That was fun... I was stung by a bee trying to save it in a swimming pool. Learned my lesson.

Sis. Tammy said...

I enjoyed reading your answers. #95 was hilarious. I laughed myself silly over that one!!!! Your a hoot. Talk about a culture difference. As for the skinny dippin' thing? That means you go swimming without your clothes!!!!!

Wayfaring Wanderer said...

p.s. Thanks to Y.S. for accolades!

Liss said...

I love reading these. I find peoples answers so interesting. I had chicken pox only 18 months ago. They were really bad, I had not a spare piece of skin for another dot on my body. covered from head to toe. I looks so horrible and felt worse.
