The Crazy Suburban Mom: 10 Random Things...

10 Random Things...

1.  When I was eighteen the entire plan was to get a degree in biology and own a car with gull-wing doors.  Lily Tomlin once said, "... I always wanted to be somebody. Now I see that I should have been more specific."

That pretty much sums up how the plan's going..

2.  My son got the chicken pox when he was about a year and a half old.  From me.

3.  Every car I've had (or drive on a regular basis) didn't have, or soon after I start driving it doesn't have, air conditioning.    I must be paying a karmic debt related to sweat.

4.  When my son was born I lived in North Carolina.  In a trailer.  Picturing that amuses my son to no end.

5.  I love cryptograms.  People ask me how I do them and I have no idea.

6.  No one will go to the movies with me because I know the end at the beginning.  (Ditto, TV)

7.  I have really good hearing; like bizarrely good.  I could hear my parents whispering at the other end of the house which was kind of useful.

8.  The flip-side of my X-Men hearing was lousy vision because really, doesn't every nine year old girl living in the tropics want glasses, frizzy hair and white legs that won't tan?

9.  I have Morton's Toe; where your second toe is longer then your thumb toe.  And it's the cherry on the foot sundae because it just makes my feet weirder then they already are; being able to pick stuff up with them and all...

10.  I made it all through school without reading a single required book. Hence my complete lack of the classics.    My best guess on how is I'm a great skimmer, with a photographic memory and my teachers had a fondness for essay questions.  Give me an hour and I could convince them I read that book and all the sequels.

But don't you feel like you are missing out on the classics??? I'm really glad I read those books back in high school. They were actually good!

I know the end to movies too--it drives my family nuts when I have to lean over to whisper my "ending" to them.

i loved reading these random things about you! I can relate with the AC of the car, and the tropical girl's dream! ha ha

What a fun read. I skipped most of the classics in school but then a few years ago decided to read a few of them that had slightly piqued my interest then.

I also didn't know there was actually a term for the toe thing. Awesome.

Great post. Love your blog.
