Tag: Three Things You Didn’t Know About Me!

(This is a game from the Good Girl Lit blog. So fun.)

1) I am hopelessly addicted to Mountain Dew. This is an embarrassing addiction, not a cool one like being addicted to coffee or something. Seriously, it stems from junior high! Please do NOT lecture me about this; I am fully aware that I am polluting my body. But I can’t help it!

2) One of my prized possessions is a postcard from President Ronald Reagan. He was shot when I was in lower elementary school and it is the first thing I remember watching on TV and understanding that it was important to the whole world. I sent him a hand-made get-well card and he sent me the sweetest bulk-rate, rubber-stamped post card you have ever seen. I felt so connected to the universe.

3) Someday I want a horse. I am not an outdoorsy person naturally, but this is one girlhood obsession I can’t get over. My daughter Claire does some horseback riding as therapy and I’m the one who has all the fun!

  1. No lectures here. I had cookie dough and deer sausage for lunch. And that’s such a lovely way to remember your Reagan postcard, feeling “connected to the universe”.

    Um, as a the Vice President of the Recovering Addicts of Diet Dr. Pepper Club, you’ll get no lecture from me. I LOVE SODA. So sue me. I’m American!

    The Reagan postcard thing almost made me tear up, and I’m obsessed with horses too.

    You still have the postcard?! I’m so relieved. I thought it had disappeared in one of my insane cleaning sprees when I purged the house of clutter that turned out to be treasure only weeks later. And, I have the picture of you and Carmen, I’m pretty sure.
