Five Random Things About Me

Okay, I have been tagged by Nikki to list 5 totally random things about me that most people probably don’t know. So here goes… oh, and as a side note, I will not be “tagging” anyone else for this task – I don’t have enough friends to lose one or two this way.

1. During college I took a fencing class and near the end of the semester entered an area tournament in which I won third place.

2. I have an irrational fear of sharks (even though I have never been in the ocean, and was only on a beach once in my life). Sure, statistically I am more likely to get struck by a bolt of lightning on a clear day then get attacked by a shark; but the lightning isn’t sentient – it doesn’t care if it zaps me or the next-tallest thing around. Sharks on the other hand want to see if I taste good. What if I taste good?

3. I once played the role of a vicar in a theater production and spent most of the play running around in a pair of boxers and a wife-beater after an imposter clubbed me and stole my clothes – oh, and I wore black socks. Mustn’t forget the near knee-length black socks.

4. In my dreams if I fall off a tall building or cliff or some other such structure or am forced to jump for whatever reason, all I have to do is close my eyes and I will land safely at the bottom. This is quite handy for example when trying to evade the fearsome sharks that have somehow swam up to the top of an unmarked thirty-story building just to see whether or not you taste good.

5. While I have not yet found any grey hairs on my head, I do have one solitary grey nose hair that comes to visit every so often. The left nostril, if you really must know. And yes, that’s my left not yours. I have no idea how many grey nose-hairs you have in your left nostril, so why would you even think that was an option?

I wish I only had one grey nose hair instead of the huge amount on my head. And I never knew you took fencing - how fun! I think that would have been such a unique experience.

Just so you time you get attacked by sharks on top of a tall building, the smartest thing to do would be to play dead instead of jump. If you play dead, then the shark will be confused and probably seek out another "jumper" who has come to the top of the building...and perhaps we are really discussing the "jumper" tendency in you and not the fear of sharks...maybe you should talk to someone about know I don't think it is healthy to think about jumping off of tall buildings, even if a random shark has found its way from the ocean, through the city and up to the very building that you are standing on...

I wonder where the fear of sharks comes from? I, too have a fear of those nasty beasts...but then I'm afraid of most water creatures - especially those with teeth or tentacles - I'm even more afraid of the water though! I have this fear of drowning...can't swim, you know.

I just have a fear of the ocean, period. Beau keeps wanting to take a cruise someday, but I can't stomach the idea of being out on open water. Maybe if I could still see land the entire time...but probably not
