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?

    5. I cannot replace my Bible. I've had it since 6th grade (11 years) & it's full of highlights & notes & I just can't part with it. I've bought several different versions in the past few years, but I never use them.

    7. I bought a lawn mower this year & refuse to use it.

    10. I had a Canadian goose as a pet when I was little… It's name was lucky b/c it fell out of a tree in our yard and was almost eaten by our cat before we saved it and raised it. We thought it was a duck until it matured. My mom made Mexican cornbread for her every afternoon. She ate so much cornbread that she was too fat to fly!

While petting one it sneezed on my food. Suddenly we heard the Monkees start singing so we snuck back into the concert for a little while. It was interesting night to say the least.

    This is FUN.

    1. The teacher in me is wondering 'why' there are 900+ comments to read and enjoy but there are not 900+ comments on the harder assignments.

    2. The procrastinator and 'real' person in me says "who cares!" Let them post whatever and whenever they want!

    3. As a kid, as an Easter gift, I got the Osmonds's THE Plan record and before my sister woke up, I wrote on it 'to chelly with love,Donny' and convinced my sister and 3 brothers at the time that it was a signed copy!

    4. Wanting to be accepted — I went to school after ELVIS was on some network TV show and I told my whole elementary class that my Aunt was sitting in the front row of that famous concert and got his scarf !

    5. I CAN go to sleep with clutter around and dirty dishes in the sink.

    6. I have 'pulled out' and helped several baby calves come into this world when I was a 'farm girl'.

    7. I too have a pen fetish — I have TOO many different types and always try the latest or newest one from Paper Mate!

    8. I used to 'hide' the plastic bread bags I used to put my feet into (then into the shoes) back as a kid so I would always have 'warm' toes in the barn instead of having wet or frozen toes.

    9. I have 5 brothers and 3 sisters and I named the 'baby' when I was in college – Brittan!

    10. I tend to think I 'overquote' or over obsess about Beth Moore and have to confess and watch myself. But the past two years have been 'my earthquake' and only God's word and HIS direction through her bible studies have kept me from filing for divorce, wanting to hurt myself, and other such 'depression' issues. And, last night — I TOO slept with scripture taped to my forhead — as I AM not going to be defeated!
