A stipulation in accepting the award is to share 7 things about myself.
1. I am extremely squeamish and unreasonably afraid of things in water. I almost always have to wear shoes when I go in lakes or the ocean and everyone will know if a weed touches my leg! Reason #5647 not to do a triathlon. My all-time biggest fear is crayfish. These things are nasty! They inhabit the lake where I spent summers as a kid and I used to have nightmares that they could come on land. Ewww!
2. I have a tiny bump on my big toe, which is believed to be a chip of bone, and it moves back and forth. I’ve had it for years and had it checked out by a doctor as a kid, but he didn’t think it was anything to worry about. I kind of like playing with it, but hubs gets a little grossed out – all the more fun for me! It’s hard to see in the pics, but I’ve moved it over the top knuckle for the second one.
3. In our early high school years, myself and two other girlfriends had a bit of a crush (okay, it may have been more of an obsession) on a certain senior, which led us to do highly embarrassing things like taking paparazzi style pictures of him getting off the bus and staking out his place of employment. Hmm, I wonder what Jay F******* is up to now…
4. I am terrified of flying, but I wasn’t always. Hubs was always a nervous flyer and appears to have rubbed off on me over the years. (He once suggested that a plane we were on was re-routing to a less populated area to crash, thankyouverymuch.) Over the last couple of years, he has travelled so much for work that he seems to have gotten over his fear, for the most part. Go figure, I’m the one stuck with the white-knuckle jitters! I’m playing it cool for this pic:
