Fortune Favors the Friday Five.

1. What's the most daring thing you've ever done? The most daring thing I've ever done? Geez, I dunno. It's not like I've done all that many daring things in my life... Well, let's see, back when I was hiking regularly, I do remember a few rock-scrambles that had my heart racing a bit. And I ate a hamburger in Ireland at the height of the UK mad cow scare; I guess that's pretty daring! The most illegal thing I've ever done involved driving a minivan I wasn't technically legally allowed to drive for hundreds of miles... That felt pretty daring, actually, but I don't think I'm going to talk about it here. It's a long story. Plus, my family reads this blog, and I'd hate to disillusion them about my status as an upright, law-abiding citizen. Heh.

2. What one thing would you like to try that your mother/friend/significant other would never approve of? I remember idly discussing with my mother the idea that it might be fun to try skydiving sometime and her being utterly appalled.

3. On a scale of 1-10, what's your risk factor? (1=never take risks, 10=it's a lifestyle) I'd say a 2. Seriously, idle thoughts of skydiving notwithstanding, I'm generally a really risk-aversive person.

4. What's the best thing that's ever happened to you as a result of being bold/risky? Well, the fact that I don't make a habit of being bold/risky means that very little, good or bad, has happened to be because of it. Hmm. Well, I did get to the Grand Canyon in the illegal minivan. That was extremely cool.

5. ... and what's the worst? You know, I honestly can't think of anything. Unless it turns out I am infected with mad cow disease and just don't know it yet...
