We have all had that one great story that started that way😘
Yes...especially stories by the campfire.
The worst stories are the ones that start with that but don't deliver.....
"You ain't gonna believe this.....Nickelback is going back out on tour."
I agree...I am on the edge of seat expecting the story of a lifetime and get something like that. Mentally I have probably smacked the person a 100 times.
All "authentic" military stories start with either, "There I was..." or "This ain't no shit."
That's when I know those stories are real
