Tangent Tuesday

I keep saying I'm going to pick back up with doing the Three Tangent Tuesday since oh, say, TWO years ago, BUT I kept forgetting (I think I need a blog post reminder calendar!)  =)

So. Here are my three 'betcha-didn't-know-that-about-me tidbits!

1.   I used to play clarinet (junior high) and saxophone (high school) but would have no CLUE what to do with either one now. I also played piano for a quite a number of years. I was never very good, but I still enjoy it! (I play a mean 'Chopsticks'!)

2.  Both my older brothers are incredible artists. Someone how I missed out on that gene and got the good looks instead.  Hee Hee

3.  Ok this is an embarrassing one!  In the 2nd grade, I peed my pants out of defiance to a teacher.  I really had to go to the bathroom and for some reason or another (another being she was just plain MEAN!) she would not let me go. I knew if I peed my pants, they would call my mom and she would get me and take me home, then I could give her my 'my-teacher-hates-me-and-is-SO-mean!' sob story and she would pull me out of that school and put in in another elementary school, which is what I wanted anyway.  My teacher was MEAN I tell you!! 

How are those for random??  =)

Play along and tell me 3 random things about yourself in the comments!


  1. 1. I can write my name in cursive forward, backward, upside down and upside down backwards. Weird. It's harder with other words, but I can do those, too.
    2. In 2nd grade I was trying to direct a skit and one of the boys made me laugh so hard I peed my pants (I didn't want you to be alone ;) )
    3. One of the recurring dreams I have is one where I am coming around a curve on a mountain highway and I can't make the car turn so we fly off the side of the mountain.

  2. I have reoccurring dreams too-so weird! And thanks for letting me know I'm not the only one to have peed my pants in elementary school...must have been something about second grade, huh? =)

  3. haha! Oh my goodness! That story about your peeing your pants is so hilarious and sad, all at once!

    1. Yep. I was embarrassed for SURE!!! But so glad to be done with that teacher that it was worth it =)
