Things you may or may not know about me.

Things you may or may not know about me.

1. I have a twin.

2. I don’t really have a twin. I’m a pathological liar.

3. I’m not REALLY a pathological liar. I am just an embellisher of the truth.

4. Now you’re going to wonder if everything I say is complete and utter crap.

5. Good. That’s what I was shooting for. ;)

6. Here’s one: When I was fourteen, my best friend tried to teach me to drive and I drove her dad’s car right into a deep ditch. It had to be towed out.

7. The song, ‘Release Me’ by Wilson Phillips changed my life for the better.

8. When I was a middle school teacher, I led my Texas Future Problem Solving team to a State Championship two years in a row.

9. The smell of cigarette smoke makes me nauseous.

10. I broke my left arm when I was in junior high, horsing around in the girls’ bathroom.

11. I once saw Emilio Estevez waiting in line at a movie theater in Austin, Texas.

12. I used to have very long hair that hung almost to my waist.

13. I have never been to Canada. But I would like to go.

14. I have been drunk in a border town in Mexico. I would not like to do that again.

15. My middle name is Anne.

16. One of the statements from #6-#15 is not true. Any idea which one it is? ;)

#11, obviously. Emilio Estevez wouldn't have to wait in line at a movie theater...

GOSH I love English! SO easy to pivot the meaning of any given sentence!!! :-)

To quote Merriam-Webster's Dictionary of English Usage, "Any handbook that tells you that nauseous cannot mean 'nauseated' is out of touch with the contemporary language. In current use it seldom means anything else."

I used to be an English teacher. AND the grammar police. ;)
