Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. I hope everyone is enjoying a truly fahhhbulous holiday season. Hubby and I had a wonderful Xmas and Santa spoiled me rotten (I had no idea I had been quite THAT good but I ain’t questioning the big guy!)
Last Monday I followed August McLaughlin’s lead and did a post on being a reformed bad a$$. Today, I thought it’d be a perfect time to spill the beans and give you the answers you’ve all been waiting for on pins and needles.
As a reformed bad a$$, I:
1. Sang the national anthem and God Save the Queen at a college graduation.
TRUE! As a reformed bad a$$, I took vocals lessons for a few years after high school and sang the national anthem and God Save the Queen at my college graduation. Yes, there is a video recording. But no, you can’t see it. It’s on VHS. Darn!
2. Starred in a phone sex commercial.
Oh yes I did! But, get your minds out of the gutter. While I was studying journalism, there was an entire class studying videography. I was a star in many of their class projects; one being a phone sex commercial. Again, yes there are video recordings. No you can’t see them. They are all on VHS. Dang!
3. Was teased for being a “teacher’s pet” and a “nerd”.
I know, I couldn’t believe it MYSELF when this happened but it did. In college I shined like the superstar, suck-up teacher’s pet I was. One time I even argued about a grade on a paper and earned myself 5 more points to get a 95%. Can you say total nerd?!?! My high school friends and teachers would have been shocked because back in those days, I wasn’t anywhere near being anyone’s pet or a nerd!
4. Streaked naked down a street on a dare.
Absolutely NOT true. I’ve never streaked anywhere – dare or not!
5. Got “saved” at a Baptist summer bible camp.
When I was 14 I went to bible camp with my BFF and was saved. I think it was one of my Mom’s last ditch efforts to steer me straight. Hmmm…it didn’t really work beyond the one-week of camp.
6. Won a Remembrance Day essay contest.
Yippers. I can’t remember exactly how old I was but around 13 I think. I won second place and was totally stunned. It was the first time I really started to think that maybe I could do more than just write in my journal.
7. Played the Glock in the school band.
Another all-time shocker! This is true. Yes there are photos. No, they aren’t digital. Sorry. I was in middle school and actually played the Glock at the high school graduation. I had NO IDEA what I was doing, couldn’t read music and just whacked the darn thing periodically hoping for the best. No one booted me out of the band so I must have done alright.
8. Got suspended from high school for an overdue library book.
Again, unbelievable but true. It was long overdue and I got a noticed that I was no longer allowed to attend classes until I settled up with the library. When I went to pay for the book because I had lost it, the Principal lost his mind (no idea) and suspended me for 3 days. To his credit, I was hell on wheels for most of high school so it didn’t take much to set the authorities off by that point.
9. Graduated top of my class.
Definitely not in high school. I was one of those kids waiting for a phone call to see if I graduated. But, in college where I became the teacher’s pet and a total nerd, I graduated top of my journalism class. Proud moments!
10. Have 5 godchildren.
Odd given the fact that I don’t have any children of my own and lack any sort of maternal instinct AT ALL but yes, I do have 5 Godchildren. I assume people are banking on my becoming rich and famous. There’s really no other explanation.
So there you have it. 9 out of the 10 were true. Thanks sooo much for all the fab comments on my original post. This was sooo much fun and it turns out, I think y’all know me pretty well.
