I’m so technically challenged that when Ample Sanity tagged me for a meme, I couldn’t find the original reference. But the clues lead me to think that to participate I can simply tell you 5 things about me that you don’t know. (this techy point doesn’t count, cause you already knew that).
But, what you probably didn’t know, and what I vowed to never confess is that ‘makin’ it up works’. I know it does. That is how I write when all I draw is a ‘blank’. That is how I got passing grades on school exams when I had no idea what the question was referring to. So I can do this meme, even though I didn’t find the protocol.
I like to think about simple, basic stuff. So now let’s go to something really basic about me that you probably didn’t know. I love potatoes, must have potatoes. At least every second day. I have not eaten, don’t call it a meal, it was just a snack without potatoes – baked potatoes, fried potatoes, big fluffy mashed, garlic, cajun, dilled, creamed or gravied. Please pass the potatoes. Now granted, maybe you already knew that, but what you didn’t know is that sometimes Hub calls me ‘Potato Head’ because I love potatoes.
Continuing…I sincerely believe I have told you everything about me you could possibly ever know because I have been blogging for four years in March. And, whatever I have failed to tell you, you no doubt picked up somewhere along the way between the lines. Because writing is like a fine rack of ribs. There’s more meat between the ribs than on the lines. Scantily buried emotions stagger between the lines, rather than on them. So what you don’t know, that I didn’t tell you, is how much I know about you, that you never told me.
And what you didn’t know is like Ample Sanity, I can’t tie a bow either. But that is no shame. Cause, I can do something better than tying a bow. I can wrap a boxed gift without taping the starting edge of the wrap to the gift.
But lastly, and most importantly, what you don’t know, and I know you don’t know, and I am so anxious to tell you is this.
