Second Base

"Have you ever kissed a boy on the mouth? Have you ever been felt up? Over the bra, under the blouse, shoes off...hoping to God your parents don't walk in? Over the panties, no bra, blouse unbuttoned, Calvin's in a ball on the front seat past eleven on a school night?" - Bender to Claire in The Breakfast Club

You and I have been together for nearly a month now and I think it's time we take this thing to second base. Here are ten things about me that you don't know:


  1. I am enrolled as a bone marrow donor and have been for about 15 years. I even got called once to go to the next round of testing. Unfortunately, I wasn't a close enough match.

  2. Although I am no cook, I make great chicken soup from scratch. Despite being half Italian, I can't make sauce (gravy) to save my soul.

  3. After next Sunday, I will have been to see Jimmy Buffet in concert each year for the past 10 years.

  4. I am terrified of bugs.

  5. I have claustrophobia, not so much that I can't get on an elevator but if I'm crowded in, I'll have little palpatations. I take the stairs when I can.

  6. I can touch my nose with my tongue.

  7. I am the second girl in a family of three girls and one boy.

  8. I was involved in an accident while test driving a 1996 VW Jetta. (I decided against buying the car.)

  9. I have a very good eye for color and design, that I inherited from my father, a contractor. At the time of his death in January, I hadn't spoken to him in about four years.

  10. I am a Trivial Pursuit savant. I remember the most ridiculous details about people, places, and events but frequently forget where my keys and cell phone are.


And now, Helena, it's time to return the favor.

Did I tell you I am going to be at the Buffet concert too? This will be my second time. Hmmm...second time...second base...I sense a theme here.

I can touch my tongue to my nose too :)
And tie a cherry stem in a knot with my tongue. Absolutely useless skills, but great party tricks

Re #1: What a wonderful and generous thing to do.

Re #10: You are just like my husband, then. I refuse to play Trivial Pursuit with him anymore. It's too depressing. It makes me feel like I have Alzheimer's disease.
