How much more could you possibly want to know about MeMe?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with ADT Real Estate

I was just commenting on another post the other day about how I actually MeMe'd someone once who had just been MeMe'd a few weeks before. It was quite by accident and the member I tagged was nice enough about it. I was wondering how many times it has happened that someone has been MeMe'd two days in a row. Then it happened to me.

I received an e-mail from Sarah Eubanks on Monday that I had been MeMe'd by her. It had been three months, so I figured it was about time. I mean, a lot changes in three months, right? OK, not that much. I came up with 5 things about myself for that post, which took a bit of effort. You can check them out here.  I was writing a follow-up post to that MeMe yesterday about the first time God had spoken to me when I got an e-mail from Karen Monsour telling me that she had MeMe'd me. Now I don't want to say no, being a Pleaser, so here I go again.

I got my varsity letter in tennisI received a Varsity letter in high school for tennis, where I was 4th seed on our tennis team. I actually went to Berlin and played in a tennis championship. This was before the wall came down, so it was an exciting adventure for me. In my twenties, I played almost every day. I haven't played tennis in a few years now, but I have been thinking of taking it back up. I'm not nearly as fit as I was back then, so that might take some serious effort. Wish me luck with that!

 

I turn 40 on Christmas EveI will be 40 years old on Cristmas Eve. I'm not at all excited about that. Where'd the last 20 years go? LOL People always ask me if it stunk having my birthday so close to Christmas while I was growing up. I grew up so poor, that it really didn't matter much if I got a combo gift. I was happy to get anything I got.

 

I swallowed gasoline!!I once swallowed gasoline. I was siphoning gas out of our car for the lawn mower when I was about 12 years old. My brother was holding the hose and was supposed to tell me when he felt the gas come out of the tank. Not the best plan, as I was sucking away on this hose and then...yep, the next thing I knew I had a mouthful of gas and, purely by instinct, I swallowed it. I really thought I was going to die for the rest of the day. I was burping gas for hours. I'm actually getting nauseous thinking about it again. I wish I had that iron stomach back!!

How do I follow that? Well, let me see. Since I was a child, I have wanted to be a missionary. I don't know if that was due more to the mystery of going to a foreign country as a child, but it has become a much more real desire for me as an adult. My church goes to Brazil on a regular basis and I am hoping to go with them next year.

I can touch my nose with my tongueFinally, for my coup de etat, can I have a drumroll please? I can touch my nose with my tongue!!! Yes, folks, I am a multi-talented individual!!! I imagine it's a combination of a big nose and a lot of practice, but I can indeed touch my nose with my tongue. Why would I practice such a thing? Well, we all have to have our own unique talents, right?

Hey, I did mention in my last MeMe that I am crazy!! Did you expect any less from me? Let's just hope I don't get MeMe'd tomorrow!! LOL Well, that's it for this MeMe. Thanks again for taking the time to read. Now, I have to pick three other victims again? Ok...here they are...

 

Lisa Ryan was another person I met briefly at the Active Rain get together last week. She made a very nice comment to me and posted a picture of me on that post that made me look like I was grimacing or something. I'm really not a photogenic person, as that photo proves. This is her payback!! LOL

Hugh Krone writes some great Christian posts. I know a few things about him from his posts, but maybe he can share some things we don't know.

Al Harb was just remarking about how he was so glad that he didn't get tagged by me in my last MeMe, which made me think that I needed to tag him if I ever got tagged again. Who would have thought that it would have happened so soon? Gotcha Al.

Thanks again all. Until next time....God Bless you all!!

Andrew, another good MeMe!  I'm not sure that I would have admitted to the touching your nose with your tongue thing.  Hopefully your comment section doesn't turn into a free for all :)

I just got tagged again for the second time in 3 days...I know how you feel!!

Lisa,

Thanks, the way I see it, people just need to deal with it. LOL Good luck with your new MeMe. If I get tagged again this week, I don't know what I'll say.

Robert,

Ya think? We'll see. Happy holidays to you too.

Karen,

It's all your fault!! Yeah, they had to keep me away from all open flames for a while.

Monika,

I'll have to get some video. Maybe it'll be my 15 seconds of fame on Youtube. Who knows?

Elizabeth,

If I get tagged again, I'll have to dig out some stuff that nobody wants to see. Trust me!!! You can tell me, when you see that pic, if I look like I'm grimacing or something. It ain't pretty!!

Hi Andrew,
I used to play tennis too but haven't in several years.  I would love to take it up again........one of these days.

Swallowed gasoline, and you didn't die--I thought it was poison.   Interesting.

Touch your nose with your tongue?  Ok, I'm not going to go there.

Cynthia,

Yeah, a whole mouthful, and I didn't die. It's strange, but I never really thought it'd kill me. Now, too much greasy food and the heartburn wipes me out. It's still better than gas burps. LOL

The tongue thing's real. My kids get a kick out of it. ;-P

Andrew... that tongue thing...I bet your wife is happy....the tongue...then again that you didn't get blown up by the gas attack!!!! LOL...

I'm still laughing about the tongue thing...is it hereditory?

A missionary...now I'm really confused....

Have a great Holiday!

I'm going back to PA....

Karen,

My wife is very pleased..about me surviving the gas swallowing incident. I don't have any idea if the tongue thing is hereditary. As far as I know, I'm the only one in the family with the talent.

A missionary...you know. Most of the time you travel to other countries and spread the gospel to people who have very often never heard of Jesus. I can't imagine anything more rewarding, can you?

Have a very merry Christmas!!

Al,

I bet you thought you were safe when I didn't tag you the first time. Who would have thought that I'd get tagged two days in a row? Anyway, I look forward to seeing you have some fun with your MeMe this time.

God Bless you!!

Thanks so much Andrew, I'm both frantic and flattered.  My meme will have to wait until after Christmas!

Your meme will be a hard act to follow, you gasoline guzzling, tongue-to-nose toucher, you!!

PS~ can I help it if you were wearing a lamp shade on your head?  I just post pictures, I don't edit them, LOL

Lisa,

I guess we'll have to wait to see your MeMe then.

I can't blame you for the photo. I can't imagine what happened that I ended up with a grimace and a lamp shade on my head, but there it is.

Have a merry Christmas!!!
