Day Four's Challenge is
"Ten Interesting Facts about Yourself"
1. My Balance Sucks
I can't walk straight. The only time I walked in a straight line was when I was drunk. My guides know that I occasionally "veer off" and they know to give me a firm tug back on track.
It's even worse on the beach. I can't walk on sand! I end up looking like a damn newborn foal stumbling all over the place.
2. I'm a "Momma Bear"
When my kids were younger you don't dare get in between me and my kids. If I can't see my "babies" you're in trouble! I once shoved a cousin's boyfriend out of the way at a family reunion when I couldn't see around him to see kiddies playing.
Now that they're teenagers it's like:
3. Wanted to own a Pet Store when I Grew Up
Loved animals growing up and kept bugging parents for different types of pets til my mother said "when you grow up you can have a herd of cattle if you want!".
Have owned dogs, cats, gerbils, Guinea pigs, a ferret, fish and rats.
4. Have a "Phobia" of Worms
Can't stand 'em, won't go near 'em.
Which is stupid 'cuz I grew up in a Fishing family and that was bait. I rather use minnows.
5. Has Never Had a Cavity
Still have all my original teeth (except 4 wisdom teeth surgically removed)
6. Has Never Broken a Bone
I've just a "hairline" crack on shoulder bone when I fell off a slide at camp when I was 11. I was running up the slide part and a playmate was sliding down and knocked me off. Mind you this wasn't a wimpy slide like today's, this was a huge 12 foot metal slide.
7. Loves Finding the Irony in Things
The easiest way to make me laugh is to show me an irony.
Like the closed Weight Watchers store right next to the Dairy Queen, or an AA meeting being held in a former bar.
8. Loves Trying New Foods
I've eaten stuff that might freak some people out, like Calf Fries (that's Bull Testicles BTW).
I watch "Bizarre Foods" on the Travel Channel and go "Hmm that looks interesting".
9. Gets Cold Easily
I guess because my sense of touch is the only "good" sense I have left I get cold easily. Which is ironic because I'm a native Canadian and have been teased for it down here in Oklahoma.
10. Has Never Been in Trouble with Authorities
I've never been in trouble with the Law. I've only gotten Detention once in High School when I left the premises for lunch which I didn't know you couldn't do.
NOTE: Y'all are NOT allowed to use any of this against me!!
