Truth or Dare. Dare#1. I eat all the altoids.

Last week, I asked you, my dear readers, to give some requests for dares that I said I would complete on this blog. While I have to admit, the one I want to complete the most (dressing up as Cookie Monster and scaring girl scouts) is still at the top of the list, but I have not yet been able to find a costume that would make me look anything remotely like Cookie Monster.  If you have any ideas please let me know.

For this reason,  I have decided to stick with the first dare that was given to me for my first attempt. This particular dare was submitted by my good friend KT (you crazy, hateful, woman.) When I first told her about my truth or dare idea over g-chat, she asked me to eat an entire box of altoids in one sitting. Her reason? Because I love mints and am constantly trying to push them on everyone. My reply? Only if your breath be stankin!

I’m really scared about this one, but I’m not one to turn down a dare. Wait. Do altoids hurt your stomach? They kinda look like tums, so I’m just going to pretend that is what they are…

Here. We. Go.

**The video/audio/lighting/AND MY HAIR is extremely poor quality. Please excuse all of these.  ESPECIALLY THE HAIR! IT LOOKS LIKE ALPHA ALPHA!!! I DON”T KNOW WHY LA DIDN”T STOP ME!

The outcome? I did it! My nose is running and my wine doesn’t taste very good, but all in all it wasn’t as difficult as I had imagined. I also think I should get a pass for brushing my teeth for a week. Just kidding… kinda.

Also, while these curiously strong  mints are only 10 calories per 25 of those suckas, the whole box comes out to a whole 250 calories. So it looks like I’m gonna have to do a few extra laps this week.

I think my boyfriend John Cusack would be proud.

If you would like to suggest another DARE or TRUTH for that matter, do it, do it, do it in the comments!

    What are Altoids? Are they just like mints? I don't think we have them here, and I don't think eating a lot of mints would be hard.

    But anyway, congrats on getting through the whole lot.

    I like the cookie monster idea.

  • badassgeek

    You are crazy. But I think that's why I like you.

  • Pollypoptart

    Hehe – congrats! Your boyfriend John Cusack would DEFINITELY be proud!

  • princessofsarcasm

    Oh dear Lord, you have lost your mind….and now…your tastebuds too.

  • Tara

    Dude, your breath probably brought people to tears with how minty it must have smelled.

    Did you get sick?

  • SillyJaime

    Honestly? It hurt me just watching you do this. I literally cringed for the entire 4:18.

  • ktcotton

    Well you did it, thanks and congrats on completing my dare! I can't lie I was hoping for a little puke but I'll settle for the anguish in your eye 😉

  • lralln9

    KT, I have to admit, I was hoping for some puke too…

  • thatkindofgirl

    Oh Carissa. My stomach roils for you.

    My dare for you: we all know you're a huge N*Sync fan. Park your car in front of the grocery store or mall or some other high-traffic area, leave the windows open and blasting an N*Sync song, and dance the whole choreographed routine from the song's video.

  • jeneypeney

    “Describe what you're feeling right now.”
    “Burning! Burning, burning, burning!”

    You are an effin' rock star.

    I've got a truth for you – If you could chose any blogger to be your slave for the day, who would it be and why? What would be the first thing you would make them do?

  • Nikki

    Minty fresh! I wonder if the cinnamon ones burn more…?

    Oh pretty please do the cookie monster! You should know a friend of mine posted that idea on facebook, that's where I got it. It's not an original Nikki idea, but equally awesome.

  • Natalie Cottrell

    You are adorable, Carissa. And insane. Haha. Please, please, please, no one else dare her to eat anything terrible! You are a champ for following through, lady!

  • ktcotton

    I think you can help induce puke if next time your filming her you wipe a booger on her :)

  • Dani

    Way to blow that dare out of the water. I'm thinking you may have been better off with the wintergreen ones…they are a little more gentle. But obviously you are awesome enough to not need such a handicap. ::high five::

  • CarissaJaded

    Altoids are mints, but they are reallllly strong….

  • CarissaJaded

    Thanks badass, I like you too.

  • CarissaJaded

    I AGREE!

  • CarissaJaded

    Oh I lost my mind ages ago. The tastebud thing Ill have to get used to…

  • lifeonahanger

    not kidding when I say I got a little nosh during that…actually a lot nosh. EW. EW. EW. but awesome still.

    DARE: I dare you to go out one night, stuff your tummy and pretend your pregnant and DRINK. I will love you forever. Every time me and the girls go out and creepers hit on us, we tell them we're celebrating one of our pregnancies, they freak and walk away…classic. classic. OXOXXOXO

  • CarissaJaded

    I didn't.. but my stomach is still a burning a little…

  • lifeonahanger

    ALso, I want your watch. gracias.

  • CarissaJaded

    I love it!! You know I'm going to enjoy this one a little too much…

  • CarissaJaded

    Ahhh nice one jeney! I have to think about that one….

  • CarissaJaded

    I could probably do the cinnamon ones no problem.. I love the cinnamons!!! I don't care where you got the idea, it's brilliant!!! My friend just found a costume so i'm gonna hopefully attempt this one this weekend.

  • CarissaJaded

    Insane? probably! One time in college I ate a piece of bread that was soaked in tobasco sauce. It still hurts my brain to think about it…

  • CarissaJaded

    mmm the cinnamon ones are the best!!! I'll probably never be able to eat this normal kind again!

  • CarissaJaded

    HAHAHA ok I will definitely do this!!! Maybe this weekend even. Love it!

  • CarissaJaded

    Oh and my best friend/roomie just gave me the watch last week and I loves it! She works for toy watch. It's awesome.

  • tatorhead328

    I want to see this dare, too! You're lucky your stomach didn't explode.

  • floreta

    a curiously strong candycane. hahaha.
    wow. points for you for interactivity with your blog via dares. i don't think i'm brave enough to do that!!

  • LiLu

    You are insane.


  • meg

    bwahaha, wow, that made me feel entirely ill. but good job!! that random dog was very cute and looked fairly unimpressed with your mint eating abilities though.

  • ambermurphy

    It kept buffering so I got to pause on your grimaces. Which was hilar. Then I got to pause on your expressions of triumph, which made me smilespice.

    I. adore. you!

    I can't wait to see the completion of many, many more dares.

  • edadams

    Pansy. I was hoping you were going to dump the whole tin in your mouth at once.

    Seriously though, good job.

  • edadams

    Oh yeah…Bring your ass to St. Louis for the Roundup on April 30th thru May 2nd.

    We'll work on some good dares over a 5th of Jack.

  • Andhari

    INSANEEEE!! I would've been coughing and spitting stuff out haha I love it! You rock.

  • BobbiJanay

    Holy cow you crazy girl.

  • thebacksofmyeyelids

    And no subsequent stomach problems? You are definitely a force to be reckoned with!!!

  • Kimwithak

    Love it! I think I'd throw up about a quarter of the way in.

  • Sadako

    Now that's dedication! Go you!

  • The Constant Complainer

    OMG, I couldn't believe that video. Your facial expressions were the best. I can only imagine how strong that taste was – no wonder your eyes were watering. LOL. Great dare though.

    It seems like some of your readers are taking it easy on you, with not-so-tough challenges. Although I did enjoy the one suggesting you dance at a busy intersection, etc.

    My dare – drink a mustard/milk combination. LOL.

  • The Constant Complainer

    P.S. It has been WAY too long since you visited The CC. I hope you'll stop by sometime soon. Take care.

  • winey_mommy

    Bwahaha! I thought you were going to throw up at the end.

    And wine + curiously strong mints = ewwww…

  • Sherri

    I'm so far behind in blog-reading! I hope you still read these comments!
    I DARE YOU: to go into a grocery store and bring the following items to the register – a cucumber, Vaseline, rubber gloves. You should be pretending to talk on the phone as you give your items to the cashier. Then, quickly say, “Oh I'm so sorry! I won't be needing these – my date just got canceled!”

  • Adam

    DARE: I want your roommate to pick her nose and put the reminants on your cheek without any gagging! Good luck!

  • I dare you to check me out!

    I dont think the mints were so hard for a dare. But I don’t know how they were influencing your digestion – perhaps the mean consequences came later…!
