Unremembered pleasures

Okay, so I've seen this meme a few times now, and I'm ready to bite. (Are all memes successful because eventually they wear down our resistance to them or are they successful because we are self-absorbed, narcissistic people? Nevermind.)

As seen most recently at Busted Stuff and Tiny Cat Pants, I want you to leave a comment with a fake memory of us. That's right: "Please post a comment with a COMPLETELY MADE UP AND FICTIONAL memory of you and me. It can be anything you want — good or bad — BUT IT HAS TO BE FAKE."

As this meme really places the burden on you, gentle reader, I'll get it started with my favorite fake memory of me and Pea: One night, we were out drinking (okay, I was wasted on margaritas and Pea drank Cokes all night, but she totally acted drunk anyway), and we got in a ridiculous argument over Pride and Prejudice. Colin Firth/Matthew MacFadyen, BBC/Hollywood, etc. It was getting pretty ugly (there may or may not have been cursing in Spanish and then mockery of my horrible accent), and my Coke-drinking-ride-home friend was ready to ditch my sorry ass at the bar. When I realized that I was in danger of abandonment, I showed her my boobs and apologized for not being Salma Hayek. And then everything was all right. Friends are good like that.
