Six Things You Wish You Didn't Know?

So here's the deal...I've been tagged. Tagged? What in the world is that, you ask?

Well...I'm not totally sure, being the bloggy newbie that I am. I think it means that I have to do something embarrassing...like tell people my deepest, darkest secrets. Hmmm...I'm not sure I have any deep dark secrets left...but I'll give it a shot.

My new friend Mama Hen over at Clucks from the Henhouse has tagged me for a meme ...a what? But, it makes me feel special that someone thought of me anyway! At the end, I'm tagging some of you to play. I don't know which is harder...coming up with 6 things or coming up with 6 folks to tag...

Rules of Engagement:
1) Link to the person who tagged you.
2) Post the rules on your blog (copy and paste 1-6).
3) Write 6 random things about yourself (see below).
4) Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them.
5) Let each person know they have been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6) Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

So, here we go...Six things you wish you didn't know about Meg in Tally:

1- Hmmm...Wish you didn't know? I have NEVER, in 40-something years, heard my Daddy (who is 71) say a cuss word in anger. I have heard him 'repeat' what someone else said..using the word if it was necessary--but NEVER when he was talking to somebody in conversation or in anger. Here's what you don't want to know... I'm not proud that Bex will never be able to say that about her Mom... wish you didn't know that....

2- I got kicked out of FSU as a Junior! (Please don't tell Bex!!) Yep, I graduated Valedictorian of my high school class, finished community college on the Dean's List...but flunked out of FSU. When I transferred to FSU, my major was PARTY!!! (Yes, I've learned better now...)

3- Today I went for my first job interview in 21 YEARS! I think it went okay, but I was really nervous. The man interviewing me was very nice and personable. I think I would enjoy working for him. Wonder what he thought of me?

4- My most embarrassing moment? Right after graduating from high school I went to Canada with a group of Sheriff's Explorers. We were visiting in the Prime Minister's quarters. Picture dark, blood-red carpet--a butler serving little white cookies from a silver platter. We're on our best behavior. I start to eat my cookie, it breaks apart and falls to the floor...where I promptly step back ON it, thus grinding it into the perfect, crumb-free carpet. Everybody gasps! Then the Sheriff tells the Prime Minister -- "We can dress her up, we just can't take her anywhere!" {{{cringe}}} I truly thought my face was on fire.

5- Since bodily fluids seem to be one of the theme's on this meme... Not a secret-- I don't do vomit. When Bex gets sick she hollers for Daddy -- NOT Mom! Thank you, Lord for a smart child! I was a good mommy once when we were visiting with my brother's family. Five year old Bex woke up before daylight one morning and threw up every hour on the hour for the next five--Daddy was NOT there. So, I cleaned her and sheets five times in one morning. We couldn't wait to get on the road to get back to Daddy!

6- One more thing...hmmmm... My husband proposed on our SECOND date! I said "YES!" on the second date. Now, 26 years later...WHAT WAS I THINKING???? Not that I think I made a mistake--but on the 2nd date????
(Please don't tell Bex!)

So there you have it... Now for the new tag-ee's...


Kaluha Keeping Koala

Dance Mommy

Polish Man's Daughter

Mommy Jil

Princess Deb

All right. My first meme is complete. My friends may never speak to me again...but I'll try to make it up to them somehow... Now, go tell Mama Hen what she has wrought by tagging me!

Stay tuned. (Top 10 Tuesday will return next week.)

Glad you joined-in on the fun!
When you said you don't do vomit, I thought you said you don't vomit...which is true of me...wierd, huh?

MamaHenClucks said...

Oh I'm so glad you played! If I knew what a meme was, I would be the first to tell you, but being fairly new myself, let's go ask Fuschia!

Hi Meg,

I got here through the Blog Train...and I'm so glad I did!

I really enjoyed what I read today (the meme and others) and I would love to come back and read more!

Have a great day!

I guess it is true that you really don't know what you are asking for. While we're at the movies (yes, the movies for cryin' out loud!), I will mull over my six things.

Alright, Meg. You asked for it and you got it. My post is up.

mamajil said...

Hey thanks for tagging me...it was my first "meme" :)

Kelley said...

How cool. I like being tagged! Unfortunately I won't get to begin my tagging 'til we get dsl at home (I only have about 30 minutes of time here and there to get on-line at school which barely gives me enough time to catch up on email and of course read the latest at Lonesome Pine!). So thanks, I will begin my tagging adventure at some point in the near future. It's fun to know those extra tidbits about you!
