8 Random Facts

I was tagged by Dee at My Heart's Dee-Light to write 8 random facts about myself. I'll try to keep it interesting, but...hmmm...

1. I wore a patch on my eye my entire first grade year to help repair a stigmatism in my right eye. It was verrrrrrry embarrassing.

2. I played "Rosie" of Bye-Bye Birdie my senior year in high school. Even though I was a good lil baptist girl, I had to dance on top of a table in a short skirt pretending to be drunk (my character). My choir director was furious that I substituted the word H-E-double cross-sticks for "Heck" instead. For all three shows. ;)

3. While leading praise last year, I fell off the front of the stage, tumbling right on my rumpus in front of a bunch of 4th grade boys. They were thoroughly entertained.

4. During my first kiss at a school dance (terrible, isn't it), I got my upper lip stuck in the guy's braces. So much for being inconspicuous in the dark corner.

5. At church camp my junior year, I was voted as having the sexiest legs. What in the world the leaders were thinking by allowing that contest, I have NO idea. And I most certainly would not win now...unless of course I could shake them to the Jello brand gelatin theme song and win for comedy.

6. I have had, um, er, a bit of cosmetic surgery, and NO ONE will get out of me any more details on the subject.

7. I had my third baby naturally, and I still won't watch the traumatic video footage. Why I chose to do it with the 3rd, instead of the 1st or 2nd, I have Nooooooooooo idea.

8. I once spent an entire evening out speaking Australian. I tried my best to sound just like Olivia Newton John. Glad I didn't get asked to sing...

So there you go!!!! Anyone want me to tag them? Let me know in the comment line...

Yup! You're comfirming it with every revealing detail that you would fit in nicely with Kathy and I lol. Speaking of that. We have a favor to ask you.......

BP said...

Oh no, your lip got caught in his braces! I've heard of that and wondered if it really happened in real life, ya know!

Dee Yoder said...

Oh my goodness, Laura! I'm laughing my head off at you...what a character and so fun to read. You've had an interesting life and you're still so young!

I seriously doubt you would not be voted best legs now. You look so pretty in your photos. And you got me tickled with the rest. Caught in braces-Yer ouch! You must be a character in life. My side is still hurting over the braces thing. I'm laughing with you. I had an almost similar experince. Stay sweet and humorous, my adorable friend.
I'd give you a big old bear hug but I just have a hard time wrapping my arms around this darn computer. HAHA! HEEHHEE! Okay I'm a teaser like my dad. You sound the same way. Now get off this computer and go aggravate your husband. I'm just kidding. NAH! He probably deserves it.
Smile!!!!

The Surrendered Scribe said...

What fun this was to read, most people play it safe but I think you exposed every skeleton out there about you.

I'll play along and most likely post on Sunday. Pretty sure my random facts won't be as interesting as yours, but I'll see what I can come up with.

Joyfull said...

Loved the facts!! Thanks for sharing. I also wore a patch over my eye when I was younger. My first kiss was also a disaster - no details though!! Thanks for sharing with us.
