Expense report

So I have a few friends who, for different reasons, are having a hard time right now. If you are one of those folks, big hug to you right now.
One friend who is having a hard time e-mailed me today, and I e-mailed back with, "Let me know if there's anything I can do to help, including but not limited to telling you funny stories at my own expense."
It occurs to me that that is, like, 72 percent of what I have to offer to people generally, and, like, 97 percent of what I have to offer as a blogger.
So, first-ever City Mouse Country contest, in the interest of providing a steady source to those who need it.
If you know me personally, e-mail me (rather than using the "comments" link) with a funny story at my expense. Heck, e-mail me several, if you like.
I will post everything that is true and not too terrifying to put on the Internet where my parents will likely see it. The person who sends the best one will win a prize. "Best" will be determined by voting. Get submissions in by Sunday at 11:59 p.m., but I'll start running them as soon as I start getting them.

I have the laziest friends on earth. I know, birds of a feather and all that.
You sending me one line (as three of you essentially did) that says, "What about when you..." will not win you any contests, and it won't get posted here, either. You're going to need to actually tell the story, in words or pictures or both, and e-mail it to me.
I know you can do it.
Before Sunday.

You know how you can always think of something when no one cares... and can't think of a single thing when a contest is at stake?

Yes, that.

Some stories are more entertaining if you let the reader extrapolate some of the details.
