it is now my duty to think of eight random facts about myself and/or habits i have and share them with you. but then i get to tag eight more people. hee. here goes nuthin’:
1 [fact] i have been bitten by a squirrel and a dog. fortunately, not at the same time.
2 [fact] when i eat, i must chew each bite a number—an inordinately large number—of times before swallowing. ballpark? twenty-five to forty. my husband, in stark contrast, will chew three or four times before swallowing. this has resulted in much meal-time boredom on his behalf.
3 [habit] did i also mention i talk a lot during meals? poor david.
4 [habit] i sing along with music. i’ve heard this is a problem for others when the music is in the background of a television show or movie, and my joining in covers up the dialogue.
5 [fact] my first kiss happened when i was twenty.
6 [habit] like melissa, i talk in my sleep. i have also been known to sing and scream bloody murder.
7 [fact] when i was in fifth grade i got pulled off of the playground and into the principal's office because i was sitting on a swing to keep my skirt from getting dirty. i wasn't swinging (which, for anyone who didn't go to a chicago public school in the seventies, wasn't allowed).
8 [habit] i crack my neck, knuckles, wrists, back, knees, ankles, and toes. it's a wonder i'm still in one piece.
