What's your defining story?

I heard a funny story here in Kuwait yesterday about a soldier hitting a camel a couple months ago while driving the same van that came to pick us up at the airport yesterday, and they had pictures to prove it.

Part of the followup to the story was the idea that everybody has one defining story that their friends tell about them (especially when they want to embarrass them). And so the idea was that this story had replaced the drivers old story as "the" defining story, and now she was actually happy about it because she hated the old story...

Which got me to wondering what my defining story is? What's yours? Care to comment?
