Inspired today by this photo by mantamagorical, as well as a couple of fine bloggers–mrs fringe (who just celebrated her one year blogiversary <3) and Opinionated Man, who just started following me, so I returned the favor (guess who gets the better end of that deal? :-))–I thought I’d change things up today.
Aw, poo. I’m sick. And tired. I shall spare the sordid details. Suffice to say I can’t write anything of substance today. My brain won’t let me and so, I shall look back and share some things I’ve done over the years. Hopefully, you will find some of it interesting.
I’ve tried to save a snake, mouse, and turtle. All three bit me. I had a sopping wet cat’s dirty front claw stuck in my cheek. It was a bugger getting that sucker out.
I climbed onto the Vancouver Canucks’ bus. They invited me to a party. I didn’t go. Probably a good thing. I was arrested for walking onto the field of the old Tiger Stadium. They let me go, I was really glad about that. I’ve kissed Bill Freehand and I pissed off Al Kaline. I spent an afternoon with Mark Fidrych in his apartment.
He drove me home.
I got straight A’s in graduate school at U of M and was chosen as the honor scholar for grad studies in Education. Worked my ass off. The honor was pretty cool.
I fished for a worm. For real. It’s in EFFIN’ ALBERT, really happened. I called ducklings to the shore of the Raisin River in Monroe. They paddled over to me, climbed out and waddled right up to me and I scooped those little guys up, held them in my hands. I watched TV with a skunk curled up in my lap. They’re really dense, body-wise. Seagulls, on the other hand, weigh nothing. Light as a damn feather.
My cat Momma-Loo lived to be 24 years old.
My neighbor’s video of a guy saving a chimp at the Detroit Zoo went viral. It’s been on TV countless times. So I’m famous by association.
I look 20 years younger than I am. Sometimes I feel 20 years older. Not all the time for either one.
I can draw and write and I hate puzzles. I’m generous to a fault. I am selfish to a fault. I am trusting to a fault. I’m a Doubting Thomas.
I’m a Gemini which I think explains a lot. Mr kk says I wear my emotions on my sleeve. I consider myself to be shy. I wanted to be an actress, almost went to UCLA. I have hardware in my back. I have pretty eyes. I feel a lot more comfortable with men then women. Men generally like my company.
My throat hurts. I love my mother-in-law.
No doubt, as soon as soon as I hit the Publish button, I’ll think of something I forgot.
Sometimes I lie but not today.
