We had a couple of "white water rafting trips" in the showers! A sidewise table covered in plastic garbage bags, plug up the shower and, presto! – a six man raft with oars 3 - 4 feet high in water!! An awesome sight. Good times until the dam broke . . . wooosh . . . a waterfall cascading down the hall into CS-27. Oh well!
Also . . . we had NO carpeting back in the purple A-jacket days, and the floors were buffed, right? One Saturday night during yet ANOTHER restriction, we soaked the floor with water, and proceeded to have a contest between '75, '76' & '77 on who or whom could slide the furthest down the hallway towards the Grim Reapers, naked, with only the use of soap on one’s tush to combat friction, and consequently gain velocity! (Not a bad description from a Life Sci guy, huh?)
Well, the contest was going alive and well, when in the midst of the competition, a female officer (a what?) came wandering down the side hallway and got quite a sight! No one heard "female in the area" or anything! Imagine that! But I'll never forget the look on her face, as she gazed upon us 30+ naked sliders. As she was exiting down the stairway, one of our juniors was "sliding" by, and still managed a salute, greeting her with a loud "Good Evening, Ma’am!" as he passed her by! She was horrified, and we laughed our soapy asses off! Must be time for the Family Subs delivery!
