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?

    7. I can't whistle in tune.

    9. There ain't no high like the Most High–but I get a pretty decent thrill when the screen at Publix tells me I've saved more than I'm going to actually have to pay for my groceries–couponing is quickly turning into an addiction!

    Kathy Little says:

    1. I never like writing with ink….. am constantly "changing my mind" so it's strictly pencil for me.

    2. The very best thing I ever did "just for me" was get braces in my 50's. You better believe I wear my retainer EVERY SINGLE NIGHT! I don't take straight teeth for granted.

    3. I love "quotation marks". I think every single sentence deserves some kind of "umph"!

    4. Beth Moore is my hero and was key in bringing me to LOVE "Bible Study" .

    5. I've done every single Beth Moore study she's written (some twice, the Tabernacle three times!)

    6. I grind my own wheat and to be quite honest, it somewhat makes me "prideful". I guess because it's the only "healthy" thing I do. Good grief, surely that ought to counter all the doughnuts and burgers I eat and somewhat balance out my nutrition.

    7. I play Farcle on FaceBook and don't know why.

    8. I LOVE to knit. Love, love, love to knit. But I'm a yarn snob and just won't waste all that work on anything but good quality yarn.

    9. I'm a huge rule-follower. I'm totally out of "stuff" to put down, but I cannot leave a number blank. I have to put something — same way with the Bible studies…. can't leave any blanks!

    10. I have been totally SHOCKED by how many of my own quirky traits were already listed by the other ladies. I think I could be "best friends" with about a gazzillion of them.
