The Running Man gets MeMe'd

By
Real Estate Agent with Real Estate

My run yesterday must have been a little slow because I got Tagged three times.  I first hit came while I was out running from Thesa Chambers, next George Souto gave me a poke and since I wasn't moving fast enough the fitness queen Suzanne Sands gave me a jab.

1 - I grew up in West Haven as a poor boy, just never realized it until after high school graduation.

2 - During childhood we stayed close to home, never ate at restaurants or traveled by plane or train.  My first introduction to Chinese Food & Tacos happened after I was married, as did my first flight or train to the city.

3 - Speaking of married it has been many years.  We married as kids and have three boys, 28, 26 & 15.  The youngest I jokingly refer to as my wife's mid-life crisis & attempt for a girl.  The perception of mid-life changes, guess it was the trauma of turning 30.

4 - I was born HOT... not ladies man hot but Hot Headed and Hot Blooded.  Age has mellowed me but a little piece of the Angry Young Man will always exist.

5 - It may not be evident here but I am a man of few words. I shy away from public attention and have never been outgoing.  Part of my logic selecting real estate as my second career was to challenge myself.

My three victims are Sandi BaumanBeth Bastian & Vicki Hibbert

Chris... He's easy to spot on the lacrosse field... hair hanging out of the helmet.... but they all go thru that phase

Suzanne... Figured I better move fast... I also have a tendancy to over analyze things so this could have been a week long project.

Dan--It is funny how many backgrounds have some overlap in this industry. I too was born into a lower income bracket family and did not go on a plane until I had graduated from college. And being Irish, I understand that hair-triggered temper as there were many in my family with that feature...It does mellow. Loved the picture...and thanks for sharing!

Keith... That's me - Right to the point.

Danny...I slow down to smell the roses.

Teri...Hair-Trigger captures it, I used to say Explosive but now I consider myself Mr.Mellow.  Suppose I can pack away a few beers also but fortunately never had the disease.

Hi, Dan!  Very nice job!  I'm shy, too.  I made myself join the drama club in high school to make myself get over it.  Well, I'm not "over it" but I'm better at making myself do what's best for me.  I've got that temper, too, and passed it to Little One.  (Thankfully writing makes me happy!)

Sarah... I think shyness fades with age but I still don't effectively work a room or just swoop in on people when I see an opportunity.  Just don't have that vulture mentality.

George... Not really hot headed anymore but my wife brainwashed me into thinking I am.

This MeMe thing is cool!  Thanks for stopping by my blog. 

I loved the part about you not eating out or going on a train or plane until you were grown.  My son thinks he's entitled to everything and I feel like a bad parent for not giving in to him but in reality, What the hell is he thinking?!!!!  LOL! 

Probably my fault for spoiling him when he was little.  Now look at what I've got to deal with.
