Most times when you read a blog, the reader gives little snip-its to what he/she has encountered or been through in their lifetime. Very rarely however, does one actually get a list of things a reader doesn’t know about them. So, in true fashion, here are 10 things you may not know about me:
1| I was a city slicker and a country bumpkin. During my childhood, my Papa and Oma lived out in the country so on weekends and school vacations, that is where I lived. It truly was my second home.
2| Horses have been in my life, always. I have been riding since I was two and I love every second of it. Over the past few years, I haven’t practiced riding but I am hoping that will change soon.
3| I’ve watched every episode of every season of Mad Men. Twice. I have almost contemplated watching it a third. For shows that have depth, such as this one, it definitely takes at least twice viewing to capture everything that has happened. In my opinion.
4| I hate the sound of slurping. Soup, drinks, anything. I hate it and it is gross.
5| I was a theatre nerd. I love theatre. Center stage, behind the scenes, all of it.
6| I have no appendix. I had never had a surgery in my whole entire life, then when I had my daughter, my body started falling apart.
7| I went to a parochial school K-8th grade. I have made some lifelong friends and I adore all of them.
8| I was the Midland County Fair Queen in Michigan in 2001. That same year I also saw Nelly in concert at that fair. Such a sweet moment.
9| I got punched in the ear stepping off a bus in 4th grade on my way home from school. The catch? I didn’t even know who she was and since I went to parochial school, she didn’t know me either and we didn’t ride the same bus ever.
10| Ok, so this is more of a confession: I have hidden from the cops once in my life. I was very young, hanging out with the wrong people and the house was having a party. Let’s be clear. I was not drinking but there were minors drinking. So, I ran in the basement and hid between two matress’ until the cops were gone. P.S. I had a boyfriend on parole at that time hiding with me. ((insert mic drop here))
So there you have it. Some good. Some bad. And some ugly. What are 10 things I don’t know about you?!
