MamaT's trivial bits #4

40. I need the t-shirt that says: “Team work is a lot of people doing what I say.”
39. I also need the t-shirt that says: “I’m not bossy, I just know what you should be doing.”
38. My friend Jose calls me “Miss Bossy Boots.”
37. I’m ashamed to say that all those things are probably on target. But I’m working on it.
36. I say “fixin’ to” all the time. And I’m not fixin’ to stop.
35. I am proud of my West Texas growing up, and I would never ever change my accent, though it has worn off to some degree at this point.
34. The concept of purgatory made sense to me when I was a Protestant.
33. It took me awhile to warm up to Mama Mary.
32. I’ve never done ANY illegal drugs. Never. Not even once. I never even had a beer until I went to college.
31. I have been older than my years all my life.
30. I love to read children’s literature. I’m with C. S. Lewis on this one—you shouldn’t make kids read anything you wouldn’t read yourself.
29. When I was in elementary school, I read every single Nancy Drew book that had been published. And I wanted the snappy blue roadster. Unfortunately, I’m more like the “plump” Bess than the dashing Nancy.
28. I LOVE country and western music. Nothing like a little boot-scootin’ with the one you love—‘specially some place like the Ponderosa Ballroom in Abilene, where all the other women (not me!) either have that dyed white hair or that dyed black hair. Love it!
27. I also love oldies rock and roll, Big Band, and classical music.
26. I adore Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. They make me want to smoke and drink martinis, and I don’t do either!
25. Yes, I have danced around singing into a hairbrush. More recently than you would think.
24. I am a morning person.
23. Of course, both my husband and my son are serious night owls.
22. I think there is a law that says two morning people can’t marry each other.
21. I don’t like yard work or gardening very much, but I hope to get over that.


I think there is a law that says two morning people can’t marry each other.
isn't that the sad, sad, sad truth!

>> I love to read children’s literature.

Go share your love of Pullman's works with Amy Welborn. She can give you quite an earful on him.

Franklin, well, you've piqued my interest. Are you asking me to step into a minefield?

Eutychus, I think he is being a little ironic. I suspect that AW doesn't approve of that series.

Lots of people have lots of problems with that particular series. Doesn't start out too bad, but I understand it is pretty problematical by the final installment. There was an article in Crisis or Touchstone about it. I'll see if I can't hunt up a link to it and post it later.....
