    I can't even imagine such a scenario.

      Okay, is this about the mayonnaise, the Vegemite, the avocados/guacamole, which one?  Grrrrrrrrrr.

    Yup - I went skydiving in my 50s.

      Wow, that’s great. How many times did you do it?

    I figured I had already lived at least half my life, I have no kids or husband to worry about or take care of - what the heck.  I preceded that with a hot air balloon trip in New Mexico, and rounded out my death-defying experiences with white water rafting in Pennsylvania.  I'm done now.  I've tempted fate sufficiently. :)

    That'sounds like pretty good adventures.

    i took scuba diving course when I was in the Navy; that was regarded as a 'calculated risk'.The scariest part was jumping into the icy cold North Atlantic waters from the sbip''s deck. This post was edited by Kittigate at September 2, 2020 8:39 AM MDT

    I would have liked to try that, but I can't have my nose and mouth covered at the same time without feeling as though I'm suffocating.  I was in St. Croix on vacation and wanted to snorkel over the coral reefs, but when I put on the mask and the snorkel, I nearly fainted, so I joined the two old ladies in the glass-bottomed boat!
