The results...

So after getting the results, I realized that I put in two trick questions ;)

Anyway, here are the widely-anticipated results, he-he:

1. I have NOT been kicked out of a bank -- almost everyone got this one, thanks to the recent five unusual things list ;)

2. Here was the first trick question -- yes, I adore chocolate (and state it often)...but ONLY dark chocolate. In fact, I once was given a dozen Mrs. Field's milk chocolate cookies (my favorite brand), and I didn't eat one of them! Milk and white don't cut it -- only dark will do! (no one got this one, he-he)

3. I was married at 31 (Alison, Liz, and Tina got this one right).

4. For the second trick question -- I didn't phrase it well, because I WAS a physic major for a while; but I got my degree in Music. (he-he) Jayme, Sarah, Tina, Kay, Pam, and Liz (for knowing that it was once physics) got it right.

5. This one was hard, because I've only mentioned it once -- but yeah, I wrote my hs term paper (which was supposed to be on a classic author) on Agatha Christie. I only got away with it because my teacher loved AC (and Stephen King, which was the only other non-classic author chosen). Shirley got this on right -- way to go, Shirley!

6. I kind of wax poetic (or just long) about my favorite author -- George MacDonald. Alison, Liz, Sarah, and Els got this one :)

So thanks for playing! It was fun (for me, at least) :D

Once upon a time...

I worked at a camp. I chose wisely -- well, for a teen. I went through the 'find a camp to work at' book (or something similar), and picked the ONE (yep, only applied to one) that was on an island. After all, I live in Colorado -- I didn't need one in the mountains (which included all the others -- except those in Iowa or Kansas, and well...not for me).

I ended up being chosen for their new program of high school leader -- which meant I worked with teens. Great! Of course, I was still 19 myself, but....

This is what I learned, in no particular order:

- warthogs are not shy (and they smell when they put their snouts in your face at six in the morning)
- mysogeny comes at any age and image (even good-looking 22 year olds)
- you can walk (and run and hike, even) with a broken big toe
- yellow jackets can be killed right out of the air
- having a spider crawl across your face in the middle of the night (a large spider, mind you) does NOT always cause a heart attack
- having a good tan doesn't necessarily hide the fact that you've gained ten pounds
- standing up against aforementioned mysogeny is a real high :)
- I am not a good swimmer; almost drowning sux!
- there's nothing better than a Colorado thunderstorm

Why am I thinking of this today? Not quite sure...but waiting brings all kinds of things to mind -- including ten weeks on Catalina the summer before I turned 20.
