Six Unspectacular Things About Charmi

Yes, it's that season again. I have been tagged by SarahJane.

1. I have a collection of rocks that sits on top of my computer desk. At last count (seconds ago) I had 28. They are pretty, and varied, but because my memory is very poor I don't really remember where I got them all. Occasionally I think they might come in handy if I need to stone someone.

2. I rarely wear makeup anymore, like since high school, 25 years ago. I never quite got the hang of it. Perhaps, if I had been more diligent at learning this skill my life would have taken a vastly different turn. Perhaps, I would be running for VP right now. We'll never know.

3. I sleep on the left side of the bed, viewed from the position of the sleepers. I can't remember if I chose this position or if my husband chose the right side. I had never slept in anything but a twin bed until we were married.

4. I've had my ears pierced twice (same place), but because I can't remember to wear the earrings, the holes always grow shut. I'm not sure what compelled me to pierce them in the first place (or the second place.) Perhaps I was bored.

5. I have washed and blown dry chickens and trimmed their toenails and oiled their legs. I was forced into this behavior by way of having children in 4-H. I am not proud of this. If I ever have grandchildren, I will draw the line.

6. The last time I changed a flat tire was in January of 1988. I was six months pregnant with Tom. It was snowing. In Michigan. On Highway 12. I have had a flat tire since then, but I couldn't get the lug nuts off (rust), so I had to call my brother. He's a very nice man.

re: 2. You aren't saying that pretty VP nominees are so because of how pretty they are...are you? That would be sexist.

re: 3. You've always slept on the same side of the bed? I don't understand that about married couples. When Hadley was born I switced sides so I could be near her, or near the door so I could hear her and then go to her without tripping over something. And then when I went back to work I switched again so I could be near the alarm clock since I'm the first to wake up. You people don't do these things?

re: 5 I love it! And don't be too sure about your future my grandparents. My parents do some insane things now that they'd never dream of doing for my borhter and me.

#2 - I said nothing about being pretty. I was talking about wearing makeup.

#3 - There's no switching. Out of bed is left, Gene is right.

#5 - No. I'm taking this stance for the future chicken of the world and myself. No. If I don't have to wear makeup, they don't have to have their feathers blown dried.

I don't know six other bloggers. :( I mean, who am I going to tag, DDL?

I'll come up with six unremarkable things, though. I may have a hard time narrowing it down to six...

Yes, tagging people is weird. But it's September. Things get weird in September. Do your best...
