Fun Facts

Everyone’s got some special talent, right?  Some fun fact about themselves that was discovered accidentally.  Perhaps while coincidentally spending hours in front of a mirror.  Some totally freakish special talent that no one ever even knew was “a thing.”  

For example, Sissy can make her two front teeth look like American Girl Doll teeth.  Like the little white nubbin teeth that show in between the painted-on lips of the Molly McIntire doll.  Who knew?  Who knew this was even something people could (or wanted) to do?  Not me and not me.  But it’s totally hilarious when you see it.  And?  I could see this talent serving her well in bars once she reaches her early 20’s.  It’s totes adorbs when combined with her freckled nose.  But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.  Gaah!  She’s only in seventh grade, ya creepers.

Sonny?  He can make a Dr. Seuss hand.  I can’t describe it any other way than to say he does this thing with his hand that makes it look like a slightly wonky hand in a drawing from a Dr. Seuss book.

But you see now what I mean when I say: Who knew?!?  Who even KNEW we were DOING slightly wonky hands from rhyming books.

Then there’s Hubby.  He can cross one eye at a time.  It almost makes you slightly queasy to see it and – if truth be told – it makes my head hurt a little watching him.

And me?  The crowning glory of all fun facts?!  And no, it’s not the say-the-Greek-alphabet-before-the-match-burns-your-fingers sort of thing.  And still no to the tie-a-cherry-stem-with-your-tongue thing.  All very popular at bars by the way, thus your weirdo comment about Sissy, I suppose.

I can make my right eye droopy like a broken baby doll’s.  Remember Big Baby in Toy Story 3?  Yep.  Just like that.  I look just like THAT when I do it.  ‘Cept with slightly more hair.  But I did the droopy eye thing first.  Take THAT, Big Baby, ya copy cat!

This all leads me to my final point.  Something I’ve suspected all along.  When it comes to voting on fun facts, the eyes have it.  Heh, heh, heh. 

Now, since it’s just us talking No, no!  Look at me.  Don’t look at any of those people.  Pay no attention to all those people.  Just look at me.  Just look right at me and my DROOPY RIGHT EYE.   Go ahead and tell me what YOUR fun fact is.  Big Baby Number One with luxurious brown hair is waiting…
