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??
