Elana Johnson! Her book, POSSESSION is available today and as part of the celebration, there is a big blog hop going on in which people are telling about times when they broke the rules.
I thought of many stories in which I broke the rules, but most of them will land me in either a mental hospital, a prison, or both...because that's me...I'm wild like that. :P
Luckily I thought of one that was a relatively minor rule-breaking that I'll tell you about right now.
When I was fourteen, I spent a lot of time at a local community theater. It was awesome and I loved it. One night after a performance, two of my friends and I called our parents and told them we were spending the night at each others houses... then we hid in the back of the theater behind the scenery while the managers locked up. We spent the night there.
As we were already on the premises, I'm not sure it qualifies as entering and since we were extremely careful, it wasn't really breaking either... so I think we're good. Either that or I'm justifying...shh, don't tell.
Anyway, it was a blast, we put on some music and danced on the stage. We played with the props. Stayed up all night sitting in the theater seats and talking. Then we put everything back in its place and snuck out the back-door at dawn.
It wasn't really all that rebellious, but we could've gotten in a lot of trouble. Also, it is one night I'll never forget. What about you? When did you break the rules? Also, follow this link to see a list of all the other blogs in the blog hop. Go read their rule-breaking stories.
And YAY FOR ELANA!! I'm SO excited for you girl! :)
