What kind of story are we looking for?  I'll share one of mine as an example.

My Wackiest Valentine's Day Ever
On V-Day during my junior year of high school, I was dating a guy who had already graduated. As the school day started, one of my girlfriends (the one who had introduced us) couldn't stop laughing as she told me, "You won't believe what he's going to do. You're going to be totally surprised!" Then, nothing happened for hour after hour. The suspense had me on edge in all my classes, waiting for this extraordinary event.

Finally, ten minutes before the end of the school day, a gorilla walked into my math class. He was carrying a bouquet of chocolate roses. He walked up to my desk, with all of my classmates staring, open-mouthed, and offered me the bouquet. Then, he turned around and walked out of the room.

Naturally, the guy in the gorilla suit was the guy I had been dating. The costume was a rental. He had had to get permission from the school to be on campus and interrupt my class. Some guys just love a Grand Romantic Gesture.  Too bad that relationship fizzled a couple of weeks later.

I wonder what he's up to these days?
