Seven Interesting Things


Last month, the mad woman over at Chased by Children tagged me for a meme. I’m suppose to write seven interesting things about myself — six true and one false. I don’t know if these are interesting or not, but here goes:

  1. I worked part-time as a male stripper in college. Women at bachelorette parties were the biggest tippers and sorority girls were the worst.

  2. I worked in Japan for a week. While there, a former NEC executive tried to set me up with his daughter. He even had her fly to America to visit me. My bad. I should have told him I was already dating someone, but I didn’t expect to ever see his daughter again.

  3. I can’t drive a stick very well. In college, I forgot to step on the brake pedal when I started a friend’s pickup …… the truck smacked into a concrete building. The building was fine, but the bumper was history. Ooops.

  4. I ordered way too much soil last summer. So I removed my lawn sod, moved the soil to where the lawn was, and then placed the sod back. I essentially swept the soil underneath my lawn.

  5. I never learned phonetics so I have trouble pronouncing words I’ve never heard before. Books with a lot of made-up words drive me crazy.

  6. I use to be fluent in languages like Pascal, Cobol, Fortran, and Assembly. Now I’m only fluent in English.

  7. I was born with an extra finger on my left hand. It was surgically removed when I was six. Just the extra finger, not the entire left hand.

So, which one is not true?

  1. For some reason I think you know more than just English. Yeah those others are considered ancient languages, but at the very least you should know how to speak Oregon. You know, laid back and with Berkinstocks…
