Have you ever written your name on a water tower?

Asked by john65pennington (29187points) February 27th, 2010

I was about 15 years old and i guess i must have invented the first graffetti. i climbed my neighborhood water tower and painted my initials on its side for the world to see. to my amazement, you can still see my initials painted there, after all these years. i also carved my initials in an old oak tree back then. its still there(barely), along with my then girlfriends initials. am i the only person that has made these adventures a part of my personal history or am i not alone in this endeavor? what about you? what did you do in your past that still lingers in your memory today?

Not yet, but I did pee my name in the snow for the first time this winter. I hope it’s still there in the spring!

I used to write shitty goth poems in the bathroom stalls in school.

I got in trouble.

I still carve into trees.
There are quite a few buildings I tagged in 9th/10th grade that have never been cleaned off.
There are marks in sidewalks where we wrote in the wet cement.
I shaved my name on a dogs back and it’s faint, but it’s there.
We have buried jars of random notes all around this town.

I left my mark in so many places in this town.

I’ve always been completely fascinated by tree carving cement trolling building tagging jar burying dog shaving girls.

When we were younger, my boyfriend carved our initials into a tree, bench and spray painted them under a bridge.

He used to be so romantic!

Yes, I did a water tower when I was twelve. I remember fondly of my father’s lecture back then, how he hoped I was a lady and didn’t do such things. I was mum. The tower came down a few years ago and with it my initials.

I never had the pleasure, but apparently Billy Bob found his muse in Charlene :)
