From a tent a few feet away, following a round of very energetic and impossible-not-to-overhear sex, came the following breathless exclamation:

"Wow, you're the best ex-girlfriend *ever*!"

"I never thought I'd be using a flamethrower on my wedding night."

Absolutely true story. My new wife spoke those words in 2012.

Kid in our camp: LOOK! Flying monkeys

I about broke my neck running out to see them, as did others in camp.

They were imaginary. But you know, it's burning man! There really might be flying monkeys!

Kid was laughing hysterically at us.

Mmmmmm I love the smell of Burning Man - Token

We were in the crowd waiting for the Man to burn 2012. Two people behind us were making out. They stop and he asks " Wait, you're not a republican are you?"
I'm guessing they just met that night.
