One of the easiest questions I've ever been asked.

In 1986, I walked into a residence where a young lady was threatening suicide (had a .45 to her head). i talked and talked and talked and talked and talked to her for about four hours, then she stood up, walked toward me, and handed me the gun.

Today she's a registered nurse in South Carolina, happily married, two beautiful children, and I've gotten a Christmas card from her every year since then, and a sympathy card this past May when my wife passed away.

Can I also say that was probably one of my PROUDEST moments?

That's awesome!

I guess my most daring was when I was 20. I was on a 6 month internship in Madrid, Spain. One weekend we went on an excursion to a bull ranch.

I learned how to bullfight and while doing a two person pass the bull went right for my foot.

I was so pumped up that I had another turn, solo, with the bull. After it was all over, I found out that I had a broken left toe!

Hmmmmmm...... there IS a fine line between DARING and just plain ol' STUPID.....so with that distinction in mind........ :o :o :D :D

In '95 I had transfered within GE to go do work at the Stream Turbine and gearbox plant in Lynn, Mass (My home office was in Oakland, Calif.)...at the time We had been married almost 1 year and had become disillusioned with living in the Bay Area and California in general....so we headed back East (no ....believe it or not....this is not the daring part...just background...) Ifound I loved working at the plant...got to use my creative side to come up with innovattive solutions to the problems that would crop up....anyway in the spring of '96 an academy buddy called and said that he was hooked up with a boat owner that wanted to buy an oil field boat and convert it to go crab fishing in the Bering Sea. He was the Captain and he needed an Engineer to design, build and sail it. All of the work was going to take place in Louisiana and we would sail her through the Panama canal up to Alaska and go fishing...... All I asked was if Wifey-poo could be the cook....his answer was yes...we were moving out of our apartment 3 days later...... :o :D :D :D

Why am I telling you this, you ask? (No, I'm not completely narcissistic)
What sparked this little reminiscence is yet another "fun question" that I came across the other day:

"WHAT'S THE MOST DARING THING YOU'VE EVER DONE?"

Our anniversary got me to thinking about the reason I ended up in California in the first place. I blame it on a great amount of desperation, but for the sake of this post, let's call it daring. --- In my early 20's, unhappy with the life I'd created, I decided to quit my secure professional job, pack my belongings and enough money to last a month into my little Subaru and drive west. I had no idea where the road would lead (Colorado was on my short list) and I must admit, I was extremely nervous, but, to make a long story short, two weeks later I pulled into LA carting two South African guys I'd met in Vegas and within a few weeks, and down to my last hundred dollars, I'd met my future husband, found a well-paying job, was offered a gig to crew on an 85' yacht and had signed up to house-sit at a 5 million dollar home in Laguna Beach right on the ocean.

Not sure if that sounds daring to you, but I happen to be a rather conservative girl and quitting a guaranteed safe job to drive west on my own into the unknown took a heck of a lot of courage (the nervous eye- twitch I developed proves it!).

And so I ask you ... "What's the most daring thing you've ever done?"

Cool story! thank you for sharing! I could NEVER up and leave a secure place :o

The most daring (and foolhardy!) thing I ever did was try to outrun the county police when they passed me on the other side of the road and noticed my "reject" inspection sticker on my Jetta. To this DAY, I don't know what possessed me....I just TOOK OFF....found a hiding place and sat there for like an HOUR til I was sure I wasn't going to get caught. :roll:

First thing that comes to my mind? Taking a chance on some fella from Oklahoma that I met on this Buffett website. 8) Seems to have turned out pretty well. :D
