Random 8

Tag'd again. The Gray Monk got me on the meme for eight random things about myself. I'm fairly open about myself with my friends and have a hard time thinking of anything interesting about myself to put out here... with a little help from Mamaw and Tink... here is what I have for you:

1. I had a pet rock when I was 4 or 5 years old. This was around '69 or '70... way before there was such a thing on the market.

2. After my mom specifically told me not to play catcher one day for a softball game... I did. I got hit in the back of the head by a bat when I bent down to get a softball that the pitcher pitched too short and it rolled to home base. The batter was going to 'golf' it back to the pitcher the same time I was reaching for it.

3. In high school Sticks and I would sword fight in the hall ways between classes.

4. While bike riding with Sticks, a bumble bee hit me in the chest, went down my shirt and got caught in the bra between the boobs. I proceeded to take off my shirt in the road with cars going by. I got the bee out. As Sticks pointed out... I was already well endowed.

5. To this day, my hubby does not want to play Monopoly with me. While dating, Sticks came to visit. This was when we both drank alcohol. My soon to be hubby offered to chaperon. The three of us ended up playing Monopoly at my place. I was allowed to be banker. Sticks was losing. I got money out of the bank and handed it to her. A couple of times I did this so she could pay him. After about the 3rd or 4th time, he realized what was going on. GRIN.

6. When we had Coco, the poodle, I cried for hours after it's first haircut because I thought it wasn't our dog.

7. At 3 or 4 years old I had the medicine they used to knock me out for the EEG didn't last as long as they thought and I was one drunk toddler with the giggles

8. About 3 years of age, I thought every man in an Air Force uniform was my dad. Even a black man.

Per your telephone call, mine is now done and up.

Well done. And who says any part of our life experience isn't laden with fun?
