Have you ever sat around in a group circle and realized that all conversation around you has ceased? And then there is one person who tries to fill the silence with an awkward story or rather unfunny joke? Which rarely elicits more than a one syllable laugh. Yeah, that person is me.
So I figure that I might as well take my material to a more friendly venue. So here I am!
Several things you should know:
- I visited my 7th continent in 2012. And followed up with trips to India and the UK. Next we are planning trips to HI and then to the Galapagos Islands.
- I’m married to my wonderful husband who puts up with me even when I whine and get upset about crazy things, like having my dirty clothes gone through piece by piece by customs agents in Washington DC. He also has all 7 continents in one passport. But then the passport expired. And now he has no claim to fame.
- I have a dog named Kizzy and a new puppy named Kazoo. We named her Kazoo because she sounds like a kazoo. I also happen to know from experience that penguins make the same noises – if you need a real-life impression.
Anyway, their social lives are better than mine. They have someone who walks them and they ride the short bus to doggie daycare where they play with all of their friends and come home exhausted. They also have someone who delivers fresh grass to our balcony every week. None of these people are me.
- Pluto is a planet. No matter what you may have heard.
