"4. If for no other reason, in elections, I vote for Fort Wayne Democrats with the neatest sign design"
wouldn't expect less from a graphic designer.

"20. I've thrown up in the shower before"
I didn't know this and I don't think I want any more details.

"54. My brother once injured me with a Starburst candy"
Should I remember this???

"31. I don't give blood because it makes me pass out"
"36. I cry easily"
"38. I'm the nicest person you'll ever meet"
"58. I have "hitch-hiker thumbs""
just a few of many that prove she is my daughter!

"17. I can wiggle my ears"
You did inherit something from your dad, along with being able to flare your nostrils!

As a final thought I would like to add #101:
Shannon can make throwing spaghetti at the wall an art!!
