I was an English major.
During college, I worked a short time at TGIFridays and had a lot of “flair” (buttons).
My appendix burst in the 90s and I almost died. Biggest memory after surgery is laughing uncontrollably while watching a David Letterman episode in the hospital bed. In the episode, Dave uses an earpiece to direct Rupert Jee to get multiple ice-cream scoops on one cone. For some reason, I found that hilarious and could not stop laughing (hurt like crazy and I had to keep pressing the “pain” button). Here is the clip (scroll to minute 5:00)
I’m an introvert. Over the past twenty years, I’ve taken Dale Carnegie, Toastmasters, Speaker Bootcamp, Assertiveness Training and even an Improv Comedy class. I am still an introvert.*
I have a closetful of leather. That’s right, I’m a weekend warrior! I slap on my chaps and hang on for dear life on the back of my husband’s motorcycle. Here is a pic from our recent trip to the Blue Ridge Parkway.
