Boof your Buddy Week

The week when buds turn on each other


Ah yes, the fabulously decadent boof your buddy week. Another way to say it is screw your buddy week. This is done the week before finals week when the fall semester is coming to a close. It is a week of unabated pranks. A time of year when you find soggy wafer cookies in your shoes when you try to put your feet in them. Sure, you went to take a shower in your robe. Where did that robe go? You can be sure one of your buddies knows, and is behind the crime. All's fair in love, war, and boof your buddy week (a lesser known version of the famous saying). Well, as I recall, boof your buddy week never lasts more than three days or so before the Commanding Officer calls it off. He does this because things escalate to a point where they have crossed the line. This happens quite rapidly. I remember Donny Crowe and Phil Cordova were mad because someone had put shoe polish on their best low quarters and set them on fire. This kind of boof had to be answered in kind. Anyway, Robby Paris and Dave Feuerbacher shared a room. Cordova and Crowe secretly entered their room, and set a line of incense sticks in a drawer. Then they clogged the sink, and started the water flowing. They buttressed the door with towels upon their exit to keep the ruse alive as long as possible. About 25 minutes later the upperclassmen became suspicious when water began seeping through the waterlogged towels and into the hallway. The door was opened, and about a foot of water burst out of Dave's room and gushed out into the hall (I remember quite clearly since we lived across the hall, and got the brunt of the water released). Also, the air was a cloud of rose scented smoke from the incense. What a mess that was. It was about that time that Zac Crouch declared our first boof your buddy week to be over.
