The Scoop

Never Have I Ever...
- Gone on a blind date - wait, does it count if you met them on the internet and had no idea what they looked like? I did that a few times in high school (I know, clearly stupid.)
- Watched someone die - I did hold a little birdie in my hands when it took its last breath, and that was pretty devestating, so I can't say I'd be anxious to check this one off
- Been to Mexico - how is this possible that I haven't been there yet?
- Jumped out of a plane - not yet, but I will
- Been on a helicopter - again, not yet, but this is something I'm dying to do. I heart helicopters. A lot.
- Recently colored with crayons
- Had major surgeries - yes, there was wisdom teeth and tubes in my ears, but both were outpatient and not a big deal
- Been on TV - maybe once with the can-a-thon, but I have no idea

4 tips left at the bar:

Andi said...

Ugh, your scary Internet mystery hook up days. Yes, that totally counts. .it's well beyond a friend actually setting you up on a blind date with someone they know and like for you!! I'm just saying. .you totally stressed me out back then.

The continents question was totally for you. .and I'd forgotten about your jaunt to SA, I was just planning on you besting us all with the addition of Australia.

I love that you are so color varied during the day! I usually get in a color mood.

Flashlight tag - the benefits of growing up in a neighborhood and with multiple siblings.

Tom's of Maine - interesting. I know it because we did a study on the category before, but didn't know I knew anyone that actually used it. If we do it again, I'll be sure to send you some.

Oh man, I remember the Man-of-War attack all too well. That thing actually took you under water. It was scary. But wasn't the lifeguard cute? Please tell me he was.

penelope said...

Holy shit, don't the Man of Wars stick all over you with their little tentacles? I've heard it's WAY worse than a jellyfish.

niki said...

Yes, Pen. I had tentacle marks from my upper thigh to my ankle. I took a picture, and I was really proud because part of it looked like the Eiffel Tower!

Yes, Temp. The lifeguard was very cute, and all I could think of when he was neutralizing my sting with meat tenderizer was, "Why didn't I shave my legs?!"

Free Tom's of Maine would be SWEET! That stuff ain't cheap.
