The Dares: Update

30 Days of Blogging Honesty: The Dare

Category: Photogenic (New)
Post a picture of yourself with a person you would not normally approach (a rabid football fan, a neon raver, a crazed cat woman, etc) or post a picture of the place you live in from the tallest place in town (building, mountain, hill, etc).

Category: Newsworthy (New)
We also received a dare from someone who did not participate in the 30 Days Of Blogging Honesty but I don’t see the harm in including it. I did tweak it a bit.
Say hello to a perfect stranger and gauge their reaction and see if they will allow you to interview them for your blog. Ask a minimum of 4 questions. Post the interview.

Category: Youngins
Write a letter to your 16-year-old self and post it. Detail your journey.

Category: Coulda, Shoulda, Wouldas
Write a letter to someone you owe an apology to but never gave one. It does not have to be a long letter. Just write the letter (not email),  send it and then post it for us to see.

Category: Good Eats
Eat completely healthy for an entire day even if it means eating foods you do not care for. Document all failures or start over another day if you mess up.

Category: ARKs
For a 24 hour period, for every act of kindness given to you, pay it forward to a stranger one better.  For example – if a friend buys you a coffee, buy two strangers a cup of coffee. Detail your journey.

Category: Truthiness
For a 24 hour period you must tell the truth in every situation, every question – all day long. Perhaps the most difficult will be not lying to yourself. Detail your journey.

Category: Blushing
Spend an hour by yourself totally naked even if there are other people in the house but only if you won’t get caught. If you get interrupted you must start over and reset the clock to zero minutes. Detail your journey.

I look forward to reading all the dares! I know you are as well. Don’t forget, your dares are due to be posted no later than five (5) days after you finish your last honesty day.

30 Days Of Blogging Honesty: Day 28


If I could do one thing that is socially unacceptable and know I would not be judged, I would…

There is a question very similar to this question that was submitted for either the July or December meme. Similar but different enough to be acceptable as a question. I have an answer for both and I am torn as to which one to choose to do here and now. One is light-hearted and the other is of a more serious, mature nature.

Decisions, decisions!

Allllllrighty then. Let’s go with the more light-hearted one. I would pillage and plunder. After looking up the definition of pillaging and plundering I have to use a different phraseology. Simply put, I would steal. Steal specifically from banks and other financial institutions. After all, having decided earlier in the month to not pick infinite money, I need some form of income to live the lifestyle I want to become accustomed to!

No guns for me though. I don’t want to risk anyone’s life or having a firearm in my hands, give the police or FBI a reason to fire on me! I would sit right where I am now and siphon one dollar from every bank account in the world. I would do this as often as I need to keep my own private Cayman Island account with a minimum of ten million dollars at any given time.

Why sir, what would you do with all that money? I would be very naughty with all that money. I would buy a nice mansion home and a nice car. I would travel the world over visiting new places and meeting all my blogging friends and taking you all with me. I would ‘buy’ several politicians. More than several! I would use them to do my evil bidding, to further my agenda (evil laugh goes right here). I would remove harmful ingredients from processed foods, make solar and wind power usage a priority, I would make a 10% tax for everyone except businesses the norm. I would do what in my opinion would be good deeds but I guess buying my own Congressmen and women would be wrong. I can’t say I wouldn’t do it though. Honesty month, remember!

I would use the money and my infinite wisdom to enjoy life to the fullest. Also, let’s add not only not be judged but also never be caught.
