just for the hell of it

Have you ever done anything "just for the hell of it?" I like that term.

"Just for the hell of it." That term describes the motivation for doing things you probably wouldn't do if you thought long and hard about doing it FIRST, but since you didn't, you went ahead "just for the hell of it." Sometimes, you end up with a great adventure that way. Sometimes, you end up with scars. Sometimes you meet a few interesting people in jail. The "hell" is in that term for a reason.

I tend to do things "just for the hell of it." I once did it because I was a wild young man. Now I do it because I miss my youth and I feel that I have little to lose anymore. I've already lost everything I ever gave a shit about, and once you overcome that kind of shock, life becomes very free.

Recondo 32 invited me to attend his father's funeral today, but I declined. I never met the man when he was alive, and I don't like funerals anyway. I actually thought about going, just for the hell of it, but I don't belong there. The funeral is for the family and I'm not part of that.

I once took a dare and jumped off the second bridge leading to Skidaway Island when the bridge was still under construction. That's the tall bridge. I must have plunged 50' before I hit the water even at high tide. I broke the water clean and went all the way to the bottom of the river, where my feet sunk about 6" into mud before I clawed my way to the surface. I did that just for the hell of it, but I never wanted to do it again.

Quinton is a nine year-old boy because I did something just for the hell of it. Jennifer asked, and I complied. I don't regret doing it, but I certainly wish that the circumstances were different today. I sired a fine son. I just did it with a pure piece of shit partner. I wish that I had never met her, but I went out on that first date just for the hell of it.

Just for the hell of it.

Sometimes, you really should look before you leap.


65' into water can break almost every bone in your body. You can, for the hell of it, occasionaly live through a 65' fall into water, too.

I thought I blew my goddam asshole out after that jump. I had both hands cupped on my nuts and my body was straight as an arrow when I hit the water. I forgot about the Fleet Enema effect.

It hurt when I hit and I went clean to the bottom of the Wilmington River, which is DEEP.

I did that just for the hell of it.

The first and last time I dove off a ten meter platform, I went about 10 degrees past vertical. Thought I had broken my back. Also scraped my head on the bottom of the pool. Just for the hell of it, I decided I wouldn't try that again. Cannonball or watermelon jumps usually don't hurt and it's lots easier to control entry position, but I don't think I'd go balls first from anything higher than 10 feet.

There's a lake just north of Tacoma, WA which has, or at least, 30 years ago, had, four piers, 10', 20', 30' and 40' off the water. Some friends and I went swimming there once when I was 19. I was late getting to the water, and they had already gone off all four piers. I was never one for sports but this looked like fun. It was, so I guess this story doesn't belong here. Hell, I'd do it again. It's not so hard when you go up in increments of 10'.

The best "just for the hell of it" story I remember takes me back to ninth grade. There was a girl that was a bit of a bitch, snotty, uppity, I'm better than you type that a lot of people didn't care for. I was one of them. She missed a couple of days of school and the rumours ran rampant that she had been masturbating with frozen weiners and got one stuck and had to go to the hospital to have it removed.
Well, I could be a bit of a bitch myself back in the day, (okay, so I still can be, but what the hell) and I had heard that these rumours were really upsetting little Miss Thang. So my friend and I decided to rub a little salt in that wound of hers. She finally came back to school after a couple days and thought the flurry of the rumour mill had died down a bit. She was right back to her righteous self. All that was about to change. My best friend and I (she is as evil as me) wrapped a package of frozen weiners in brown kraft paper, addressed them to her with a poem attached that I authored:
"Oh her weiners have a first name, it's O-S-C-A-R,
Her weiners have a second name, it's M-A-Y-E-R,
Oh, she loves to shove them in and out and pray to god they don't thaw out,
'Cause Oscar Mayer's got a way to please Luan each and every day".

We put the package on her doorstep, rang the bell and ran like hell, just for the hell of it.

It was about another week before she was back in school....

The words of truth are always paradoxical.
