Well, here we go...
#1. Recently, I made the rather shocking discovery that I am incapable of telling a joke.
Now, it's not that I'm not funny.
Oh, I'm funny.
I just can't tell a joke.
How do I know this?
Because my husband proved it to me after dinner one night last week when, despite much coaching on his part, I could not tell a simple joke.
It kept coming out like this:
"A guy walks into a bar with a duck on his head. Bartender says: 'Hey, what's that duck doing on your head?' Ughhhhh... Wait, wait-- let me try again. A guy walks into a bar with a duck on his head. Bartender says, 'Hey, why is that thing on your head?' GAH!"
And so on.
(Big-time kudos to whoever knows the name of the truly awesome movie this pathetically-rendered joke comes from.)
#2. I was a thumb sucker.
Until I was nearly 8-years old.
Always the right thumb.
When asked why not the other, I told people the left thumb tasted like pepper.
Two days after a perfectly normal (albeit long), intervention-free labor and birth-- I was admitted to the hospital with sepsis (an infection in the
weeks recovering at home before I could
finally take my boy outside for a walk.
Let's just say it's tricky.
#5. When I was very young, my mother's nickname for me was "Tilly Tippy Twinkle Toes."
#6. As kids, whenever my siblings and I watched the Wizard of Oz, we'd yell "I'm the ___!"-- and then call out the name of the character we wanted to "be" for the duration of the movie.
I always chose the Scarecrow.
#7. And finally, I will end this meme on a totally random note:
My 80s haircut.
Admittedly, not all that outrageous compared to some.
Ahhh-- but look at the inspiration:
And then, that inspiration fully (and finally) realized at an office Halloween party--
There you have it.
I realize that most folks have already been tagged, but I'm tagging nonetheless:
