What is the craziest thing you have ever done when you were a teenager? by Gus Simmo
Answer by Gus Simmo:
When I was 17 and boozed up at a party (by all reports this is a gross understatement) my addled sub conscious decided to take me home. I had recently moved house and remember thinking I should ask someone how to get there. That's about the last thing I remember of that night.
The following morning I was woken up by a nice kind seeming truck driver who informed me we had arrived at 100 Cape st, he wished me well and I thanked him profusely for helping me home.
As the truck pulled away and the haze of hangover drifted across my mind, the street didn't look right, why was it so hot, this doesn't look like where I live, I thought to myself.
It took a lot of walking and waking up before I realised I wasn't even in the right city. I had left the party in Melbourne, Victoria and hitched a ride to a suburb of Sydney with a very similar sounding name and identical street name. 1000km from where my much needed shower and bed were located.
Took me 4 days to get back to Melbourne which I mostly walked!
