Funny Story

When my sister and I were younger, around 6 & 7, we used to play a game in the car where we would try to hide a piece of gum we had somewhere in our mouth (i.e. under the tongue, behind your teeth, roof of the mouth).  Well I decided to try and fool her and took it out of my mouth and stuck it to the headrest behind me.  My mom hit a bump and my head bounced back to the back of the seat and the gum stuck in my luscious half mullet, I was rocking.  Needless to say my mom was not happy when we got home and she had to give me a mini haircut to get the gum out.  I had a patch of hair taken out for 2 days until we could get me a proper hair cut.

I once walked in front of a crowd of at least 6,000 people when I wasn't supposed to... I played it off cool only to later find that my fly was down... It wasn't my best moment.

On my first date ever I was extremely nervous that I would run out of things to say. I wrote a list of topics of conversation on a piece of paper and read it when I went to the restroom. 

There was not a 2nd date....

I strongly DISLIKE bananas. When I was 14, I was offered a smoothie by my then boyfriends mother-only to puke it up seconds later all over her dinner table. Let's just say I wasn't invited back there for a while! #embarrassing

Funny Story

When I was 6 years old I went to a birthday party wearing a puffy dress with a circle skirt.  Mind you I was no lady, and when the Piñata broke I ran and covered all the candy with my dress.  

Can you tell I have 5 brothers?!
