Seven Strange Things About.... Mommy

Mommy was tagged by Megan and the Bad Kitty Cats for the Seven Strange Things meme, so I'm dutifully handing over the blog to her today:

Hmmm I never thought about what might be strange about me so this is going to be interesting to do.

Strange thing number one: Until I married Matt, I never dated the same guy longer than three months. I guess honestly that's true even with Matt because we broke up right about the three month mark the first time we dated and were married before the three month mark the second time we dated. Hmmm, I just realized that three must be a magical number for me because Matt and I went out on our first official date (without Mike and Val, my brother-in-law and sister-in-law) on March 3, 2003 and were married on the third day of the month.

Strange thing number two: I got married in one week. Matt was in the hospital and I walked into his room and asked me to marry me (we were already engaged) now instead of waiting. I suggested the hockey game the following Saturday. He agreed (well I have to admit he was drugged at the time) and so Val and I called everyone. The hockey team contacted us and offered to let us get married on the ice and, viola, one week later, Matt and I were married in front of over 3,000 people in the break between the first and second periods. It was Matt's first hockey game, a highly memorable game for all and couldn't have been more perfect if we had planned it for ages.

Strange thing number three: My toes are long enough I can play the piano with them, although not well.

Strange thing number four: I can sing the Oscar Mayer bologna song in Spanish.

Strange thing number five: Until I got married, I never had to share a room, apartment or house with anyone (well other than my parents and sister when I was growing up). It really is quite remarkable that Matt and I have made it this far considering I didn't know how to share and I waited so late in life to get married.

Strange thing number six: When I graduated from law school, my parents asked me what I wanted as a graduation gift. I told them that I wanted one last family vacation to Disneyland, which, of course, they gave me. So the day I graduated, my parents, sister and I piled into the car for our family vacation, but not before I yelled "I'm going to Disneyland" as I walked across the stage to get my diploma. The Dean even told me to say "hi" to Goofy for him. I made the news.

Strange thing number seven: I was running out of ideas when I asked Matt about what's strange about me. He said that I love him. I don't think that's strange at all. He's a heck of nice guy, who loves me with all his heart, puts up with all my fussiness, and treats me like a princess. What's not to love about that?

That was actually really hard because I'm a pretty normal girl, with only occasional bouts of quirks. Anyhow, I dare all of those reading this entry to give it a try. Tell us what is strange about you!

We didn't think any of your Momma's things were strange, we thought they were very interesting. Loved the one about the hockey wedding -- how purrfect.

I think those things sound more charming than strange.

Wow that is really cool! Meowmy really wishes she got to go to law school but she says she just can't do it now. Your mom sounds like a fun gal!


Parker said...

Mom said to tell you to tell your momma that she's not THAT strange at all. Those things make her memorable.

Samantha & Tigger said...

That was nice! We don't think your strange. Wow a wedding at a hockey game. That was really cool! Thanks for sharing that with us.
Your FL furiends,

Those aren't STRANGE things --just interesting things. Our mom is too boring to even come up with a list anything like that.
