Friend Makin’ Mondays: Have You Ever?

It’s late, and it’s been a long and interesting (and mostly great) day.  I just can’t believe it’s Monday again already! I have several thoughts going on in my head that I may or may not share later.   I had a pseudo-date last night which didn’t seem to go well, but I got in late and didn’t have the energy to write up new questions.  I’ve asked these questions in the past, but I noticed that some of my answers are quite different now.  I hope you enjoy answering them!

If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here at: so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!


Have You Ever?


1. Jumped out of an airplane?  No, but I might do it at some point.

2. Lived alone?  Yep.  I really love it too.

3. Met a celebrity? Yep.

4. Said something to someone that you immediately regret saying? Sadly, yes

5. Had a manicure/pedicure? Of course.

6.  Gotten a hickey? Yep.

7. Owned a pet that was not a dog or a cat?  Nope.

8. Been outside of your home country?  Definitely.  I love to travel, and I’d like to go back to Europe soon.  Just saying. Does anyone want to join me?

9. Kissed your best friend? Yep.  Wow…we’re getting personal here today, aren’t we?

10. Eaten food that fell on the floor?  Um, I don’t remember specific instances, but I’m pretty confident that I’ve done this.

11. Met someone online? Yes.

12. Been on TV? Yep.

13. Had braces?  I have Invisaligns now.  I only have two trays left, but I don’t wear them enough…Sigh..

14. Gone skinny dipping?  I’m trying to think about whether or not I’ve ever done it which probably means I have not.

15. Been to the opera? Oh yes.  I love the opera.

16. Been caught making out by a policeman?  Yep.  The last time it happened, we were caught by a campus cop on a college campus.

17. Sung in public? Yep…I used to sing a lot back in the day.  I sang with Toby Keith, Don Henley from The Eagles and others.  I also used to sing the national anthem at football and basketball games.  I loved that.

18. Handed out candy on Halloween? Yep.  I like to dress up and hand out candy, but I haven’t done it since I left New York.  Maybe I will do something more exciting this year.

19. Been snowed in? Yep.  It happened a few times a year in NY.

20. Fallen in front of other people? Ha..yep.  It used to happen all the time, but it hasn’t happened in a long time…thankfully.

21. Cheated on a test? Nope.  I like school, and I don’t mind studying.  Sure, I’m a nerd, but I definitely don’t have to cheat on tests.

22. Regretted saying “I love you” to someone? Hmm, I think I’ve said it a few times when I shouldn’t have, but I always meant it at the time.  Do I regret that?  Yep, but I don’t beat myself up about it.  I just try to be much more selective about saying it these days.

23. Finished a meal in a restaurant and realized that you didn’t have your wallet? Not that I recall, but that sounds like something I would do.

24. Shot a gun? Yep, but only target practice.  I was taught by an expert, and I quickly learned that while I respect guns and the rights of folks to own them, I have no interest in them beyond that.

25. Heard a song that was written for (or about) you? Yes.


Now it’s your turn to answer this week’s questions! Don’t forget to come back here and link up in the comments!  Happy Monday, friends!

    I’ve never played “Have You Ever …” but we had a game in high school called “I Have Never …” which I always won (I can do it just with food, never having eaten a pepperoni pizza, a hamburger or apple pie).

    I had never done many of these things either … but there were a few I had!

    1. Jumped out of an airplane? No, and no dreams of doing it either!
    2. Lived alone? Yes, in my past I did. I didn’t mind it at all, and would even call it enjoyable. 
    3. Met a celebrity? The only one I’ve ever really met is John Leguizamo – and I ran into him at an eye care clinic in Phoenix. He was gracious and gave me an autograph 
    4. Said something to someone that you immediately regret saying? Ohhh yeah. I can have a quick temper and say things that I don’t mean if I’m not careful.
    5. Had a manicure/pedicure? Nope. Neither. Ever.
    6. Gotten a hickey? Oh sure, these days though it’s an accident rather than a badge of glory.
    7. Owned a pet that was not a dog or a cat? My sister and I grew up having hamsters. Now, my son has hamsters. I also had a turtle I found in the Missouri river named Raindrop.
    8. Been outside of your home country? Only to Mexico. Ole!
    9. Kissed your best friend? No.
    10. Eaten food that fell on the floor? I believe in the 5 second rule…though my husband says that there is no such thing.
    11. Met someone online? I have, yes. I hope to meet more in the future, maybe at Fitbloggin? I’m new to all this so maybe someday….
    12. Been on TV? Not that I can think of!
    13. Had braces? No. I always thought I should to correct my overbite, but it’s not bad enough to fret over.
    14. Gone skinny dipping? Back in the day, yes. I would now if we had our own pool, but we don’t!
    15. Been to the opera? No, but I do like seeing it on movies.
    16. Been caught making out by a policeman? Once, years ago, in Iowa. We didn’t realize it but the car had started to sink into the very wet ground..the police thought we were stuck and it turned out we were..
    17. Sung in public? In group settings.
    18. Handed out candy on Halloween? Yes! But since I have my son the last several years we are out knocking on doors rather than answering the door.
    19. Been snowed in? Yes, about once a year here in my part of Colorado we get a big storm that makes driving impossible if you don’t have a 4×4 or huge truck. It’s not a bad experience. I’m a big fan of snowmen, hot cocoa, and lazy winter days.
    20. Fallen in front of other people? Yes. Several years ago I fell in front of Super Wal-Mart. I broke my leg with that fall, and it took a huge toll on my emotions and weight.
    21. Cheated on a test? I’ll plead the 5th on that. 
    22. Regretted saying “I love you” to someone? One time when I said it and hadn’t meant it. That was stupid.
    23. Finished a meal in a restaurant and realized that you didn’t have your wallet? No, I’m pretty ultra paranoid about that type of thing.
    24. Shot a gun? Yes! I used to have a Llama 45 and liked to shoot it off in the desert. I haven’t shot a gun for at least a decade now though, unless you count the shooting range at Bass Pro Shop.
    25. Heard a song that was written for (or about) you? Some songs I have such a connection to I’d like to BELIEVE they are about me! But, no, not a real song. There is the Ah Leah song by Donnie Iris that I love.
