The Award

You know, when I asked for your old badges, I didn't expect to have to work for them.  I just wanted to stick them up in my sidebar and proudly display them as my own.  But no.  I have to be all introspective and crap.  Sheesh.

The rules are that I have to list 3 good things about myself.  Hmmm.

1.  I am extremely loyal.  Like a dog loyal.  If you don't like somebody, I don't like somebody.  If you don't carry a grudge against someone who has done you wrong?  I'll carry it for you.  Forever.

2.  I am the world's best quarters player.  Never EVER been beaten.  (What's that you say?  You don't know what quarters is?  It's a drinking game.  You have to bounce a quarter into a shot glass.  If you make it, everyone else at the table has to drink.)  My secret weapon was dropping it off my nose!  I would hold the quarter up on the bridge of my nose between my eyes with my two thumbs.  Then I would let go and the quarter would roll down my nose, bounce once on the table, then land right in the shot glass.  Every.  Single.  Time.  I haven't actually played this game in 20 years or so but every now and again I get my Elvis shot glass down just to see if I can still do it.  Of course I can.  It's just like riding a bike!

3.  I have nice handwriting.  When we started learning cursive in third grade I had a really hard time.  I had D's in penmanship for 2 years.  I had a really nice teacher in 5th grade and she gave me some books to use to practice with and I worked really hard and got the best penmanship award out of the whole school!  I still have that certificate somewhere.  If I take my time I can still write just like I did in 5th grade, which looks just like the writing in those books she gave me..

You would not believe how long it took me to come up with those 3 things.  May not be that earth-shattering of revelations, but it was the best I could do.  Please don't make me do this again!  But I will still gladly take your old unwanted badges, no strings attached.  And Yvonne, I think I can get one of your elebenty thousand badges off your blog if you will let me take one.  I kind of have my eye on one.
