Three Things Meme

I wrote this post two years ago, and it’s sat in my blog’s drafts folder since then. It’s time to release it to the world!

Blind Lemming Chiffon participates in his first meme.

Rules: Post 3 things you’ve done that you believe nobody else on your F-list has done. Indulge in remorse if someone calls you out on a listed item.

Obviously, this meme began on LiveJournal, or somewhere else with a “Friends-list”. We will reinterpret this to mean any reader of this blog. Yes, that’s you.

This seems to be the inverse of the popular drinking game, “I Never” (Where you proclaim something you’ve never done, and anybody else who has done it, has to drink.) So, if one of my readers has done one of the below, let me know, so I can imbibe the proper amount of alcohol.

1) I’ve read over 1500 books in a 12-month period. (1509 in First grade, which is actually a 9-month period, so I am being generous. I know I participated in the Summer Reading Program at my local library the summer after 1st grade and read an additional 100 books. These books weren’t long. I was in first grade.)

2) Played for an entire season on an undefeated baseball team, while striking out every at bat. (Optimist Baseball. I think I was in 3rd grade. Luckily there were others on my team who were better athletes.)

3) Knew what a catheter was from first-hand experience prior to age 18.

I lied last night

Phone Conversation

Caller: Good evening. Are you familiar with Amendment __, which will be on the ballot on Tuesday
Me: Yes. [This was a true statement]
Caller: Can I count on your support in the election?

I realized that if I answered, ‘No,” there was likely to be a follow-up question or two trying to change my mind.

Me: Yes.
Caller: Thanks. (end of call)

I hope G-d forgives me.
