Did you know that I am a swimmer & a diver!
Those of you who know me personally (not virtually) will know that neither of these are true. However, there was apparently some misunderstanding while at a party shortly after we moved here when I was explaining that I almost drowned at an Auburn University Intramural Swim Meet. Apparently the words… DROWNED & INTRAMURAL weren’t heard and a friend has been telling others that I swam for Auburn. It actually makes me laugh pretty hard.
While I can do neither in the water with any skill whatsoever; I can do both in the trash with some agility. Wednesday is curb-side pick up day in our town and you can always find a treasure or 4. These I can’t take complete credit for… but I do have a dear friend (who’s husband is a doctor & was a tad too intimidated to be seen scrounging through her neighbors trash) who called to inform me that her neighbor was throwing out some really great wicker chairs I needed to come look. So, me in my pregnant state with her help (thankfully she’s not too good to be “seen” with a “diver”) loaded up all we could fit in the car and off I went! Here’s what I found… and I hope to “clean ’em up” soon. While they’re not in “mint” condition, I can certainly get at least 3 or 4 more years out of ’em. Unfortunately my husband isn’t near as thrilled about my find as I am… men, can’t they get excited about a little trash!? Now what would he have thought if I had actually spent our money on them!? Then he’d be excited that they were free. I should have first told him I paid $50 a piece for them… then maybe he would have been more excited! 🙂
