So you don't like the mushrooms? How about secrets???

Here's a random picture of my siblings and myself at my daughter's wedding in Logan. We're a motley crew. If you look really closely you can see the spirit faces of our mom and dad in the bricks because they were there too. John, Norma, and Nancy. We look pretty happy, huh?

Here are twenty things that may surprise you about me even if you think you know me:

1. I usually read between 15 and 20 books at a time.

2. I have NOT read past the third Harry Potter book--go ahead, kick me.

3. I have lost a toenail every summer for the last 6 years due to hiking extravaganza gone wild.

4. I don't drink milk.

5. I've only been REALLY lost once.

6. I feel about 16 inside. The graying temples and neck thing REALLY throw me off!

7. I have a recurring dream and wouldn't you like to know what it is????

8. I have been in love 6 times.

9. Once I slammed my glasses down into the bathtub because I was mad. Then I told my mom they "fell off my nose." Do you think they have internet in heaven so I can finally settle this with my mom?

10. Once I backed our Subaru into a tree but I told my husband, "Wow, I don't know WHERE that dent came from."

11. I have never ever cheated but as just admitted (#'s 9 and 10) I have lied.

12. I was a chronic hitchhiker one summer in my Jackson Hole days. During one of those escapades I rode in a car for about 3 hours seated between two guys from New Mexico, and I think that it was probably marijuana that I passed back and forth to them. Naiive. Dumb. Lucky to still be alive. Fun?........

13. After all this time I STILL can't do my hair.

14. I've watched Anne of Green Gables probably 62 times, and I still cry when Gilbert touches Anne's hair and calls her "Carrots".

15. A good percentage of the gifts I give originate at thrift stores, but I make sure they are impecably imperceptable as such.

16. I sang "You Can't Get a Man With a Gun" at the top of my lungs when I was on the riding lawn mower the other night.

17. I really want some chickens.

18. When I'm all alone, I waste vast vast amounts of time and then feel shabbily about it.

19. I will walk across huge cities for a perfect macaroon.

20. In my previous life I lived in Manhattan. I think I made jewelry down in Soho, but that part is still unclear. Now I'm working out some bad Karma in seventh grade.

Actually I was thinking of the time I walked all over NY looking for a macaroon I'd had somewhere down there. I had the whole day to myself and finding that macaroon seemed awfully important. That was the day they buried JFK Jr. and I chanced upon the memorial outside his apartment. Remember that?

Mom, I feel like I just found out more about you by reading this, than in the last 10 years. In love 6 times? The Tetons don't count. Do tell.

Hello oh son of my heart! I didn't know you read my blog. We need to take a road trip (yeah right, we'd have to sell a lung to afford that) and I'll spill all!

I knew most of those things. I guess being your favorite (and only) daughter, I am privy to such things about you, my mother.

Jill said...

What a great picture! I love reading your blog.

Now you've gone and burst my bubble. I thought the Pink Rose had the perfect macaroon and you're telling me that there's a better one in NYC. You've been holding out on me.
