Well, Rocksee, from At the Porch Swing, tagged me last week to share 7 reasons why I am super cool... or awesome... or just plain special. I think. But, Rocksee forgive me, I am a bit of a rebel when it comes to following the leader. I like to mix things up a little, make things a little different, and most of the time just plain like to break the rules. So today, I am throwing all caution to the wind and breaking some rules.
Here's what's happening today on 4 Nuts in a Nutshell: I am going to tell you three things about me that make me awesome that you didn't know. THEN everyone of you who read this is tagged! Haha Tricked you! Yeah, really you are all tagged. But what I want you to do, is leave a comment telling us 3 things that make YOU awesome. Then feel free to post this on your blog if you want, but it is totally optional! Up to you. Okay, get it? Are you sure? Should we go over it again? No, you really got it? Okay. No, I am not stalling! Okay here are 3 things that make me super cool.
#1 Super Cool thing about me that you don't know: I am a closet artist. Shhhh... don't tell because I don't do it often. Only when I feel a rush of creativeness that can't be contained that I pull out my art box and get down with some paper. The sad thing is I'm not as good as I think I am.#2 Totally awesome fact about me that will surprise you: I speak fluent Spanish. Seriously, I do! Okay, I may be a little rusty, but I still have it in me.
#3 Special quality that you had no idea I had: I can sing. And I think I am pretty good! But you won't see me trying out for American Idol any day soon. But I had some great experiences as a young woman singing the national anthem for regional sports, singing with a children's choir for the Pope in Rome, and staring in the lead soprano role in Pirates of Penzance as a senior in high school. But those days are behind me. Now the only singing I do is to my kids, and they just don't appreciate it at all!! Sam gets really mad when I sing. If he doesn't start screaming, he throws stuff at me. Talk about a blow to the ego!Alright there you go. Three things about me you probably didn't know. What? Why didn't I do seven like the tag said? Because I can't tell you everything about me! Then I would lose my air of mystery... Stop laughing! I am a very mysterious person! Seriously. Okay, maybe I'm not. But I would like to think I am.... a little.
Anyway, now it's your turn. Put all modesty aside, I want to hear all about your bragging that you are afraid to do, but it is boiling up inside! This is your chance to let us all know, what makes you great!
Note: Do not under any circumstances think that you aren't as cool as Mama Nut. We all have our moments of the spot light. Those were Mama Nut's -- not likely to be repeated in the future. Have a great day!!
