I recently stumbled upon this article that claims to feature one hundred interesting questions to ask people.
So I figured it would be interesting to try to answer all of them!
1) What was the last picture you took with your phone?
2) Do you know any big gossips?
3) Have you been pulled over by a cop?
I don’t drive.
4) Do you know your Heritage?
Most are from Norway, like me, but I think I have a great-grandfather or something that was a sailor from Southern Europe, so that part of my family is just a shade darker than most Norwegians.
5) What have you always wanted? Did you ever get it?
I always wanted a girlfriend, and now I’ve got one.
6) What kind of sickness have you lied about so you wouldn’t go to work?
7) What was the last lie you told?
Can’t remember, I don’t lie that often.
8) Have you ever danced in the rain?
9) What is your blood type?
Shit, I’m not sure!
10) Have you ever been in a car accident?
Twice, getting a ride from the same friend both times.
One time we scraped the side of another car coming in the opposite direction to us, at high speed in the dark.
The other time we just slid off the icy road, getting stuck in a ditch.

Not a prank per se, but I once called back to a pizza place after they had delivered us the pizza, to say thanks for dinner.
