AKB over at the new life I lead tagged me to reveal 8 things about myself. I talk so much about our finances, that I thought I would reveal other tidbits.
1.) I have had an iguana as a pet. We were his third owner. The first owner neglected/abused him, the second owner treated him well. When we got him he was still fairly wild. While I was pregnant we decided to give him away to someone else because I was afraid to have him around my son because he could whip around his tail and really hurt you.
2.) I have had rats as pets. It started off with two boys (according to the pet store). Actually, they were boy and girl and two rats turned into 16. We were able to find homes for 6 so we had 10 rats for quite some time. Believe it or not, they are great pets.
3.) My favorite pet was a guinea pig that was named Kitty. She was a doll and I loved the way she squeaked when the lettuce bag rustled. Unfortunately, I started having severe allergic reactions to something and upon testing I found it I was highly allergic to guinea pigs. I had to give her (and another one I had) away.
4.) If I had the money to buy any toy that I wanted, I would want to buy one of those radio controlled helicopters. There’s a cheaper one at Walmart that is 6 directional and the last time I went there was only one left. I always think of hiding it on the shelves so maybe someday I can buy it.
5.) If you’ve ever watched Big Top Pee-Wee, you’ll know what I’m talking about when I say I want one of those harness things in my backyard (that circus performers use to practice on). It looks like so much fun!
6.) I am afraid of heights but I like airplane rides. It has to be small planes though, not larger planes. I’ve only been on a plane twice in my life.
7.) When I’m older and well-off financially, I’d love to get an ultralight. I saw one once at our mall on display and I couldn’t take my eyes off of it. One of these days…
8.) I love to drive hilly roads where you can drive just fast enough (but not speed) to get that weightlessness feeling in your tummy. I have a road by me that is perfect for that and I have been known to go over a certain section, turn around, and go back and do it again.
Next up, I get to tag someone, and I am going to tag Basil and Bianca. Those two debt-fighters crack me up so their answers should be interesting.
