6 Things You Didn't Know About Me

ok, michi! you asked for it.
smile

1. I love the smell of gasoline.
2. My mother is the heroine of all my imaginary movies.
3. I once starred in a Chinese TV commercial.
4. When I was in grad school, my house burned down. And I was glad. But I had absolutely nothing to do with it.
5. That was me who drove Susan Ryan's mother's car over the lawn and totaled it against the tree in 10th grade, not Susan.
6. In the 3rd grade, a bird shit on my head, & I've never forgiven that goddamned bird.

I love the smell of gasoline, too. Not as much as I used to. Once I started working in oil, I lost my affection for some of those smells, but it's coming back.

michi said...

okay now: you like the smell of gasoline. your house burns down. you did well to mention you had nothing to do with that ... :))

no 5 made me chuckle.

bird shit is horrible. it has happened to me too. i am always kind of scared it might happen again on a very important day, like when going to a job interview or some such. ugh.

thanks for sharing these!

Julie,
Probably everyone loves the smell of gasoline and just let it go by subliminally...

michi,
my mother threw a not-entirely-out cigarette in the garbage before she left for work and that did it. Was the only time she stopped smoking, which lasted about two weeks. i moved in with my stepbrother and my folks lived in a trailer until the house was rebuilt.

christain,
susan insisted on taking the blame, since she and my sister were the wild ones who made me drive the car w/o ever having driven before. she figured her mother would be madder at her if she knew what really happened. what a disaster. lucky i didn't kill anybody.

michi said...

ssharon, the chinese commercial was for a hotel in Dalian. In it, I checked in and swam across the pool. I walked across the lobby and went up to my room. I also rode the wrong way down the highway, which I suppose was just to make me look more exciting.

arlene, yes, come to think of it.
yuck!
