10 Things Most People Don’t Know About Me:
By Michele Summers
1. I’m a really good cook and make healthy meals for my family, but what you don’t know is: I’m a huge junk food fan…we’re talking French fries, cheeseburgers, potato chips, Twinkies, Mint Oreos, cotton candy, caramel apples, Now & Laters…are you seeing a pattern? For the sake of my kids’ health, I have to pretend to abhor those foods. (It’s a killer)

2. Love to travel, but hate traveling. I get terribly carsick in cars, airplanes, boats…you name it. In a car, I have to drive or take Dramamine and sleep. On a plane, I have to sit near the front in a window seat and fall asleep immediately. Turbulence terrifies me, because I’m afraid of crashing and dying while getting sick. And on boats, I have to be on the deck, looking at the horizon at all times…a category 4 hurricane could be blowing and it wouldn’t matter.

3. Pre-children, I ran 5-miles every day, seven days a week…rain or shine, for over eight years. I entered dozens of 10k’s. Today, the thought of running five miles makes my knees hurt. No more running, instead, lots of walking and tennis.

4. I’ve never seen Star Wars or any of its sequels/prequels or whatever.

5. I never wear the color red. Not big on it in my interiors, either. But I love other warm colors like orange, coral, mango, and pink.

6. My first real job was dental assistant in my dad’s orthodontic office. I sucked at it and never saw a paycheck. (Hmmm, wonder why.) After that, I made darn sure I always had a summer job and one right after graduation, because I never wanted to work there again.

7. I have a secret crush on Bobby Flay. Well, not so secret and my kids are horrified I might start stalking him.

8. I’m terrified of roller coasters. Never recovered from riding one with my older siblings at age six.

9. I’m obsessed with notebooks and notepads…always trying to find the perfect one.

10. I’m a list maker. Like OCD list maker. Always have a To Do list near me and one in every room in my house, including the bathroom. I make lists for my family members which they detest and consistently ignore. I make lists for my lists…hence the obsession with notepads. And don’t get me started on colorful Post-its….sorry, I need to make another list.

Thanks for having me…this exercise was fun!
