Dirtycowgirl has given me my first blog award!!!
I am so honored.
However, it comes with "conditions".
I have to tell 3 random facts about myself:
1)I played basketball in seventh grade, and in seventh grade only. I excel at all the sports and I scored many of the goals.
My career ended abruptly when I sprained my ankle.
The worse part was the guy who wrapped my ankle said to really tape it effectively, he would have to shave my ankle.
This may come as a surprise, but seventh grade boys absolutely pride themselves on their blossoming leg hair. The social status of hairy little boy legs in the late 80s cannot be overstated.
2) According to the picture above, I have the nastiest looking lower leg and foot I have ever seen.
3) Since that fateful basketball match, my ankle has been a weak, traitorous bone that loves nothing more than taking sudden vacations from stability.
The resulting crash of my body has given countless strangers opportunity to belly laugh.
Like the time I had just climbed out of the car to return Guitar Hero to the video store.
I was whistling a happy little song, like so many chubby little white men do when they go about their daily business.
I put my foot down on the curb and my ankle said to my leg hair, "Hee hee" and promptly took five.
Everyone inside the video store crowded at the window.
Okay, so those are three things about me.
Now the other condition: I have to pass the award on to seven other bloggers.
HEY HERE YOU GO!!!
Hmmm...let's see, I'll give it to:
Candy for Breakfast
I'd Like Cheese on my entire family
We Band of Mothers
and...um...I need to read more blogs...
