I've been tagged... is it contagious?

By
Real Estate Agent with WINEormous.com

My friend (or so I thought!) Donna Yates, just tagged me and said I had been meme'd... alright, here goes:

5) I lived on St. Croix in the Virgin Islands and drank champagne underwater on my birthday wearing scuba gear,

4) I went skydiving twice. I fractured two vertebrae on the second jump.

3) My second night living on St. Croix, I locked myself out of my hotel room, naked. My nickname from then on was "banana leaf".

2) I was a contestant on Super Password. Jay Leno was guest hosting the Tonight Show, he tried to strike up a conversation with us, but we couldn't respond due to strict games show rules.

1) I stood next to Robert Hayes from the movie Airplane during a Little Feat concert once.

There, I've done it... I feel much better now!

Tom:  So unfair to leave us hanging!  What's this about number 3!?!  Also, how do you drink champagne under water?  I see why you have that big smile now!  LOL

Inquiring minds want to know, eh? #5 - My buddy and I were 10 feet deep, on the bottom. We would put a thumb on the top of the bottle with one hand, remove the regulator, take the thumb off once the bottle reached the mouth, etc. See how simple? #3 - I got a job on St. Croix as a disc jockey. I sleep in my birthday suit. I got up at 2 am, stepped outside to see the stars, went to get back in my room and realized I was locked out. I reached for the first thing I could find to cover myself, which was, yes, a banana leaf. Actually there were two... one in front, one in back :-)

Tom:  I'm speechless... 

Wait, I'm recovering, ok, I'm back!  #5 - I could just picture you trying to drink out of a champagne glass (glub, glub) and well, #3 ---  I think I better just leave that where it is. LOL and ROAR!

Tom... these are wonderful secrets! I doubt I can beat this, but since you MEME'd me this morning (you rascal!), I guess I'll have to cough up some as yet unknown facts about myself. But do I dare?!

Super Password is pretty cool. Did you win anything?? And do you still wear that old outfit? The banana pants??

You better dare! Super Password... oh, the agony. The word was Fonzi. My partner said Fonz. Bert Convy said "yes", the bell went off and... the judges over0ruled him. He fought for me off-camera for 10 minutes. I didn't get the word, my opponent went on to win $10,000. I think I left with $600, a case of Chun-King, some shampoo and a blanket. It was a blast, though. Yes, I wear the "banana suit" on occasion. Thanks for asking.

Tom,

I just included your meme in my alphabetical meme list.  Check it out when you get a chance. 

Your latest experience of skydiving is giving me reason to rethink my desire to try it.  Hmmmm.

Lucky :)

Locky - Thanksso much. Skydiving was probably the grteatest thrill I've ever experienced. It was just a fluke. That was 30 years ago and all my parts are still working.
