Five weird things about me.

posted 12/15/05 (edited Wednesday, Dec 14, 2005 17:23)

I’ve been tagged twice on this now. So I guess I should do something about it.

1) I can only drive with my right foot bare. That’s how I learned and that’s why I had to give up my job as a getaway driver. We were always getting caught outside the bank while I undid my boot laces.

2) I didn’t learn to drive until I was 39.

3) Even though I’m no longer a poor writer I find it impossible to break the mindset of my twenties when I had no money. So I’ll often find myself plotting to avoid a two dollar train fare when I’ve got hundreds of bucks in my wallet. Or I’ll contemplate stealing a whole tray of tea bags from the private airport lounge to which I pay extortionate membership fees without a second thought.

4) I have an infantile need to be liked by strangers.

5) And I collect hotel soap.

Return…

hotel soap is good for handing to randoms who crash at your place so you avoid little black hairs of unknown origin finding their way onto you personal bar of soap 😉

Those airport lounges are great. Its always a challenge to see how many bloody marys you can finish before ‘Final Call’ comes up on your flight number.

Go number four!

Me too.

John, you are supernormal, although number one is hard to do in cold weather..

No mention of the vestigial tail?

Barefoot driving? With or without a sock? And why did you learn to drive without shoes?

From Birmo on 12/16/05

What can i say, it was the deep north.

From AllanLeroy on 12/17/05

You know, In Texas they used to add on to your ticket cost if they pulled you over and found that you were barefooted. THat would be a interesting, “Officer, I was only half bare footed…” You are a nut, but a good chap.

AllanLeroy – Well, compared to you guys we’re the Deep South, so you Northern Yankees 🙂 will just need to try and understand our rustic ways.

My sister drives without shoes too. I need them on though, or I can’t reach the pedals. People pay me out for only having an automatic license, but they underestimate how difficult it can be to control both the car AND the GoGo Gadget Leg Extensions at the same time.

Hi Birmo, and all Cheeseburgers,

“From alcones1 on 12/15/05

It always amazes me when I see place kickers in the NFL, especially in the dead of winter in frigid climes like Green Bay, having a barefoot kicking style. OUCH! It makes my foot hurt to think about it.

Happy Xmas, Birmo, and everyone here, and a safe and prosperous ’06. And more books; sorry for lack of decision-making, but I am excited at the thoughts of all your new writing ideas.

And can I please mention my 12-2 Seattle Seahawks? As a devoted fan, I’m thrilled at being on the verge of securing home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, but ever mindful we haven’t won a playoff game for 21 years, and if we don’t (at least) make the NFC Championship game, ‘twil all be for naught.
