Question 10

What is the bravest/craziest/wildest thing you have ever done?

Oh, you can bet it was something stupid. It's also my deepest regret.

But a happiest wildest? Well, that's private. *blush* ;)

bravest: sky diving from 10,000 feet.

craziest: jumping off a 50-foot high train tressel into water that was far too shallow to be safe ... at night.

wildest: involves a dj .. a dj booth ... a wild dance club ... and nekkidness. Runner up involves a hotel room, lots of wine and two men. All events occurred when I was young, dumb and full of ... erm ... stupidity.

The risks I take these days are of the emotional variety ... and for the record, emotional risks are FAR scarier than any of the physical risks I've taken in my life.

The bravest/craziest/wildest thing I've ever done was the first time I performed at an open mic night. I decided to do it as 8:30 in the morning and was on stage at 8:00 that night. I had recently gotten divorced and figured, "Heck, if I can survive that, I can survive anything."

After my name was announced, I picked up a glass of water to take a drink before going on stage. My hands were shaking so much from nerves that the water was sloshing out of the glass and all over me. So basically, that night, I combined open mic night with a wet t-shirt contest.

And that's about as brave/crazy/wild as my life gets.

Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I'll join slyeyes with open mic night for bravery. Less than a year after joining the band, we auditioned at an open mic night thingy, which was pretty nerve-racking. The first time I sang in front of anyone was a big one too.

My wildest/craziest thing happened at Club Med, but that's all I'm telling. ;)

Bravest - For me anything dealing with hieghts is an act of bravery. On the more serious side I would say facing some of the health challenges of myself and my family has required a lot of bravery

craziest - I painted the letter U in green and orange on my head for a UMiami football game. That wasn't the crazy part. I used zinc oxide and proceeded to get sun burn on my face except where the U was so I had a giant white U on my forehead for weeks. Ok maybe that was just stupid.

Wildest - Well I had some fun with wedding cake samples and weasel this weekend.

itpubly- I'm not saying it publicly

Bravest - while I've been skydiving, I actually consider quitting my retail management job in 1996 the bravest thing I ever did. I did it to spend a week in Bogota (that's a whole 'nother story - actually is probably the craziest) with my friends - but I knew I had to break out of my rut. I had almost no money in the bank and no job to come back to - but I quit anyway. While I was gone, a huge company found my resume and called me for an interview - I was hired the Thursday I came back to the country!

Wildest - lots of candidates here, but taking Punky's cue - involves a car at 55mph on windy back roads and me in the driver's seat with a SEVERLY obscured view of the road.....

Yes, I'm talking the whole magilla here....

backups to that are pale in comparison.

woohoo Higgy! My craziest wildest (stupidest) is almost exactly like yours. Except I was the view obstructer. :D

bravest: having the discussion with my Mom.

craziest: a 30 hour, 1300 mile road trip from Chapel Hill, NC to San Antonio, TX to see the Alamo and eat ribs.

wildest: a night spent at LAX with a Kiwi travelling from London to Aukland for the Christmas holiday. I was travelling from California to North Carolina. Both our flights were delayed overnight. The wildness didn't occur just at the hotel room United Airlines gave me for the night. Note, this was not included in the discussion with my Mom.

I remembered it today.

Bravest: Taking over my Humanities teacher's class one day. I sat on the desk at the front of the classroom and read what I'd prepared on a set of index cards. I talked about the previous couple of days. It was an amazing cry for help; I can't believe I was brave enough to do that. But, then, what I was talking about was, at the time, actually the worst thing that had ever happened to me (now the second-worst).
