10 Things I’ll Bet You Didn’t Know About Me

1. When I was born in Gardena, California, 53 years ago, my teenage parents were offered $50,000.00 to hand me over to an older couple who were too old to legally adopt. My Aunt talked my Father out of accepting the offer.

2. My ex-husband and I owned and bred Quarter Horses when we lived in South Dakota.

3. I’ve never been drunk, though I do occasionally have a drink with a meal, or a beer on a hot day, and that’s as far as it goes.

4. I’ve never smoked a cigarette– can’t stand the smell.

5. I attended a Catholic Parochial School during 7th & 8th grade.

6. Though I’m not afraid of snakes and I like the animal, I can’t bring myself to touch them or try to pick them up.

7. I’ve battled insomnia most of my life.

8. I hate sea food.

9. I battled crippling shyness when I was young and was extremely introverted, which makes what I do today seem like such a 180 degree turn. Never would have thunk’ it.

10. I’m an old-fashioned bra burning femininst– and I’m old enough to remember the beginning of the femininst movement and the impact of the revelations that came with it.

  1. Wow – that is quite a list Lady Amythyst! 🙂 I am not crazy about sea food either (despite much of my life on the Pacific coast), and I also have never smoked for the same reason you have! I was extremely shy as a child too, changed as a teenager because I made up my mind that I would control my relationships and not just wait around! And I haven’t worn a bra in at least 10 years haha! Mostly because there isn’t much to put in one, but I know my health is better because of it! Thanks for this rockin’ post!

  2. I love this … good to know …thank you for sharing sister …now it has given me the urge to jot down MY ten things 🙂
