10 Things I’ve Done That You Probably Haven’t

Pin It

10 ThingsA few authors I follow (John Scalzi & Mary Robinette Kowal) recently posted lists of 10 things they’ve done that most people probably haven’t.  I thought this sounded like a fun way to close out the year on my blog so I decided to play along.

Leave me comment if you’d like more details. (Unless you’re a member of law enforcement inquiring about #4)

  1. Participated in two water births by actually being in the birth tub
  2. Successfully performed the Heimlich Maneuver on a choking person
  3. Was punched in the jaw in high school by someone who mistook me for someone else
  4. Successfully evaded the police (more than once, actually)
  5. Was sexually harassed, physically, in the workplace (by a woman)
  6. Stood on a table in a downtown university hotel food court to serenade someone an apology
  7. Was bitten by a horse and cried because my feelings were hurt, not my finger
  8. Asked someone to marry me while standing beneath the world’s tallest Christmas tree
  9. Hand-delivered a single rose to a girl who I never had the courage to ask for a date
  10. Won $1,000 dollars on the radio by being the correct caller after the “money song” was played

EDITED TO ADD:

Bonus:  I was also once chased by more than a dozen “ninjas” after some friends and I inadvertently stumbled on a martial arts style gang fight in a secluded park late one night.
