Yes, I am Different!!!
I don't deny it, I am different from every one else.
I always have been, and always will be.
As a little girl I never wanted to play with dolls,
I wanted to be outdoors, playing with my
brother or riding horses.
When I would pretend, I was Bob
and my brother was Bill.
We were in the Calvary!
Or we were sailing a ship.
I would take my shirt off in the summer time
till my momma caught me and told me NO!!
I was not very old thank you very much
and I certainly didn't have anything to show.
I just wanted to be like my brother and be able
to run around with my shirt off.
Life was so unfair.
I started my period in 3rd grade!
I hated being a girl.
I didn't understand it,
I hurt, it smelled bad, and I hated it.
Life was so unfair.
Then I grew quickly for my age in school.
I was the only girl in 1st grade that got to play
basketball with the team.
So did Gary Joe Lester. He was my bud.
He was left handed.
I always sat by him
He and I were friends.
I grew tall very fast.
Then I stopped
and never grew UP any more.
When growing has to take place
and up is not happening
I guess you know where it is going to go...
I started menopause early in life too.
I hate it.
But I don't have monthly issues to deal with!!!
I have never been heavy till this time in my life.
I hate it!
Growing up I always hung out with the guys.
I was never boy crazy, they were just my friends.
I worked in a man's world.
Nearly 22 years worked with men.
Men are a lot easier to work with ...
how would I know, I have never worked with a bunch of women.
Men just don't seem to have the drama,
they don't care,
And I have just always been more comfortable around men.
So I am an ODD BALL.
I don't care.
Different is good.
That is what Arby's slogan was for years.
And I like Arby's.
All of this to simply tell you.
I use an Olympus camera!
Everyone else uses Nikon, or Cannon.
Yes they are good cameras.
So why did I get an Olympus?
Because that is what Megan talked me into buying
at my little camera shop in Enid.
She knows her stuff.
I really like her.
I trust her.
I like being the odd ball.
check it out!
I have the E-volt 500.
Of course it is not made any more!
I told you, I am the odd ball.
Well....there you have it.
My post for the day,
More than you needed to know.
And you now know I like Arby's
and I use an Olympus Camera.
Gee, you mean I could have done all of this
in just two sentences?
