Have I or haven't I?

Our friend Ami asked these fun questions and I couldn't resist answering them....

1  Stood on top of a very high mountain or cliff, looking down at countryside, or out to sea?  

Yes both and I always have to shout out loud.

2  Lay on your back on a hot summer's night, listening to the crickets chirping, and watching the satellites as they chase each other across the heavens? 

Yes but going back a long time.

3  Skinny-dipped at midnight?  

Yes when we have been on holiday in warmer climes.

4  Intentionally or inadvertently swum with sharks? 

No thankfully.

5  Broken a bone in your body? 

No though surprised with all the things I used to get up to that I never broke a bone. Had a hair line fracture from jogging a couple of years ago.

6  Driven a car at speeds in excess of 120 mph? 

No. Wouldn't dream of doing that speed. 

7  Played "Pooh Sticks"? 

Oh gosh yes. 

8  Run in a "Pancake" race? 

No not a pancake race but have done a couple of egg and spoon relay races for charity.

9  Had your eyelashes dyed? 

No not for me.

10  Ridden a horse naked? 

No. Bet it would be uncomfortable. I could imagine you doing that Ami.

11  Punted down the River Cam? (or any other river) 

No. I wouldn't feel safe in a punt. I didn't go on a gondola when we were in Venice either.

12  Played tennis in a short white tennis skirt whilst wearing minimal knickers?

Haven't played a proper game of tennis since school and then we had to wear full white knickers. So No.

13  Helped an inebriated husband up the stairs at 2 in the morning? 

No. I've left him and his friend asleep on the sofas after a stag do. Couldn't help both of them upstairs.

14  Been too scared to get out of a swimming pool whilst on holiday, due to a very large Doberman sitting on the edge watching you?  


15  Sat in a deckchair snoozing happily whilst the sound of leather on willow echoes distantly in your ears? 

Yes but not for a few years.  

16  Taken a ride on the Maid of the Mist under the Niagara Falls?

No. Sounds wonderful and think I need to put it on my bucket list.

17  Climbed up something - rock face, climbing wall, rope in a sports hall, long ladder, tree - and been too scared witless to climb back down? 

Yes and no problem coming down. Don't mind heights at all. 

18  Been too liberal with the "Eau de Cologne" which then ran down where it shouldn't, which in turn caused you to hop madly around and rip your knickers off and throw them as far from you as you could? 

LOL. No.

19  Made snow angels?

Yes with my son and in my younger days with the girls after a night out. Well they told me I did.

20  Lost a shoe in a ploughed field on a moonlight walk home after a party?  

Lost a couple of shoes on the way home from parties but never in a ploughed field.

21  Shrieked loudly, due to being spanked hard, and frightened away a visitor/s who turned and ran back down your drive - and now you never will know who was about to knock on your door. And you are desperately hoping they will never ask...  

After many years of this I'm sure I have.

Thanks Ami.

Have a fun weekend.
