What was the craziest thing that happened to you or a friend over the break?

“Before Christmas, I was out with friends from Alberta. We had a few drinks and just basically chilled out. Then I found out from my mom the next day that I had the shower on for about an hour during the night, took the top section of the toilet off and I was sleeping on the floor.”
—Jeff Mills,
Health Sciences IV

“A friend of mine who goes to the University of Regina said that some guy from her residence floor went out in his boxers. He ended up going to a car wash in his boxers.”
—Alia Awasheh,
Honours Politics/French III

“I had to have eye surgery over the break, and I was awake during the surgery. I could hear the doctors talking about their Christmas plans all through the surgery.”
—Michelle Hellyer,
Social Sciences IV
