Six Unspectacular Things About Me

My bird buddy, Indigo Bunting tagged me yesterday — I’m supposed to list 6 unspectacular things about myself. It’s harder than I thought it would be (although my daughter said she could list dozens of  unspectacular things about me and then proceeded to do so. Brat.)

  1. I’ve never been tagged for a meme before. This is my first. Which is interesting since I’ve had a blog since 2001.
  2. I don’t know what a dangling participle is. I always thought they were unimportant until I saw it mentioned on a test for a teaching position in Montgomery County many years ago. I guess they are important because I didn’t get the job.
  3. I like to do dishes by hand. But I hate to dry or put them away.
  4. I’ve never mowed the lawn with a gas or electric powered mower – I used a rotary mower a few times, but gave up on that because it was too freaking hard.
  5. I’m not allergic to poison ivy — yet.
  6. My first bee sting was when I was in my early 40’s. It hurt, but I was pleased to finally have been stung by a bee.
  7. Bonus seventh item: I don’t “know” six bloggers (not tagged by IB or Mrs. Slocombe) to tag so I tagged some bloggers whose blogs I read, but they’ve never read mine.

Tagged: Tina, Matt, Glen, Laurie, James (maybe he’ll post photos of the unspectacular), and Dan.
I would have tagged my sister-in-law, Diane, but she doesn’t blog.

  1. Ah, leave it to a daughter to volunteer to help with the list. I’d ask you to post hers, but, well…

    I hate to dry dishes too.

    This may be the second or third time I’ve been tagged, but the first time I’ve done it. And I barely know enough other people to tag. I was tempted to tag three lurkers just to get them to start blogs!


  2. Reading a new blog from you can sometimes be the highlight of my day (how pathetic is that?!). This one, of course, made me chuckle once again. I enjoyed the reference but am nowhere near blogging myself.

    I’m sure Clare could also list 6 VERY spectalular things about you.


  3. What do you mean I don’t read your blog? Okay, I don’t come by every day, but I do stop by once in a while.

    Thanks for the tag. Six unspectacular photos, eh? There are more of those in my possession than you may think.


  4. Hey, you, I DO read your blog. In fact, I’m subscribed and have been for a while…So there! And I’m posting your meme today. Hope you’re having a great week!


  5. I was not clear in my 7th item. I didn’t mean that everyone I tagged didn’t read my blog. I meant that some of the people I tagged don’t. Sorry folks!
