Last week I posted twelve weird things about me - and asked you to figure out which of them weren't true.
Here is the list:
Most people guessed #12 as being false - they were right! I can do an approximation of the tango, but I'm sure it would make dancers wince (and maybe bystanders gawk).
#6 was just a little false - the electronics don't always work when I get done ;o) *wink*
All the other ones are TRUE!
For the other guesses:
Yes, I DO have a blue belt in Tae Kwon Do. However, after having a concussion, a broken ankle, a dislocated shoulder and a fractured wrist over the course of three years -- my doctor said to quit or get a new doctor.
My mother had me convinced I was allergic to wool - because she is, and thus I never tried seriously to get past the initial itch - worried I would break out in hives from it. However, I found some baby wool (Dale of Norway Baby Ull) and loved it -- it changed my entire opinion about wool from then on - all wool!
In 2002 I considered (and visited the recruiter several times) joining the army as a military translator. I have a natural talent for hearing languages and translating them - but have not developed conversation skills in anything but German. There was a training course I was qualified for (at a high level) that seemed promising. However, my mother said I would join the military 'over her dead body'.. and although that is her personal opinion, it swayed me enough that I continued my schooling and job at the time and didn't think much more about it.
