Ages ago, Karen tagged me in her blog post… Karen, please forgive me for being so delinquent in my blogging. So, without delay, here are my 10 honest truths.
1. I talk to Radar like he is a human, which I think is because we are alone together so often. I know he isn’t going to answer me back, but I do it anyway. Every day when I come home from work I pet him and ask, “How was your day… What did you do today?” When I am laying in bed at night I call out, “Goodnight Radar.” Justin usually resorts to one of three tactics: mocking me, pretending to talk back in Radar’s voice, or just ignoring it all together.
2. To remember where I have parked in large structures/lots, I assign curse words to my parking spots. (example: If I parked in 3J I would remember 3 jerks- Not really a curse word but you get the idea.)
3. As I go about life, I am constantly asking myself, “What would Michael Scott do in this situation?” It’s not that I want to emulate him, but more that I am obsessed with how he handles social situations.
4. One of my favorite things in the whole wide world is holding babies. I am scared that when I have my own kids I am not going to be able to let others hold them. I promise, I am normally a good sharer!
5. Like many people (I hope), I occasionally get the urge to laugh during the most inappropriate times. Being in HR, this can be a huge problem. Imagine how you would feel if someone started laughing uncontrollably at you during your interview… Or, even worse, while you were being fired? The worst, however, was when I got the giggles during my great grandmother’s funeral.
6. During high school I worked as a hostess at an Italian restaurant. We were located near a big military base so people would come in wearing their uniforms somewhat frequently. I would try to thank each one who came in to eat… Usually the service people appreciated my sentiments, but it would turn me into a mushy wreck. One time I got so distracted thanking a pilot that I walked into another table right in front of his whole family.
7. When I was little, I played a game with my little sister Allie that revolved around a blizzard at an airport. I don’t remember all the details, but I would basically cover her with every blanket we owned, to keep her from dying. She was probably 3 at the time, which explains why the heck she let me do this to her. This story also shows that my fear of natural disasters started at a young age.
8. I have tried dressing up Radar in human clothes. Don’t judge.
9. If I could have 3 wishes, one would be to sing like Lea Michele from Glee.
10. When I laugh too hard, I sometimes pee my pants. Again, don’t judge.
