10 Things I’ve Never Told You & You Probably Don’t Care! Ha!

I’ve been having a bit of a writer’s block the last few weeks. I don’t have an explanation for that other than I’ve just had my mind elsewhere. I’ve been crocheting like a mad-woman and that has taken up a LOT of my time! I will have a WIP (Work-In-Progress) to share, possibly tomorrow. Other than that, my pain level prevents me from doing much of anything. I’ve started my Christmas list already and have a few things (WIPs) in the making or finished.

I know I need to work on my novel (Spike) and I still have much to say in my Ex-Files series, but I’m just…I don’t know. I have no motivation at the moment to write, I guess. I’m trying to kick my own butt into gear, though, and decided it was time for a post about me (ugh, how boring!) and I came up with a few things about me that I may have never mentioned before. So, here goes nothing…

  • I used to be able to pick up a wet bar of soap in the shower with only my toes. Weird, huh?

  • When I was in my 20’s I could very easily do an awesome impression of Robert Plant. I didn’t look like him, but I sure as hell could sound like him! Everyone was so amazed that I was constantly asked to ‘perform’ at parties.

  • When I was around 16 years old, I took photos of photos in magazines of rock stars on stage and had them printed so that I could pass them off as my own concert photos! Shame on me!

  • My favorite shows when I was in Elementary School were H.R. Pufnstuf, Lost in Space, Gilligan’s Island, Dark Shadows, The Monkees, and The Partridge Family.

  • My mom smacked me in the face once when I was about 8. I will never forget it. She had brought a dog home that an old man was trying to find a home for. He couldn’t keep the dog in his new apartment. He was a big Dalmation-looking dog and his name was Zero. He was a very calm and loving dog. My dad wouldn’t let us keep him and it was very upsetting to my little 8-year-old self and I was hysterical (as my mom called it) so she slapped me across the face.

  • Once a wasp literally ran into my face while buzzing through the house and stung the shit out of me. My left cheek was swollen for days! I made up a multitude of swear words because it hurt like a son-of-a-bitch!

  • I skipped half of my Senior year of high school and still passed my classes and graduated with my classmates. When asked by my counselor how I managed to pass, I told him, “I did all the work I missed, any homework assigned, and I turned in some extra credit assignments. I’m not an idiot, you know.” He was amazed! I was bored with my classes and couldn’t care less about sitting there for 45 minutes, each class, day after day after day!

  • One of my ex’s aunts had a lazy eye and she made me nervous because there were times I couldn’t tell if she was talking to me or someone else! I eventually got used to it and I learned which eye was ‘talking’ to me.

  • I have a 6-pack of Coca-Cola Classic from the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, GA. This was back when sodas were still put in glass bottles. I wonder if it’s still good to drink?

  • When I worked as a CNA/CMT in a Nursing Home, an elderly woman slugged me in the right ear. She was a BIG woman, with a powerful punch. It hurt like a you-know-what and I may have said a few swear words to keep myself from punching her in the face. I knew that wouldn’t be the right thing to do, but it sure would have given me some satisfaction!

 

So, there you have it. A few more boring things about me that you really didn’t care to know. Haha. It’s funny the things you start remembering when you put your mind to it.

  1. Lmao, you made it through your senior year without going to class is just mind blowing! Also, I loved the TV show The Monkeys and the Partridge Family, Keith Partridge, omg! I think your writers block might be procrastination my friend, we sometimes get in our own way and need to step back and just look at what weโ€™ve gotten done. I know your pain doesnโ€™t let you do a lot and I wish there was something I could do to help. I wish you didnโ€™t live so far away so I could cheer you up in person, with some mudslides or Mexican food at your favorite restaurant ๐Ÿ˜‰.

  2. OMG, since when is slapping a child across the face appropriate to stop hysteria?? I’m not surprised you remember that!! I loved Gilligan’s island too ๐Ÿ’ž

    • My mom wasn’t the best parent obviously and she was the type of person who would NOT be told what to do or how to do it. I have many memories of unfair treatment, some abusive and some borderline abusive. Having said that, I know she did the best she could not having a good role model in her life. Her own mother, I loved her greatly, but she spent my mother’s formative years on a bar stool.

      I adored Gilligan and always hoped he and his friends would find a way off that island. As I grew up I realized they would never get off the island and that they’d be better off if they didn’t! ๐Ÿ˜‚

      • I’m sorry to hear that about your mom. Alcohol does such enormous damage to those in the vicinity, especially children ๐Ÿ˜ญ
        I love your take on Gilligan. I never thought about it that way ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  3. Oh my goodness, yet another thing we have in common. I skipped my senior year of high school to go to college. I’m still officially a high school drop out! haha! I love the Robert Plant thing. I bet you were in high demand. I’m really sorry you didn’t get a chance to keep your big spotty dog. If he was really big, he might have been a Great Dane. They have a Harlequin version that looks like a Dalmatian.

    • I really don’t know if the dog was a true dalmation or great dane. I was just a kid. It was black and white and very slender and tall. That’s all I remember, other than at the time I thought it was a ‘fire dog’ and the dalmation was the one I associated with firemen.

      I didn’t skip my entire senior year. Just half, and mostly just the classes I hated. I got caught the last half of the year so…yeah. Then I had to go to class. Ugh.

  4. Okay, I’m super jealous that you can sound like Robert Plant. Can you do his scream or you sound like him when you sing? Or…I was/still am a huge Zep fan. Jimmy Page forever! Can you record yourself and put it on your blog so we can hear? So what do you think of the Greta Van Fleet boys? We must be about the same age because all of the same things you watched on TV, I loved and watched too! Really loved this post, Deb! Mona

    • Thanks! I don’t even remember exactly but I think it was just certain sounds….like his scream. I can’t sing at all. So don’t look for any recordings! Lol. I love Led Zeppelin but I’m more of an AC/DC girl! I’ve not heard a lot of Greta Van Fleet but what I’ve heard I like so far. I’m 57, Mona! I feel so old! Thanks for reading! ๐Ÿ˜˜
