7 things...

Ok, so I got tagged with one of those 7 things no one knows about you chains. Typically I don't respond because its a waste of time, but I am feeling a little bored and nostalgic tonight so I thought it might be fun.

7. I wear weird socks. This might not be news to some of you, but when I wear socks I wear weird ones. When I was in high school I heard someone say one time that you should do whatever you can to make someone smile. I thought that was a litte lame, but later that day when I showed someone my fuzzy orange toe socks they smiled and right then and there I decided that I would make people smile with my socks. I know have dozens of pairs of random weird socks that I wear with pride, and I love to switch up my holidays and wear St. Patrick's Day socks at Christmas, etc.

6. I believe I still have an FBI file. When I was in high school, my best friend ran away from home after geting caught sneaking onto an air force base. Being that air force bases are federally monitered and that they thought she woud call me, the FBI bugged our phones and had military police following me for days. They even showed up at a choir concert!

5. I used to be obsessed with ALF! Yep, the little creature from the planet Melmack. Here's proof...that's me!

4. I once had a 250-lb pig living in my basement. As a kid my uncle stole a pig from a farmer and was then to chicken to take it back. It ended up living in our basement for about 6 months and grew big enough to eat 1,000 stryofoam cups and break open a helium tank. He also slept on top of the washing machine and once tried to eat me from the feet up.

3. My husband is 3 years younger than me, and we have been best friends since we were little kids. I really do mean little kids. I believe I was in the 5th grade when I met him, maybe even before that. I can say though that I am only 25 and I have already known my husband for over half of my life. And we have the best story in the world! Here is a picture of us not long after we met...

2. When I was 3 years old I fell and bit off the tip of my tongue. The doctors had to reattach it while I was still awake and told my parents that I would likely have a speech impediment for the majority of my life. Little did they know God had planned for me to never shut up!

1. I used to steal remote controls from hotels. It started in junior high and went into my junior year in high school. I don't really remember how it all started anymore, other than that someone dared me to do it. It eventually became a competition between some friends and I to see who had the most. I lost though, I think I only ended up with like 5 because I was afraid they were going to put me in jail or smoething!
