No one tried out my True or False? post! If you haven’t already posted your guess, please click here and try it out before reading on!

3. I have chewed 17 sticks of gum in one sitting.
FALSE! I have, however, eaten a whole thing of Bubble Tape once, which is 6 feet of gum. That hurt my jaw.

4. I have sat on a living orca/killer whale.
TRUE! When I was two years old, I went to Sea World, Orlando, Florida, and I was the lucky one picked from the audience to sit on the famous orca/killer whale, Shamu. I’ve got pictures of it too! (They no longer do this due to safety precautions.)

5. I have slept underground.
TRUE! My bedroom is in the basement in my house.

6. I have stayed in the same hotel at the same time as Harrison Ford.

7. I have fallen from a bridge and swam away, unharmed.

FALSE! I have never had stitches.

16. I have been attacked by a dog on more than one account.
TRUE! I have been chased by a Chihuahua when I was about 7 years old and it repeatedly snapped at my ankles. I was also bitten in the rear end many times by a stray Siberian Husky that had been wandering around my neighborhood for a few weeks. One of its eyes was enormously huge and stuck out like a big bulge. It had no pupil or white on that eye as that entire eye was sky blue.

20. I have had wood in my head.
TRUE! Once when I was 11 years old, I bent over to pick up a shirt that was next to my dresser and when I stood back up, the back of my head jabbed into the corner of my wooden dresser. It left a big gash in the back of my head after I pulled my head off of the edge…

    Well, only you and Rebecca tried it out. She got 3/7 and you got 2/7, so it looks like Rebecca won by 1. It wasn’t really a competition though, just something for fun…I wonder if anybody else will try it later.

    What do you mean? You don’t believe that I have been to 11 states? Well, I was born in Texas, also lived in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and North Dakota, and have visited New Mexico, Colorado, Florida, Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota. Wait, that’s 12. Well I was off by 1. (I’m not really sure if I’ve been to Missiouri or not… )
