  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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?

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Hmmm…

    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.

  8. 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 :-).

  9. 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.

  10. 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!

  11. 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 !

  12. 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 :-).

  13. “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.
