My friend Wendy tagged me on my Facebook page to list 25 Random things about me. I thought I'd post them here too. This is as random as it gets...
1.I am deathly afraid of fire. I will only use those long lighter things. We had a wood burning fireplace in our first house – it never got used – not even once.
2.I hate ripe bananas. I like them when they are still a little bit green.
3.I was in a head-on car accident with a drunk driver. My knee was cut in half. I don’t remember the collision at all.
4.I’m a girlie girl but I like cars.

I'm supposed to tag other people but I'm inviting everyone - just play along if you want - no obligation. But if you play - let me know - heck you could even post in the comments if you are so inclined (anonymous poster - I'm talking to you - you didn't think I had let this go did you?). Have fun.
