150 Things You May Have Done (74 Of Which I Did)



The following is stolen from Stu, who in turn stole it from Shafa. You can feel free to steal it from me. It is a list of things that you might have done during your life. The idea is to post it and bold those items that you actually did.

I've bolded 74 of them. I'm saying I did them, but a panel of judges deciding on the matter might say that I'm stretching the truth on a couple of them. However, I'm going to take it one unnecessary step further and give you a little Suldoggian history to go with some of the items, so you can make up your own mind on the nebulous ones.

Today, the list; tomorrow, the stories. Be sure to come back then.

141 - Coed Naked Snow Jogging.

If you previously weren't intrigued enough to come back tomorrow, I bet you are now.

like this one and I have done it

Suldog said...

Um, perhaps it wasn't clear? I have done the things that appear in BOLD print; have NOT done the things in regular print.

I have not been divorced. I have not performed in The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

James Cooper said...

Coed Naked Snow Jogging - where the women are women and the men are almost women?

Some folks doesnt read such good...

Suldog said...

Tut, tut. I love all of my readers, even those who don't get it the first time through. Actually, having a reading deficiency probably doesn't hurt with my stuff.

sween said...

Bah. I am at a mere 54.

However, my #141 -- "Has fired a cannon" -- is happily bolded.

Kailani said...

I'm always laughing when I shouldn't be. I have no idea why.

Your instructions were perfectly clear to me! lol!

Stu said...

To be clear, you were clear. You specifically wrote: "The idea is to post it and bold those items that you actually did. ... I've bolded 74 of them."

Check the stats on literacy in this country. Most folks don't read a single book after high school. Whee!!!

Come on. I saw you dance once.

Fess Up - there's hardly a person in the world who hasn't sung out loud in the car and just kept right on when someone looked.

So, I think you should "bold" 36 and 102.

Suldog said...

36 and 102 remain unbolded.

I may have danced like a fool, but I sure as hell didn't want anybody to see it. Same for the singing. I've done it, but as soon as I knew someone was looking, I stopped singing and started blushing.

Hey, Sween - Fired a cannon? Do tell.
