Okay, so my friend Aimee tagged me. I think she like tagged me a week or so ago, and I just now read it. Whoops, my bad! Here goes:
#1 I'm allergic to cockroaches. Don't even ask how, but when I went to the allergist and they did their thang, cockroaches came up on my list, my very long list, of things I'm allergic to. So, from that point on, I stopped eating roaches. This still confuses me...
#2 I froze a goldfish once, and it survived! A long time ago, when I was in my "fish phase" of life, I bought a little goldfish one day. I'd heard that certain types of frogs and goldfish could survive being frozen and then thawed. So, I snuck the little critter into my parents freezer in the garage and froze it overnight. When it fully thawed out, it was swimming around like nothing had happened. It still amazes me! My aunt Cindy can attest to this. The little fishies we had in the pond out front were just fine after we had a couple of hard freezes a couple of winter's ago. ;)
#3 I once had a booger collection. I didn't hide it; as a matter of fact I was proud of my collection. As you walked into my bedroom, it was about three steps forward, and one step to the right, and whammo, my collection! And might I add, I had quite the variety. Sorry if this grosses you out. Oh, and let me add that I was very young when I did this, I was probably about 6 or 7 years old.
#4 I DETEST the sound that is made when someone is eating. This is definitely top on my list of pet peeves. It's seriously so yucky to me. Don't even get me starting on chips, especially Fritos. For some reason the combination of someone crunching down on a bag of Fritos mixed in with the aroma of it, makes me want to puke. Luckily, if I'm eating, I can't hear the other person eating beside me. Background noise is also helpful.
#5 I love pulling pranks on people. It brings me such joy! These days, it's my co-workers that get the brunt of it. I just do stupid things, like taking their chairs and moving them into the vault, unplugging everything at someones station, taping down the phone lever and then calling them, completely rearranging items on a desk, linking ALL of someone's paperclips together, and putting someone's stamp in a mold of jello (that one was an overnighter). My favorite so far has to be when I left a message for my co-worker(s) to call back a member who'd had a question regarding a payment that they had supposedly done on their account. I gave them the number to call, but the number was in fact to a funeral home. My unsuspecting co-workers were so very politely asking to speak with Myra Maines. Good times!
I'm going to tag Rachel, Melissa, and Cindy!
