Thank you, Katheryn Lane for our award! Seven things about me? I’ve been interviewed a lot lately, and to be honest, I’m a little sick of myself J So, I’m going to try to come up with facts about me that haven’t been floated around ad nauseum.
- I’m an only child. Family lore says that my mom originally wanted six kids, but decided against it after having me. I prefer to think that they realized they couldn’t do any better; my parents have been suspiciously silent on this matter. I also joke around with people and say that’s why I’m so terrible at sharing, but I think I’m actually pretty good at it—and hope my friends agree!
- I was a ballet dancer for many years as a child and spent hours and hours and days upon days in toe shoes. As a result, my toes are funny looking and my husband loves to tease me about them. If he’d spent as much time as I did dancing on his toes a) he probably wouldn’t have been interested in marrying me and b) his toes would be funny-shaped too.
- My favorite quote is from Winnie the Pooh: You must remember this: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
- Getting to dessert is the only reason I eat meals. If I could have dessert after breakfast, I’d never forget to eat that meal again. At restaurants, I will often ask to see the dessert menu ahead of time so that I know how much room to save. My father-in-law is the only one who understands that.
- When I was in college, I kept a package of plastic spoons in my car so that if my friends and I (okay, mostly me) ever got a craving for ice cream, we would always be prepared. And before you think I’m nuts, I went to college in St. Louis, where most places closed by 9 p.m., except for grocery stores. Why I couldn’t purchase a package of spoons from the grocery store, along with the ice cream, is beyond me.
- I used to ride, train and show horses. Of all the activities from my childhood that I’ve given up, I miss that one the most. It made me feel like I could fly.
- I really, really, really want to learn how to boost a car. And by this, I mean do that thing I see on TV where they find some wires underneath the steering wheel, rub them together and the car starts. I don’t want to be a criminal; I just think it would be a cool thing to do.
That’s all folks!
