    I play basketball. It can get really competitive on school teams. I also ALWAYS seem to get paired up with defending the really tall, rough, and competive people on the other team. Then there’s the jamming of fingers. That hurts REALLY bad. I even burst into tears when that happens.

  6. Awesome_236

    I understand numbers 10,9,8,7,6,5,2, and 1, because they’ve happened to me sooo many times!!!

    On today’s blog post (the 1 about having something super large), I totally agree with people who elected for extra large feet for running. I would soooooooooooooooooooooooooo not want an extra large nose because some smells are too unpleasant and I don’t wanna smell em.
