5 Things About Me

What a week for memes! This is the third one I've been tagged for, and I hadn't even gotten to the second yet. This is a quickie, so I'll do it first. It's by way of Chicken Spaghetti, and was supposed to be a reflection of your last year's blog posts. I haven't been blogging more than a few months, so I'll just do the traditional 5 interesting things about me.

1. I can sight read Braille. My mom's partner was in a car accident in 1990, when I was in high school, and was blinded. As she learned grade one braille, so did I.

2. I used to be in the colorguard and winterguard in high school. I twirled flag, rifle and saber, and was captain the last few years.

3. I'm a third generation teacher. My mom teaches special education at the school I work in, and her uncle taught English, either college or high school, I'm not sure which.

4. Doug and I are high school sweethearts. We started dating in junior year in high school, had lockers next to each other alphabetically, and kept up a long distance relationship between the Army and college. We've been together 16 years now, married for 10.

5. I used to be fairly fluent in French. I took French class from 7th grade through college. I went to college at SUNY Plattsburgh, about 50 minutes away from Montreal. My proudest moment was when we were up there for a band performance, and a native asked me (in French) what was going on. Dingbat that I am, I naturally answered in English! Luckily, she was bilingual. My saddest moment was in a hotel pool in Canada, when some 8 year olds corrected my French grammar.

I'm not tagging anyone for this, but if you end up doing it in your blog, let me know here in the comments!

Thanks for responding to the meme. That's cool about the Braille. And many of my high-school friends were rifle girls. I love high school bands.
