I was reminded earlier of a post I've been meaning to write for a while:

I have a whole bunch of stories that I really love telling, but I worry about overplaying them, naturally. On the other hand, they're pretty great, so if you haven't heard them, you should. So! If you haven't heard one (or more) of the following stories from me, ask me the next time you see me and want to hear one:

The Dick Cheney story
The dog ticket story (this is about my brother)
The parental pimped up ride + the Wyoming cop (all my best stories involve my brother)
ghislaine and me at our first B&B
The "tough shit" story (which I foolishly told in comments recently)
Any in the series of stories about men trying to pick me up (though these are funniest grouped together, which might involve a whole evening and a lot of alcohol)

There may be others, but these are the ones that leap to mind.
