Ten Random Things About Me
I haven’t done one of these posts since last August so I figured it was time for another installment. Here goes.
Ten Things About Me and My Childhood:
- Living on the south side of Chicago until I was almost seven, I remember I never rang a doorbell when calling on a friend. The proper etiquette at the time was to stand at the front door and yell, “Yo-o-o-h, Susie! Can you come out and play?”
- Upon moving to the suburbs I was quite perplexed to learn the aforementioned was unheard of and you actually had to ring the doorbell.
- A little brother was not only good to lay blame on for any mishaps; he also provided more dates for my numerous Barbie dolls in the form of his GI Joe’s.
- Learning sign language along with my best friend in the fifth grade made it easy to communicate during class and not get caught passing notes.
- It was not only okay to get a drink from the hose; it was the preferred method of re-hydration after my mother had just gotten through washing the kitchen floor.
- Missing the bus for school not only meant getting there late because I had to walk; it also meant coming up with my own excuse since my mother wouldn’t write a note.
- Reading the complete set of the ‘Little House’ series by Laura Ingalls Wilder will make you long to live in the Big Woods or On the Prairie or even on the Banks of Plum Creek.
- Reading The Borrowers series will let your imagination run wild and make you wonder if little people are living in your dollhouse.
- In second grade it is not only acceptable to have a crush on the same boy as your friend, it is improper not to…
- …having a crush on the same boy in seventh grade is grounds for dissolution of said friendship.
