Truth Or Dare

Truth Or Dare

Truth or dare we used to play a lot when we were kids. We’d have to make a choice whether to tell the truth about something or be dared to do something dangerous or crazy. I always chose to tell the truth but I have friends who might remember they chose climbing the roof at 10 pm instead of telling.  It was all in good fun and back then we didn’t have many deep dark secrets to reveal anyway.
