Sounds like you had a wild past! Going skinny dipping, to the liquor store at 17 and hitch hiking! :) I guess no one can fool you!
good for you, for reading the bible so many times. I can´t even manage cover to cover once! To undisciplined! Sad, I know.
And you don´t carry a purse?! Where do you put your wallet, or glasses? :))
Very interesting!
