Pregnant and Other Things

It’s official. I'm very uninteresting. Have you all seen this Versatile Blogger Award spreading like that nasty oil spill? Well, no one tagged me personally. Not one of you (unless I missed it, in that case I apologize). Finally, Anne Marie at Goals for the Week took pity on me. So, here are four random things about me. I only have four because on my 43rd birthday I listed 43 other random things, so I am running out. Maybe that’s why I didn’t get tagged. You are sick of my randomness.

1. I got my period when I was sixteen and I’m still waiting to go through the rest of puberty

2. I almost got crushed to death by one of these when I was ten years old outside of a nursing home:

3. A friend painted a picture on my pregnant belly at my baby shower. Obviously we had already named the little guy. Funny thing is, he kind of came out looking like the picture:

4. I fell out of a car when I was two. It was the days before seatbelts and car seats. My dad went around a corner, the door flew open and I flew out. My brother tapped my dad on the shoulder and said, “Beth’s gone.” They found me crying on the side of the road. I still think my brother pushed me. I lived. Guess it wasn’t my time.

That’s all I got.

Wish me luck on my triathlon tomorrow. Or at least wish me not to be DFL. I don’t start until 8:20, so by the time I run it’s going to be toasty.

  1. Do you mean DLF? Thought about you today during my duo. Is that creepy? I was actually thinking your thing was today and wondered how you did/would do. Good Luck! I never get tagged either, don't feel too sad

  3. You have the best fun facts, ever. I totally did a tri today. Okay, not really...but I did run, bike and swim before 1:00pm, so it counts. Good luck tomorrow!

  5. You're so popular that everyone assumed that you had been tagged! Number 4 is really, really funny. I completely remember those days of no seatbelts/car seats. It's a wonder we're all still here.

  12. I too fell out of a car - but I was 3 & we had just visited McDonald's. My mom said I was bawling my head off because my fries were all over the street & she wouldn't go get them for me.
    What kind of mom is she!?!?!?

  13. I hear you about the DFL! We'll be pushing each other in spirit tomorrow. Good Luck!

  14. Have fun and good luck! You are the last one that I would think wouldn't be tagged for this. Your randomness is hilarious!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I just assumed you have already tagged since you are so popular. I also thought you were announcing that you are pregnant from the title of the post. Love your four facts. Funny!

  16. Pushed out of a car, eh? I guess that's one way of eliminating the competition. I remember moving from one province to another with my youngest brother (about 6 months) sleeping in a basket on the floor. The seventies.

    Good luck tomorrow. You'll be fine.

  17. Good Luck tomorrow - I just know you will rock the tri tomorrow.

    Too funny that you fell out of the car - I so remember no seat belts. Crazy - we wouldn't think of driving without seat belts now.

    Swim . . . bike . . . run . . . ENJOY the experience.

  21. Heeeeeeeeeeeeyooooooooooo, no one tagged me either!

    Those are some awesome random things. When I'm all preggo, I'm having people draw on my belly too. At halloween, it'll be a pumpkin (i guess i'm planning my pregnancy to have a good bump at halloween, lol).

  22. I cannot wait to hear how you do today.

  23. Oh boo! I just realized I didn't tag you! Well, as a consolation, I have talked about you IRL, usually when referring to poop stories. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I didn't get tagged either. I join you in the boring/overexposed category.

    Good luck today!

  25. My son is Sam I Am too and we called him that the entire time I was pregnant :)

  26. You're like the pretty girl who doesn't get asked to the prom, because all the boys think you already have a date ;)

    Good luck tomorrow...I'm sure you'll be amazing! Have a blast!

  27. Well, I got tagged multiple times, sidestepped the idea and didn't tag anyone. You're welcome.

    So, let's start a new one: you've been tagged for "three things that make me sticky." [I've got: cotton candy in my beard, mistakenly tossing Gatorade over my head during races and walking barefoot on new blacktop.]

  28. Interesting things about you...as always. I figured with 500+ followers someone else would tag you. Next time I get tagged - you're it!

  29. I love the preggo belly pic! I hope you had a good race today! I can't wait to read all about it! :)
