Farkleberry Five


I snagged this from Michelle’s blog and it’s five things about me you may not know:

FARKLEBERRY FIVE

1. I am the oldest of four children. Being the oldest comes with responsibilities, you know. Every time one of the younger ones got in trouble or got hurt, my Dad blamed me because “You’re the oldest. You should know better!” If I only had a dollar...

2. When I still lived at home, I always shared a room with my sister. Being three years apart in age, she was the pesky little sister, and on top of it she was a tattle–tale. I use to have re-occurring nightmares. I’d wake her up and she’d listen to me tell stories or play word games with me until I was ready to go back to sleep.

3. I am not the most graceful person in the world. Ever since I can remember, I’ve been called clumsy. If there’s a doorway, I often misjudge the distance and end up bumping into it. That also goes for chairs, tables, bedposts! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve fallen down the stairs, up the stairs, and tripped in the yard.

4. I was a member of the National Honor Society when I was in high school, and am a member of Phi Theta Kappa, National Honor Society for 2yr colleges.

5. I am afraid of heights. I can’t walk up a set of bleachers (the kind you can see through to the ground) without becoming nervous after about four levels. I never sit at the top! Being in a plane or at the top of tall building doesn’t bother me. Go figure!

Loved your five! I am afraid of heights period1 Planes or buildings included. And I am with you on the graceful part too. I have the bruises to prove it! Have you tripped over your own feet? I have !!! LOL!

Yup, I can relate to the being the oldest one, and I don't like bleachers either, they feel way to open to me.
