100 Things, Part 4

76. Seen the Changing of the Guard in London

I've been to London, and I've seen the guard, and they happened to be changing, but it wasn't really all that exciting. I've been in marching band. Now that's exciting.

77. Broken a bone

My toe. That was before I drank a million gallons of milk a week.

78. Been on a speeding motorcycle

Speeding... Well, that depends on your definition of speeding. Elegyrl and I are supposed to rent a Harley and take a trip sometime, but we haven't nailed down the specifics yet (or the means).

79. Seen the Grand Canyon in person

Do you ever come to the edge of a really tall drop and just want to fling yourself out into the open air? It doesn't help that I fly so well in my dreams. Needless to say, I didn't jump.

80. Published a book

Still working on that.

81. Visited the Vatican

No, but I've been to Temple Square.

82. Bought a brand new car

Brand new to me, yes.

83. Walked in Jerusalem

New Jerusalem, yes; Old Jerusalem, no.

84. Had your picture in the newspaper

Who hasn't?

85. Read the entire Bible

Yes. And there's some mighty interesting stuff in there.

86. Visited the White House

Blah. Sometimes too much stock is set in these hugely famous landmarks. Just going to a place does not make you a better person.

87. Killed and prepared an animal for eating

I do not kill animals to eat.

88. Had chickenpox

Yes, with my sister. Isn't that sweet?

89. Saved someone’s life

How am I supposed to know? I don't think they'd tell me if I had.

90. Sat on a jury

Got out of that one by moving to Utah...

91. Met someone famous

Lots of someones, actually. Yeehaw.

92. Joined a book club

Yes.

93. Lost a loved one

... It's kind of complicated...

94. Had a baby

Do you think I'd have time to do silly things like this if I had a baby?

95. Seen the Alamo in person

It looked just like the picture.

96. Swam in the Great Salt Lake

That's disgusting.

97. Been involved in a law suit

No, but I've written letters. I am a letter writer.

98. Owned a cell phone

That would be interesting to determine the percentage of bloggers posting this same blog who had never owned a cell phone. I am guessing there are not too many.

99. Been stung by a bee

Dang bees.

100. Totally copied a post from someone else's blog to your own

Ha, ha, this is supposed to be funny and ironic because it shows that you just did that so of course you would have to make it bold and everyone would read it and laugh ha ha ha.

And that's how I feel about those 100 things.

Your answers were so fun to read. Thank you for sharing them with us! So much more exciting than my blog post on the subject.

Perhaps you have a more informative or entertaining list of "have you ever..." questions?
