5 Things

I generally don't do tagged posts and such, but my older sister tagged me and THEN she kinda called me out on Facebook so I kinda HAVE to do this one. Sheesh - sisters! ;)
So let's think...five things about me you might not know...

1.  I drove a school bus for a while as a part-time job.  I absolutely loved it, and I think it was a great experience.  I mean...anytime you can say that you have successfully passed your CDL testing AND you can drive confidently while a naughty kindergartner hits you over the head with his backpack (Ryan..I'm looking at you) is well worth it, you know? Can you parallel park a school bus? 'Cause I can!

2. One of my favorite smells on earth is the smell of an auto garage.  I am really not a car girl - I couldn't fix my car to save my life (I can change a tire, check my oil..that's about it), but the smell itself is comforting to me. I think it reminds me of my Pop-pop - he was always tinkering when I was little and he didn't mind me just sitting up there with him while he worked.

3. I don't really like to swim.  It's just kind of...meh. I don't really get the point of it - and I really can't stand being wet.  I like to take the boys in the pool just to see how happy it makes them, but if they aren't swimming - neither am I.

4. I ate a fried silkworm once.  On purpose.  It was...flaky.

5.  Since I have apparently been on a automotive kick - we will end with a driving fact too.  When I was 17 I failed my driving test because I ran a red light.  Yep.  I did that. The instructor told me to just go on back to the DMV at that point.  I cried. 


There you go Em! I did it!

  2. My dad always smelled like motor oil when he came home from work--garages are oddly comforting to me too :)

  3. Can't believe you can drive a bus! I freak out when I drive the truck, so there is no way I'd be able to do that!

    Travis ALWAYS smells like motor oil.
