Bobbing for apples.
Today at lunch, there was a bobbing for apples activity and I fell into the bucket!!!!!! I did get the apple. I was soaking wet! When I went to Language Arts, my boyfriend asked me what happened and he was giving me a look like 'Oh my god Alyssa!' When I sat down, I made a huge puddle on the chair!! Then I had to go to the office and call my mom. Boy was she mad!! Everyone though I was the best though! Just wanted to see what comments you guys would make.

Congrats on the apple catch!

I'm too much of a germaphobe to do something like that, to stick my lips in a bucket of water that a whole bunch of other people have spittled in freaks me out. Not to freak you out or anything.

I used to be really good at bobbing for apples! You can't be afraid of getting wet, that's for sure!

I am a germaphobe too and don't like sticking my face in water anyway but great job at actually catching an apple.

Thanks. Being a kid, I'm not really a germaphobe.

Great job! It's no fun if you don't get totally soaked! I have a fear of drowning, so I wouldn't be doing it at all. Not to mention I'd probably leave my teeth in the bucket with the apples... (I know, eeewwww gross!!)

WooHoo! What fun would bobbing for apples be if you didn't get wet. You'll dry out!

BTW: I have to admit that I used to cheat at bobbling for apples--used my teeth to catch the stems instead of biting into the apple--Oh the shame

This made me giggle...did anyone else get that mental picture?!

Congrats on your apple bobbing prowess!
