One of the things that happens when you go on a date with someone new is you ask them what their hobbies are.
What do you do for fun?
What are your hobbies?
Tell me something interesting about you.
New Guy and I were texting and talking peripherally about hobbies when he asked, “Do you want to have a hobby contest?”
Oh, it’s on.
I have this little adventure blog called unblunder that I’ve been feeding hobbies for years. No one, and I mean no one, can beat me when it comes to hobbies.
I have too many to count.
I started: I’m a PADI certified Rescue Diver.
Him: I’m a certified water polo coach.
Me: I have my own adventure blog.
Him: Secretary past master Masonic lodge.
I’m not sure what this is, but okay.
Me: I’ve raced stock cars at the Stockton 99 raceway.
Him: I am an expert ping pong player.
Me: I’ve been skydiving.
Him: I’ve spearfished a shark.
Me: I ran with the bulls.
Him: I was kidnapped by a leper colony in Brazil.
At this point I laughed and I laughed and I laughed hard. I THOUGHT he was joking, so I followed with my own joke.
Me: I can paint with my toes.
Him: I sailed a 42 foot sloop through a hurricane and tropical storm for 1300 mils in the Atlantic.
Me: We’re you joking, because I was. I can’t paint with my toes.
And this folks is how Michelle becomes impressed with a man. When he sails a boat through a hurricane.
