That time I was visiting Tampa, Florida and a local girl asked: “Um, there’s this frat party nearby, you wanna go?”
*Me* “I’d rather not be one of the victims in a Law and Order: SVU episode, thank you very much.”
*She looked offended*
A wholly inappropriate joke, of course.
But, then again, I was rather tipsy.
For the record, when I told my sister this story she was on the floor laughing.
