"The Way, Way Back," starring Steve Carrell and Sam Rockwell, concerns a summer vacation, including life lessons learned at a water park.

To win free passes to a July 18 screening of the film at Keystone Art Cinema, all you have to do is share an awkward summer memory below. I'll pick winners at random until all the passes are gone.

Good luck. And hope you are enjoying your summer.

  • drive in theater
    got lost in drive in movie and could['t remember type of car my date was driving
  • Again?
    Having to take "Swimming for Beginners" lessons. Twice.
  • Shark!
    I refused to go swimming for a whole summer after seeing the movie Jaws because I thought a shark could swim up through the dran and make its way into the local community pool.
  • Awkward summer memiry
    Went to summer music camp, met a really cute, smart guy. Went to the beach with him, my boyfriend from home was there.
  • awkward
    dude in front of me at the surf rider lost his swimming trunks .. the water pressure knocked them right off... luckily his feet caught them before they got completely pushed off or else i would have had to help him out by getting them... instead "all" i had to do was turn away so i wasn't looking at his bare arse
  • itchy
    At summer camp got a little poison ivy, umm, down there...
  • Impressive- NOT!
    Ran into a parked car on a bicycle as I was waving good-bye to a boy I was trying to impress.
  • DOH!
    Fell off a pontoon into White River while trying to light a cigarette on a tiki torch. Bad form!!!! Now a non-smoker.
  • More a scar than a memory
    Debuting my girth-slimming new tank suit at the community pool when I was about 10, and getting stuck in it after it got wet. Had ripped the skin on my torso raw by the time I wrestled it off in the changing room. Awkward!
  • Shocking
    Touching an electric fence while commenting "It's amazing these two little wires keep those huge cows in there..."
  • Summer camp
    Went away to summer camp for one week when I was 11 with my younger sister. We used to meet in the camp's chapel and cry together because we were so homesick.
  • awkward summer moment
    Driving as a passenger with a buddy of mine. His brother was in the service and we were in his Mustang. Driving around the "Tee-Pee", reeving the engine and the car died. Everyone in the parking lot started honking their horns and clapping
  • Awkward
    I packed a bag for a night at the lake and you would have thought I was packing for the entire summer. Upon walking up some rocks towards our camp site, my luggage hit the rocks and everything spilled out. You can really get a glimpse of who someone is by the contents of their suitcase. My new boyfriend found out a lot about me with just one spilled suitcase.
  • Camping
    Went camping... Woke up nearly floating. Water up to our knees.
  • awkward summer memory
    basically anytime a bathing suit was involved...
  • Swimming
    Didn't know how to swim when I went to camp - had to learn on the fly to not look like an idiot.

  1. Why is the street configuration necessary? New York and Michigan get congested enough as 4-lane one-way streets, imagine how bad they'll be when they are only 2-lanes in each direction. Furthermore, there are TONS of flashing lights and yield signs for pedestrians EVERYWHERE on IUPUI's campus, but I swear I'm the only driver who yields to the pedestrians there. Just enforce the existing signs!

  2. Excellent investment! Many times people are too shortsighted to see that investments such as these are just as important as "fixing potholes". And, perhaps I missed it, but could you point out where your / our pockets are being pilfered in this deal, Italiano? I didn't read where any of your (or my) tax dollars are involved.

  3. I see the same whiney liberals complaining about every single thing that Mayor Ballard does to improve the city. There could be an article about him saving a drowning child and your liberals would find a way to complain about.

  4. Oh snap! It's on! Ballard vs. Hogsett. Indy is due for a "real" mayoral race, this will be epic!

  5. This is obviously good for the city and all of its residents. Would you object to any improvements to anything in our city until every pothole is filled? Why? Look, there's a proposal for roads in place, with funding proposed as well, it simply requires the City Council and the Major to agree. It will happen (not soon enough, perhaps, but it will happen). In the meantime, yes, let's do the common sense, demonstrably smart things that will make our city better.
