When I was 18, I dated my manager at work who was 26. We dated for a month or two, and I dumped him for his roommate/best friend. Needless to say, things were very awkward at work and tense after that event. Very messy situation. The only thing I can say in my defense is that I learned my lesson and never dated another co-worker or had anything to do with a "friend."

my dad taught me how to fly fish when i was little, when we went camping i'd always go with him and i caught my first fish when i was 7 - i felt so bad, though, that i put it back in the river and never did it again.

i once told my brother's gf that he cheated on her. btw, he really did, i didn't make it up. they broke up over it. we didn't talk to each other for a year over that.

i like to climb trees.

Okay here is another obscure trivial fact from my past while playing football in high school.

I once blew my girlfriend, a cheerleader, a kiss as I passed her on the sideline while scoring a long 95 yard touchdown.

I received the kick-off on the 5 yard line and found an opening between my team's blockers on the left side of the field and sprinted as fast as I could go down the left side just a couple of yards in bounds, as I streaked past our cheerleaders I could see my girlfriend on my left so I turned my head and gestured a blowing kiss at her as I ran by her.

All the girls in school loved me for that. I was like the most popular guy that next week. However, my head coach wasn't too fond of me doing that. He thought I had been a show off (and I was often guilty of that.) So despite the fact that I had scored 2 touchdowns, caught 6 passes and was second on the team in tackles that game, after the next Monday's practice I had to stay late and run wind sprints, lots and lots of wind sprints, until I vomited.

If I had the chance to relive that moment I wouldn't change anything. It was worth every wind sprint! haha

2- I have over 50 trophies from bowling and basketball, more from basketball.
3- when I was little, I would go around my house singing stuff, making up lyrics mostly about how much I love Jesus, trees, the stars and stuff like that and just random stuff... Actually I kinda still do that lol except the lyrics I write now make lots more sense

At one time or another, I have played in marching bands delivering honors to President Eisenhower, Vice President Nixon, President-elect Kennedy, President Johnson, Queen Elizabeth II of England, French President Charles DeGaulle, The King of Sweden (I forget his name), and the Queen of Norway (whose name escapes me also). I was one of the many sailors lining the parade route for President Kennedy's funeral. I have also played (many times) for Blaze Starr's Exotic Dance routines.

I had my tongue pierced when I was twelve... by my dog! Man's best friend my a**. Serves me right for teasing him.

I'm very shy in a group of more than 4, even if they're all friends

Spiders and snakes freak me out, but I don't mind sleeping under the stars while backpacking

I've got great rhythm (I play bass guitar) and I've been an athlete my entire life, but sadly, I'm a complete dork on a dance floor

When i was in junior school (i was about 8/9) to get out of a detention class i climbedinto the ceiling, needless to say i fell right through and broke my ankle

I have a scar on the palm of my hand that goes half way up my thumb, sliced it open on the front sight of a gun.

I have a bb lodged in my knuckle, a realy long story to this, so as short as possible, someone brought in a loded co2 bb if for repair, i picked it up and it went off, needlesss to say the gun was not repaired and the person left never to return.

I have been bent twice in 26 years of diving, something that is realy not nice, and extremly painfull, not recomended, i make sure i do extra deco now just to be sure.

I have a scar on my bicep, and when people ask about it i tell them it is knife actually i did it working on a car, the fan kicked in and took a chunk out of me

This list could go on and on, so i'll stop here.

I currently have braces, this is my second time as I was a naughty girl for losing my retainer at 19. I really hate getting food stuck.

I was almost arrested at 18 for skinny-dipping in the pool of an apartment building near my house. I had been walking home from a friend's house when a girl (also 18) and her mom (mid 30's) drove by. They stopped and asked me if I wanted to go skinny-dipping with them. Of course I said yes. I was just about to get lucky with the mom, when the apartment manager came out with a shotgun in his hands and told us that the cops would be there in a few minutes. And yes - it would have been worth it. Mom was a fucking hottie...

For a period of time, I could orgasm if I was on my knees. It was weird.

Once in church I swore under my breath and couldn't stop swearing. It was like I had tourettes.
