I Got Tagged!

Actually, I got tagged twice with two different memes. April got me first, so here we go...this one's kinda long, but you might learn something new about me.

Put an "X" by all the things you've done and share it with your friends.

1. (x) Smoked a cigarette. Yeah...unfortunately started smoking when I was 19. Still working on quitting.
2. ( ) Crashed a friend's car.
3. ( ) Stolen a car.
4. (x) Been in love. Of course! I am truly, madly, deeply in love with my husband! And yes, I'd been in love before him, but not this way.
5. (x) Been dumped. A couple of times...usually it was me that initiated breakups.
6. (x) Shoplifted. For some reason, when I was a kid, I stole some Hot Wheels cars. Don't really know why...
7. (x) Been fired/laid off. I don't know anyone that hasn't at some time or another.
8. (x) Been in a fist fight. Not really...I did get jumped by a boyfriend's ex once though...she just didn't like me. I would've fought back, but when she started on me she knocked me down and my hearing aid went flying off into the grass...I was too busy trying to find it to hit her back. Stupid bitch.
9. (x) Snuck out of your parent's house. Yeah, and got caught too.

I did learn a lot about you. That was nice!

I might hijack it for my blog.

Midwestern City Boy said...

Wow. That is a long quiz! I've seen this one before but have never done it. We did learn some things about you but it probably took days to finish.

Jenn: Hope it wasn't anything that made me seem nuts! Hijack it, please! I'd like to see how yours would turn out.

MCB: Yeah, it was a bit longer than I'd thought. Glad you learned some new stuff...actually it only took me maybe two hours, and that's with gettin' up to take care of kids, etc.

AW come on Mamak you've never gone puddle jumpin (#30)??? You really missed out let me tell ya .. I used to love to hit the puddles hard...My pants would be wet all they way to my hips. *LOL*. Wanna know a secret ???? I do it sometimes even now ;-)

MamaKBear said...

Kali: Nope, I really haven't...dunno why, just never appealed to me I guess. Something tells me that now that I have kids I probably will be jumping in some puddles sometime in the future! LOL
