Growing up, my friend and I had a lot of little things that we would do when we would hang out. For example, when we were about to start playing a game we would have to say “A One, A Two, A One, Two, Three, Time IN” and then we could start playing. If one of us had to leave or stop playing for a second we would have to say “A One, A Two, A One, Two, Three, Time OUT.” We also had a rule that if we couldn’t agree about something in a game, we just wouldn’t play the game at all (these rules were taken very seriously).
We had also decided that instead of using towels when we washed our hands, we would shake our hands dry. Now, I don’t want to claim that we started the whole “going green” thing, but I’m not going to deny it either.
To make drying our hands as fun as possible, we would shake them and jump up and down and yell “shake shake shake” as loud as we possibly could until they were completely dry. As I said, we took these rules very seriously and abode by them everywhere we went. The most memorable time was when we were in a public library bathroom and when we walked out I realized that everyone in the library now knew how my friend and I dried our hands.
If I could recreate my sister’s face when my friend and I walked out of that bathroom, it would look something like this:
