If asked to describe myself in one word, I'd give the same response my two sisters did: No.Way.
There's no one word right enough, big enough, specific enough, accurate enough to be "the one," the "one" that supercedes all the others.
I got an email from an acquaitance that read: "Describe ME in one word... just one single word. Send it to me and to me only. Then send this message to all your friends and see how many strange and interesting things they say about you. This is really fun. Here's how to play - 1. Hit the reply key and send me my word. 2. Then return to the message and forward it to your friends (including me) and see what people say about you when limited to one word!!!"
So I did it. I sent it. I sent it to my sisters, to my cousin, to my nieces and nephew, to the parents of my best friend, to two of my best friends, to my neighbor, and to several other dear and close friends.
Here's what I got back so far (and I've only heard from 5 people):
- 2 non-responses from my sisters: they argue they can't choose just one word!
It's amazing what people think of me. What the first word is that they'd use to describe me. I will not comment on each and every one, but I'm flattered and amazed already, and I've only read three words!!!
This is most definitely a scrapbook page in the making: the words and the people that make me me.
I can't wait!!!
