    Oh, that’s a good meme. Maybe I’ll give it a go sometime soon, too.

    So, I have to ask: What bone did you break and how? What famous person did you meet? Do you still have that childhood toy?

    I broke my right clavicle playing running bases with my brothers and dad. (Kevin tripped me. He was probably getting even for the time I pushed him down the basement stairs on his tricycle.) I broke my left tibia playing softball. (I slid in the wet grass beyond home plate after making a mad dash in from third base.)

    I met the cast of Star Trek (TOS) back in ’76, as well as Harlan Ellison. Over the course of many years going to science fiction conventions, I’ve met a lot of famous (science fiction) authors.

    Yes, I still have my stuffed Winnie the Pooh. :)

    I started this. But I don’t ride elephants. I throw up in taxis and have interesting cell mates. Please change the activities. Thank you.

    Max, on your blog you can make up all the activities you like. I don’t throw up in taxis (but NYC cabbies are trying to get me to change my mind about that one) and all my cell mates have been completely uninteresting. On the other hand, after reading Water for Elephants, I’m not sure I want to ride an elephant anymore either.
