008"It's not an overly powerful story I'm afraid - just something I think of fondly, that reminds me of a certain time of life, and makes me laugh," Jessie explains.
"It was Adam, a high school friend and my first boyfriend, who said it. When we were 17 and first were able to drive, we would go on long trips at the weekend through the Peak District in the UK where we were living.
"My little Fiat Seicento would always struggle to get up the steep mountain roads, and one time, as it was chugging along painfully, we were debating the route - I was sure we were heading south, and he thought we were heading north.
"As back up for his point of view, (in a playful debate, not a fight, i'd like to add!) he came out with the line of my SOTM! (which of course, is very silly, as you can very much be driving up a hill but be heading south!)
"A long, thoughtful silence ensued until we both burst out laughing!! He also realised how silly what he'd just said was!
"In all following trips, Adam was fondly teased by all our friends about this, and references to it are mockingly used in navigation debates amongst that old group of friends to this day!
"(Adam is also one of the ppl who commented on the SOTM at the time, acknowledging his involvement!)"
