Wee Bit About Me Wednesday

{one} what is your happiest childhood memory?

The Community, of course!!! O my gosh, I don't even know where to begin. I grew up in the best neighborhood. It was Ann-Hamilton, Elizabeth, Mallory, Leslie and I, plus about 10 other kids. We were all inseperable, NEVER went inside and referred to ourselves as "the community." We spent our days playing kickball, softball, baseball, hotbox, spotlight, tennis, basketball,swimming, riding bikes etc. Two of the most memorable days were the day Liz chipped her front tooth and the day of the "Jazzy Reindeer."

P.S. Leslie just had her second baby this morning!! Greer Howard Odom YAY!!!!

"The Day Elizabeth Chipped her Tooth"
O how dramatic this was. It was the Christmas that everyone got rollerblades and we all decided to test them out! We thought it would be a good idea to all hold on to a rope and rollerblade in a line sort of like a tug of war team (I'm not sure why??) ... and who do we put in the back to pull up the rear... None other than LIZ!! (Worst idea ever) Not only was she the smallest/youngest of us all, but she is also the most spastic. As we began to pick up some speed, Liz couldn't quite keep up and she face planted in the middle of the road, chipping half of her front tooth. At first, she was a good sport and  it didn't hurt that bad. Then we informed her that half of her front tooth was gone. You would have thought she was dying, the way she started screaming and crying. Needless to say, we never rollerbladed like this again.

"Jazzy Reindeer"
In 4th grade, all of the community member girls decided we were going to put on a Christmas show for those in the neighborhood. With Ann-Hamilton as our leader, we worked for months on finding the perfect Christmas tunes and perfecting her choreography. We went door to door with invitations to the main event, that took place in the Kalich's side yard. It was a big show complete with an intermission for cookies and coffee/hot chocolate. We each had on  warm up suits with a Christmas Iron-Ons outlined in puff paint, scrunchies and colored socks. And let's not forget that the neighborhood boys were in on this too. They did all of the decorating and "sound." We charged each attendee $5.00 and took all of the money we raised and bought presents for two angels off of the local angel tree. How cute were we!! And yes, we have this on tape and yes, it is HYSTERICAL

{two} what is your middle name?

{three} what’s the habit you’re most proud of breaking?
Drinking about 5 cokes a day. I now have sprite every now and then, and a coke about twice a month. I'd say I'm doing pretty good.

{four} what do you order when you order chinese food?
Well, I've never actually ordered chinese bc it's usually a buffet, but I eat the fried rice, egg rolls, egg drop soup and wantons. My daddy and I used to have contests to see who could eat the most egg rolls!

{five} what’s the best bargain you’ve ever found at a garage sale or thrift store?
I don't know that I've ever bought anything at a garage sale.

{six} what’s the best costume you’ve ever worn?
I always had the best costumes bc my mom can make anything, but I'd say the cutest was maybe my "Amelia Bedelia" costume on book character day. I wish I had the picture to upload.

{seven} who’s your favorite game show host?
I guess Pat Sajak and Vanna White since Wheel of Fortune's the best game show.

{eight} what’s your favorite breakfast food?
Chocolate Gravy w/ biscuits and Sausage Balls. OMG I can't wait for Christmas morning!!!

{nine} what’s your least favorite word?
pus- as in a sore that's infected .... UGH GROSS

{ten} describe something that happened to you for which you have no explanation.
Why Kendol and I were in Starkville for 4 years with tons of the same friends, but never met until 2 weeks before graduation. I still don't know what he saw in me bc when we met I was barefoot and in vs sweat pants and an XXL "I Love Coors Light" t shirt that I caught at the bar one night haha! Classy, I know. Who knows!!! No explanation here.
