When I was writing my last discussion, I was thinking, If you can't laugh at yourself, then who can? Probably the thing everyone makes fun of me about is the fact that I have an absolutely horrible sense of direction. (as in maps and driving, not leading.) This is probably the main reason I don't drive. I would get lost in a cardboard box, as some of my friends say, lovingly. The other is that I blush frequently. I mean, get really red, especially when I'm singing karaoke. I still love it though. Or when I'm the center of attention. I definitely care too much about what peope think of me. Looking forward to everyone's responses. B

Awwwww Geez, where do I start...LOL I get made fun of for my laugh....it is silent....I simply lose my breath then cry...LOL (ocassionaly snort when I run out of breath) My hiccups are this itty bitty "hick up" I talk a little country from time to time, which totally goes against the grain of the citified girl I portray. So when I slip up with a Ya'll or ain't people giggle at me. ; ) I am just a tad clutsy.....so walking sometimes becomes entertainment to others. I "lose" things all the time! (wonder if this is early stages of altzeimers) i.e. the phone the us up to my ear as I say "i can't find my cell phone" Yeah, go ahead laugh at my expense.....but somebody has got to be ME!

O2bfree, We are very similar. I can't believe I found other things to be made fun of. I totally forgot some of those. The only ones that aren't like me would be the laugh (I'm having a hard time imagining that one.) and the Southern talk. I lived in TX for a year and I did my darnedest to not come back with an accent. I think darnedest came from my grandma. But I am definitely a klutz, and "lose" stuff daily. Cheers! B

I am the same when it comes to directions! I have POOR navigational skills!! i dont drive either! i'd be too busy looking for landmarks to watch the road in front of me and i would CRASH! I am very shy and turn red colours when i have to say something in front of more then one person! Some of my friends tease me cause they think my ears are big, i try to hide them in my hair. lol. that's not very nice of them is it?!

Hi Sissy, We are very much alike, and also liking the fantasy art. I think I am older than you, but age doesn't really matter to me. Especially with the driving thing. It wouldn't matter if I was 15, or 35, which I will be in April. Hard to believe 16 year olds can drive. I am also very worried about the other drivers out there. They can be crazy, and always on their phone! And no, that isn't very nice of your friends...you will have to tease them back! B

Probably I get teased a bit about my beliefs in spirit guides and my belief that feathers that are found in strange places are messages, but I amused to this now... :)
