purposely avoided including drive-ins, as most of those reminiscences may be
inappropriate for a ... (ahem) ... 'family' web site.

Actually, two of my funniest memories involve a drive-in:
interest of being discreet, I'll omit the name of my date.
We decided it
would be 'interesting' to go into the
snack bar and buy two of every smoke-able object there, and spend the evening testing them. So throughout the movie,
we each smoked a cigarette, a Tiparillo, a cigar, and a pipe. The Tiparillo was actually kinda fun, but the end result
was that I burnt my nose trying to light my cigarette. I decided it wouldn't really be a good hobby for me, if it required
constant assistance from someone else - not to mention the fact that I'm far too big a cheapskate to pay big bucks
for something I'm just planning to set afire. At the end of the evening, even though we had had much fun, I was a bit
nauseated, and a confirmed non-smoker.
other funny drive-in experience was with a bunch of girls piled in someone's car -
and I've no idea who those
girls were at this late date - to watch (gasp!) "Mondo Cane"! How shockingly daring of us!
When we weren't gagging, we were laughing at how naughty we were for being there.
