Let's make it 2-Hundy

The wifers challenged me to match her hundred with my own hundred. I'll try to list a few things that even my wife doesn't know.

  1. My high school football team (no, I wasn't on it, see fact #2) were the state champs all 3 years I was in high school. I would run on the field after every game with my shirt off.
  2. I was assistant ball boy for my high school football team.
  3. Although my wife was voted class clown, I was the runner up (to the head ball boy).
  4. My sister played college volleyball and I ended up being the ball boy for her team, a job normally reserved for 10-year-0lds.
  5. I was a volleyball ball boy for 3 years for that team.
  6. When the men's coaches saw our skills, they asked us to be their ball boys as well.
  7. I was a volleyball ball boy for 3 years for the men's team as well (and helped lead them to a national championship).
  8. I've been to China, Hong Kong, Alaska (5 times), Hawaii, Costa Rica, Mexico, Canada, Portugal, Cape Verde, and Germany.
  9. I served a mission in Portugal and spent 7 months in Cape Verde.
  10. I closed an island in Cape Verde as a missionary, essentially taking away the Church from the few faithful members left. It was one of the hardest things I've ever done.
  11. My greatest fear is of one day becoming severely dyslexic. Seriously.
  12. I took violin lessons from four years old to 18 years old. I hated violin until about 2 years after I stopped playing.
  13. My wife thinks she's funnier than me, but she's not. I'm funnier.
  14. Everyone tells me my daughter looks exactly like me.
  15. My favorite thing in the world is to make my wife and daughter laugh.
  16. My wife is almost 4 years older than me. Good advice to any single man: date older. You'll never go back.
  17. In fact, my first date was with an older woman. I was 15 years old (I know, I'm a sinner--but it was like 2 weeks before my birthday) and my date was a 17-year-old varsity cheerleader. My sister made me do it (she was her friend). I drove.
  18. I drove a LOT before I got my license.
  19. I make fun of people too much.
  20. I was suspended in 5th grade for lighting firecrackers on the playground.
  21. My lifetime pull-up count hovers around 17. (Yes, that's how many pull-ups I've done in my lifetime, not in a row)
  22. My wife is beautiful. I'm so glad she married me.
  23. The only bone I've broken is my clavicle. I've only had stitches once after a slip-n-slide accident.
  24. My best friend (besides my wife of course) is a lawyer.
  25. Being a dental student, I stare at everyone's teeth.

  31. I'm not very good at keeping in touch with people.
  32. One day I want to run a marathon and swim across the Hudson river (not necessarily consecutively).

  35. I like to bake on Sundays.

  42. I won the spelling bee in 6th grade by spelling "salmonella."

  67. I was engaged once before I was married. So was my dad.
  68. After my mission, I dressed up as a missionary and snuck back into the MTC for a Tuesday night devotional with Neal A. Maxwell. He walked out into the crowd and I was sure he would see right through me.

  76. My dad and I used to build model rockets. We sent them higher and higher until we lost one.

  10. So Charles says this whole list is probably a lie. I backed you up and said it wasn't. UNTIL he recalled you eating SUBWAY at the ASDA Vendor Day in Bard Basement. I dunno what to believe anymore!
