The ‘Have You Ever’ version. I saw this posted somewhere in that big wide world of social media and I thought it was fun and wanted to bring it here! I did something similar a while back in a thirty questions version (Did you miss that? Check it out here and here!).
In the interest of being open since it is a ‘new’ year and letting you get to know me a little better! Join in if you wish by answering and/or asking! It’ll be fun!
Have you ever….
Been arrested? – No! Good heavens. However, I have bailed someone out before.
Been married? – Nope.
Been divorced? – No. See answer above.
Fallen in love? – Yup, I sure have.
Had your heart broken? – Yes, in more ways than one.
Skipped school? – Yes, but I did not do it until I was in college. Even then I only did it a few times. It was mostly horse related. I know you are surprised.
Watched someone give birth? – Not a human! I have been very close to when a human gave birth. My oldest sister, A!
Watched someone die? – Yes, but not a person.
Been to Canada? – No, but I have always wanted to! Especially Alberta and British Colombia.
Ridden in An Ambulance? – Yes. They made me when I had to evict my appendix forcibly from my body when I was 25. Martin Luther King Day. Rather rude way to spend a day off.
Been to Hawaii? – Yes! Once many years ago. My Pops‘ brother, lovely wife, and one of my cousins (my uncle’s youngest) live there. It is high on my list to go again now that I know what it is really like. Aunt M (Pops’ sister) is going to visit at the end of this month and I seriously considered buying a last minute ticket to tag along. Unfortunately, work spoiled that plan.
Been to Europe? – Yes! Once and by myself! That was exciting! If you missed the adventure…You can read all about it here!: Part 1. Part 2. Part 3. Part 4. Part 5. That is a lot of parts! Well, I was there for two weeks and there was a lot to cover! Horses and country and food and wine! I still dream about the best ride and the best dinner. I use those spices I bought often and am thinking about ordering more online.
Been to Washington D.C.? – No. And I am still upset about it. I remember it. My Mother took my older two sisters to D. C. and left me and Pops behind. I remember throwing a fit about it and Mamma told me I was too young for all the walking. I did not believe it then and I still do not now! I don’t remember how old I was other than that I was in elementary school.
Visited Florida? – Does the Miami airport count? I was on my way to the Dominican Republic. It was interesting.
Seen the Grand Canyon? – No. Many find that odd given my profession. I kinda sorta agree! It is on the list.
Flown in a helicopter? – No, but I want to! I wish I had one on most week days. Too much traffic in this dang city.
Been on a cruise? – No, and I am not so sure I want to.
Served on a jury? – No, but I have been close!
Been in a movie – …for school!
Danced in the rain – Heck to the yes! Many times. More than I can count. That is what life is about! What IT is about!
Been to Los Angeles – No.
Been to New York City? – Yes to visit my best friend from high school on Memorial Day Weekend. I had such a great time. I thought I would not care for it that much. I did not even get to catch a show. Sounds like I need to go back!
Played/Sang in a band – No, but I dream about it! When I am in my car. Alone. With the volume turned way up! …so I can not actually hear myself sing!
Laughed so much you cried – Of course! Many, many, many times! Indeed, this too is what life is about. Most distinctly that I remember, I did it on our ride back in October. So many times in fact that I lost count.
Caught snowflake on your tongue – Yes. I have also watched horses stare up into the sky at falling snow. I was blessed enough to watch Darcy play in the snow her first and only time. I still can not look at those photos. You can go look at them.
Had children? – Nope, but I pray I am blessed to be able to one day.
Had a pet(s)? – Ha! Yes!
Been sledding on a big hill? – I do not think so. I think Mamma got wise to that with the first two. And well…we live relatively flat and snow free.
Been downhill skiing? – Yes. Once. I do not remember being too terribly good at it, but then again, I was young. We are more of mountains in summer type people anyhow.
Ridden on a motorcycle? – Yes, with the adult neighbor of a childhood friend when I was in elementary school. I remember thinking at the moment that my mother might not be too happy about this.
Traveled to all 50 states? – No, but that sure would be cool! I have been to a few. You can read about my most recent new multi state visit here!
Been to a drive-in movie? – Yes. In college. I do not even remember what it was, but I do remember that my high school best friend was in town for a visit.
Ridden an elephant? – No, I have never ridden an elephant, but I really want to!
Ridden a horse? – Ha! Hahaha. Yes, I have ridden quite a few horses!
Been on TV? – I do not think so? I have been (well, my back has) on a photo ad for my university without knowing it.
Been in the newspaper? – I do not think so.
Stayed in the Hospital? – Yes. The aforementioned, blessed appendix! Good riddance!
Donated blood? – No. If I did not hyperventilate every time I had an I.V. I would.
Gotten a piercing? – My ears, but not till I was in college. People think that is strange. I suppose it is. Now that they are pierced, I am rarely without earrings.
Gotten a tattoo? – No, but I have thought about it. This might be surprising to you. It is kinda surprising to me to be honest. Like I will never do it, but…
Driven a stick shift vehicle? – Yes, but not very well.
Been scuba diving? – No. Kinda scares me.
Been snorkeling? – Yes. In Hawaii and maybe the Dominican Republic. I can not remember.
Gotten a speeding ticket? – …yes…Until not that long ago I would have proudly said only one many years ago! Well, I can not say that now…
Gotten stitches? – …APPENDIX…Although, really there were not all that many.
Traveled Alone? – Yes! Read above about my adventure in France! I highly recommend the practice every now and then.
Join in on the fun!
Walk in love, dear readers!
