Tag, You're It!

It's happened. I've been... TAGGED!!! *bum bum buuumm* My new "blog buddy" Rocki tagged me. As tagging goes, I have to share six secrets about myself. This should be fun (yeah right!)

1. I still sleep with stuffed animals, lots of stuffed animals. About 10-12 at a time! I admit that it's a little childish, but I can't sleep without my Beary-Bear. Please tell me I didn't just say Beary-Bear! (It's okay Beary-Bear I'll protect you!)

2. I don't like pie! Okay, so maybe it's not major, but come on... who doesn't like pie! I must be un-American or something.

3. I used to play the violin, but I stopped because it was too hard. But really don't blame me. It was that darn (clean version) violin! Every time I made the slightest wrong movement it made the most horrible, screechy sound on Earth! It haunts me I tell you, it haunts me!

4. I had a "Japanese Fighting Fish" named Samurai. Unfortunately while I was away, he died! To make it worse, when I came back I didn't even notice he was gone! And my Mom didn't even tell he was dead! Of course I don't blame her because I didn't notice him enough and I should've paid more attention to him.

5. The story of us coming to Lewistown is a sad one (for me!) Before we lived in Lewistown, we were in Orwigsburg. We had been living there for 3 years, longer than I've ever lived anywhere else before (besides New York). It was the best time in my life! I had like a dozen friends! Well, to try to make a long story short (read at two times speed) we had to move, and we had already been looking at the Lewistown real estate. I was extremely sad and filled with anguish. I've never really been able to get over it. THE END! *out of breath*

6. Last secret (finally!) Well, I'd like to finish with the biggest one of all. My mom and dad are divorced. I'll try not to go into details, but... they really didn't get along so they decided to get a divorce. Now I live at my Mom's and visit my Dad (who got married again, too). I know that they're happier that way but I'll always feel like something is missing. I'll never have that completely structured family feeling. It just isn't the same as a regular family.

Well, now it's time to announce my "tagees".

1. Edd (you better tell him Catherine)

2. Sakura

3. God (who else can I tag!)

4. And finally: Way-Way (you can't protect him any longer Rocki!)

Oh my gosh, little man!!! What a post you did! I have to start with Way Way.....THAT is hilarious :-D

I feel your pain in regards to your move. I had moved to San Diego sometime ago and eventually came back to broke my heart when I left and there is not a day that goes by that I wish I was back there.

I have a Japanese Fighting Fish! His name is Pepe Le Zoom (I know, stupid name for a fish). He just sits there, actually floats there, and eats. So you're not missing much ;-D

I admire your courage, Josh. You're physical age is young but you have a grown-up's mind set. if I say a bad word in front of you is that really saying it in front of a child? LOL!!!! hahahahah!! (*runs and ducks from Sharon and Damein*)

hmmmm... I just read the last line of Laura's comment...

Oh my dear sweet Laura... you see, when you have a son as mature as this, he knows all the words but chooses NOT to say them... hmmm... What a mature attitude, wouldn't you say?!? I wonder who's mouth would be washed out with soap first... huh, Laura? I'm sorry, I couldn't hear you..
perhaps the bubbles are interfering with your speech.

Laurie B. said...

Oh Josh you are SOOO wise and have such an open and loving heart! I'm going to send your blog to my son who is 25 years old. I had to get a divorce from his dad when he was little. It was hard but my husband, Joe was a great dad too! I'm sure the ALL love you!
I can't get over how well you write!!! Oh mamma you must be proud of this young man! And yes, he IS an old soul....Thank you SO Much for sharing your thoughts Josh!!!
PS. My son Andrew is getting married to a gal named Jessica and she doesn't like pie either! Her sister doesn't either!!! Me....I LOVE The stuff...but I like anchovies so go figure! *(ha, I think I just spelled anchovies wrong so better tell D he's not the only one!) With grats my new friend, Laurie B.

Catherine said...

I'll pass on your message to Edward!

I know what it's like to miss friends when you have to move away. I moved around quite a lot when I was a child and I always missed my old friends. However, new friends were always just around the corner. It didn't happen immediately but when it did I never looked back. :)

Angie Kelly Designs said...

Oh my, I'm always the last at the party! Way to go Josh, great "tag" post!!

Seems like everyone agrees with the "move" bit. I will also jump in. We moved around so much when I was young, you'd think I'd have become an expert at packing boxes. It was very difficult for me as I'm generally a very shy person. But now I'm settled and NO more boxes! Whoot!

Have a great day Josh! :o) You rock!

Josh said...

Thank you one and all! Thank you for your naming me wise. Thank you for sharing your tales. Thank you for your kind (and funny!) comments. You're all wonderful, and admirable, people!

AAAHAHAHAHAHA!!! SHARON!! I love it! I'm sorry I couldn't answer you last night...there were just TOO many bubbles ;-D

Rocki said...

Hey Josh my buddy ol' pal! You did an AWEsome job with your tag secrets. I'm very proud of you for being so honest. What a fine young man you are!

Way-Way is not old enough to have his own blog, so here are his secrets, from his own mouth:

1 - I didn't tear down Rocki's curtains - she did

2 - I didn't color all over Rocki's walls with crayons - she did

3 - Rocki sleeps with a blankie & sucks her thumb

4 - I never asked for a place setting at meal time. I can't eat food, I'm invisible!

5 - Rocki talks to herself - outloud - all the time.

6 - Rocki likes to (screams and runs from Rocki)

The end.

Josh...don't listen to WayWay...he used to punch me when I was younger and would poin the finger at Debi. Huh...funny...Way Way sure does look a lot like Debi!?!? LOL!!!!

That was cute, my sister!

Anonymous said...

Hmmmm, I would say that WayWay sounds like he's pointing the finger and awful lot... if he had one.

Rocki said...

Um, Laura - that makes it sound like I punched you and that is so not true. I'm sure that is not what you meant, but just want to clarify :)

Oh Sharon, WayWay doesn't have any fingers - he has little river rocks shaped like fingers ;)

Ooooooo.... riiiiiight... *backs up slowly*

Any Occasion Boutique said...

HAH!! No my sister never punched me out...just maimed me a time or two. OH, who am I kidding? Debi would never hurt a fly!!!

Sakura said...
