False. I have considered baking one from scratch on several occasions but in the end have always resorted to the Duncan Hines option.

TNP has never passed their hand slowly over a candle flame to show what a badass they are.

False, I am not a badass, no one ever thought I was, and I've never tried to prove it.


The Next Player knows how to square dance, and does it well.

False. I have only square-danced a few times (not well), and cannot now remember any of the rules.

TNP has big plans for the weekend.

Generally true. Quality time with the wife on Saturday. Trip to Vegas Sunday.

The next poster has been deposed for a court case

No. I have testified, but never been deposed.

TNP has read a deposition transcript in the past month.

True. I wear comfy stuff in cold weather. I will go back to sleeping nekkid when it gets hot.

TNP has a piercing that is hidden by clothing. Most of the time.

False. No holes I wasn't born with.

TNP has been driven nuts by their child's obsession with a kids' tv character (Barney, Elmo, or the like).

No, even though our boys had various characters they liked, it never became an obsession, and never drove me nuts.

TNP has seen a female urinal in a public place (a "Did you know...." Wiki article today: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Female_urinal)

False. It may be a real product. It may work. It's a horrible name.

The Next Poster remembers the days when we had to lick postage stamps.

True. And as a kid I dried out my tongue helping the volunteer fire department send out mailers. Hazing, I suppose, but only after quite a few stamps had been licked did someone mention using a sponge to wet the stamp and envelope.

TNP gets bladder shy in public restrooms when someone else enters a neighboring stall.

True. Madame P. has a good friend with a farm, and we've ridden her horses on numerous occasions. I'm still no good at it, though.


The Next Poster does not enjoy progressive jazz.

TNP has never been hospitalized.

True. A passport has never been an issue travelling to Canada and all the other world travel I've been involved with occurred on deployment while in the military.

TNP has never bowdlerized a statement in the presence of children, gosh darnit!

False, I guess. I have no opinion on piŮa coladas and don't mind taking walks in the rain, if I can be assured of a big towel and dry clothes immediately afterwards.

TNP is not into yoga and has half a brain.

True. The other half of my brain, however, is not particularly fond of pina coladas

TNP has dropped a small object from a very great height (e.g. a penny off a suspension bridge or a paper airplane off the Eiffel Tower or the Grand Canyon) just to see what would happen

True. Not live, but for an in-the-street segment that later aired (I was marching in a pro-choice protest parade when the reporter and her cameraman came up to me).

TNP will be marching on Saturday.

True! My daughter and I were at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago about three weeks ago.


The next poster once growled "The cross belongs in a museum!" at the villain and then got punched for their efforts.

False. Can't think of one but it is likely I hoped that a dipshit protagonist would "get written out of the story."

The next poster wonders what the big deal is of wearing parameciums on shirts.

False. Never heard of anyone with a paramecium on his shirt. I prefer to keep mine in water, where they'll live longer.

The next poster has eaten alligator.

Oh, sure, true. Everyone knows the Professor's a loose cannon who works better without the restrictions that come with the badge. Okay, metaphorically true: when appraising some fine art at a house, my boss told me not to do the Japanese woodblock prints in the bedroom, but I did anyway, and they turned out to be by Utamaro and worth in the tens of thousands of dollars each, so, that.

The next poster has an invitation to the upcoming royal wedding in the UK.

Well, true, but it wasn't so much a float as a chariot for High School Latin Club. I was in a toga. But the chariot was pulled by a car.


The Next Poster prefers Beethoven to Mozart.
