An entirely unprovoked incident of a drunk guy pouring a pitcher of beer on my chest back in college. And I wasn't in a wet t-shirt contest.

4. What's the worst thing you've ever done to another person?
Another college experience. I squeezed and twisted the crotch of some drunk guy after he had grabbed me between the legs as I walked by.  I never had any remorse about doing that little quid pro quo.

Some guy who looked like this.

Crockhead said...

Now I have to wonder what your last name really is. Pumpkin-Eater? Wad? Short?

Stacy said...

I was wondering about the name, too.

I'd say that guy in college had that and more coming. Hope he learned his lesson. And I'd bet that 1945 was one hell of a kiss!

Katie said...

Great answers - Totally agree with you on 22.

Hootin' Anni said...

With all the rains we had this past week with the tropical storms, I wish I'd thought of that song.

Ya, we have litter boxes also. LOL

Here's my Stealing Hope you can stop by to visit with me if time allows!!

white rabbit said...

I read and re-read Q9. I still don't understand it. Must be an American thing...

Your answer to Q15 reminded me of being in Crete years ago BMF and I were about to walk the Samaria Gorge. Wherever we stopped of had a large collection of small plates all of which had what looked like a fried egg on them. I thought this strange. In fact it wasn;'t fried eggs at all but yoghurt with a big dollop of hi=ney in the middle. The bright light and the rich colour of the honey combined to create the fried egg effect.

Oh dear, I'm, rambling here...

Catch Her in the Wry said...

crock: My real last name is Long.

ace: I always loved that kiss picture from 1945. Can you imagine being so happy about a world event that kissing a stranger seemed the right thing to do?

katie: It's a crying shame how adult actions affect children.

anni: At least my clean litter box smells better than dog poop.

white: I think #9 was an attempt at humor involving which of your childreb is the most aggravating (thus the one you'd give up). Fortunately I never gave a thought to not wanting either of my children. They were and are wonderful. If I were required to give up my children, I'd leave the country.

I got my craving for yogurt with honey after my trip to Greece and Crete. I never like it before then. On a rooftop restaurant in Athens, there was a huge bowl of what was the best yogurt in the world (in my opinion) and a large honey dipper to drizzle the golden stickiness over the yogurt. I couldn't get enough of it while I was there.

I am Harriet said...

Do it now works for me. And, I love that t-shirt :)

Have a great rest of your weekend.
Monday Mayhem is back!

Debster said...

Love lemon squares!
And Hick Chick is a great rhyme.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

So that was YOU in Times Square. It's all clear to me now... :)

Catch Her in the Wry said...

Harriet: Yeah, I may order that t-shirt for myself.

Debster: Lemon squares are the best! Like little pies in a butter crust. They are very popular here in hicksville.

Bud: That was me in one of my previous lives. I think you were also there staggering in a drunken stupor while pouring beer on women's chests.
