Five Random Things...

As memes go, this one is ubiquitous. But I haven’t done it, so here goes.

Five random things you might not know about me.

1. The poorest I ever got was when I had twelve dollars to my name. I was working full time, paying rent, buying groceries - the whole nine yards. But it got down to those twelve bucks and pay day was way too many days off.

2. I once went to a Mary Kay Cosmetics pep rally/recruitment meeting thinking that I might want to sell their products. It struck me as oddly cult-like, yet very seductive.

3. I rarely, if ever anymore, wear make up. A long time ago I would feel a little naked without it. Now, I feel strange with any on.

4. My proudest teaching moment was when I covered Darwin’s Theory of Evolution and the Book of Genesis in the same C.C.D. class. As far as I know, all the kids turned out just fine, thank you!

5. After I learned how to throw a football with a mean spiral, my folks gave me one for Christmas. I had learned how to throw a football at a religious retreat.

: : Care to share any of your own random things?

I'm not sure what a C.C.D. class is, but that sounds like it would have been a mighty interesting one!

Hi DMM -
Sorry about that! C.C.D. stands for Confraternity of Christian Doctrine - basically "Sunday School" for Catholic kids. I was little more than a kid myself at the time. I was teaching a special group of fourth graders who were beginning CCD later than most kids do. They attended regular preparation for the sacraments classes with the younger kids. But with me, they covered everything else under the sun! They kept me on my toes and lightning never struck any of us!

Hi Tonya -
I'm happy you enjoyed it!
I did have trouble keeping it to just five.
I look forward to your list - short or long!
