All you ever wanted to know (or not)

This is a list I saw about a year ago and I loved it. Although there were a few other questions in it as well I thought. But whatever they were, I have forgotten them and this is the list I found again now. 

💉Tattoos: only the one. Of a tulip. On my shoulder.
🚼Children: none. I have a goddaughter though. All grown up.
😷Surgeries: just the one. Hysterectomy. Probably saved my life.

🔫Shot a gun: yes. An airgun. During a contest. I won.
✌Quit a job: a few times. No regrets.
✈Flown on a plane: a few times. Love it.

🚙💨100+miles in a car: oh yes. Easy. Love driving.
😨Gone zip lining: yes. This too. Great and scary at the same time.
😢Cried over someone: yes. Over Wuppie. The worst ever!

😍Fell in love: twice. Willem and Stéphane.
🏃 Skipped school: never. I was a good girl!
👀👶Watched someone give birth: no. Not even an animal.

💀Watched someone die: yes. Sophie and Mathilda. In my arms.

🚲💨Rode a motorcycle: yes. Well, I was on the back. Wooden bum.
🐴Rode a horse: ehm. I sat on one. Big one as well.
🏥Stayed in a hospital: yes. After the operation.

💉Donated blood: yes. Stopped. Afraid of needles.

  7. What a great list and how appropriate for a Dutch born gal to have a tulip tattoo!
    Your suggestion to sit in sissy's lap was funny. I don't even sit in my mom's lap.

  8. Fun post. I like noth the tatt and the hoodoo. Too bad for us than Canada didn't work out, but it seems that you've done well where you are.

  9. Fun list! And I do not choose to watch a birth, thank you....

    1. There was a program on Dutch tv years ago which showed women giving birth. From all the right angles as well. I did watch that several times. But I have never seen an actual live birth...


Any weighty (and not so weighty) comments are welcome!
