Tagged and tagged again. Man, I gotta learn to run faster. I was tagged a few weeks ago by Dana and recently by Lorraine.
I'm supposed to write 5 things about myself. And since I've done this before, I decided to make this an interactive list, a quiz, so to speak, for your interactive pleasure, just to see how well my readers know me. Let's see how well you do. Here we go.
Question 1: Which of the following text messages did I actually receive?
a. I'm thinking about getting a puppy
b. What would you say if I said I got a tattoo
c. Can I vacuum glass
d. All of the above; (maybe I should change my number)
e. None of the above; (why would I give my kids my phone number)
Question 2: Which of the following is true about me?
a. I once accidentally set my aunt's bathroom on fire
b. I have a strong aversion to buttons
c. I wash my hands about a million times a day
d. All of the above; (umm. . . Dr. Phil please)
e. None of the above; (I'm really Mary Poppins, practically perfect in every way)
Question 3: How have I won friends and influenced people?
a. I went to college with Michael Stipe
b. I went to church with Minnie Pearl
c. My son once caddied for Samuel L. Jackson
d. All of the above; (I'm a shameless name-dropper)
c. None of the above; (who the heck is Michael Stipe?)
Question 4: Which of these statements best describes my driving skills?
a. I once backed into my dad's car and blamed him for parking behind me
b. I backed into the only pole in a parking lot while learning to drive (and blamed the pole for being behind me.)
c. I avoid parallel parking like the plague, even if it means parking a mile away
d. All of above; (you probably don't want to be anywhere near me in a car or parking lot)
e. None of the above; (I ride the bus)
Question 5: Anything else about me you should know?
a. Once I rescued a baby owl from a building (which was being demolished) and named him Bird Reynolds (until I found out it was illegal to rescue wildlife, and the wildlife agency came and took him away--I really didn't mind; I wasn't too keen on stalking and catching prey for Bird anyway. The agency left the kids, however.)
b. I was miffed in 1980 when Prince Charles decided to get married without even giving me a chance
c. I've spent way too much time writing this post and should probably get back to work.
d. All of the above; (I need to get a life)
e. None of the above; (I need to get a life)
And if you're reading this, then you must run slower than I do, so. . . . You're "It."
[Addendum: In case you're wondering, all the answers are "d". ]
