I got tagged

...and I dropped the ball.

Why, you ask? Well, here's the story. My dear friend Mary tagged me about a week or so ago. The tag meant that I needed to look at the fifth sentence in my 23rd post, meditate on it, and see if there was some hidden meaning. Well, that simple-sounding task stymied me. I mean, I don't have 23 posts.

I am a blog loser.

And so, knowing that I couldn't respond appropriately to the tag, I slunk into my hole (instead of madly writing ten more posts so that I could play tag--which I love to do) and hid for a week or so.

Now I'm crawling back out, and I think that even though I didn't play tag this time, I can play by starting a new game. Of which this time I will be the tagger, and perhaps someone will have pity on me and allow me to be the taggee again sometime.

So, Mary, Trish, and Jana...consider yourself tagged with Alpha-Meme:

ALPHA-MEME

A - Age you got your first real kiss: Thirteen or so. Freddy G., short, cute, teddy bear kind of guy serenaded me with Stairway to Heaven and then gave me a whopper of a kiss after.

God, Mary, look what you started. I don't even know you and Colleen's going to make me work because of you. lol

Colleen - I saw that big long nasty list on my blog but I'm ignoring it until I'm back from vacation. You'll just have to sit on pins and needles waiting for my answers. (ha)

In the meantime, I suppose we both need to do a better job on our blogging or no one will ever read us. Well, except my parents.

Later. Off to DARA.
