TT #31 - Random Facts About Me

Thirteen Things about Amber

1. I am left-handed.

2. I am the youngest of three children - by a span of 15 years! My mom says I was the bonus child for being such a good mom the first 2 times - that's code for "oops!"

3. I was born on my sister's 16th birthday. And she was cool with it. I would have said "stick it back, I want a car!"

4. I was an aunt at the age of five.
5. I actually like to eat potted meat.

6. My husband was my first kiss and my first date.
7. I had the same Home Economics teacher in high school that my sister had the year I was born. That was class got to hear all the stories about my mom's morning sickness that my sister had shared with her class. Great stuff.

8. I would rather be cold than hot. My philosophy is that you can always add layers to stay warm, but there's only so much you can take off to cool down.

9. My favorite color is blue - it's a very calm and soothing color. Yellow is my least favorite color - it literally gives me a headache. I don't like "yellow" scents, either (lemon, banana).

10. When I was little, I would try to teach the kittens in the barn how to fly. You know the saying "cats always land on their feet"? Yeah, they don't. Trust me on that one.

11. Chester by Syd Hoff was the first book I ever read by myself. I was four years old, and my mom thought I had memorized the book and was just reciting it, so she dug around in the closet to find a book we hadn't read in a long time and I read that to her, too.

12. I am 26 years old and I can't swim. "I only doggie paddle!" 10 cool points to the first commenter with the name of the movie that quote is from and the character who says it.

13. I have a lisp. My husband says it's endearing. I remember having to go to speech classes in elementary school because of it, but eventually they just gave up on me. It's not that bad. And when I really concentrate on it I don't have it. But most of the time I don't worry about it.

LOL At teaching the kittens to fly. I think we all did that at least once in our childhood. Thanks for sharing!
