Friday Five

21.  In high school, when senior superlatives rolled around, I was voted “Nicest”  Awww!  It gave me a warm fuzzy feeling and still does.  I probably still have the certificate packed away in my old boxes.

22.  I worked at a summer camp for handicapped children and adults.  I’m not going to lie, it was hard, but it was also an incredible experience.  I am grateful that I had that opportunity.

23.  When I was 3 or 4 years old, I was on a radio commercial with my neighbor’s daughter.  It was for an aquarium and my line throughout the whole spot was “Sounds fishy to me!”

24.  I can say the alphabet backwards.  One of my 7th grade teachers required that we learn it (for dictionary etiquette), and if we didn’t we didn’t get into class.  It’s just one of those things that stuck with me apparently.  He also required us to learn 53 prepositions in alphabetical order.  He held competitions to see who could recite them the fastest.  To this day I don’t know what exactly a preposition is and if asked silently start in with, “aboard, about, above, across, after, against…”

25.  Growing up, I was a huge tom-boy.  I climbed trees, and played “king of the mountain” on huge snowbanks with the boys.  I loved fishing with my Dad, and wanted to go hunting with him.  He would never take me though.  I think he feared I’d get bored and scare the deer away, or I’d be traumatized if he shot something while with me.
