Eight things

It was undoubtedly Lefty who semi-tagged me to write eight (more) things about myself.

1. I have gone out with two different women who had lost children in car accidents, before I met them. I think - check that, I'm certain - that I didn't understand their deep-seated devastation at the time.

2. I recently finished listening to a disc that someone compiled of the 500 best songs. Of the 500, I downloaded 128. Of the 128, the vast majority I already own on vinyl - six by Chuck Berry, four by Little Richard, three each by Queen and Buddy Holly; I also grabbed Buddy Holly by Weezer, which I had never owned before.

3. I worked as a bank teller for less than a month in 1978. My first day solo, I was off by five cents, and I was required to spend an hour looking for it; not worth it.

4. I've received Hess trucks for Christmas the last seven years. I actually play with them on those rare occasions when neither my wife or daughter are home.

5. The sound of a power lawn mower, vacuum cleaner, or washing machine could put me to sleep, given the opportunity.

6. I've shaken Nelson Rockefeller's hand twice.

7. I used to be in a volleyball league. I served well.

8. I never took the SATs.

You never took the SATs? But you work in a library. I thought you weren't allowed to work in the hallowed halls of a library unless you went to college. Unless it's possible to go to college without SATs? Do elucidate!

S.- I DID go to college (New Paltz as an undergraduate); I just never took the SATs or the ACTs to get in. In fact, in retrospect, I don't know HOW I got in. Maybe it was the brilliant essay I wrote.

I DID take the GSATs to get into grad school at UAlbany.
