We Used to Drink on the School Trips

Imagine this, twenty five kids on the bus going on the school trip, and once in the while some of them would take a bottle of Vodka from their knapsack and drink, including me. Yes, we used to drink, but it wasn't a Vodka, it was a tea or some kind of juice. Back then we didn't really have good drinking plastic bottles to bring our drink in, so we used whatever we had at home. Since the Vodka bottle was the only bottle with the screw top, that was the most popular bottle taken on the trip, some of them still with a label on it. So this is how we used to drink on the school trips in the elementary school. The scary part was that they actually let us drink on the bus while bus was in motion. Luckily we didn't damage our teeth. So one day here is me, drinking my Vodka from the bottle, suddenly I stand up on the bus and yelled out to my friend beside me - did you see this, wow? And suddenly my teacher gave me a look that I had to bury myself in the bus chair, turning red, and trying to drink my Vodka, and of course to pretend that nothing happened. Can you guess what I saw? I will give you some clues: it was in Europe, it was a big tree, parked bike on the side of the road.

  4. My three guesses:

    1. A farmer wearing a pink jacket beside the pink bike. (Europe - fashion city)

    2. A man going on strike and trying to chop down the tree to get the apples

    3. A man and a woman ... you know. (Country of romance)

  5. There was only one bike? I would have said it was a couple, romantically involved, enjoying a beautiful moment under that tree. Well, maybe they both rode there on the same bike, with the lady sitting sidesaddle on the crossbar. Will you tell us the answer one day?

  12. Hi Rendell, you blogging again, you know it is always nice to see you here, or which ever blog of mine you enter these days, lol.

    So you had three guesses:

    You guessed: 1. A farmer wearing a pink jacket beside the pink bike. (Europe - fashion city) - no, no farmers were not that fashionable, lol.

    You guessed: 2. A man going on strike and trying to chop down the tree to get the apples - no, no, but that one was a good one, lol.

    You guessed: 3. A man and a woman ... you know. (Country of romance) - yeah country of romance, but you know all the romantic people would hide usually in the bushes, lol.

    Sorry Rendell, but it was real fun reading your guesses. The answer is coming soon...

    Anna :)

  18. Dear friends, I am going to reveal what I saw. You may be surprised and may not, but it was just simple 'nature call'. It seems to be very popular to pee on the tree, lol, in Europe. Obviously I was surprised because I saw it first time in my life, and then as I got older, it seemed just part of life, no more blushing. And may be he was having something to drink while biking, lol. Thanks all for your guesses. Anna :)

  19. Yeah Angel that was some bottle alright. Thanks for dropping by, it is always nice to see you here. Anna :)

  20. Thanks for revealing the answer! I should have known. Now that I think of it, I bike, I drink, I pee. Guys are so lucky, though. I always go looking for a cafe. Then I feel it's not really right to use the facility without buying something, and since I love a good latte, you guessed it.... the cycle begins again. Then, the trick is to make it home before I have to find another cafe. Probably more information than you or your readers ever wanted to know:)

  22. UHAHAHA. I thought exactly the same :)
    Mmmm.

    ***did you see this, wow?

    What exactly were you saying? Pointing out that a person is peeing or pointing out something specific? LOL

    Nice post. BTW, you drinking tea from vodka bottle?
    Would have been better if it was vodka from tea bottle? isn't it?
    :)

  23. Hi! I am so shocked by this revelation, that I will have to tell you mine! Whilst at school drinking alcohol was common practise amongst students (mainly always football players) and the brothers turned a blind eye to it. Why? When emptying their bins we discovered they also drank! Yes, I too have been caught having a pee beside many a eucalyptus tree but only the koalas saw me at it!
