100 Things: Part III {About Me}

100 Things {Living Outside the Stacks}

A few weeks ago, the family and I were sitting around the dinner table talking when Miss 20 said, “You never know how crazy your parents are until you move out and then come back home.” blank stare I proceeded to explain to her that we are not crazy, my parents are crazy. Their dad’s parents are crazy. But we are not. Then I started looking at my list… While I’ll admit nothing to her or the rest of those people, I will concede that I’m, ummm, different.

21. I’m a walking talking contradiction.

22. My daughter and I lived in my apartment for almost a year before I turned on the stove. I used to buy crawfish by the pound{s} from this guy who sold them from the back of his pick up truck for us to eat.

23. On my 21st birthday, my family called and said: “Happy birthday, we didn’t think you’d make it.” I was fearless: traveled around Korea alone, drove from state to state with just my daughter and a couple of bucks in my wallet, etc.

24. Nine days before they were born, the doctor told me I was having twins.

25. My birth father was an artist; I inherited his creative spark. I used to decorate envelopes with elaborate drawings; the hard part was trying to figure out how to make the addresses part of the pictures.

26. The hubs and I have been together for 20 years and married for 19. This is the longest starter marriage ever.

27. I think birds are flying rodents.

28. I have an M.A. in American History and and one in Library and Information Science. I taught American history for traditional and nontraditional college students. Sometimes I’d make them sing a popular song from the decade we were studying before we’d leave class.

29. Sometimes I think people won’t remember me, so I pretend I don’t see them so I don’t get my feelings hurt.

30. My motto is: “Fashion over function.”
