A Meme, Where I Admit To Being...Me

A meme from KLo...but with my answers



Q: Kissed someone on your friends list?
Facebook...yes. Blogger...yes. As I am a gentleman I will not name them.

Q: Been arrested?
No, but I was nearly shot as a terrorist. I used to make model guns as a teenager and one night I was fixing one of them and a lady saw me, assumed I was an IRA terrorist (I lived in an Irish neighbourhood), called the police who surrounded my house. They were just about to evacuate the surrounding area when my father came back from football, asked what was going on and told them about my models. I was given a right telling off.

Q: Held a snake?

Q: Been suspended from school?
No...but I wish I had been, I hated it.

Q: Sang karaoke?
No. At least not yet.

Q: Done something you told yourself you wouldn't do?
Oh yes...and still regret them to this day.

Q: Laughed until you started crying?
No, just till my stomach ached and done it plenty of times.

Q: Caught a snowflake on your tongue?


Q: Kissed in the rain?
Nope. I hate getting wet, no matter what.

Q: Sang in the shower?
In the shower, in the bath, in the car, walking down the street, on stage, whilst cooking, whilst reading, whilst watchng tv or playing a pc game. Occasionally I'm in tune.

Q: Sat on a roof top?
No. I'm scared of heights. I get a nosebleed standing on tiptoes.

Q: Been pushed into a pool with all your clothes on?
I fell into a pool fully clothed when I was four. My only memory of it is lying on my back under the water seeing bubbles come out of my mouth. Have hated swimming ever since.

Q: Broken a bone?
Broken a wrist and torn a muscle in my leg. I thought sports were meant to be good for you.

Q: Shaved your head?
I haven't, but my ex-wife did it to me accident, or so she said.

Q: Played a prank on someone?
Not yet...but now you come to mention it sounds like fun.

Q: Shot a gun?
Yes. Air rifles and shotguns at targets and clay pigeosn, lee enfield army rifle with blanks on manouevres with the school cadet force.

Q: Donated Blood?
No. I don't trust doctors, nurses or dentists with anything sharp.
