    I yelled at your mom at the dinner table because I’m NOT crazy.

  • Callista

    I smelled an ipod in a hole because I’m awesome!

  • Jessica

    I karate chopped my brother in your bathroom because I’m cool like that.

  • Florinda

    Fun side effect of this exercise – figuring out people’s birthdays :-)!

    Teresa‘s result, via e-mail: I sang to a homeless guy riding a motorcycle because I’m NOT crazy. (I love how he can still afford a motorcycle…)

    Kathy (Bermudaonion) – You’re definitely not crazy – I wouldn’t have eaten that stuff either.

    Callista – Of course you’re awesome, but that’s just a little weird…:-)

    Jessica – You’re cool in all sorts of ways, lady :-D.

  • Ali

    I danced with a fireman in an elevator because I can’t control myself!

  • belleofthebooks

    I licked a phone in an elevator because I’m NOT crazy.

  • April

    I licked my neighbor in a hole because Big Bird said to and he’s my leader.

  • Ruth @ Bookish Ruth

    I did the Macarena with a monster on your car because I’m NOT crazy.

    (If that’s the measure of sanity, I’m a little worried.)

  • Florinda

    I am having fun reading everyone’s answers – hope you’re enjoying it too! It’s interesting how many people are doing things because they’re NOT crazy :-D. But I’m not sure how I feel about all the licking going on…

    Ali – I think Belle of the Books might need that fireman more than you do :-).

    BelleoftheBooks – If you need help getting out of that elevator, Ali will send the fireman over when they’re done dancing.

    April – Always listen to eight-foot-tall yellow feathered critters, I say.

    Ruth – I would be, too. Glad the monster didn’t step on your feet while doing the Macarena, though.

  • Mike

    Okay…I loved my sister in the line at the bank because I think I need some serious help. Yes I think I do. :)

  • Michelle

    Apparently, I did the macarena with a noodle on your car because the voices told me to! A noodle!

  • Patois

    As for me, I had lunch with a squirrel in my car because I’m sexy and I do what I want.

    As for the squirrel, he does what I tell him to do. Obviously.

  • Cathy

    I kicked a squirrel riding a motorcycle because I’m sexy and I do what I want. So there!

  • Florinda

    Mike – What a way to spend your birthday! Can’t disagree with that assessment, though :-).

    Michelle – That noodle was probably very flexible, though – that’s helpful when dancing.

    Patois – It could be useful to have a squirrel at your command.

    Cathy – Was that a very tiny motorcycle, or a very large squirrel?

  • softdrink

    I licked Chuck Norris in line at the bank because I think I need some serious help.

    1. Ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew!
    2. If I’m licking Chuck Norris than yes, I definitely need some serious help.

  • Florinda

    Jill (Softdrink) – Was that the same bank that Mike was in with his sister? I am taking my money elsewhere – that bank makes people do some VERY strange things, apparently.

  • planetbooks

    I kicked a birdbath (while) riding a motorcycle because I’m sexy and I do what I want.

  • Jeff


    I did the Macarena with my brother in my car because I’m cool like that.

    You can’t believe how bad he sucked at doing the Macarena.

  • Florinda

    Karen (PlanetBooks) – I hope you didn’t injure your foot when you kicked that birdbath!

    Jeff – I should think it would be tough for anyone to do the Macarena in a car – there’s not too much space :-).

  • Jo-Jo

    I had lunch with a gangster in line at the bank because I think I need some serious help!

    Oh my goodness….that is too cute.

  • Florinda

    Jo-Jo – I hope you distracted the gangster from robbing the bank :-).

  • jessi

    I yelled at a phone in your bathroom because the voices told me to! :)

  • Anna

    I yelled at a pickle in an elevator because I can!

    This is too funny. Thanks!

    Diary of an Eccentric

  • Florinda

    Jessi – Were the voices on the other end of the phone? I’m confused…

    Anna – I’m sure the pickle must have done something to deserve it :-).

    I LOVE the participation this is getting – thanks, y’all!

  • Dreamybee

    I licked a surfer riding a motorcycle because I’m cool like that.

    And here I was thinking that I need to get out of the house more, but, apparently I don’t !

  • Florinda

    Dreamybee – Lucky that you live in Hawaii where all those surfers are :-).

  • Kathy

    I had lunch with my dog sliding down a hill because that’s how I roll. How fun!

  • Beth F

    I kicked a stuffed animal Riding a Motorcycle because I think I need some serious help!!

  • Florinda

    Kathy – That sounds like taking your dog sledding, which definitely could be fun.

    Beth F – That stuffed animal must have been doing something very inappropriate to deserve being kicked :-).

  • Ilona

    “I loved a pickle in my car because the voices told me to.”

    Um, I think that’s rude. Really. I also think it would sting like crazy.

  • Florinda

    Ilona – I think you have a good point; both figuratively and literally, it’s not terribly appealing.

  • Stephanie

    I kicked a fireman in line at the bank because I’m sexy and I do what I want!


  • Florinda

    Stephanie – It’s nice to be able to do what you want…but you never know when you might need a fireman :-).
