Brenda tagged me to play along with 6 things you probably don't know about me. I'm having a hard time being clever about this, or being positive. Usually, it's our best face we put on and hold back the negative. I'm not so sure I want to tell any secrets.
For instance, did you know I can be a raging hot head? I think it's a combination of hormones and that Arabic blood. I've calmed down considerably, but on occasion, I can be a raving lunatic. I never know when it'll happen, it just does. At times I've considered exorcism. I'm sure my victims have considered homicide. Thank God for waning hormones. Although some here would disagree, I think I've mellowed considerably. My daughter went to see a psychic last week, he told her to tell me to calm down. And I thought I'd mellowed...
I have two, count them, two tattoos. Oh yes I do. I wanted to give the nursing home staff something to discuss when I'm all gorked out, and since I don't have breast implants, tattoos will have to suffice. Incidentally, I can put this out for the whole world to read because my mother is dead now.
Speaking of my mother, I was deeply disappointed when she gave my sister's Chatty Kathy doll away to charity. It's possible I never recovered from this loss. Out of spite, I went and got 2 tattoos.
Like Brenda, I have man-sized hands. My husband calls them my bear paws. If he thinks I'm heading into a fit of rage (see #1), he will offer me Golden Crisps cereal or donuts to
shut me the hell up calm me down. Since you may not believe I have such big paws, I went shopping today for some new leather gloves. None of them fit-they were all too small. I'll have to stick to the same pair I've had for 10 years or shop in the men's department.
I can hold a grudge like nobody's business. If I feel you have wronged me, I will never speak to you again. Ever. We could have been friendly for thirty years or more and that wouldn't matter. I will stick your name in a jar and throw it in the freezer. I will then forget all about you. Really. On the other hand, I'm a loyal friend. I won't steal your man, your money, your jewelry or your job.
I routinely bite off more than I can chew. This happens in every aspect of my life including work, play, home, etc. I also eat more than I should too and that fits in well here.
Well, that wasn't so bad.
Thanks Brenda. This was fun to play after all!
