My parents always told me I was winner. Sadly, having never, in all my thirty-eight years, won anything, I’ve sometimes questioned whether they were just being nice.
But no more. Because today I am an actual winner. And here is what I have won:
2. Share 7 random facts about myself. -will do
3. Pass the award to 5 blogger friends -will do
4. Contact and congratulate the nominated blogs. -will do
(I totally just copied and pasted that from Jill, because I could also win the Will Take Shortcuts award).
Here are the 7 random facts about me. Drumroll please:
1. It took years of practice and hard work, but I can touch my nose with my tongue. Impressive, I know.
2. I used to have an irrational fear of the ocean and everything in it. So I learned to scuba dive. Which taught me that 1) there are even more scary things in the ocean than I ever imagined and I still don’t want to touch them and 2) I should not be afraid to try new things.
3. I got my driver’s license when I was 14. No 14 year old–particularly my 14 year old self–should be allowed to legally operate a two ton killing machine.* But I think I’ll go ahead and mine that period of my life for some very entertaining blogposts.
4. I love bacon, pork chops and pork tenderloin, but I will not eat ham. Or Canadian bacon. Those Canadians can not be trusted when it comes to bacon.
5. Band-aids gross me out. If my children choose to bleed, they have to administer to their own wounds.
6. My grandpa invented the tater tot. But I don’t really like them..
7. The pride I take in being from Idaho borders on the annoyingness of Texans and their silly “Texas Forever” pride. But I don’t ever want to live there again.
Here are my nominees;
1. Becca http://www.beccawilhite.com/blog/
2. Kelly http://diversifiedbeeson.blogspot.com/
3. Kimberly http://www.kimberlymontgomeryblog.com/
4. Kristine http://kristystories.blogspot.com/
5. Angie http://livetowrite1.blogspot.com/
Whew. That took a little bit of work. Still, it was pretty nice to win something.
I just hope it doesn’t happen again anytime soon.
Unless it involves a giant check and Ed McMahon.
But, I think he may be dead. I should probably go Google that now.
* Two ton killing machine was an actual description used in one of the Driver’s Ed films I was forced to watch. There’s very little else I remember from that 12 week course. Except for the screams of my fellow instructees coming from the backseat of the car when I drove.
