How About a Gift Certificate?

No walk tonight as I'm still a little limpy so... how about a gift certificate? A $25 Fairbanks House gift certificate goes to the person who correctly guesses how many times I've sprained an ankle.

Hint #1 - I'm a jock. I've played organized (and fairly disorganized) softball, basketball, field hockey, track and luge. Okay, maybe not luge but I'm an excellent sledder. Also have been an ice skater, roller skater, hiker, snow skier. Have water skied, spelunked, played football and babysat a family of four boys for five years. Played league volleyball, wallyball and was third grade dodge ball champ. Also, competitive Simon Sez and Hokey Pokey participant because that's what it's all about.

Hint #2 - Have sprained my thumbs a combined 17 times.

Tiebreaker question: How many times have I had stitches?

I'll make the gift certificate $50 if you get both parts right. So... go ahead - take a guess. One entry per person please.

Good luck.

P.S. Locals can use the gift certificate in our gift shop.

P.S.S. Tickets for the Cookie Tour of Inns go up $5 each on Sunday. Get yours now.

Edit 11/3: We've had some good guesses, including some via e-mail (I didn't specify this time...) but no one's nailed it yet. So keep guessing - the usual one per customer - and we'll close it out at the end of the week.

OK, I'll take the oddball answer and say that from all that stuff, THIS is your first sprained ankle. Also, stitches....once. Ernest.

Okay, 13 times - it's Hallowe'en - for the ankle.

Stitches - 3 times.

Uhmm, guessing out of the blue -
6 times for the ankles
4 times for stitches

And if I'm correct or too low, may you find the wisdom to purchase functionable, yet fashionable, safety gear for everyday attire... ;).

Hope you are recovering without too much difficulty!

Can't wait until we get there for Christmas!
