples’ sites, in case you ever want to have fun with playing a couple of hands of myspace poker with me just send me a message – you have my email address 🙂
