5. Slide down a grass hill on a block of ice-um . . . really?

13. Wash each others car-this is clearly a euphamism

42. Choose a special song-shouldn't that just happen naturally?

52. Take a car full of kids to a drive in movie-just don't forget the ones hiding in the trunk.

"11. Throw a 70’s party."

Um, apparently SOMEONE does not understand how they partied in the 70s. Amazing.

@samuel: I recommend doing #5 and #13 together. It'll blow your mind.

@daisy: If I had known that it just took a posting about sex to get you to comment, this blog would look like Xaviera's "Call me Madam." ;)
