    I too have had very impressive ponytails, the last one maybe fifteen years ago. That last one was cut and donated to "Locks of Love." I liked to imagine somewhere there was a six year old with my hair listening to ELP and drinking Paddy Irish Whiskey.

    I went to court once in those gym/workout pants.....judge was not impressed. actually kicked me out, and re-scheduled with a threat that I would be charged with contempt if I didn't dress appropriately next time.....

    I know, right.... hes wearing a robe and tells me IM, dressed inappropriately...... oh by the way, that is NOT what your answer should be to a judge.... I think that's what brought the contempt threat on.....lol

    Hey everybody - I recalled an attempt to be cool!

    When I was 15 years old and living on the island of Okinawa, a 17 year old friend and his 14 year old brother dared me to swim through an underwater tunnel. The tunnel was nearly 100’ long and was completely submerged. It linked a small tide pool under a gigantic coral cave to the ocean. There was enough sunlight coming from the ocean side opening that you could see from one end to the other...slightly see that is.

    I was up for the dare (gosh damn dares!!!!) and I literally dove right in after a couple of deep breathes. Well halfway through I could feel vine like plants coming off the walls of the tunnel - the tunnel was at most 36” across - and I panicked with fear that I might get tangled. There was no air pocket in this tunnel. I’m actually getting anxious even writing this post. I got through the tunnel and out of the water.

    I didn’t have any form of claustrophobia before that. But I absolutely do now - I’m certain it was caused by that silly escapade.

    I hope I earned my coolness factor.
