Three Weird Things


Carole and Kat have left Think Write Thursday behind for Three on Thursday - every week, write about three things.  No other requirements.  You realize that this is A LIST, right?  And Lists R Me.  So today I shall share Three Weird Things About Me.  (I can hear you saying, "Only 3?" hahahahaha)

Weird Thing One

My belly button is fake.  No I am not an alien.  Back when I had a mastectomy, I also had breast reconstruction, using the TRAM flap method.  (Now I'll bet you wish you hadn't read THAT.)  Anyway, my plastic surgeon created a fake belly button so that I would look normal.  (Yeah, I know.)  So when I asked him where my original belly button went, he said it was somewhere in my upper chest.  Which caused me to ask him if when I got a cold and coughed, my reconstructed breast would move on its own.  Which caused him to nearly pass out laughing.

Weird Thing Two

I did not graduate from high school, but I have a Master's degree.  At the beginning of my senior year, I got pneumonia, and missed the first six weeks of school.  Even though I only needed two more credits to graduate (one more for state requirements), I was told that I couldn't return, and would have to wait until the next fall to do my senior year.  At this point, I had already been admitted to college at two places.  I contacted each of them, and they said no big deal.  So I worked and saved money the rest of the school year and started college the next fall.  Not being someone into the high school experience, I was not upset to miss things like the prom and such.

Weird Thing Three

I have won four different sound-alike contests for the "Mr Ed" theme song.  As you know, "Mr Ed" is my fave show EVER.  I know all of the words to the theme song, and at the end where Mr Ed sings the last line,  I have won four sound-alike contests for that.  Two of them were against people who others swore I would not be able to defeat.  Pffft.

How's that for a list??

Well, those are some interesting tidbits to know!

I couldn't begin to write a list about myself that was half as interesting as the things you've shared. I wouldn't have guessed that there were any Mr. Ed sound-alike contests and you've won four. Stay weird!

A horse is a horse, of course, of course. And no one can talk to a horse, of course. That is, of course,unless the horse is the famous Mr. Ed.


Wil-burrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

So, the TRAM is also like having a tummy tuck as well? At least there was a little upside to such a lousy situation, huh?

Gosh, I sure hope you put your Mr. Ed Credentials on your resume someplace. I think it would be a wonderful part of any interview, for sure.

Amazing tidbits!

I can't believe your high school basically wrote you off for the year. I doubt (and sincerely hope) that wouldn't happen today. I'm thrilled that you went to college and got your Masters degree.

Susan Barclay said...

Pretty amazing list!

Vera said...

Ha! You are weird and that is wonderful (cuz I'm weird too...in different ways). And now Dee's comment has me hearing Wilburrrrrrrr in my head. It's going to be a great day at work - when someone annoys me I'll just come out with the Mr. Ed song.

Hope you and The Tim have a great weekend (weather should be perfect!!).

Wow, those were some weird things!! I would have never been able to guess any of them, not in a million years.

what a curious list of weirds that I did not know about you. I doubt anyone could go to college now without the diploma from High school....Cool that you could do that though!
