Teenage Wasteland

We shoplifted. We did drugs. We got cornrows. We joined nudist colonies. We tied our skateboards to our best friend's car. We went on impromptu road trips. We conned grocery-store delivery men into selling us liquor. We broke into haunted houses. We wore ridiculous outfits. We got arrested. And what was that poster we had up on our bedroom wall?
This week on the Herkimer, write about your most cringe-worthy teenage memory.

The tweediest of professors, the most architectural of fashion editors, and the zen-est of Buddhist monks have recollections of their teenage years which cause them to cover their eyes and mutter in humiliation.

What's one of yours?

Write with guts!
