I've Been Tagged

This is going to be hard for me. I 've been tagged by Natalya, which means I have to supply seven little known facts about myself. Natalya's were wonderfully art based and Jane's were fun and quirky, so here are mine.

1. I can't swim. I went to a State Teacher's College (SUNY at Cortland) and passing swimming was a requirement for graduation. I took it for four years and passed it in my senior year with a pity (and pitiful) D. I still can't swim!

2. I love to travel and have been to 12 countries in the past five years, including China and Japan.

3. I can wrap my thumb and pinky around my wrist and overlap by 1/2 inch. Very skinny wrists.

4. In my next life I hope to play one sport reasonably well, have a good singing voice, and great legs, none of which I possess now.

5. I used to make most of my own clothes when I was much younger and thinner and couldn't get clothes to fit off the rack.

6. If I only had one food to live on for the rest of my life, it would be cookies, preferably good homemade.

7. I was voted best dressed on my college campus and was included in the Glamour Magazine Best Dressed College Women issue in 1962. That was with a lot of my home made clothes and borrowed sweaters from roommates.

Natalya took my tagees so I'm going to do what Jane did and say that if you are reading this, consider yourself tagged. Leave me a comment to let me know if you are going to do it. Have fun!
