It is particularly funny that you have never seen David's Michelangelo, and yet you lived in FLORENCE! So sad.

And you sold Girl GUIDE cookies back when you were a brownie....not exactly the same thing as Girl Scout cookies, I admit. You must have forgotten....

I think it's funny that you can't believe you've never held a lamb, but you don't seem to think it odd that you've never grown your own vegetables. Are you sure?? never even had a corner of the family plot for your own little seeds to help you learn about faith?

Also, you've certainly met me, so you can bold the "met someone famous" line.

Oh, how I love this list. I'm thinking I will have to copy it and do it on my blog too. Very fun!

So, what is the significance of riding in a gondola in Switzerland? Are the Venetian ones not good enough? Too commonplace?
