And, though I do love Word Sharks, I have to admit, in my heart beats a dragon.
Though the award carries with it a certain responsibility (name other dragon lovers, share five things that people might not know about me), I don’t like rules. The only other true dragon lover I know is Shawn. And I don’t really like to talk about me.
Shawn knows I love dragons – that’s one of the reasons we were drawn to each other. Another reason…Shawn is a fantastic writer, and I figured if I glommed onto her, I might learn something. Same thing goes for editing – she’s a more skilled editor than I am.
I am not only a dragon lover, I’m a dragon collector. Throughout this post you will see the general dragon theme of my new post-flood apartment. Yes, here there be dragons. Lots of them.
As I said, I don’t like to talk about myself. Not much.
But did you know that I learned American Sign Language while I worked at the New Mexico School for the Deaf?
Did you know that, at 57 y.o., I started to take tap dance lessons? Loving it!
Did you know that I have one entire bookshelf dedicated to foreign language dictionaries and books about writing and editing and grammar and punctuation?
Did you know that I have a collection of limericks (given to me by my beloved Aunt Ang) so raunchy I can’t read them in mixed company? Heck, I can’t even read them out loud in my own company, they are that raunchy. Though Ang and I used to read them to each other while we cackled like demented hens.
Did you know that Mom and Ang harped and harped on me to “Look it up?”
Enough about me.
Shawn’s wonderful books, The Dragon Keeper’s Handbook and Dragons for Beginners, can be found at Llewellyn.com.
I thank Shawn for the honor of being her #1 Dragon Lover. And I apologize for not following the rules to the letter.
