Tag, I'm it!

It's been a long time since I was tagged for a meme.

Stacie tagged me for this one. Here are the rules:

  1. Link to the person who “tagged” you.
  2. Post the rules on your blog.
  3. Write six random things about yourself.
  4. Tag six people at the end of your post.
  5. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
  6. Let the tagger know your entry is up.

So, six random things...
  1. I learned how to slow dance from a priest.*
  2. In my 30s.**
  3. I still have my tonsils.***
  4. My favorite ice cream is DQ soft serve vanilla.
  5. I almost got expelled from college for being a communist.****
  6. I did get suspended from first or second grade for fighting - off school grounds, trying to stop a bully from beating up a girl in one of the remedial classes. *****
I tag: jennifred, jdub, fullfaun, gwensmom, tvini & lilfish. Don't feel like you HAVE to do it, but it could be fun!


*Episcopal.
**Told you I was a late bloomer.
***Never been in the hospital.
****I'm not.
*****My dad was so proud. As usual, the threat came the day before: "I'm going to get you, tomorrow after school." I usually walked to and from school with this girl and asked my dad what to do. He said something like "the right thing." So, I did. The bully's coat was torn in the process and that's what the suspension was over. Her parents wanted my dad to buy her a new coat. Dad said he wasn't paying for a new coat for a bully, and that they could suspend me for doing their job if they wanted. I was back in class the same day.
