This week’s question: What was the stupidest dare you ever accepted?

Book reviewer

Larry Cox

When I was about 5 or 6, an older cousin dared me to jump out of the hay barn loft with an umbrella. He claimed it would act like a parachute (it didn’t) and that it would be fun, fun, fun (it wasn’t).

Hmmmmmmmmmm . . . At the risk of appearing to lead a boring life, I really haven’t accepted any dares at all. Mainly that’s because nobody is daring, and especially double-daring, or even double-dog-daring me to do anything. However, there have been lots of times when I’ve bitten off more than I could chew.

My friends dared me to enter a dance contest in junior high. I partnered with my cousin and we made up a cute little routine to “Shame” by Evelyn “Champagne” King. I still remember all the steps, too. We were decked out in our best disco duds and showed off our moves at the Ramada Inn downtown. The judges weren’t impressed and sent us packin’ in the first round. We didn’t care. We had fun.

Just Because: stupid dares

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
