As it’s the end of the year, I’ve been reflecting a bit on the happenings in my life across 2012. Overall, from my vantage point up here in the middle-aged cheap seats, it was a pretty good year. We did lose too many good friends as they left this world to move on to their next adventures. Reaching the mid-life marker seems to bring with it the reality that some of us leave this world too soon.
2012 also seemed to bring many opportunities for me to do or say things that I never thought I would ever, well, do or say. Now, I’m famous for putting my crazy, southern, Irish foot in my mouth. It’s really the law of averages: when you talk as much as I do; it’s only a matter of time before something just comes out wrong. But this is a little different: these are things that I did or said over the past year that were unique to 2012.
Therefore, following in the footsteps of the great David Letterman, here is Kimba’s List of Top Ten Surprising Things She Said in 2012:
Number Ten: “Can I get a re-tweet (RT)?”
Number Nine: “Where’s the cat?” (spoken by previous member of Team Canine).
Number Eight: “Oh, I see, I’m not pregnant; it’s just menopause.”
Number Seven: “Dammit, where are my readers?”
Number Six: “You know, I’m OK with the term ‘cougar.’ ”
Number Five: “Yep, just sent off the last tuition payment to Penn State.”
Number Four: “Would you take a dollar for this glass measuring cup?” (uttered at every estate sale in the DC metro area).
Number Three: “I look great…. for sixty” (modified from my previous “I look great… for fifty” mantra).
Number Two: “Ryan Reynolds may actually be hotter than George Clooney.”
And the Number One Surprising Thing Kimba Said in 2012: “What do I do? Well, I’m a writer.”
Cheers – see you up in the middle-aged cheap seats in 2013,
