Now I’ve been tagged. When will the madness end?

Nick tagged me so now I have to share 5 things that you may not know about me…

1> When I was really little, my mom had me in one of those carrier things that let you carry your kid in a picnic basket-like contraption… well she set me down on the kitchen table and went to put away some groceries or something. Now I don’t know how it happened, if the table was tilted or there was a mischievous gremlin, but somehow, when my mom’s back was turned, I slid off the table in my carrier and went crashing down… right into the trash basket! No physical harm came to me because of this, but it is true, I am the original “Garbage Pail Kid”.

2> I went to eleven different schools before graduating highschool in 1989.

3> In the 8th grade, I missed more days of school then I went to because kids are mean and I was unpopular, yet I still managed to get to the 9th grade the next year.

4> 9th grade saw me take my mom’s car to school regularly even though I did not have her permission or a driver’s license. She commuted using the subway since we lived in Washington DC at the time, that how I was able to get away with it.

5> My senior year of highschool I had a Pinto and was a bad driver. Sometimes I would lose control of my car on the dirt roads and spend time driving in the ditch. Apparently a neighboron the road saw me do this one day and weeks later ran out in front of the car as I was driving by. Wagging a finger at me, he said in this Dukes of Hazzard, Rosco P. Coltrane voice , “I said i’d gitcha and I gotcha!” and that saw he what I done did and that his eye was on me, blah, blah, blah. My sister Jen and I were in tears because of his chastisement… we just couldn’t stop laughing. “Ga, ga ,ga. I’m gonna git dem Dukes!”

Ok, now who do I tag? Most all my blogging buddies have been tagged.
