So I’m tagged by this little game! I never do chain letters! I don’t like them; they are a waste of time, etc. However, once in a while it’s good to be introspective and let others in for a little peek at the real you. So….. I’ll do this one.

16 things about me:
I can recognize any English grammar mistake in a second’s time, and it usually frustrates me. Because I’m a teacher, I want to teach…….
I don’t mind dust in my house. Not at all.
I write poetry.
I don’t really like to use the phone very much. I forget half of the things I should say or ask. Sometimes I stammer and stumble.
I am not repelled by the smell of a skink, in fact I rather like that smell, although I pretend not to like it when I’m with others.
My favorite colors are blue and green, especially when used in combination.
I hate committees; I think they destroy really good individual ideas because they try to reach a concensus.
I’ve had four knee replacements, and now, a broken leg! But it’s fixed…..
I love to play spider solitaire on my computer.
I used to teach children how to write in cursive, and now, because I use the computer all the time, my cursive writing is barely legible!
I really, really love to shop….. maybe better than anything else…..
I played the clarinet and the oboe when I was in school….. I played for a total of ten years. One never forgets that.
I really wanted to be a writer and write novels and short stories….. my mother said I needed to major in education just to be sure of an income if I needed it….. I never got back to my first and main interest.
I am terrified of big spiders….. 1 inch and hairy is too big and scary.
I spent three weeks in Alaska in 1989. I took 8 hours of video with my camcorder and couldn’t get anyone to watch it except my mother.
Over 7 years ago, I married my cousin who gave me my first kiss at 10, and whom I had neither seen nor heard from in 50 years…..
