This is a FUN game. We all share all sorts of feelings and deep thoughts about ourselves on 3FC. What about the fun stuff? The little snippets or tidbits of information that makes you you.

The tricky part will be to keep it positive. In other words...try to stay away from: I don't like statements. Tell us what you like or tell us something fun that happened at work or tell us about your 1st happy memory or tell us your shoe size or tell us you love to wear thong undies or tell us your favorite color or WHATEVER. Tell us something that makes you unique.

RULES (of course there has to be rulzzzes :) )

-Wait your turn. Make a post and then wait for a fellow 3FC'er to post.
-Keep it positive.
-One thought or snippet or tidbit per post.

The GAME is on....Ready Set Go...

Example: Yes, I know I didn't wait my turn...

My sister is 15 years older than me and I am 15 years older than my niece (my sisters daughter. SO my sister is like a mother to me and I am like a mother to my niece. I say mother because I do not have children of my own!

In kindergarten I got in trouble because I wouldn't share the razor while we were playing in the house center. (seriously!)

I got sent home from school in Jr. High for wearing a "sizzler" dress that was too short! Hey, it had matching panties underneath!

I'm not counting that as my "thing that you don't know about me". Here it is: I have always secretly admired my hands because I think they're pretty.

Growing up my neighbors didn't have any children so I became like one of their own. If I didn't like what my mom was cooking for supper I would go over to Dottie & Eddies and see what they were having...

I had a pony named Charlee when I was 7 or 8. She was a girl, and she came with a saddle that had the image (and name) of Roy Rogers embossed on the stirrups. I got teased but I didn't care, because I loved Charlee and I loved my saddle!

Speaking of Roy Rogers ( I have been to his museum by the way) when I was in 5th grade...my youngest brother left his lunch-pail in his teachers class...they were younger and left earlier...she brought it up to my class...gave it to my teacher...who gave it to me....all the...well some of the kids started teasing me...I turned bright red...I will never forget it...

and when my dad was dying of cancer and "out of it"...I walked into his room...he looked at me and said..."Who are you? Roy RUUUUgers?" and started laughing!...

I will never forget that either!

As a child, while in grade school...we had neighborhood schools. So I walked 2 school and then home for lunch and then back and then back home after school. When I was in 6th grade they started a school lunch program (a brown bag one) but you could stay at school.

I was quiet in school, and in the sixth grade this big bully guy started teasing me and grabbing me. When the teacher would leave the room in every single class we went to, he'd get up, walk by me and grab my shoulders or tap me on the back of the head. I was so embarrassed, but wouldn't complain.

Then one day I snapped. In earth science one day, the teacher had to go make copies. He did his normal routine of getting up from his desk a few back from me, and he walked up to me and grabbed my shoulders. I hauled off and back-handed him.

There was a loud "Whoa!" as the whole room watched him fly backward and land on his butt as the teacher walked back into the classroom. He got up saying "Mindi hit me!" I was about to DIE. Then this teacher, the COOLEST teacher ever, asked the class, "Did he deserve it?" And they said yes. I got in no trouble.

He left me alone, and eventually went on to become a high school dropout and part-time criminal.

I'm scared of wild turkeys.
I know they can't hurt me but 10 or 12 years ago I was out alone on my snowshoes, daydreaming I guess because I didn't notice the tracks in the snow or the droppings.... I startled a group of roosting turkeys and they shot out of the trees making noises and flapping their wings. I nearly had a heart attack. Now I can't stand the creepy things - I hate to see them at the side of the road. lol

Speaking of things we can't stand...I'm afraid of hermit crabs. My niece once chased me around a pet store with a little hermit crab in a painted shell. To me they're like spiders....all those spindly legs and WHY? WHY does anything need that many poky-looking legs?!

I am the most accident prone person I know of, though I'm sure people somewhere beat me. I've had stitches in my lip from where my sister was swinging me by the arm at age 5 or 6, and let me go, and I flew into the TV. I cut the bottom of my foot open pretty bad running through the yard as a kid - I stepped on a bone someone had given the dog. I've fallen and bumped my head an uncountable number of times, with only a couple of concussions. I've been involved in 7 car accidents, only one was my fault, and one I was a passenger. I've been attacked by a dog and fell and cut my leg on broken glass. I'm always bruised somewhere...

one of my aunts best friends for years was Tammy Wynette. I grew up knowing her and didnt realize as a child what a coup it actually was. i asked her to come to 'show and tell' when i was 9 and my teacher thought i was lying when i said she would be there... shoulda seen her face when she walked in the classroom lmao.. was priceless:)

^ I thought we were the only violent sisters.....
My younger sister stabbed me with a fork when we were in grade school. I've forgotten what we were arguing about now, but I suppose I provoked her. ;) By the time our parents got home the fight was forgotten - but I've still got a scar on my upper arm.

I took all the math I could in high school, scored high in it on my ACT exam. Can't remember any of it anymore and my hubby had to help my kids in algebra.

I balance my checkbook every single week-end by going on-line to my bank accounts... Easy that way...

Only if you are disciplined enough to do it each week!

I have over a hundred bottles of ink. And wherever possible, I prefer to write with fountain pens (I collect them...the ink just accumulates) to ballpoints or rollerballs.

The fun part of it is that I use and teach technology all day, every day for a living. I guess some of us just appreciate good engineering!

We heard on the TV not long ago that that's what every couple should do, have 2 accounts. But, we've had a joint account since we got married 30 years ago and it's always worked well for us so we're not going to change now. I do balance our checkbook every now and then, but the truth is I'm more than happy to leave that task to Fergie. :lol:

My wise father said the secret to a happy marriage was that one person controlled the checkbook and the other person abided by whatever rules had been set by the checkbook queen/king. :rofl:

We have 2 accounts. I balance to the penny - thank goodness for Quicken. My sweetie could care less about the balancing act and let's Quicken do it all, but insists on paying all theshared bills from her account. Fine by me. I just turn in my copies of the one joint credit card receipts. :devil:

Two accounts here too. I use Microsoft Money. My husband is an accountant so I have to balance to the penny or he's got his nose in it to find out why. Separate credit cards too.

I was 27 when I graduated from college. It took me 4 tries before I found a fit! Now that I am almost 50...at 27 I thought I was so old...and now at 49, 27 sounds so young!

My favorite things in life are sounds....when my children tell me they love me, when I hear my mother laugh, and when my husband key rattles in the doorknob because I know at least for one more night, he's alive and he's home.
