5 things you don't know about me

1) I used to have a pretty good singing voice before the Army.

2) I have a horrible raging temper (but it's gotten better.)

3) I cry easily at movies.

4) I used to have a friendly relationship with a black rhinoceros, and she'd let me pet her on her prehensile upper lip nearly every afternoon.

5) I never proposed to MizBubs.

You never proposed to MizBubs? Did she propose to you? Did you get drunk in Vegas and elope?

Tell me more!

She proposed to me, on a long distance phone call, while I was in Equador on an Army National Guard training exercise. We'd had our worst breakup in the course of a 5 year long off/on relationship, and she spent about 4 months not speaking to me. Which was rough, because we had the same bunch of friends and hangouts. Our friends all took sides, it was ugly. Well, we just started to speak again before I left for Equador. She said something like, "look, if we're going to get back together we'd better really mean it. We'd better get married." And I said yes. And then our call got disconnected and I spent the next week wondering if it really happened.

Guess she was serious.

Ten, she was serious. Some time, if you get a couple drinks in me, I'll tell you about the knife stuck in my bedroom door , with my favorite cassette tape unspooled and draped around the blade of the knife, my engagement ring suspended in the tangle.

MizBubs is an impressive woman.

Hey Bubs, just let loose with that raging temper any time. We'd love to see it. Feel free to use it in the comments section of my blog - I'm used to it.

You are the rhino aren't you Bubs? That's a list!

No, the rhino's name was Marcia. Or Marsha, I never got the spelling. She lived at Lincoln Park Zoo back in 1984.
