Honestly,



OK. I got tagged to list 10 honest things about myself. However, I am not going to tag anyone else or provide any links. So, here goes...


  1. I have never been a good liar.

  2. I have never been a good poker player (because I'm not a good liar, I suppose).

  3. I was never in denial about being an alcoholic.

  4. My mother and I were always very close, even throughout my drinking years. Since she died in August (4 months ago), I have not shed a tear. I don't know why.

  5. I have always been anal-retentive.

  6. I'm afraid of horses and snakes.

  7. I sucked my thumb until I was about 10 years old.

  8. When I wrecked my Mom's car at the age of 16, I lied and said I swerved to avoid a dog. Of course, I had been drinking.

  9. I had the hots for a camp counsellor. At church camp. I was 14. He was grown.

  10. I almost became a professional baseball umpire, but my instructors said I was too nice to be an umpire.

Always hold your head up, but be careful to keep your nose at a friendly level.

Nice to know more about you. I didn't cry when my mom died 12 years ago, nor to this day over her. I don't know why either. jeNN

There was a time in my early 20's I would have made a damn good professional umpire!

I was never in denial about being an alcoholic...

Good list Dave. I see quite a few similarities: love of our mothers, not being a good poker player, having the hots for camp councilor. Thanks for sharing.

dear dAAve,

thanks for the tidbits about yourself in the questions. Very honest and insightful. It's always a pleasure to get to know you better.

Happy Saturday. Love you.

You've always been "anal-whaaa"?

Maybe you should borrow Scott W.s new shirt to smother out the flames on your pants.
