Eight things about me

As a part of a tag-team game, I am supposed to list eight unique things about myself…oh, only eight?!

1. I am from a town with a state mental institution on the main drag. This fact used to horrify me. Now, my novels are set in the same town.

2. My skull has a divot. It is solid; not like my brain will ooze out. It is just not smooth and rounded. I was quite the rage in my college anatomy classes. I’ve always maintained that my brain was so huge; it caused my skull to become malformed.

3. I can do a killer chicken imitation. When I graduated from high school, my classmates made me cackle during the ceremony. They threatened to tie me to my chair if I didn’t.

4. I have deep twin dimples; one of the reasons I like to smile so often.

5. When I was a child, I had an imaginary friend who lived in a skate.

6. I loved cats so much when I was little (still do), I would crawl under houses, cars, or anyplace to play with one. I tamed more than one wild kitten, too.

7. I love to fish, but I don’t like to either touch the bait or the fish. As long as someone is sucker enough to do these tasks for me, I will fish until the cows come home.

8. I love animals, but horses seem to know I fear them. They take one look at me and scrub me off on the nearest tree on the way home to the barn. Cowgirl, I am not.

I have more, of course…

Tired of the cholesterol issue? Me, too.

I have to be the stupidest human on earth. I had my annual check-up with blood work around the holidays. Is it a surprise that my cholesterol is high? Did I eat everything bad in sight? Um...yes.

Good thing I can write. Seems I have a problem with eating; at least, correctly.

What if...

one day, the medical community discovers that elevated cholesterol levels are some kind of protective device? Will we all be encouraged to eat a cheeseburger and biggie fries each day?

Gee...hope I live to see the day...
