25 Things

Twenty-Five Random Things you may not have known about Me:

  1. I’ve driven 6 hours, round trip, for the sole purpose of trying a new restaurant. (Good Food? How Far?)
  2. I’ve been the cause of a spontaneous 2-day road trip.  I literally gave my cousin a phone call and we were on the road within 2 hours. (Arizona?)
  3. I’ve managed to fall through the floor twice — on consecutive days. (I brused my bum, Opps, I did it again)
  4. I’ve been engulfed by a bonfire explosion and can tell you why gasoline is now banned at beach bonfires: Me.

  6. I can tie a cherry stem into a knot in my mouth.
  7. I used to call my grandfather, Grandmadad.  I was very young.

  9. I’m looking forward to eating a rat on a stick in Africa.
  10. I had a motorcycle permit for a whole year, but I’ve never been on a motorcycle.

  17. I worked as a pipefitter in a shipyard for 17 months, 1 week and 2 days. (PLNU vs NASSCO, NASSCO was my whale)

  25. The cake is a lie!
