Strike Out Challenge
This challenge is gonna be fun, y'all! And very personal, so y'all beware...y'all may discover some deep, dark secrets about yours truly. *winks*
Thanks to the lovely Saraina Whitney for tagging me! Y'all check out her post here!
The rules for the tag are simple (like, so simple that they don't have rules): just strike out whichever of the items on the list you've done! And you can explain the how, when, and why of it, if you like! And I guess you can tag however many people you want...and link back to the person who tagged you...and have FUN!
Kissed someone – I wish. *coughs* I mean...no. Not in that way.
Gone to a rock concert – Oof, nope. As much as I love rock, nope. I don’t do concerts...and neither do my parents, for that matter. Fine by me.
Helped someone – Yeesh, I should hope so!
Gone fishing – Yes! And I’d do it more often if I had the patience...and the assurance that I could eat the fish afterwards.
Watched four movies in one night – Oh, gosh. No. Just watching one takes way too long as it is, due to having so many little siblings.
Lied to someone – Pft, never. I’m known ‘round the world for my honesty! (If you caught that reference, God bless you, lovely person.)
Failed a subject – Now I really mean never. Couldn’t dare ruin my perfect GPA.
Been in a car accident – Thank God, no!
Been in a tsunami – Also thank God, no! I...I honestly don’t think I could handle a natural disaster. *shudders*
Watched someone die (including pets) – Pets (other people's, not mine) and livestock, yes. People, no.
Been to a funeral – Unfortunately, yes.
Burned yourself – Oh, gosh, so many times. I still have a scar from one...and once, I burned myself on our curling iron, and I ended up with the brand name etched on my arm when we attended a family Christmas party.
Run a marathon – BAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Never.
Spend over 10,000 bucks in one day – Dude, I’ve never even seen 10k. Let alone possessed it. Never mind spent it. Much less in A DAY. Wow.
Flown on an aeroplane – Not yet!
Written an 18 page letter (front & back) – Whew. I can write a pretty long letter, but this? This is commitment, y’all.
Gone skiing – Nope. I am a Southerner who never travels, so there ya have it.
Lost someone you loved – Yes...in more ways than one, I suppose.
Got into trouble for something you didn’t do – ALL. THE. TIME. It’s my purpose as the oldest child.
Stolen a book from a library – …Pretty sure I gave all those back...
Gone to a different country – Man, I wish!
Gambled in a casino – Um...is that even legal for a girl my age?
Been in a school play – Do church musicals count?
Taken a lie detector test – Nope...but I’d love to! I think...
Voted for someone on a reality TV show – Nah. Don’t watch “reality” TV.
Read more than 20 books a year – Oh, absolutely!
Gone to Europe – *sighs* One of these days...
Had a surgery – Thank the Lord, never!
Had stitches – Same here!
Ridden a tuk-tuk (autorickshaw) – Nope, but I imagine it’d be fun!
Had more than 5 IM conversations going on at once – Oh, yes. I am such a scattered multi-tasker.
Been in a fist fight – Fight, yes. Fist, no. I can’t throw a decent punch, and fortunately no one has ever attempted to throw one at me, so I’m good for now.
Had a pet – A pet cactus named Langston, yes. An animal? Never, and I don’t want that to change any time soon.
Petted a wild animal – Dude, what do you think? Absolutely! Baby deer (it was the cutest), snakes, fish, rabbits...basically whatever has stayed still long enough and isn’t a cat.
Had your own credit card & bought something with it – Debit card, yes. Credit card, no. And probably not ever.
Dyed your hair – Unpopular opinion here...but I don’t even believe in hair dye, much less have I ever used it. (I did wanna have pink hair as a kid, though. Thanks to Stephanie from LazyTown. I mean, who doesn’t??)
Got a tattoo – Again, against my personal beliefs. *winks* Plus...that’s just...really frightening.
Had something pierced – OKAY OKAY I’M HOLINESS SO WHAT. *chuckles* Seriously, though, I could pass for Mennonite or something.
Got a straight A – Of course!
Taken pictures with a webcam – Ew, hate to admit it, but yes. And they sucked.
Gone to sleep with music on – Oh, absolutely! I used to every time as a toddler, and as I got a wee bit older, we had the most wonderful white noise player. *sighs*
