someone told me there's a girl out there with love in her eyes and flowers in her hair


Back in the day on our cross country road trip my girl friend and I would park the car on the side of the road and sleep in it. We did this all over Mexico and America, getting into real trouble only once


My friend’s husband had given her this crazy flashlight lantern sort of thing that had a switch that turned it into a red flashing cop type light. We would use it as a light to set up our camp when we would park so we could see to move stuff around and brush our teeth and find clothes to sleep in and all that stuff.

One night it was about 4am when we decided to pullover and set up car camp. We saw a trailer on the side of the road so we decided to park near them for some safety. Somehow we accidentally turned the light onto red flashing siren mode by accident and we could not get it to turn off and we were laughing really hard and unable to do anything for a spell. The trailer had been dark and shortly all of the lights were on. Clearly we woke whoever was sleeping inside. They must have gotten scared because within minutes they started their vehicle and drove away, while two silly college girls laughed hysterically trying to turn off a red flashing light, which made us laugh even harder. We were having way to much fun to take into consideration what a drag that must have been for the poor folk. Fucking youth.
