in memorial of deseret towers

freshman year story time. kids used to make out in the lobbies of DT… A LOT. it was a bit obnoxious, so a couple of buddies and i made a group on facebook called the anti-making out in DT lobbies league. we were pretty proud of it, and a ton of people joined. i even heard some other kids sitting in the cafeteria trying to make fun of us in order to justify their PDAs or something. anyway, one night we decided to make a stand. i typed up the following sign.


after going to the creamery and buying milk and licorice (i don’t know what that has to do with the story, i just know that we were carrying it around), we made our way around all of the lobbies of the complex and posted on of these signs in them. we got a number of dirty looks, especially from the making out couple that we posted the sign right above. it was all grand fun. the next morning the sign was gone from our lobby, but to our great delight, one of the signs stayed up for almost a week!

“We’ve been on the run
Driving in the sun
Looking out for #1

California here we come
Right back where we started from

Hustlers grab your guns
Your shadow weighs a ton
Driving down the 101

California here we come
Right back where we started from

Here we come!

On the stereo
Listen as we go
Nothing’s gonna stop me now

California here we come
Right back where we started from

Pedal to the floor
Thinkin' of the roar
Gotta get us to the show

California here we come
Right back where we started from

Here we come!”
