19 Things About Me

I stole these question from an author I adore, R.L. Mathewson. She posted these on Facebook and challenged everyone to answer these 19 questions. It’s been a while since I blogged, so I figured I’d post my answers here. Without further ado, my answers to the post…

19 random facts about yourself that may surprise people.

  1. Do you make your bed every day?

Nope because if I did, my husband wouldn’t be able to breathe under there. He gets to roll his self-employed ass out of bed whenever he feels like it—the struggle is real, y’all.

  1. What’s your favorite number?

67—my old ATV racing number and the year model of my favorite Camaro.

  1. What is your dream job?

Billionaire—preferably obtained legally; the lotto would probably be the best option.

  1. If you could, would you go back to high school?

Absolutely! I get to know what I know now and have my high school body, right?

  1. What is something no one would ever guess about you?

I’ve had to battle insecurity my whole life.

  1. A job you had which people would be shocked to know you had?

I used to work at a roller skating rink—stop laughing! Fat chicks skate, too.

  1. Do you think aliens are real?

Clearly, you’ve never been to an Americana music festival if you have to ask this question.

  1. Can you drive a stick shift?

Yep, I do it every day—well, that is when the POS will actually run.

  1. Guilty TV pleasure?

It used to be Sons of Anarchy. Now it’s Preacher and Lucifer.

  1. Tattoos?

No, but as soon as I work up the nerve, I know what I want.

  1. If the world ends do you want to be one of the survivors?

Hell no! Haven’t you read The Road by Cormac McCarthy? I can’t eat babies.

  1. Things people do that drive you crazy?

I HATE it when people promise to do something, but then they don’t do it.

  1. Do you have any birthmarks?

No—just scars from childhood.

  1. Favorite childhood game?

This isn’t really a game, but after they paved my road, I used to take hardened clumps of clay and draw on the pavement—life before the Internet, y’all.

  1. Do you talk to yourself?

Every day. I like to have at least one intelligent conversation per day.

  1. Do you like doing puzzles?

Only if they don’t involve numbers and/or ridiculously obscure vocabulary.

  1. Music genre?

Mostly, I like what I would call outlaw country—Jamey Johnson, Chris Stapleton, Aaron Lewis, Hank jr., Eric Church, etc. Also, I like strong women singers—Miranda Lambert, Jennifer Nettles, the Dixie Chicks, etc.

  1. Tea or Coffee?

Both

  1. First thing you remember wanting to be when you grow up?

A fashion designer, which is hilarious considering I shed my work clothes as soon as I get home. I love yoga pants and t-shirts. Work clothes suck!
