Why do I insist that this is my favorite color if it isn't?
Kind of like this pink, but not exactly
Beets taste just like beets. I don't like beets because of that.
3) I dislike being in deep water. Deep is anything over my head. Because of this our swimming pool is only five feet deep. I went snorkeling once in the Bahamas and forgot the part about the deep water. I jumped in and just about had a heart attack even though I was wearing one of those floaty vests. I finally talked myself out of the fear and had a wonderful time visiting with the fish. Until my leg brushed against some razor sharp coral and then I just became shark bait with a sore leg.
Look, If you're going to lay there and stare at me, I'm just going to stare back.
4) My favorite thing to wear is jeans and a cotton sweater. Since I live in FL I have to settle for t-shirts most of the year but I can still wear jeans if I want.
.5) I've been out of work for 1 year as of November 5th. Whatever.
6) My mom almost named me Gretchen. Lordy. My great grandmother saved the day by suggesting Cynthia.
7) I tend to read fast and not pay attention to the pronunciation of unfamiliar/new words. I have been surprised on several occasions by hearing the word pronounced aloud. A mild case of dyslexia - or perhaps in my case it's just called not paying attention - doesn't help. My first realization of this was many years ago when someone said "clandestine". I had just been reading a detective novel and my fast read interpretation of the word was candle-stein.
You asked for random.
I'm supposed to tag someone, but I think I'll give ya'll a break because quite a few of my bloggy buddies have already done this one. I've enjoyed reading them! I think I did this one a few months ago. I was going to cheat and repost it. But I didn't. I probably could have gotten away with it.
