Making Lists


At first I figured I really had nothing to write about. Then a friend at church said, “Have you ever made a list of things you find interesting about yourself?” She wasn’t speaking directly to me or the idea for an article, but her question triggered an idea. It took me a while and a little looking through a couple of other lists before I got a good idea of how to proceed. This is what I came up with for myself. The challenge is to see if you can create one of your own. Please feel free to use mine as an example. I am not afraid to cry at weddings, movies, funerals or from laughing to hard. I try to practice what I preach. I tell it as it is and not how I want it. I make people mad because I won’t kiss up to them. I like speaking to large groups of people. I like to preach the gospel when invited too. I am a show-off and a mild flirt. I do not read most newspapers because of their poor writing. I don’t watch the major TV news or CNN. I hate crossword puzzles; they’re a waste of my time. I enjoy researching information. I’m a good Uncle and a great Dad. I see things as they are rather than as they should be. I am not afraid to say what needs to be said. I am extremely loyal; even beyond reason. I wear tighty-whities. I refuse to play dumb. I am too hard on myself. I am too assertive to the point of being too aggressive. I am not afraid to tell a person that I love them. I am a Christ-follower. I know a little bit about a lot of stuff. I hate working on engines but love first aid work. I enjoy the company of women rather than men. I am capable of being very mean and vicious in a fight. I fight dirty and to win. I will kill if need be. I do not enjoy television sports. I am an alcoholic and I love the taste of beer. I can hold a grudge at times. I can also be very forgiving. I have strong legs and a quick temper. I do not forgive myself easily. I am an outdoor person. I like shopping at Wal-Mart. I am only one flavor; vanilla. There are other things I could put here, but for now this will do. Besides I have to leave something for later articles. Oh, and on one more thing, I don’t enjoy making lists.
