5 things...

5 least favorite foods:

1. tuna
2. steak/beef
3. cranberry sauce
4. cooked carrots
5. anything 'on the bone' (wings are unacceptable)

5 hopes, pipe dreams and shooting star wishes:

3. to make all those desired "cosmetic upgrades" in the house and yard
4. to have an oceanfront home - with a peaceful wing for my mother
5. to win Powerball - that's kind of a 'given'

5 ridiculous things I did as a child:

1. After being told we were too young my friend Kim and I secretly "shaved" our legs for the first time with dull scissors in my parents' basement. We were probably nine or ten.

2. I used a dart to carve the names of all the boys that I had a crush on into the knotty pine paneling in that same basement. And I liked a lot of boys.

3. I refused to eat anything other than Froot Loops for a few weeks because I was convinced that I had mozzarella cheese stuck in my throat. The doctors even took x-rays.

4. I fell into a swimming pool filled with ducks in the dead of winter. (I lived in the sticks).

5. My friend Amy, my brother and I accidentally locked ourselves in a coat closet and were trapped for hours. We were sweating after knocking all the winter coats on top of us. We could barely breathe after my brother sprayed WD-40 to try to loosen the lock. We managed to knock the doorknob off the door completely which ruined any chance we had of getting out. Our mothers found us when they came home from work.

  1. You made my day, including me on your list! Thanks

    Isn't there just something about Willie Nelson singing You are Always on my MInd? Sigh.

    I had no idea that Fruit Loops are an antidote to sticky cheese, and I have taken the CPR Emergency Response class. They really ought to include that information in their curriculum!

    1. HA! I'm so surprised that wasn't in chapter one!
