JUST ONE OF THE GUYS (almost)

As I stand on the thresh-hold of '45' (which is just 5 years shy of half a century) I realize that I am still every bit of the tomboy that I was as a kid.  Oh, I'm not a total tomboy, I still have my feminine influences but truth be told, I'm more like one of the guys than I am like one of the girls.

I can belch with the best of them but I always follow up with 'excuse me'.

I'm good at playing 'quarters', the drinking game, but I always bail out early because of my allergy to alcohol.

I love football, but I pick my teams based on their team logo.  If they don't look cool, they don't deserve to win the Superbowl.

I actually enjoy smoking a pipe on a rare occasion, but the tobacco has to be fruit or icecream scented.

I like bugs, from a distance.

I love war movies, but I always cry when the heros die.

I love the mountains, but am terrified of heights ( yeah, I don't get that one either)

I hunt for food and clean my own kill, but hate getting guts under my fingernails.

I drive a big pick-up truck, and blast Phantom of the Opera from the cd player.

My favorite outfit consists of blue jeans, and a white lace blouse.

I cuss like a sailor, but substitute with names of fruit around the kids.

And yes, I FART!  but I'll always deny it because everyone knows that mommy's don't fart!

ROFLMBO!  Yep, I would have to agree, after this entry, you definitely have some Tomboy in ya!!!

I can relate to loving the mountains and being afraid of height, yet I have been over Trail Ridge probably 6-7 times now, which is the highest continous road in the United States. :-)

Cute....Dorn you said allergy to drinking? Does your face flush? That happens to my daughter I wonder if it's a Japanese thing? My MIL could not drink, from the translation I got she said she looked like sunburn if she drank. Just wondering. Sandi
