MommieBear at Who Cries Over Spilled Milk tagged me for the 3 Things Meme. But because I have ADD I have turned it into the 1 Thing meme. I like MommieBear cause she leaves me nice comments and sells sex toys. You can't beat that kind of combination.
One Thing That Scares Me:
Crayfish. When I went to girl scout camp (Camp Chippewa Bay) it was overrun with crayfish. You couldn't swim without them pinching your toes. And if you stepped on one it would pinch you and then shoot backwards into the sand. Shudder. I rejoice when I see people sucking the brains out of crayfish.
One Person Who Makes Me Laugh:
Carol, sis-in-law/friend. She blows farts in my direction with abandon and never gives me pity looks when I dork out. And she's the first person I call to laugh about how son says "What the heck!?" At preschool and freaks the teacher out.
One Thing I Love:
My family of course!
One Thing I Hate:
Lack of empathy. I don't like when people are limited to their own experiences as a measure of what should or shouldn't be done or felt. Read a book - expand your freaking perspective already.
One Thing I Don't Understand:
How to flirt. Surprising I know. I do enjoy a good sex banter. But I'm hopeless at cute girl flirting. When I watch The Bachelor I bow down to their flirting expertise. They actually work it out ahead of time by planning how to use their "cute hat, scarf" into the date flirt routine. I'm just happy when I don't fall down.
One Thing On My Desk:
One Thing I Am Doing Right Now:
Drinking Diet Dr. Pepper.
One Thing I Want To Do Before I Die:
Travel with my family. A grand adventure trip. Somewhere far flung.
One Thing I Can Do:
Tell my kids how great they are. I screw up daily as a mom but I always tell them I love them and how smart, cool, etc. they are every day. And I'm also a big reader. I go through about 2-3 books a week.
One Thing I Can't Do:
Be on top. I just don't like it. I get bored.
One Thing I Think You Should Listen To:
Your guardian angel. That voice that tells you to take some extra snacks, turn right or double down on blackjack.
One Thing You Should Never Listen To:
That horrible monster in your brain that tells you what a piece of crap you are.
One Thing I'd Like To Learn:
How to write/pitch a book.
One Favorite Food:
Buffalo Wild Wings Medium Wings. I hate the kind of wings that are fried, and BW3's serves them up right. Mmmmm.
One Show I Watched As A Kid:
BJ & The Bear. Oh Bj! Because of you I got my sister to make the universal "blow your horn" arm pull to all the truckers that we passed. Plus I made you play-dough pies and pretended to be your girlfriend.
One Thing I Regret:
Not figuring out my anxiety/depression earlier in life and taking the meds I needed to chill it out. I think because my mother struggled so hard with major depression everything else the rest of the family felt sort of paled by comparison. So it wasn't till I got married and became more separate from my family that I started to figure out that something was up with me.
Three People That I Am Tagging:
You, you and ok you too. Gosh! You don't have to whine about it.
