I Been Tagged!

Konagod has tagged me for this meme:

I never use the word never except in past perfect tense as in " I have never....." Same with always. Never and always imply absolutes and there are seldom absolutes in this life.

I rarely assume that people like me when I first meet them. I'm usually a little surprised when they do.

I cry so seldom that I don't remember the last time I did. I know that there is value in crying and have gotten really messed up when I needed to cry and couldn't. I'm talking about not eating or sleeping for days at a time and really wishing I could just cry and get over myself.

I'm not always honest. There, I said it. If you ask me if that shirt looks good on you and I can tell that you really like the ugly assed thing, I'll lie and say that it looks great. If you ask me if someone said something nasty about you and they did and I heard it, knowing that it will just hurt you if I tell you about it, I'll say that I don't know anything about it. You get the picture.

I lose my reading glasses at least a dozen times a day.

I'm confused and I like it.

I miss Austin the way it was ten years ago before it doubled in size and I could afford to live closer to the center of town.

I need...I can't think of anything that I really need. Now if we are talking about things I want or would like to have, that's a whole nuther thang.

I should... Should is another word that has little presence in my vocabulary. It implies that something is lacking or less than perfect the way it is and that there is a certain discipline missing that needs to be adhered to in order to make things "right".

I love...my life in this 'big 'ol goofy world.'

I pass this meme along to anyone who wants to do it.....I'd really like to read whatever Flip would come up with.

Yep, that was exactly the time I showed up from California and ruined everything!!

God, I wish I'd bought real estate in downtown Austin about 20 years ago!

I liked your answers so much, and told Flip that you had tagged him for a meme.

"What's a meme?" he said.

I explained and he said he'd do it.

(If he can find his glasses.)
