Honestly...........

Coach Liz tagged me to post 10 Honest Things about Myself. Wow, this is going to be strange,

1) I got lost walking home from school as a third grader. We had just moved and my older sister left without me. It was a two block walk but I was eight years old. I'm sure the pee stained pants and constant crying drew some attention.

2) I've only had one official fight in my entire life and I won! I was about thirteen and Danny Parks and I went at it. I got in a lucky punch somehow and stopped him in his tracks. I think I lived on that reputation for a few years afterward.

3) Not sure why but our class learned how to swim in the buff! Sans swimming suits for everyone. Can't imagine that happening in these times.

4) I am scared to death of drowning! Even though I know how to swim, it's all done in a pool where I can see lane markers and touch the bottom. Never have swam in a lake or river or ocean.....

5) I procrastinate with the best of them. Not sure why but it's been a thorn in my side for years. I guess it gives me a New Year's resolution each year.

6) I received a scholarship to attend college for engineering and hated it!

7) Initially thought that runners were not athletes and that anyone could run a marathon, boy was I wrong.

8) Love being around my kids now that they're adults as much as I did when they were little kids. Just seeing how many of my good and bad traits they inherited is so cool.........

9) Wonder when I'm going to grow up and act my age.

10) Love my TNT family and wonder what my life would be like if I hadn't been given the opportunity to be involved with them.........

Wow, I hope I wasn't too honest! TGIF

Oh please don't ever grow up, who the heck would I have to play with?

I'm afraid of drowning too and I was a Life Guard!! Open water! and no, I don't look like anyone on Bay Watch!

I'm sure TNT are just as happy to have YOU in THEIR lives...

have a great weekend...

Great list!!

Very strange about the learning to swim in the buff.

You're an awesome coach and TnT is lucky to have you.

Enjoy the weekend!

You are hilarious. Why on earth would you learn to swim nekkid? Perhaps you should come to Florida and test out the ocean. Nudity is frowned upon in most beaches, but I know a few....

CoachLiz said...

Wow! Learning to swim in the buff. That is wild.

Great facts! I am still trying to figure out what I am going to be when I grow up too.

Were your swim lessons conducted at the Neverland Ranch? How old were you? Were they coed? I have so many questions about this!

I also suffer from procrastination...I heard once it was a sign of perfectionism. We should claim that instead. : )
