Two weeks ago at my first class of the new semester, each of us had to say one interesting thing about ourselves. Now, I'd like to think I'm an interesting person, but under pressure I couldn't think of anything to say other than that my preferred highlighter color is orange or that I like to sit within the first ten rows at the movies.
It made me think of those painfully, but always endearing, interviews that Alex Trebek gives during Jeopardy! Whenever I hear another story about how a contestant's dog does yoga with her or that another contestant was named after a labor strike (these are true stories), I always think, "Is that the most interesting story of themselves that they could think to share on national television? Really?"
I ended up telling the class that I'm going to London this summer! It's high time I made it back over to Europe. I'm leaving for a week, end of June, and I simply cannot wait! The thing I'm most looking forward to? Seeing the Elgin Marbles at the British Museum. I get "emotional" just thinking about it!
So, you have two minutes to tell me an interesting thing about yourself that I don't know. Leave a comment!
