I've Been Tagged For Another Meme

I've been tagged by Rhonda over at Scooterblu's Whimsey. Rhonda is such a lovely person, and I just love visiting her blog. She's a very talented lady. She just about does it all . I found out just yesterday that she is even great at Catering. You should stop by, if you haven't already, she's also popular.

In this Meme I'm to list six unimportant things about me. Now while writing this meme I began to remember some things that were sort of unpleasant at that time, but very funny to me now, so let's have fun with it.

1. I'm 5'7'' tall, I've been this height since six grade and was the tallest in my class, tall and lanky, I always felt like a Giraffe towering over the others. I use to always wear low heel shoes and walk around with my head down, to appear shorter but, instead made myself look like a tall Hunchback. My sister was always yelling at me to hold my head up. I was a mess! Thank God I'm well over that!

2. Also in the six grade I had a surprise attack of warts to show up on one of my knees. About fifteen of them. There was a lot of stuff in the news during that time about Wounded Knee and the boys started to call me that as a nickname. To this day I don't think I know what Wounded Knee was all about, I just know it triggered another traumatic time in my life. I tried using Compound W to remove the warts but, it really didn't do any good, I just woke up one morning somewhere down the road and they had left just as mysteriously as they had come.

3. I wear a size 9 shoe, and that same nine shoe was also in the picture in the six grade. You can imagine how that looked because as I told you before I wore flats. So now I'm 5'7', head down, hunchback, skinny as a rail, with canoes on my feet. I got teased about that too. Wow! I never knew the six grade had caused me so much mental anguish. LOL!

4. Okay I thought of one more, I had my first fist fight in the 6th grade. Of Course! With all the teasing I was getting, it was bound to happen. I remember it was this boy, his name was James Nash, I don't remember what started it but, I know I pulverized him. He thought I was his mama, as tall as I was over him. Uh huh, alright now, six grade, is a done deal.

5. I've always went out of my way not to have a switch when I walk, I see women doing it, but never knew if it was real or fake. I just knew that I didn't want it.

6. I was nineteen years old before I started carrying a purse. Carrying a purse always made me feel as though I was dressed up and I didn't like being dressed up, I was a straight out Tomboy. That's why I was able to take care of James Nash.

Well those things are unimportant now, I think they are. I hope you had a few laughs all of that is so silly to me now. Alright here are the rules:

1) Link back to the person that tagged you.
2) Post the rules on your blog.
3) Share 6 unimportant things about yourself.
4) Tag other bloggers to participate, at the end of your entry.

I'm not going to follow the rules this time, mainly because I just tag 5 last week. But if you find this fun, then play. I had a Blast!
