Top ten tuesday – totally random

November 10, 2009 at 7:05 am (random, Top Ten Tuesday)


The RANDOM Edition.  As in, the MOST TOTALLY RANDOM Edition possible!!

1.  I was born exactly 9months after Valentines Day in 1978 – hmmm ….

2.  As a toddler, I walked into the beach backwards.

3.  My first real memory(you know the kind without pictures) is at the age of Kindergarten – I remember shutting myself in the closet of our bedrooom.  My mom was threatening to tell my teacher (Mrs. Bryan) that I wasn’t as good as she thought I was – apparently I was in trouble alot after coming home from school – ha!

4.  I got glasses for the first time during my 4th grade year – with Mrs. Pryor.  She always asked me to read to the class when she stepped out.  I guess that means I was a good student … but why do teachers do that?  Don’t they know the poor student doesn’t want to “tell” on anyone when she comes back!!

5.  I lost a pair of glasses once when they flew off my face during a hayride with our church youth group.  They were ran over & crushed.  I was crushed in fear of telling my parents they’d have to buy me another pair of glasses!

6.  I got braces during middle school – yes, I was the lucky one … glasses & braces at the same time!

7.  I broke another pair of glasses while playing basketball in the 8th grade.  The ball hit me square in the faces & those silly things busted right at the nose!!

8.  I got my first ticket the summer before my senior year of high school.  It wasn’t for speeding, but rather for pulling out & hitting someone – rats!

9.  I came close to a 2nd ticket in 2000, but the officer wished me happy birthday, asked me to slow down & sent me on my way … Thank you Lord for birthdays & nice policemen.

10.  I had Lasik eye surgery in 2004 & finally put an end to my glasses saga.  Absolutely the BEST invention – E.V.E.R!!!!

So, how’s that for random?!

    I hate wearing my glasses, so I just don’t. Isn’t that just horrible?! I really need Lasik!!

    BTW, I LOVE random!

    Great list! Glad the lasik surgery worked for you. I had it several years ago and then 2 more enhancements. Back in bifocals. It was a huge waste of several thousand dollars for me.

    Ouch! Mom was harsh. Don’t remember that one.

    Ms. Pryor…ugh. I didn’t know you had her too. But my question is…why the heck is she leaving the room?!?!

    I remember the hayride story and the first ticket!! Pulling out of the BP :)

    So about Lasik…
    How blind were you (strength of your glasses/contacts)?
    I am contemplating it only because at the tender age of 39 and after 31 years with glasses/contacts, my vision is still getting worse (-8.25 and counting). I correct very easily to 20/15 with contacts but if my astigmatism gets worse, I am really going to look into the surgery.

    I love random lists, btw!

    I don’t remember the “closet” thing either!!! (I’m not harsh!) I don’t even remember the hayride/glasses thing! (so I’m guessing dad and I really didn’t get upset about that either!) I DO REMEMBER the 1st ticket and didn’t hear about the “near 2nd” ticket! I LOVE the “backward beach walk” and I NEVER even thought about the fact that you were born 9 months after Valentine’s Day!!!!!!!!!

    This is super fun randomness! Poor thing, all those glasses problems AND braces. Feeling your pain! But thank GAWD for Lasik! Had mine done 3 years ago = FAB-U-LOUS!
