Dear 100 Hour Board,

Have you slipped on the ice yet, or is it just me? Let's here a story.

- Three times

A: Dear three times,

Yes, I have slipped on ice this winter.

I fail to see what a story has to do with slipping on ice, but I'll go ahead and tell you one just the same. There was this one time that I came home from my girlfriend's apartment. I got home kind of late, so I didn't want to bother putting my backpack all the way back in my room, so I just left it out in my living room. I worked on the computer for a little bit, and then I ended up going to sleep.

She came over the next day, and sure enough, my backpack was still there, sitting in the living room. I hadn't even taken it back to my room! And it had been over a whole day!

Actually, I don't tell very good stories. Sorry.

- Optimistic.
A: Dear Triple timer,

I was walking with my roommate and I was wearing shoes with traction and she was in high-heeled boots. She kept slipping, so I called her Bambi. She said that made me Thumper, which had me laughing for a good 5 minutes. Until she slipped again.

For a real-life account of what happened:
