Saturday Seven (7 Random Facts About Me)


1. I have actually met two U.S. Presidents: Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan. Unfortunately, I didn't vote for either one of them.

2. Before I met my wife, there was another girl that I asked to marry me and she told me "No". Today, she has yet to marry and she has told me that now she wishes she had taken me up on my offer. Unfortunately for her, even if I was single now, I doubt that I would marry her. I'm just so past that moment with her.

3. As a small child, I often dreamed that one day I would rule the world.

4. When I was in the 5th grade, a love note that I wrote to a girl in my class was intercepted. It read... "If Hitler fell in love, then why my dear can't we?" My Jewish teacher didn't find it at all amusing but, she told my grandmother (who was mortified) that I had an "interesting imagination" and that it was an indication that I had some kind of untapped talent. After all these years, I'm still trying to figure out what that talent is...

5. I was stopped by the police three times in one day on the same street because I fit the description of someone who was snatching purses. They eventually caught the suspect, who was about an inch shorter and outweighed me by a good 20 pounds but, he was an African-American male about my age.

6. Pancakes is my favorite breakfast food.

7. When I first met my wife, the first thing I noticed about her was her big pretty eyes. You thought I was going to say something else, didn't you? Shame on you!

Have a great weekend, everybody!

My hubby noticed my big pretty eyes first, too! Then something else next, I'm sure. But, he won't admit to that. I think he says my voice came in second. Yeah, right.... You boys are all very similar! : ) I enjoyed the post today very much! Couldn't bring myself to steal from you two Saturday's in a row, so my Saturday post is a little adventure you'll have to stop by and check out. Have a great day!

I'm amazed at #4...out of all the things to say in a love note, you wrote that...I think your talent is writing, and since you have a great imagination, I think you should look into script writing...just a thought.

Raven said...
