10 Things You Might Not Know

Hi, Siestas! I think I’ve got a fun one! I saw this idea in one of those complimentary airline magazines and showed it to Michelle (who was sitting right next to me) with great enthusiasm and said, “I’m going to do this with the Siestas!” to which she dryly said, “Great, Ma’am.” (I adore her. To say that she has whiplash after going from Washington D.C. to Living Proof Ministries is the understatement of the year. She really doesn’t want to talk a lot about mascara and would not be caught stone-cold-dead in a pair of Capri pants. And never in her entire life has she had to keep a small bottle of anointing oil in her brief case…just in case her boss calls for it. She has also never before had a boss request a photo-shopped picture of herself on a Spiderman costume. A post for another time.)

I’m sorry. I have a little ADD this morning. Back to my idea. It’s not very original but I think it will be a blast. As we’re getting to know one another here in Siestaville, let’s hit the fast forward button. What are 10 things – right off the top of your head – that we would only know about you if we knew you really well? 10 random things ranging anywhere on your personal map that make you a tad distinctive? Or just plain weird? Think quickly. Don’t go for deep. Go for quirky. Don’t try to put them in any kind of order and don’t make them long. Just start typing. I’ll go first to give you the idea.

1. I have an addiction to Ziploc bags.
2. I hate wet socks worse than almost anything.
3. I was the only baby out of 5 born to my mother with no anesthesia. She never forgot it.
4. I wore braces for 12 years. I still often sleep in a retainer.
5. I am a read-aholic. I read over others’ shoulders. I walk the aisle on airplanes to see what others are reading. I read what’s laying on people’s desks during meetings while they think I’m listening.
6. I love Black music.
7. I need slices of cakes and pies to be cut neatly with a sharp knife and not gouged out with a fork. (Nearly just got a shiver at the thought.)
8. My children call me “Doodle.” I no longer remember why. Sometimes just “The Doods.”
9. I am a very slow driver.
10. I’m a go-girl. I love the rush of taking off in an airplane. I smile almost every time.

OK, Siestas! What about you? What are 10 quirky things we might not know?

    1. My husband just bought me a Kindle!!!!!
    2. I love the story and illustrations in Peter Rabbit, by Beatrix Potter. They always make me smile.
    3. The pinky fingers on my hands are crooked–they turn in because I have an extra bone at the top in each one. I do "hook 'em, Horns" really well!
    4. I ate most of the Easter candy I bought last week. 🙁
    5. I once drove too close to the drive-in bank teller's window and drove off with her drawer. Needless to say I didn't get very far. The sound of screaming metal stopped me. The bank manager had to come out and bounce the hood of my car so I could get free of the drawer and go home.

    Traci says:

    1. Somehow within the last few years I can’t pronounce things properly. My family and co-workers don’t know if I’m saying “hills” or “heals”. It’s become so embarrassing.
    2. I have the ability of knowing things about people or circumstances and don’t know how. It freaks me out and others.
    3. Every day I have to spruce up my living room so it looks just right (no cleaning; only fluffing pillows, straightening rugs, etc.)
    4. I graduated 11th in my high school class which prevented me from sitting on the stage. It was because of that “B” in Speech. I was terrified of speaking in front of people (still am). 25 years later and it still bothers me. Who knows I probably would have been freaked out to sit on stage too.
    5. I’m so terrified of sharks that I’ve never gone past my knees in the ocean. My family loves to torture me during Shark Week on the Discovery channel.
    6. I will not share a drink with anyone. Not my husband or kids. I can kiss my husband but can’t bring myself to share a glass he is drinking from – very strange!
    7. I use to love to swing on a swing set but since having children if I swing I instantly want to throw-up.
    8. It’s rare that I would ever leave the house without at least lip stick on. Even to go for a walk.
    9. I iron every piece of clothing I wear (except the unmentionables). Yes, that includes jeans.
    10. I have such tiny feet (size 2 ½) that it’s hard to find shoes that fit without bows, sparkles, or lights that flash. If I find a shoe that fits and it’s stylish I just have to buy it. Now it’s an addiction. I’m off to Nordy’s tomorrow to hopefully find a pair of Tom’s that will fit me – this way I can give a pair to another (and not feel guilty).

    Too much fun!!

    Shannon says:

    1. I learned to read when I was 2 or 3, no one is sure. But I was simultaneously potty-trained because my mom said if you could read a street sign and say "Mama, you need to stop at Target because we are almost out of diapers," then you are old enough not to need said diapers anymore.

    2. I don't like coffee as much as I like the ritual of coffee. By the time I put in cream and sugar it should be a light beige.

    3. I am awkward when people cry and make a fast getaway.

    4. I am an instigator. I sent my foster child to soccer practice on a mostly Jewish team wearing a Palestinian soccer jersey, and chat to him in Arabic. I am white. He is Congolese. Neither of us is Palestinian. But the faces were priceless.

    5. I love 80s/90s hip-hop. LOVE it. "hip hop hippie to the hippie to the hip hip hop an' ya don't stop…"still get a shiver remembering being a little kid and hearing that the first time.

    6. My favorite book is Anna Karenina and I read it every year.

    7. I hate Christian fiction. Oh, my, I hate it. (Also, CCM.) You want Christian fiction, you read Tolstoy or Dostoevsky. I am absolutely a literary snob.

    8. I am never not wearing a push-up bra. I don't care if I'm spending the day in sweats and a T-shirt, there's probably a push-up bra under it.

    9. I don't know how to cook and am afraid if I learn, people will start asking me to bring more than a bag of ice to parties.

    10. I didn't wear makeup or dress up, at all, in high school or most of college because I wanted to be taken seriously. By about 25, I decided if you couldn't take me seriously with a little bit of makeup, it was your problem, not mine. Now I am a Sephora fiend.
