I don’t know how much more random stuff I can share about myself, but here we go…

1. If I wear a pair of socks bowling, I won’t wear them again. I know they “sanitize” the rented shoes, but I can’t get myself to wear the socks again, no matter how much bleach and boiling water I use to wash them. Something about knowing that my socks have touched other people’s foot germs…bleh.

2. I don’t know how to play checkers. I can play chess with the best of them, but checkers is beyond my comprehension for some reason.

3. I broke my nose when I was 7 jumping double dutch. My shoelace got caught up in the rope and then my ankles got caught up and I hit the ground face first.

4. I’ve never eaten a corndog, and I don’t plan on it. How in the name of Pete do you expect me to eat a hotdog surrounded by cornbread? I like cornbread, I like hotdogs, but the two together just doesn’t compute for me.

5. I was a ski instructor during winter break one season. I only saw 3 other black folk the entire time, but it was probably the most fun I’ve had in cold weather.

6. I’m a makeup junkie. I probably have about $2000 worth of products in my vanity, but I hardly ever wear it. I’m just too lazy in the morning to bother, but drop me in Sephora and I’m happy.

7. I made a quilt from pieces of fabric that once belonged to the people I miss and love the most. I’ll keep adding to it as long as I can, and I hope to pass it to my kids. It has a piece of my grandpa’s old coveralls, my grandma’s flannel nightie, my great aunt’s driving glove, my other grandmother’s apron, my other grandpa’s workshirt, the shirt my dad was wearing when he became an American citizen, my mom’s prom gown, my baby blanket, all of my siblings’ baby blankets, and now a piece of D’s army fatigues that I just added. It may not look like much, but I’m so proud of that quilt. I keep it tucked in our linen closet in archival paper cuz some of the fabric is so old.

I’m not going to tag anyone specific. If you want to play along, consider yourself tagged!

  1. chess but not checkers???? that is special. lol. sephora is heaven. corndogs are nasty. never been skiing but the thought intrigues me. both of my grandmothers made patchwork quilts. love them.

  2. Never thought about the socks and bowling shoes. I’ve seen people not wearing socks. Now that’s nasty.

    Chess is actually better than checkers to me.

    You never had a fair corndog? Those are the best corndogs.

  3. 5. I was a ski instructor during winter break one season. I only saw 3 other black folk the entire time, but it was probably the most fun I’ve had in cold weather.

    Yeah, what is up with that? Don’t black people like to ski? I rarely see any black people on the slopes.
