Versatile Blogger Award

8 Jul

This marvellous honour has been bestowed upon me by two of my fellow writers’ group members.  I’m supposed to list 7 facts about myself.  Here goes:

I am shy in real life.  Yup.  It’s true.  Despite that, I manage to make a living talking to complete strangers all day long.  Strange but true.

I once was a private investigator.  No – it wasn’t fun or exciting.  It was witnessing people on their worse behaviour.  It was bad for my soul.

I’ve been in a bar fight – a real table tossing, bottle smashing, cop busting bar fight.  I didn’t start it, but me joking saying “Aren’t you going to defend my honour?” sure got things rolling.

I am a clutz.  I crush light bulbs when I change them, get my fingers stuck in kettles, get trapped in lawn furniture, and fall off flat objects.  Nobody asks me how I managed it anymore – they just rescue me.

I am not logical.  My favourite saying is “Why do you keep trying to apply logic to the situation?”  For example:  I hate driving.  I hate pumping gas for my car.  Ironically, I will drive miles out of my way so I don’t have to pump gas.

My parental motto is “Nobody dies on my watch.”  Which is a lot harder to apply than it sounds.

After twenty three and a half years, I am still crazy in love with my husband.

    Oh now that was funny! But you forgot to mention that even if you are shy, you still know how to come up with those ‘zingers’ that make everyone laugh. You’ve got a great sense of humour and it shows reading this. I enjoyed it and it brought a smile to my face with my morning coffee…more enjoyable than a donut with the coffee LOL! 🙂

    Congrats on your post, lovely to get to see another side to you and to be honest I’m pretty clutzy as well. Also big kudos for all those years. I’ve been with my other half for 14 years now. If I’d killed her instead of staying, i’d hve been out by now. LOL

    Seriously though, great to see a steady relationship and I thought those sorts of bar brawls were only in movies.
