  6. That bad curry I had in September.
  7. October wasn't good either.
  8. That time I convinced everyone I was closer to Jesus, than I really was.
  9. That time I said, 'Good thanks', when someone asked me how I was... and it was more like, 'Umm... well, actually I'm grumpy and moody.' 
  10. That time I attended church without the faith to expect that God could do immeasurably more than anything I ask or imagine.
