Auditioning for Canadian Idol when I was in university. Embarassed I made it through the executive producer rounds, but my nerves were faltering at the celebrity judges’ round.

@goingtotherooftopoflove: I hear humidity makes a big difference, unless you just can’t breathe hot air.  Darling Husband says the heat here in the midwest at 90F is worse for him than when it was 110F when he lived in Vegas or Arizona (worse but he still does fine… and doesn’t sweat smelly sweat… there’s something wrong with the man!).

My craziest:  Being asthmatic (me being hot AND humid air both triggers) taking a random Disney trip to Florida for the weekend in the height of summer.  And not having an inhaler.  I spent 10 minutes out of every hour outside laid out on a wooden bench or concrete sitting spot just working on breathing.  But it was still awesome fun.  As my friend was the type who couldn’t do anything alone and came from money so paid most of my way (his car, paid for gas/tickets/hotel) so it didn’t cost much and he was great company. 

Luckily my friend also had asthma but  his inhalers didn’t work for me.   But he knew exactly what was going on, that I needed the time but would be ok, and if it went bad he’d have know when to call for help… plus planned for lots of indoor stuff that didn’t have long lines but was still interesting.  And he’d get cool drinks/icees, or just ice or water to drench me in to keep my body temp down.  Oh and it was Star Wars week!  I bought a wookie and a Disney/Star Wars shirt… long before Disney owned it lol (this was well over 10 years ago).

In defense of not having an inhaler the trip was just out of high school, but I’d regularly pass out in my parents cars that weren’t air conditioned when we moved to GA years earlier (they got a new car not long after).  Wasn’t diagnosed with asthma til years later.  But still I knew I couldn’t breathe in heat, so who goes to Florida in the hottest month … ya me.   I just thought it was normal to not be able to breath or even pass out in heat (grew up in northern/middle Wisconsin in the 70/80s).

Edited: for spelling

I decided at 32 I could still ride broncs. As I crawled, seriously crawled, into the bar that night I concluded it was an absolutely crazy thing to do and I was so completely wrong. That sh*t hurts as you get older. I’ll watch the youngins do that crap from the stands now.

Probably sky diving, but that didn’t feel crazy – I’ve always wanted to.

I had a very spontaneous friend in college, so we did (sometimes still do) some things on the spur of the moment, which always felt crazy – the dumbest was probably when he talked me and another friend into jumping in the snow in our underwear.

I went bungee jumping, 3 times in 2 days, on a dare, at the County Fair.

Not the best decision I’ve ever made but definitely the most exhilarating.

@Aquaria:  BAHAHAHAHAAH!! That made me laugh right out loud. That is crazy, that’s for sure.

Mine would be.. cliff jumping. Or possibly snorkelling at the Great Barrier Reef, I don’t like boats or being in the middle of water not seeing land, it was a big day. Also because the weather was horrible.

I think smoking weed on a railway bridge over a river in the dark could be described as pretty crazy, right? lol What can I say, I was 21 and stupid 🙂 It was the only time I ever smoked weed and I actually hated it 🙂

I have no desire to ever do it again, I feel good enough to say “Yup, I cliff dived”

When I went to Jamaica, I left the resort not once, but twice, with a girl I had just met that day to go to the local’s hot spots.

Ran off to the Caribbean to elope with a guy I’d met off the internet three months previously. 

(The ‘guy’ is my husband. My crazy thing worked out!)

Oh, and we met while I was living in a country I’d picked because I’d enjoyed hitch-hicking there so much the previous summer.

(Still live there. That crazy thing worked out too!)
