Why me….???

It’s happened again! And it’s the same person who did it to me the last time! What am I ranting about? the fact that I’ve been tagged!!! It was a real struggle the last time, cos I get sort of tongue tied when asked to reveal details about myself. And just as I heaved a huge sigh of relief, it’s happened again!

This time around I’ve been asked to tell people some little known facts about myself. So having run through many hundreds of totally embarrassing ones, I have whittled it down to stuff that will still let me show my face in public.

1. I was born on Good Friday. Unfortunately that seems to have had absolutely no bearing whatsoever on the way I behave!

2. Unlike most other kids, I didn’t learn to read using the traditional spelling books. I learnt to read on Asterix and Tin Tin comics. Which probably explains why I still love all forms of comic books.

3. I used to unload lorries during my first job (which was at 17 years of age).

4. I really, really hate people picking food off my plate. What I’ve served / bought is what I want to eat, so leave it alone!!

5. I have a second cousin in Australia who has the exact same name! Major difference is…. he’s a priest!

6. I have a very short term memory, so I can read the same book 3 or 4 times over. Of course it also means I have to be introduced to the same people more than once!

7. I was nicknamed ‘Rocket’ in school. For reasons I shall definitely not reveal here!!

OK…. So that’s that. Unfortunately, I’m clueless as to how I add links on here. So I guess a few people are going to get off easy for now. But as the wolf used to tell the rabbit…… Just you wait!!!
