Terri tagged me with a meme. A meme?!

Like Terri, I don't do memes. This is a blog. Isn't a blog just one big rambling meme anyway? And I've been blogging for a long time. What else IS there to over share???

So, like Terri, I will continue to rebel and just do this one (what?). I'll try to reveal revelations not previously revealed here before, but I'm not making any promises...

Seven things you probably couldn't care less about me:

- In high school, I was voted "most humorous girl", but I'm thinking the sweater my partner is wearing in the yearbook photo - now THAT's funny.

- I'm not typically attracted to "beautiful people". I prefer some imperfection. For example, David Beckham is sexy, but not attractive. He needs some beer gut or bad teeth.... something.

- I've never been in a physical fight, but part of me is curious to know what it's like to hit and be hit.

- On that note, I'm a little curious about what prison is like, psychologically. Maybe I could kill two curious birds with one stone?

- When I was 3 years old, I was walloped in the face with a projectile softball. I don't remember anything about the impact, but I still vividly remember sitting on the kitchen counter in my house while my mom cleaned the gallons of blood off of me.

- My upper right arm is tattooed, I have two piercings in each ear lobe, I have no facial hair to speak of and hopefully it stays that way.

- I used to smoke cigarettes, but they made me feel heavy-headed and sleepy for hours and it was easy to quit; I've never tried recreational drugs (other than pot, I mean c'mon, I'm in my 40's); I got truly drunk more often before I was of drinking age than after.

I tell you only because you care.

I am fairly certain that prison has never been something I've wondered about on ANY level, haha.

The strike-through "you probably couldn't care less" makes us care more--reverse psychology! But this is quite interesting, I'm glad you posted it!

Yes, your "most humorous" partner's sweater is amusing--in fact it's distracting!

I've hit and been hit many times, always in self defense against bullies--though the last time was when I was a junior in high school. Some kid named Kenny picked on me on the bus every day, I have no idea why--I didn't even know him. It was all verbal bullying at first. Then one afternoon, he just started hitting me on the shoulder. Poor brat had no idea I had been taking boxing training with the Mobile Police Athletic League! But this hitting me on the shoulder naturally triggered a defensive response. I hit him incorrectly, but I beat his head in like a watermelon! At the time he probably didn't feel it, just had a hell of a headache later. Likewise, he got one punch into my face, but I didn't feel it. The reason is adrenaline. When you're in a fight, you don't feel pain because your adrenaline is pumping big-time, putting you in fight-or-flight mode.

So now you know--you don't need to pick any fights to find out!

If it weren't for your humorous sweater wearing partner, I would be inclined to believe that you made up the part about being voted most humorous. For that matter, if it weren't for your partner, I'd swear you were voted best looking or prettiest smile.

I have also been curious about prison on occasion. Never been curious about how it feels to hit or be hit. No thank you. You're tougher than I am.

Thank you for not really participating in the meme! :-)

So, does that sweater count as an "imperfection"? Hubba hubba.

I think you could hold your own in a fight. At least my money would be on you. I've never been interested in prison life. Something about some guy's girlfriend doesn't quite make my top ten list.

Thanks for sharing with us who care.

I also did the "iamincollegewhynotpullabong?" thang many moons ago, but eschew drugs (except Rx ones for legit stuff, like strep throat, migraines, etc!)

That bear sweater is the PITS!
