I'll Bet You Didn't Know ...

You've heard of David Letterman's Top 10 list, right? Well, here is my twist on his idea. Here is a list of 25 things I'll bet you didn't know about me. You see ... I like to write as if you're sitting across the table from me and we're sharing a cup of tea (or a plate of cookies) and having a conversation. But to have a conversation we need to get to know each other a little better, right?

Here is my plan. I'll break the ice and share 25 things with you. In return, you have to share 3 things with me. Things I might not already know. What do you say? Are you game?

#1 - The only thing I will dip in catsup is a french fry.
#2 - I took dance classes for more than 10 years.
#3 - I think I sing great in the car (with the windows up).
#4 - I like PB&J on toast, but never on squishy bread.
#5 - I love to wear blue and green together. I find it calming.
#6 - I sold my first car as a teenager for $25 more than I paid for it.
#7 - The buyer had to tow the car away (see #6).
#8 - I like to watch movie marathons of 'Sleepless in Seattle' and 'You've Got Mail' (and recite all the best lines on cue).
#9 - Flower gardens are my peaceful place.
#10 - When I look deep into a horse's eyes I feel like I can tell what it's thinking.
#11 - I once did a backwards figure 8 on ice skates.
#12 - I tend to play the peacekeeper all to well.
#13 - I believe true friendships should be a 2-way street.
#14 - I can play indoor basketball games & miniature golf pretty well.
#15 - If you want me to 'unfriend' you on Facebook all you need to do is invade my computer space by swearing in your posts.
#16 - I love to bring water bottles to my neighbor's dog to play with.
#17 - I used to draw accurate caricatures of my kids' faces on their lunch bags when they went on field trips so they could find their lunch in the bin.
#18 - I met my husband 31 years ago when I was a waitress in college. He gave me a good tip and I gave him my phone number.
#19 - I sometimes laugh uncontrollably until tears run down my face.
#20 - I once lived in England for a year.
#21 - I could probably eat pizza everyday if my family would let me.
#22 - My husband knows me well enough to just pass me the Kleenex box when a Hallmark movie is on.
#23 - I like to push my kids' buttons when I can (metaphorically speaking).
#24 - I weighed 103# on my wedding day.
and ...
#25 - I nearly fell out of a roller coaster ride at Disneyland (on my honeymoon, no less).

Ok ... now it's your turn. Don't let me down.


  1. 1. Had my first motorcycle ride from a co-worker as a retirement present - thrilling.
    2. As a current "hugger", I always hated people touching me and didn't like them invading "my space"
    3. Enjoy people, but uncomfortable in groups (even if I know everyone)

  2. It's always nice to get to know people. Thanks for commenting. I've come across a few huggers in my time. It took a little getting used to at first, but it's o.k. now when you know who it's coming from.

  3. 1. I was a volunteer at my daughter's school in the library as I LOVE filing and there were plenty of books to re-shelve (I might be the only one that likes to file).
    2. I am afraid of airplanes.
    3. I broke my leg when I was 12-years old. I only fell 12 inches off the bottom of a slide, and still managed to break it in two places.

    1. That's great about working at your daughter's school and don't feel bad about the broken leg - I broke my ankle 2 years ago by tripping on an area rug.
