I once had Chai come out my nose when I was laughing in the Meadows Lounge at Huntington College. That was also a bit uncomfortable.
I sleepwalk. And talk.
I used to be a professional artist. Not a musical one.
I’ve worked for the Forest Service, been an executive assistant, waited on billionaires, worked security, modeled, sold cowboy boots and coffee and counseled adult college students, all within a matter of my first ten years of employment. None of these trades are related to my college degree.
I read a 1500 page novel when I was in first grade.
I got in trouble for reading a steamy romance novel when I was in third grade (refer to previous).
I hiked 58 miles in 8 days when I was 10 years old.
I never had a private lesson on the instrument I went to college for, before college that is.
I lived in a Volkswagen bus, a one-room cabin and a teepee when I was an infant.
My brother and I shared a bedroom until I was 14.
I’ve never owned a television.
I have had 6 cars in 10 years…two Hondas, two Volvos and two SUVs.
I love honey in and on almost anything (except dill pickles, you people are sick).
I have never had a speeding ticket.
I have never had a flat tire.
I need to knock on wood immediately. Good thing I’m surrounded by strange antique trunks and sewing machine cabinets.
I love vintage leather coats from thrift stores.
I used to work out obsessively, now I don’t work out at all. I look almost exactly the same.
I don’t enjoy being cold and rarely participate in winter sports for this reason. Colorado may be the wrong state for me. See next for explanation.
I used to shovel my car out of four-foot windrows of snow at 5:30 in the morning to get to basketball practice in HS. I no longer enjoy cold weather or morning workouts. I also used to ice my sprained ankles in buckets of icewater prior to practice, also not enjoyable during the winter when you’re thin and get cold easily.
I am not nearly as cynical as this makes me sound. I’m actually quite optimistic.
I love to give backrubs. And footrubs.
I have been an extra on a Nike commercial.
I’m going to someday go on a national tour. Not sure if it will be as a musician or a retiree in a motorcoach, but either way, I’m makin’ it happen. 🙂
