Ten Unique Things About Me!...

John Scalzi challenged us to list "Ten Things That I Have Done That You Probably Haven't"  I am going to attempt to do this challenge.  Play along if you would like!  His entry is linked here as well as other's!  Here are mine:

1.  I was in a county spelling bee in seventh grade.  I froze up and lost.

2.  I had two brain surgeries.

3.  I was homeless for a few months and slept on a friend's couch.

4.  I won an award for a watercolor in a county art show as a child.

5.  A man with an axe in the female protection aisle tried to hit me over the head with it when I was 19.  I was quick to flee!  He went to jail. 

6.  I have talked a few people out of suicide.

7.  I threw-up at school and on the school bus in sixth grade.  It was awful!

8.  I gave a beer to the WWF wrestler, Superfly Snooka.  Does anyone remember him?

9.  I drank my first glass of milk when I was 11.  I remember it distinctly!

10.  I ate only beef hearts and pears for about two years when I was a tot because of allergies.
