The ice skating one made me laugh - and I do exactly the same hourglassy thing!

It's not pain as your first memory -

Never been ice skating, no time to do the whole meme... admiring you and everyone else with proper early memories: my first is when I was nearly 5!~!

No one has ever punched me in the face but I suspect several people wished they could!!

Thanks for playing RSM - come back next week for the 007 theme.

I loved 26 (marriage ending a relationship) and 59 (call 911) made me laugh out loud.

Sarah Louise said...

You make me laugh. And that, my friend, is good. On 56, what do you want to be when you grow up, me too! (A very very old lady.)
