Hi, 195 and 56 are the same. Maybe the questionaire just wants to make really sure you've never been on a cruise. Or wants to see if someone remembers to lie twice. I should get a prize for spotting the repeat in 200 lines. (I'm really jealous of the prize Lindsay got :0))

Tiercy said...

This is a fun way to get to know someone. Although, you do need to change 175 to red because I am a triplet. thanks for taking the time to do this.

Not quite the Bradys said...

I knew you are a triplet but I didn't think that counts since it says met a SET of triplets. I've never met Paige or your brother. : )

Cassadie said...

Wow- you have done a lot of things that I haven't! A hot air balloon? A helicopter? Why didn't we capitalize more on your sense of adventure in the 8th grade?
