        There were a few of them! To name a few, 26, 27, and 38. Based on that, I’m sure you know what my answers would be. 😉 I wouldn’t want to answer those just because I wouldn’t want anyone to get hurt based off things that may or may not be known! Others I would just have a hard time trying to be completely honest and candid about! Haha!
