Thanks to ECS ....
Have you ever:
Nope. I’ve tried but have been advised against it. Even if I weren’t a beer barrel with feet, my veins run deep. It would be like drilling for oil.

Read a book in one night?
On many occasions. I can read too damned fast.
Tee-Pee'd a house?
Among other things.
Opened someone else's mail?
Yes. Otherwise, the kids would have piles of it.
Mowed the lawn?

Ayuh. It helps you become a beer keg with feet.
Ayuh – usually by playing sick.

Been locked out of the house?
Yes…but not for long.
Marched in a parade?

Been stuck in an elevator?
A couple of time
Broken a bone?

Gone white-water rafting?
No..closest thing was canoeing down 65 miles of the Missouri River over 2 days.
Wished you had chosen a different career?
I can’t say I chose the one I have now.
Been on a hayride?
Avoided doing something because of a superstition?
More than likely..what I can’t say off the top of my head

Not bloody likely.

Demanded a raise?
Does hinting and bitching regularly count?
Hit an animal on accident while driving?
Yes a few times and I find it very disturbing.
Stayed at a bed and breakfast?

For about 10 seconds before eating it.
Been to New York City?
Haven’t been to the northeast.
Seen a ghost?
I’ve seen a few things and had a few very odd experiences that I could chalk up to the paranormal. Living in a 100 year old house will do that!
