"There's a road in Oklahoma, Straighter than a preacher, longer than amemory"

Today begins day one of my "Blog Everyday in May" journey. I challenge y'all to follow along.
The story of my life: in 250 words. 
"The story of your life in 250 words or less (or one paragraph... no one will be coutning you words... probably)"


I was born two months early at four pounds and thirteen ounces, in Carrollton, Texas on September 29th 1987. Don't you wish you got to call yourself a miracle baby. Comes in handy when you're little and in trouble. My sister was born a month early. You see, It was a couple days before Christmas and I was mad that Momma said I couldn't have the Christmas Cookies till after supper. I was having none of that. I threw a fit, kicked my Momma. Next thing I knew she's was in labor and I had a little sister sooner than expected. Don't y'all know I still didn't get those dagum cookies! At, fifteen I was diagnosed with Scoliosis. I waited months to have the surgery so it wouldn't interfere with Marching Band. Don’t you wish your parents let you make life altering decision at 15. I had the surgery when I was 16. Before they wheeled me into the operation I told Momma, “ I could be paralyzed” And that boys and girls is how I got my first cellphone at sixteen. But it’s all good now cause I DO NOT go off in metal detectors. At seventeen I watched my daddy die of a heart-attack on the living room floor while my Momma was on the phone with 911. Y’all wanna know the only thing runnin’ through my head, “Guess that means I ain’t grounded anymore and can watch 7th heaven tonight!” And that’s the highlights, minus two, folks!

  11. You, my friend, are so fabulous! Where have you been all my life!? Little Miss Manipulator... Just like a southern girl (we can't help what we're taught).

    I can relate to the story of your dad. It's an outer body experience to watch a parent pass away right in front of you. :(

    On a lighter note... Let's be friends!!!! :))
