Back in '97 when we were both at Nationals Shane and I ended up rooming together. I had known Shane for a few years before this, but it was the first time we had ever really talked.
We both had... not really bad partners, but partners that we weren't going anywhere with. I pretty much knew after Canadians was over that year Allison and I wouldn't skate together anymore, and I was a little depressed about that. Shane was skating with Marie and they hadn't done well at any competition that season, so they both pretty much knew that their partnership would be over after Canadians.
They weren't a skating match made in heaven either. I'm not sure I've ever seen anyone fight as much as they did, so Shane and I were throwing a little party in our room after the pairs free skate was over. A party in the sense that we ordered pizza (which all skaters know is a very rare treat during the season), and watched T.V. almost all night.
Around midnight we turned the T.V. and got talking about Marie. Shane all of a sudden got the idea to call and get a hooker for her. I'm not kidding. Little innocent Shane wanted to call a hooker for his partner. At first I didn't think it was a good idea, but he got the phone book and started looking for one. I doubt many of you have ever looked in a phone book for hookers, but some of the adds were hysterical. I decided to go along with it, and we chose a guy who "brought the party to your door dressed however you want." Don't ask why I remember that. Somethings just stick in your head. Anyways, Shane called the guy up and gave him the address and room number, and told him that he (actually he was using his best girl voice, so the guy wasn't too scared;) wanted him to dress like a pizza boy. After he got off the phone he called Marie, just to see if she was still up, which she was. Her room was right across the hall from ours. She was rooming with Allison. How nifty was that? I knew that Allison wasn't there, and that is the only reason I agreed.
We talked some more until we heard a knock on the door across the hall. We both rushed to the little hole on the door to see what Marie would think of her Pizza. Let's just say that I don't think i've heard anyone cuss someone out so loud before in my life. I'm sure she could have waken the whole hotel up. Of course like concerned friends we ran across the hall to make sure everything was alright;) It was really hard to keep from laughing, so we left after a couple of hugs. Needless to say that was probably one of the funniest Canadians i've ever been too.
Okay well I better get going, Shane and I are alone, and we feel the need to cause more trouble;)
I miss you Jamie
Jen you better bring her home in one piece!
I love you forever babe.
