Five Things

I've been working on this for a couple of days. I don't want to put things out here that fall in the categories of bragging or boring.

1. I have a hiding place in the basement. It's in plain sight, but no one sees me there.

2. I say lots of sick things that I think are funny, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. I hold back.

3. By the time I graduated high school I had lived in 14 different houses, 2 countries, and five states. I attended 11 schools including college. Since leaving college, I've lived in 5 states. Now, I've decided to stay put because I think it's a better way to raise kids. With that in mind, I've lived in the same house for almost 12 years now. I've had a similar turnover in the job world. But I've worked at my current job for more than 4 years. I often have the feeling that it's time to go. I attribute that feeling to all the moving around I've done.

4. I used to be a gun nut. I loved to compete in target shooting events. Somewhere in my 20's, my interest disappeared. A friend dragged me to a shooting competition one Sunday and instead of being interested, I jealously watched the bicyclists pass on the nearby country road. I won second place in my class, but my interest in shooting was over. I still can't explain why my interest evaporated. By the way, I've been riding my bike for distance, competition, and commuting since I was a kid. That's an interest that has never diminished, only brightened.

5. I don't have anymore now. I'll add this later.

p.s. I don't live at the green arrow shown in the above map. That's just my zip code.

I'm very, very intrigued by No. 1. Do you have an invisibility cloak? If so, will you please share where you purchased it?

No. 5 . . . it's like waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Thanks for playing!

We have a lot in common. Now I might warm up to you and quit being so aloof all the time.
