Do this, don't do that
So the question is, "Have you ever....?"
Smoked a cigarette or tried it: Never touched the stuff.
Crashed a friend's car: No.
Stolen a car: No.
Been dumped: This implies being in a position from which dumping is possible. (As a rule, however, I tend to flee first.)
Been fired/laid off: Not lately, but yes.
Been in a fist fight: No.
Snuck out of your parent's house: Yes.
Been arrested: No. I have had some interesting encounters with the police, but none got to this point.
Gone on a blind date: Yes. To make sure I didn't come back, she left town.
Lied to a friend: If I had, it was for something utterly trivial.
Skipped school: More than I should have.
Seen someone die: If you mean "at that exact moment," no.
Been to Mexico: No.
Eaten Sushi: No. There's something disquieting about it.
Met someone in person from the internet: Dozens.
Taken pain-killers: Almost daily, it seems.
Had a tea party: Not since I was five.
Cheated while playing a game: Not intentionally.
Fallen asleep at work: Sometimes I do my best work under those conditions.
Used a fake ID: No.
Felt an earthquake: Yes. I did not enjoy it much, and said something unkind about Carole King afterwards.
Touched a snake: Yes. What's more, one or two of them tried to return the favor.
Been robbed: Break-in about five years ago.
Petted a reindeer/goat: When I was very, very young, maybe.
Won a contest: I won a football pool at work once. (Well, okay, twice.)
Been suspended from school: Yes.
Been in a car accident: A petroleum tanker drove over me in 1985.
Had braces: No.
Eaten a whole pint of ice cream in one night: Almost did a quart once.
Witnessed a crime: No.
Swam in the ocean: If you want to call my haphazard thrashing "swimming," then yes.
Sung karaoke: I have performed; I hesitate to call it "singing."
Paid for a meal with only coins: Once, but it was like $2.69.
Laughed until some kind of beverage came out of your nose: Not during this, but yes.
Been kissed under mistletoe: No, which is particularly galling, since it's the state flower.
Crashed a party: I seldom go even when I'm invited.
Worn pearls: Not my style.
Jumped off a bridge: No.
Ate dog/cat food: No.
Kissed a mirror: No.
Glued your hand to something: No, which surprises me.
Done a one-handed cartwheel: Not even with two hands.
Talked on the phone for more than 6 hours: I think my record is about 4:20.
Didn't take a shower for a week: No way.
Pick and ate an apple right off the tree: Yes.
Been told by a complete stranger that you're hot: No. Nor by acquaintances or friends, either.
Been drafted by the A's: They would have told me, wouldn't they?
