And the ‘I DIDN’T THINK THIS THROUGH’ winners are….

This was a hard choice y’all! All of the ‘I Didn’t Think This Through’ stories were fantastic! So good, in fact, that we decided to add prizes for a runner up and 4 honorable mentions! Out of about 30 stories we received, here are our top 6!

 

GRAND PRIZE WINNER!

AMANDA ROBINSON (Entered on Back Fence Facebook fan page)

I agree to help my new friend move- she’s finally leaving her loser/boozer/abuser boyfriend. I pull up to the house. He’s gone; he’s locked her out. She breaks the front window. Glass everywhere. We start frantically stuffing clothes into garbage bags. She says: “Weird- his gun’s not in its case.”

WINS: 2 VIP tickets to 1/23 Back Fence show (plus 2 drink tickets), PLUS 2 tickets to Portland Center Stage’s hit show The North Plan, PLUS from our lovely sponsors Saint Cupcake & Popina Swimwear gift certificates. PLUS, PLUS two tickets to one of our March Back Fence shows (plus two drink tickets)!

RUNNER UP!

SARAH MOORE (Entered on backfencepdx.com website)

In sixth grade, I hatched a brilliant scheme to win the man of my dreams. I would leave us both “anonymous” notes telling us we were meant for each other, then act surprised. I didn’t mean to write them on the back of my schoolwork. With my name on each.

WINS: 2 VIP tickets to 1/23 Back Fence show (plus two drink tickets), and two tickets to one of March Back Fence shows (plus two drink tickets)!

HONORABLE MENTION

NOTJUST ABREEDER (Entered on Back Fence Facebook fan page)

Long story short, camping, 8 kids, 3 adults, 1 adult being the ex-wife, whiskey, drunk ex, vomit in truck, teenagers leg trapped between logs, cops, jaws of life, Russian mafia guy, body guards, hospital, no sleep, no fish, never again…

WINS: Two tickets to one of our March Back Fence shows (plus two drink tickets)!

NAT S. (Entered on backfencepdx.com website)

Decided to take a crazy amount of acid at midnight with an acquaintance. We stayed up all night watching the trees wave to us. Forgot that later that morning I was driving with my now-lesbian ex-girlfriend 500 miles to my hometown to visit my parents. For Thanksgiving.

WINS: Two tickets to one of our March Back Fence shows (plus two drink tickets)!

CHLOE P.S. von UECKERMANN (Entered on Back Fence Facebook fan page)

Went to the Midwest to help build a friend’s house. Bought a one-way ticket. Met “Crazy Joe” who told strangers he was ‘pot guy on facebook’. One night he tried to kiss my face & said, “I ain’t tryin’ to keep you, I just wanted to know if your skin was soft.”

WINS: Two tickets to one of our March Back Fence shows (plus two drink tickets)!

THOMAS (Entered on backfencepdx.com website)
When I was seventeen, I got a Straight Edge tattoo.
