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?

    LovedBackToLife says:

    I was a WM (Woman Marine).

    I layed railroad tracks for 6 months.

    I can sing โ€œToo Much Heaven on Their Mindsโ€ EXACTLY like the record.

    I can recite โ€œThereโ€™s a Monster at the End of this Bookโ€ from memory. Just realized this weekend that I have been reading this book for 39 years.

    I only eat dinner so I can have ice cream.

    My 18 year old daughter and I look (except for a few wrinkles on my part) and sound EXACTLY alike.

    I prefer vanilla ice cream over chocolate but I have to have something chocolate to go with the vanilla.

    I have to ask the difference between blended coffee and an iced caramel macchiato (sp?) EVERY TIME!

    I thought Johnny Depp was gorgeous back on โ€œ21 Jump Streetโ€ and was delighted to see his posters go up all over my daughters room when he became Capt. Jack Sparrow. It was like seeing an old friend.

    Did I mention that I like ice cream?

    1. I'm addicted to The Weather Channel. Love all things weather!

    2. I didn't know I had naturally curly hair til I went to bed with wet hair one night when I was 35. I'd always either had perms or blow-dried it straight. Needless to say, I was S H O C K E D.
