More Countryfolk Trivia...

Dear, sweet Stace of Tattered'nTorn Prims tagged me to tell ya five things about myself. Are ya ready????

1. When I was a baby, I never crawled like a normal baby. (Gee, who would have thought?) I used to sit like an Indian (sorry for my political incorrectness) and scoot around on my butt. To this day, I still like to sit that way but I don't move quite as fast.

2. When I was 6, our family was at my uncle's (Polish) weddin'. I kept complainin' to mama I didn't feel good and that I had a real bad belly ache.
Since she thinks everyone is a hypochondriac; she kept tellin' me I was fine and to "Go do the polka with your cousin Tracy."
Well later that day, daddy took me to the E.R. and I had to have an emergency appendectomy. So now its a standard joke when anyone tells me they're sick, I tell them to "Go do the polka with your cousin Tracy."

3. I spent my 7th birthday in the hospital for that same appendectomy.

4. When I was young'un, I used to play my 45 record "Lime In The Coconut" on 78 speed and lip sync the song. I always made mama and daddy laugh. (For you young'uns, playin' a 45 record on 78 speed sounds like Alvin and the Chipmunks)

5. I have a couple of tattoos. (But I didn't get those as a young'un) My mama, my sister and I wanted to do somethin' special one year to celebrate my 35th, sis's 40th and mama's 60th birthday.
