Terry Teachout started this whole meme “Ten Things I’ve Done that You Probably Haven’t”. Well, here are my ten:
… met Madeline Albright in a bar.
… learned to drag race a 1968 Plymouth Barracuda.
… met Sgt. Slaughter while working at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center.
… had beers with David Mitchell.
… met several members of Radiohead.
… let a preacher and his wife try to “heal” me, which involved one of them speaking in tongues.
… jumped out of an airplane (okay, it was a tandem jump, but still).
… starred in a movie called “Sunwolf”, the story of of a guy who doesn’t heed the ‘Do no go out in the sun’ label on his prescription pills.
… wandered off when I was 4 on a Long Island beach in search of Big Bird. A cop brought me back 3 hours later to delight of my parents.
… had to help pry this strangers hands off my friends neck as he choked him (admitedly, my friend was a jerk and had made a comment to this guy, but still).
big bird rocks. did you find him?
