I’m really late this week for the Sunday Scribblings — it’s probably just about time that another topic is put up — but I was reading InlandEmpireGirl’s post on her blog,
Gathering Around the Table and liked her list of secrets. So, if you wouldn’t mind too terribly much InlandEmpireGirl, I am going to copy your idea this week and add ten or so of my own secrets.
- One of my biggest pet peeves is people that can’t use correct grammar. For example, saying I seen instead of I saw or saying she and me instead of she and I. (I must have been a frustrated English teacher in another life.) It irks me no end.
- My favorite type of book to read is about time traveling back to medieval Scotland. I’ve read Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series several times and love Lynn Kurland. For some reason, I always feel slightly sneaky when I read one — probably because they’re kind of fluffy and because I’ve never told anybody how much I like them.
- My perfect vacation would be either sitting on a New England beach (it always conjures a sense of nostalgia in me for some reason) or camping in the mountains, preferably the Adirondacks.
- I will always eat chicken or fish before steak — extremely well done steak!!
- My favorite drink at a restaurant is a frozen Margarita with extra salt — at home, it’s Smirnoff Green Apple malt beverage.
- I had a mole removed 22 years ago that was malignant melanoma — but as you can see I’m still here. I am a very lucky duck. Darn those blond haired, green eyed Scottish ancestors of mine!!
- I don’t wear contact lenses due to extreme dryness — and also because my glasses cover up the circles under my eyes.
- I wear dresses at home almost all the time in the summer but I wear slacks to work.
- My very first car was a 1965 Dodge Monaco — with a 383 4 bbl carburetor — and it passed everything but a gas station. I also had a piece of 2 x 4 that I had to throw under the back tire because it would roll backwards. Park didn’t hold very well, but hey, what do you expect for $325, eh?
- I have always been a bit more than slightly bossy (probably because I spent so many years as an office manager) but as I have gotten older, I am more than happy to let the younger people do their own thing without my input. I guess that’s personal growth, right?
