So, I've been tagged...

to share 6 random things about me, that no one else knows. Kristin http://kwr221.blogspot.com/, is the tagger. I'll try my best here. If I tell you something you already know, you have my permission to cyber-smack me.

1. When I was a kid, I had a penchant for gross pets. I had salamanders and tree frogs. My tree frogs escaped, and my brother Chris (who else) put a huge rock on top of one of my salamanders and squished it. My parents made me set the salamanders free at a local pond. At the time, I thought we should set Chris free there. Actually, I'm still pondering this.

2. I was voted most sarcastic in high school. I'm sure all of you are shocked and outraged at this revelation.

3. I used to chase the boys on the playground and in the classroom trying to kiss them. No, I'm not talking about my recent return to college, this actually happened in 1st grade.

4. For my non family and close friend readers, my birthday is Oct. 30, otherwise known as mischief night. Again, this is so uncharacteristic.

5. One time, at band camp... (just kidding)

6. I secretly would love to do stand up comedy. I don't see this really happening, but am utterly fascinated at the prospect.

7. I am a shower nose blower sometimes. There. I said it. I know it is gross, but if you think about it, it actually makes sense. It is like one stop shopping.

By the way, I did 7 b/c number 5 was bogus. By the way, if I ever have occasion to use any of your showers, I promise I won't do that ...that...thing. Really. Now, if I'm at your house on mischief night, I might TP your trees or something.

I think I've tagged many of you with something similar to this, so I'll just say, that if I haven't tagged you, go for it. Be honest. Bare your soul. Tell your tales. In other words, make me feel better about my stupid quirks.

Ewww a shower nose blower...I'm unsubscribing immediately. Just kidding!

Chris said...

Wow! Totally forgot about killing the salamander. I now distinctly recall doing that and how cool it was to see you so pissed off about it. Serves you right for always ratting me out as a kid.

Note that my brother Chris did not fess up to be a shower nose blower. He does it all the time.

Chris said...

Yes. Busted. I do, in fact, blow my nose in the shower. And, I think everyone should. Think about it. You are surronded by soap and water. This means you can basically do any gross thing to yourself in the shower and clean up. Hell, toilet paper becomes arguably optional if you have the decency to keep your own bar of soap in the shower and make sure your wife knows which one not to use. So, yes, I blow my nose and do so proudly while in the shower. Funny side-note -- sometimes when cleaning the shower walls, you'll find a phantom booger that must have come out your nose at a 90 degree angle while holding one nostril and blowing out the other -- you know, something you might do as a pre-shower-nose-blow-cleanout.

I am NOT a shower nose-blower. Not that I *wouldn't, but it's so unsatisfying - when you're all wet, it feels....unfinished.
