From friends that were much cooler, aware, and edgey than I.
Then again, they also kept calling in to a Cape Cod radio station to play "Rock Lobster" from our campground space over and over. And they somehow obliged us
There might be absolutely no genius from my witnessing such behavior, but I shall never forget this experience. Nor shall I forget going off away from said campsite, with a more alpha male than myself.. downto Connecticut, where we happened to meet a group of young girls from England, the youngest of which was blonde and mildly naive, turning to me and saying "We're from Yorkshire."
My cohort was very skilled, as were her friends. She seemed to have spilled some beans.
Nevertheless, she and I made eyes, while all the others tested their personal abilities.
Alas, my not much younger Yorkshire girl and I never figured out how to connect, and we both fell asleep along the Connecticut coast.
(My alpha buddy came up equally flat in success.)
