Have you ever . . . Meme of 99.

This came from here.  Sideon posted it, and I am a fan of these, so I am reciprocating.  Here are the rules:

Take the list (copy and paste to notepad – it will remove all bold and italic formatting).  Copy list back to Word or whatever where you then bold the items you’ve done.  Don’t bold items you haven’t done.  My background makes bolding difficult to see, so I have bolded and underlined, my haves.

  1. Call me purist, but I don’t think hot tubbing is skinny-dipping – there’s no swimming! Besides, I’m night-blind and you could have worn a burqa and I wouldn’t known otherwise. You were nekkid?…

    66. Visited a Nazi Concentration Camp (No, but I have seen Bob Bennett.) – BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    91. Met someone famous (I know Sideon.) – Infamy is over-rated.

  2. Sideon, You are purist.

  3. Okay, really I have to side with Sid on hot tubbing ala natural. Does not equate skinny dipping.

  4. I disagree. . . Merrian-Webster states, “Skinny-dip: to swim in the nude; Date: 1964” Also – “Swim: to play in the water”

    In a hot tub, one is in water, I played, nude. . . Therefore – I was skinny dipping.

  5. You was nekkid.

    But skinny-dipping is in swimming pools or bodies of water, other than hot tubs.

    Purist = me.
