My family seems rather ordinary on the outside. Or maybe not, depending on your definition of ordinary. So just for fun on this chilly January day, I offer five random facts about my family. They might help you get to know us a bit better.
You might decide we’re the weird family down the block.
You might decide we have more in common than you originally thought.
ONE – The symbol of happiness and family life is a rubber chicken.
TWO – We have a pet turtle named Yogurt. And Thing One is striving for us to have a pet tiger named Pancake. Our dog, surprisingly, is not named after food.
THREE – One of us does not like fruit. Another does not like seafood. And the third hates pasta.
FOUR – Every year for Christmas, we watch Trading Places — with Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd. We never watch The Polar Express or It’s a Wonderful Life.
FIVE – Our favorite television show is M*A*S*H. I seriously consider sharing that show with my kids as part of my legacy as a parent.
What’s a random and little known fact about your family? Do share in the comments. I’d love to hear them!
