Scariest thing that ever happened to you: um, I’ve done some dumb stuff from diving to 100 ft as a beginner to sprinting off a cliff, tandem hang gliding at 600m with a guy I just paid cash in Rio, and snowboarding down black diamonds at Mt. Tremblant after just learning to board.
How about the grossest thing with a real estate spin? Hot summer day, walked into a potential investment property, my RE broker at the time described it as “I can’t sell this” (it was his listing) open the front door and the stench hit me like a punch to the face. And yes of course we bought it.
