Ten things I've done that you haven't:

1. Adopted two black kids to live with me and my white daughter in a Manhattan penthouse apartment.

2. Worked as a house mother for bratty, private schoolgirls and helped them to navigate the murky waters of adolescence with exquisite baking and pithy admonishment.

3. Worked as a receptionist for a private investigation company owned and operated by a bankrupt magazine model.  When answering the phone, I would speak only in rhyme.

4. In between performing triage surgeries in the jungles of Korea, I got sloshed on martinis made from the gin of a home-made still .  I made people call me by a nickname that is an acronym synonymous with oral sex.

5. I was the only kid in my middle school with a tattoo of a mermaid on his arm.  Dance senorita!

6. Studied eastern religions and self-educated myself on the intricacies of philosophy, anthropolgy, sociology and pyschology while DJ'ing for a local rock station in Alaska.  I built a catapult and flung a neighbor's piano with it.

7. Proved that I could make it after all, as a television news reporter in Minneapolis.

8. Owned a daggit.

9. Lived on a boat with a pet alligator and owned a European sports car, all on the salary I received working as a police officer.

10. Performed magic tricks and practical jokes for hookers and drunkards from the judge's bench of a New York City court room.

3 and 5 have stumped me.

3 is Moonlighting. I know I've seen 5, I can picture the mermaid on the arm, but I can't place it.

I got everything but 3, 5, 8 and 9. So I guess that's not even close to everything. Look! Bees! (runs)

You never worked in a brewery and put your glove on one of the bottles on the assembly line?

And I doubt that you were the only kid with a dancing lady on his arm. Endless Mike probably tormented you both during those formative years.

Hahah, I thought of doing Laverne and Shirley.. I considered "Had a boyfriend named Carmine and a roomate with an affinity for milk and Pepsi.. TOGETHER!"

As I recall, wasn't the younger Pete's nemesis Pitstain?

Oh yeah? Well I fought crime with a talking car named K.I.T.T. so THERE

hahaha... yeah, well, i thought that was too obvious! ;-)

Yeah, well believe it or not, I'm walking on air.

I never thought I could feel so free...

Oh man, I didn't even think of Greatest American Hero! although, honestly, I probably wouldn't have used it because I can't remember enough details about the show to have written something clever about it ;-)

you are correct in thinking that :)

Oh man, that's awful... I hope the ACLU comes to his rescue... that's insane

Re: Check out what's goin' on in your hometown...

Oh that's just crap.

Missed 5, which kind of depressed me. I hate to think of myself as the kind of person who knows that much about tv.

I've done all that, plus thrown turkeys out of an airborne helicopter as part of my radio station's Thanksgiving promotion because, as God is my witness, I thought they could fly.

Also, I was taken aboard an alien spaceship and studied while the aliens sent a replica of me down to take my place in society. When I got back and found out my wife was pregnant, I wondered for a while if it was my replica that did it.
