I'm not a risk-taker, but if I were ...

The first time we were introduced to TableTopics by our friends Melanie and Shelly, we were asked a really interesting question. It was, "What would you do if there were absolutely no risk involved?"

WOW. I had to think about it for a while. It's hard for me to put all fear of consequences aside, since the consequences are the first thing I think about when making any decision. Ultimately I answered, "Experience a tornado." Two years later, that question still pops into my mind sometimes, and I've come up with a few other answers. I think my running list today looks like this:
  • Experience a tornado
  • Compete in a NASCAR race
  • Play with a lion
  • Go skydiving
  • Go hang-gliding
  • Swim with sharks
I'm pretty sure Shelly's answer was "Rob a bank," which I thought was hilarious. What would you do if you knew there was no risk of danger, injury or getting caught?

Skydive, compete in the Iron Chef challenge, walk into a swamp full of alligators, and I like the answer ''Rob a bank'' too.. hehe :)

I would do some things that some folks have no fear of, but I do: have my right knee replacement, helicopter ride, travel to Switzerland and Russia.

I think there is very, very little that I WOULDN'T do if there was no risk involved.

Experience a tornado, too....but Robbing a bank would have to be number one! HAHA!

I like Shelly's answer best. There are so many things I'd do but not many of them have not already made it to my bucket list. I figure, what the heck.

Shelby, I have terrible stage fright, so I should have added something about singing in front of a large crowd. Maybe singing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl or something!

Beckie, we rode in a helicopter that didn't have doors when we went to Hawaii. Scary but absolutely thrilling! We'd do it again.

SET, I believe that about you.

Robin, you people with the robbing of the bank ... too funny!

Paige, you and my sister are two-of-a-kind.

Erin, HA!
