So it was two in the morning and I had the urge to pee, and so as I was putting on my boots to urinate, I hear someone say something but I couldn't make it out. When I stepped outside I hear "Hey Siri.", and then I went to go pee and when I came back from peeing some person was still saying "Hey Siri". So the next day we were all eating breakfast, I wanted to figure out who was the annoying one last night saying "Hey Siri.' in their tent. It turns out it was Victor, he explained that he was looking for his phone in his tent.
This story takes place in Big Bear on top of a hill at the end of a neighborhood. They told us if you need to pee while you're trying to sleep , don't try to hold it, go pee. In my mind I was like "Man, I've held before not to go to the bathroom, I got this." I was so wrong. Night came and I learned that when you want to sleep in temperature of 20 degrees, once you wake up, it's over. I woke up with the feeling to pee, and I was like "I can hold it." and looked at my phone, 1:55 a.m. I also learned that night if you wake up at night trying to sleep, you'll be awake for 20 minutes and sleep for 10 over and over again. I tried to hold in my urine but couldn't so I got my boots on and got out the tent with my flashlight. Walking away from my tent I noticed someone a big yellow stain next to one of the tents, so someone was a little to lazy or tired to walk out. I urinated which felt like my bladder was going to explode but I made it in time. I went back to my tent feeling like a new man, with the comfort of not needing to focus on anything. While getting settled, I hear another tent opening up, meaning someone had to go pee, minutes I hear a female voice talking in their sleep saying "No, no, run run run, no." over and over again for 5 minutes, next I can hear Lazlo a couple of tents away snoring like a bear in hibernation, and finally I can Panchitowoo (Francisco) dying in his tent not being able to breathe because he was sick, making sounds like Darth Vader having an asthma attack trying to breathe in, and sounding calm breathing out. In my mind I was like "Panchito breathe breathe!" and then I noticed I lost my phone somewhere in the mess of my tent. So there's a feature that the iPhone 7 has that if you say "Hey Siri." she'll respond, and I said it twice in like 2:45 a.m in complete silence sounding crazy and then I remember I didn't have service so she won't respond. I grabbed my flashlight and found my phone somewhere under sheets. Morning came, 7 a.m, getting out to see some people talking and making food, I talk to some people about their sleep last night and Regina goes, "Who was saying hey siri last night? I was creeped out". Looks like people are weird in 2 a.m.
