Turtle said...

Many of my friends do not see that i have my tongue pierced. I have had it for over 15 years but not speak funny or anything. It takes some friends years before they really notice it, usually if i start laughing really hard, mouth wide open! Then friends usually learn about the numerous tat's they cannot see as well.

Kitt said...

I named my daughter for the female lead in my favorite TV show. Luckily, one of my Aunts has the same name, so I tell people she's named for my Aunt, but really it's for the character.

Poetic Dreams said...

I could take my left leg,bend it backwards and hook it on my hip. It made me look like I had only one leg. My friends were quite impressed.

Currently I'm listening to Wally Lamb's THE HOUR I FIRST BELIEVED, an audio book, as I crochet. Usually I listen to 3 discs(approx 4 hr).

My husband & I had the agreement that whoever got home from work first was responsible for making dinner. He could never figure out why he was always home first. Can you guess?

joeanns said...

When I was a child I had several people that read books to me (fairy tales) and they all started off with Once Upon a Time, so I thought all stories started off with Once a pony time

In the 80’s I crocheted a black and white piano keys scarf for Paul McCartney. I mailed it to his office in London. A while later a friend of mine went to a Beatles convention in Liverpool and saw my scarf for sale at the memorabilia table, for some good cause. He knew it was my scarf, because I put my initials on it.

I was crushed. I wrote a letter to his office and said that they should tell people that the get so many gifts they have to give some away.

In 1989, I had the great fortune to meet Paul and his wife, Linda in Los Angeles before his concert. I was able to hand them some gifts. A lapel pin of a LOVE postage stamp for Paul, and I gave Linda a fridge magnet that was a little plastic camera, you pushed the shutter and it had pictures of San Francisco. After all, what do you give a multi-millionaire?!? They sought me out later and thanked me. All was forgiven, but no more gifts. When people say “and time stood still”, now I know what they mean.

I got kicked out of the Brownies when I was a girl for being disruptive. I really didn't mind except that it embarrassed my mother.
