Believe It Or Not!

Nine Things About Yourself:

Let’s see if I can cover some new ground here.  What are nine facts about me I have not yet mentioned and am willing to do so right here in front of God and everybody?

I do not eat jam or jelly.  Despite my raging sweet tooth, both are too sweet for me.

I don’t drink coffee.  I know, total heresy for a writer, yes?  I don’t eat anything mocha-flavored either.

I once owned fourteen cats.  So you see, I’ve already won my Crazy Cat Lady spurs.

According to family legend, on my mother’s side I’m descended from Sir Francis Drake and Daniel Boone, and on my father’s side from Neville Chamberlain.

When I was born, I had a full head of black hair.  It later fell out, to be replaced by light brown curls.  In my preschool days I looked like a more Germanic version of Shirley Temple.

I have no tattoos.  I do not anticipate ever getting one.  When I was in elementary school, I had to undergo a series of allergy shots that went on for over a year.  I also have a few scars from badly set IVs and two Heprin locks.  I’ve had all I want to do with needles.

I keep the thank-you notes people send me because it’s nice to have the tangible reminders of times when I’ve made people happy.

For the astrology buffs out there, I am Capricorn Sun, Pisces Moon, and Leo rising.  So who did I marry?  An Air sign, Gemini.  In Chinese Astrology, I’m a Wood Snake.

I no longer have my birthmark.  It was surgically removed when I was ten years old.
