    I love cabbage raw.
    The smell of it cooked turns my stomach.
    Same with spinach.

    Some completely inane facts about me.

    After a sudden death in the family a while ago I feel a nagging worry about how death sneaks up on you.. you don't know where you don't know when. One minute you are here the next not.. I think about when will my time be. 😔

    Same here. I was affected seeing so much sudden death in combat, that I was just waiting for my turn. It never came...Now, after getting shot 10 years ago, and complications in my open heart surgery 2 years ago, I see the end of the tunnel. I feel like I have cheated death too many times and my luck is running out. But since it is inevitable, I try to focus on living, rather than dying....

    I worked for my ex for about 10yrs,
    I managed the accounts payable and receivables.
    I flunked math in school.
    I was a failure at balancing the checkbook.
    Somehow I kept track of millions of dollars in invoices.
    I was a wreck, cried all the way to the office every morning.
    When we split and he retired me he had a CPA audit the books.
    I had neglected to bill out $800,000. to our investors over the years for several different wells.
    Thank goodness it wasn’t the other way around.
    My ex used that as an example of my incompetence to several people.
    I never will forget how I felt.
    He never admitted it was mean.
    That attitude of his is one of the reasons I can’t live with him.

    I feel this so much right now. Except the ex part. And he's an *kitten*, btw. I don't like him.

    I floss & brush my toofeses after lunch. I hate flossing and one way I get myself to do it regularly is by doing it at work.

    I really only dance in the kitchen these days. Lately I’ve been trying to learn how to make my cheeks clap.

    Glad you asked? 😄

    Don't care one way or the other about cabbage (probably because I've never been served cooked cabbage so have no frame of reference) but I very much enjoy raw spinach on salads and sandwiches, while cooked is...just, no.

    My biological mother was only one year older than me when she died from COPD.
    Even though I quit smoking 11yrs ago and don’t have the disease,
    I can’t help but have a little bit of worry in the deep recesses of my mind.

    Same here. My dad was 48 when he had a stroke with high cholesterol. I’m 48 with high cholesterol. I’m terrified!

    Try not to worry too much. 💗
    Get that cholesterol down, you can do it! 🙂

    All my grandparents lived into their 90's, one almost cracking 100. I've got a goal, now.

    I sneaked reads of inappropriate novels when I was a kid & Im mostly ok.

    I don’t remember what age I was when I read a romance novel laying around my house but when it got to the first naughty scene… I threw that thing away from me and into the closet. I did go back for it though but I was just too pure. 🥲

    I needed to add to these posts😂 I was 13ish and was babysitting and picked up a book off coffee table...in hindsight there were some other sketchy things with this situation 😬

    My tween years were peppered with VC Andrews and books about suicide.

    The first novel I read that wasn’t for school but for my own enjoyment was “Rebecca”
    by Daphne du Maurier.
    I was 12 in 6th grade.

    No wonder I grew up with a ridiculously romantic idea of masculinity and love. 🙄

    I loved that book. I had no idea what it was about when I began reading it. I didn’t know what a Gothic novel was or anything so the whole thing took me by surprise

    When I was very young, I never spoke at first, not even just trying out words. My mother worried I was developmentally delayed, until one day I spoke an entire sentence (three words, but still). Guess I just didn't want to speak until I had something to say.

    When I was in grade school (except grade 1,2 in Spain, Greece)we lived on a small creek.
    I spent almost all my outdoor fun down in the creek.
    My friends and I would dam it up to make a pool.
    We’d catch crawdads, see who could find the biggest one.
    Built forts, so many forts!
    That was so much fun.
    Later on when I was older, that’s where I’d sneak a cigarette.
    After it was paved, I drove my car down into it, drove for miles. 🤯
    I’m so thankful that creek was there.
    😂
    I was crazy
