Have you ever...?

I want to start a thread called "Have you ever?" I'll start by asking a specific question, and the next person answers it and asks one of her own...and so on.

To be honest, I had to look that up. Had no idea what a flame war was. I'm not entirely sure I have been part of one, in the true sense. But, I did have a cousin who didn't like my opinions (which I'm allowed to post on my own FB page), so he called me out on his own page and said some really nasty things about me, so I defended myself on each of his nasty remarks before deleting him from my page. Not sure if that counts. I will occasionally post my thoughts and opinions, but I don't intend to start a debate. It's just my opinion and if others don't agree, they don't have to. Just like I don't debate other people's differing opinions, unless I know that we're both ok with having that differing opinion from one another.

Ok, here's my question -

Have you ever mistaken someone in a public place for someone you thought you knew and yelled that friend's name, and then you find that it wasn't who you thought it was?

Yes! But thankfully not a poisonous one, lol!

Have you ever taken a ride in the car with no destination just to see where you end up?

Yes! I used to have almost a phobia about getting lost while driving when I was ages 17-19 and driving on my own in FL. When I was 20 and moved to Louisiana for college, I actually decided to drive around aimlessly to see if I could figure the place out. It worked. I never got lost again.

Have you ever performed (anything) publicly?

Yes! :) school plays, choir and band performances, public speaking competitions, and more!

Have you ever been kayaking or canoeing?

I've been canoeing, but not kayaking.

Have you ever broken a bone?

Yes. I broke my hip in Oct. '07. I was having a belly dance performance in Orlando balancing a sword on my head. I got to the part where I was supposed to sink gracefully to my knees and not lose the sword. Did it great, but I wasn't warmed up well and my quadriceps muscle pulled a piece of my hipbone off. It has ached for years because I couldn't take any leave for fear of losing my new teaching job.

Have you ever told a stranger in public something about their behavior? Like told them to stop doing something or told them they're wrong.

Yes, I told a bunch of kids to stop skateboarding in the mall. One kid was kicking his skateboard from one side of the mall to the other and he almost hit people a couple of times. I told him to keep it and I would call security and make them call his parents. heh heh...

Have you ever driven across the country?
