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 first job was at 11, modeling holloween costumes for a local party store.

    2. I am the only girl in my family and the youngest of 3. My 2 older brothers are 8 and 10 years older than me.

    3.My mom had me at 32. I always thought 32 was old for having children. Of course, (with God's humor) I was 33 with my first.

    4. I am older than my husband by almost 3 months.

    5. I was married at 30 and refused to have our wedding in any of the months he was still 29 so it was the month after he turned 30 when we were married.

    6. My first time on an airplane was a short trip at age 9. I flew again by myself on a longer trip at age 12.

    7. I take that back, my first time on a plane was on a private plane with my oldest brother and a friend of his. I was around 7 or 8.

    8. I love to fly and would have loved to have been a pilot. Ironicly, my husband hates to fly (again God's humor).

    9.I moved to TN from CA by myself at 22 years old. Fortunately God was with me.

    10. I love freshly laundered sheets.

    Not really an answer to the question, but thought this was funny. I was watching session 7 of The Inheritance this morning and my 6 year old son came down just as Beth was talking about the difference in a talent and a spiritual gift. So my son says, "Oh! I get it mom! My ability to stand on my head is NOT a spiritual gift, it's just a talent!" He's got it!
