A riddle wrapped up in a puzzle, wrapped in an enigma...

I’m doing an assignment by Andy at WildARS Chase to share something nobody knows about me. But I’m going to modify it to fit my needs (what? I get points taken off for that, Andy? Oh, c’mon! I will be talking to the dean about how unfair you are about grading!) Since I don’t have a “I was born a man but now live as a woman married to a man who has no idea” kind of secret, I’ll tell you a bunch of little random facts about me. You know, in case you feel like, up to now, I’ve just been oh-so-secretive about myself…

* I used to be a huge dork of the type where I actually have stories that start with “This one time, at band camp…” Yeah, I was in the band. In high school. And in college (but only three of my four years there in case that makes me slightly less nerdy).

* I’ve never been arrested.

* I have been locked into the back seat of a police cruiser, but only for a ride-along I did as a reporter.

* A farmer who owned goats and chickens, a Mormon, a cop, a guy who turned out to be cheating on his girlfriend and a guy 15 years old than me: it sounds like the start of a joke, but sadly, that’s just my dating history (uh, I’m sure this goes without saying, but my entire dating history took place prior to marrying the PH… just so we’re all clear on that).

* I bit my fingernails until I was in college. And then just stopped. I had never been able to break myself of the habit and I have no idea what made me stop suddenly, but I’m glad I did.

* I’ve puked only three times in my life from drinking, but they all come with funny stories (one involved a piece of bread falling out of my shirt, another was the SJ in bed with me with no pants on story that gets told quite often and the third included me ordering “cabernon sauvigner” with a French accent). I plan on stopping this train right here at the third station and (hopefully) not making any more stops because puking your guts out sucks… even when it includes a funny story.

You get an A. See how fair I am?

I am sad thinking of your dating history.

Did you "play" the flute?

Andy, I am sad thinking about my dating history, too. But happy I married the PH because he is, by far, the most normal man I ever dated.

Dr. Zibbs, not the flute, no. And get your mind out of the gutter (although maybe you shouldn't because there were more shenanigans that went on in a week at band camp than there were in the entire year of college that followed it!)

LOL, hilarious secrets all.

Was it hot dating the cop? American cops seem to have sexy uniforms unlike their Aussie counterparts. Not as sexy as firemen, but still.

On a side note, I love how barely anyone has been able to take Andy's challenge unmodified!

the story about the time that KAT and i woke up in bed and i wasn't wearing any pants shall live in infamy. in fact, the beginning of our friendship is riddled with times of one of us being half dressed or undressing. odd the way that is.
