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?

    Your #8 made me laugh. We have called my 5 year old son Doodle since he was a little baby. Although a more proper spelling in his case would probably be "Dudle", because it is a play off the word "dude". I think that's probably the first time I have ever typed it. "Dudle" would be short for "dudle canoodle," and we also sometimes call him "dudes."

    1. If we make it one more day – tomorrow I will have been married to the most wonderful man in the world 27 years!

    2. I make my bed every day – the last time I didn’t make it was a week after my mother died – she always told me to make my bed because “what if the police come?” – I always told her she was crazy. The week after she died I came to work with my bed unmade & our cat set off the burglar alarm. My husband met the police at our house – said he tried to assure him everything looked okay – but he insisted on going through the house – THE POLICE CAME & SAW MY BED WAS UNMADE! I don’t even go into the kitchen without making it up now.

    3. I am almost 49 years old & not one strand of my hair has even been dyed. Mrs. Clairol may be my best friend tomorrow, but not today!

    6. I don’t really like TV.

    7. My dream job is to someday be the “story lady” at the library.

    8. Three of my children have worn braces & we have never had orthodontic or dental insurance. I made my last monthly payment last month – I figure it has been 10 years since my oldest started going to the orthodontist & our monthly payments started.

    9. All of my 4 kids have graduated from high school – the youngest 2 are in college! One is in graduate school & one decided college isn’t for him.

    10. The older I get the more I realize solitude really doesn’t bother me at all, in fact I rather like it.

    8. I love long walks with my man – anytime, anywhere, any weather.

    9. I love to read — have not yet mastered upside down across a desk but, have to consciously limit buying new books until I've read those I've accumulated by my bedside.

    10. Am unabashedly madly in love with my grandchildren and will show you their pictures with the slightest bit of encouragement.
