That I almost became a chef.

(Thankfully, in my senior year of high school, somebody actually taught me that math relates to finance, and well, I like money!)

I almost joined ROTC in college. I even took a couple
classes (auditing) to see what it would be like.

Saluki, whoever on this board suggested we watch Idiocracy has my profound thanks! "I like money" has been used to death in our house ever since!

Something no one knows about me--I can't swim! I can stay alive in the water,but it ain't pretty! I am PADI certified to dive, though!

Well thats a thread stopper...

I wrote a published (and not vanity) book of poetry under a pseudonym about 14 years ago.

Never told a soul about it. Did have one gf tell me that I swiped a poem from a published writer...

Perhaps you could splain' that a bit.

As I recall the Civil War ended in 1864, so if your father fired the last shot as an infant and later conceived you at the age of 100 then that would be the only explanation considering that you are only 43. That scenario seems highly unlikely.

Contrary to urban legend...

Re: Share One Fact About You Almost Noone Knows............

I cleaned out my closets quite ruthlessly last summer and threw out almost everything, because I'm planning to move to another state when I retire. A lot of people know that, but what they don't know is....

...that despite my distaste for nostalgia I kept my 9th grade term paper, written in 1961. The title is "Modes in Ancient Greek Music". I have no interest in ancient Greek music now, but for some reason I kept it.

I saved an old lady from her burning house and then left the scene when the fire department arrived and I knew she was safely in their care. The report in the local paper said something to the effect "anonymous man saves senior."
