project31 - day 2

2:: What makes you uniquely YOU?

well now...if this question was 20 years ago I could answer you in an instant!! "Why, it would HAVE to be my hair that is so high it surpasses the limits of a school photo...of COURSE!!"

now if you didn't have the privileged of knowing me then...or of seeing pictures of those days of ol'...then simply close your eyes and picture a mullet...okay?!
Are you picturing it?? Good...
and now picture that mullet being cut out of hair likened to that of someone of African decent...
coarse, frizzy, and uncontrollable...
are you picturing it?! Okay...
now picture that mullet of coarse frizziness belonging to a little girl
whose Mother INSISTED
on it being BRUSHED!!!...yes, brushed!
I would most certainly think that THAT would be what made me "ME"...then!

{kinda like this...but B.E.T.T.E.R.!}
oh my word...that pic is embarrassing!!

But we're talking about what makes me unique now, and probably not so aesthetically based!

So...then...I guess I'd have to say what makes me "ME" would be my hair...still!
But more than that, I'm a rather determined person in many respects.
I am a...or try to be...loving wife and Muma.
I am a loyal friend.
I love to laugh...and hopefully make people laugh!
I have a very sarcastic sense of humour, which sometimes lands me in a puddle of trouble.
I tend to live life more in the "ebb" than the "flow."
I'm left-handed.
I have a degree in English, but don't spell too well and cannot tell you ONE thing about the 5432123 Shakespeare plays I studied!
People can't usually determine my ethnicity...and I enjoy hearing their assumptions.
But most importantly...what makes me ultimately ME are all the people who have entered and exited my life...teaching me a bit more about who I am and loving me while they do it!

...be blessed!
