I'm gonna skip C and D but if any of y'all are running short on blog topics this is a good one to pick up and go with. And if you decide to do it let me know in the comments so I can check out your own random weirdness.
1)Most of y'all know I'm basically a carnivore that thinks lettuce is the devil, but here is a things of things I like to eat that most people would turn their noses up at.
Fried Chicken Gizzards- Yum, you gotta love a food that can serve as a good catfish bait as well.
2)I have never done illegal drugs. Nope not so much as a single doobie has ever touched my lips. Most people do not believe me when I tell them this, but it is true. Besides, my brother did enough for the both of us. Hey, some people make damn fine bad examples if nothing else.
I have been at parties and even in the car with tokers, snorters and snorters so I guess it is possible that I may have had a contact high at one time, but it's hard to tell because I pretty much always have the munchies.
3)I once got extremely drunk on tequila and blacked out for the better part of a night. No I wasn't passed out, I simply do not remember what happened and my friends found me wandering aimlessly around the grounds of the XIT rodeo in Dalhart, Texas. Somewhere along the way I had lost one of my cowboy boots and the top elastic part of one sock. Never found either one. I tossed this in just so you wouldn't accuse me of falsely representing myself as an angel. After that incident I did not drink for a single drop of alcohol for several years. These days I do drink but with a bit more sense.
4)I was raised by a single mom. I credit her with instilling my love of books. She packed me down to the library every other week where I would carry home a huge stack of books, and she paid the fines when I invariably couldn't find or or two the day they were due back. What did I read in those days? Encyclopedia Brown, Ralph the Runaway Mouse, Where the Red Fern Grows, and oh I loved those books where you picked your own ending. They should make those for adults. After all a lot of DVDs now come with alternate endings.
5)This one's for you Jenny. As a child I was once forced to wear a red bow tie to a relative's wedding. I have never forgotten or forgave that fact. The memory haunts me to this day. So what happened at my own wedding. The Colorado contingent of my kinfolk showed up in ... you guessed it red bow ties.
6)I went to college to become a wildlife biologist but gave it up three years in, when I got hired on full time at the Post Office and realized I was already making a good bit more money than I would if I finished my degree. But it all worked out, I wanted to work outside under blue skies and nowadays going to work makes me feel blue. And I wanted to work with animals and the PO is chocked full of squirrels and nuts.
7)I am one of the slowest individuals on earth. That's right you can time my running speed with a sundial. Luckily I do not have much call to run these days, but should a grizzly ever come after me while out in the woods hunting I might as well fall down and play dead right away. That is what they, the experts, tell you to do isn't it. I'm guessing that is one of those things easier said than done since I imagine remaining still is hard to do with you have a large carnivore gnarling on your skull.
That's it for me today. Hope that was random and weird enough for ya.
