» Putting the Fun in Funeral

Old enough to know better
Five or so years ago, my Dad and a friend of his were sat at the back of a church at the funeral of a mutual friend. The door of the church is open, and from outside they hear the bells of another church ringing in a fair imitation of a popular ringtone of the time.

My Dad looks over at his mate and says "It's for you".

His mate takes his mobile out of his pocket, looks at it and says "No, it's for you".

Cue two men in their late 50s collapsing into utter hysteria and having to leave the building.

My Dad died a couple of years later, but this is one of my favourite memories of him.

» Things you've done when you've had no money.

I developed a taste for
black pepper sandwiches, when all I could afford to eat for a week was a loaf of cheapo bread, and lots of little pepper sachets stolen from a railway café.

I also went through a period of going to bed at about 8pm, so I wouldn't notice that I'd had no dinner.

» Embarrassing Injuries

Not me, a friend: we were trying to carry a sofa up some stairs. It got stuck. Friend punched sofa out of frustration, was aiming for a soft bit, but hit a hard bit. Broke his hand, had to have it wired up, was off work for three months. The embarrassing bit was having to tell everyone he did it punching a sofa. The nurse didn't believe him.

Every special move...
...from the SNES version of Street Fighter II Turbo Edition.

Except Zangief's spinning piledriver. I could never do that properly.

» Impromptu Games You Play

Throwing cards in a bin
Place an empty bin about 6ft away from where you and your chums are sitting.

Divide a pack of playing cards equally between said chums.

Take turns to throw/flick cards in the bin. The one with the least cards in the bin has to pick up all the cards on the floor.

Hours of entertainment. Honestly.
