Day 3102: Tell me something I don’t know

Tell me something I don’t know, preferably about you.

I’ll tell you something YOU don’t know: I’ve been serving on the Board of Directors of the Northeastern Society for Group Psychotherapy for eight years, which is ALL of my 60s, and tomorrow is my last day!

I’ll tell you something else you don’t know — I’ve been listening to the original cast album of In the Heights and I love this song:

Am I telling you something you don’t know in the images I captured yesterday?

Tell me something I don’t (or do) know in the comments section below.

I am grateful for what I know, for what I might know in the future, and for YOU.

  1. I did not know about Chocolove XO, Ann, and now I must find and taste test, thank you.

  2. I thought you may not know that I met bozo the clown twice, and as much as I fear clowns, he was decent. I’m happy for you to have one thing off your plate as you step down from the board, and I thought you might like to know that I’m sure it will be hard to replace you. at the end of the year at school, I was asked to co-chair a couple of committees (due to my length of service and understanding of how things work), but i reacted by blurting out, “no!, I’m trying to quit them actually!” apparently I know that I’m ready to lessen the load as well.

    • I didn’t even know that Bozo the Clown was a person, not a cartoon or comic! You certainly told me something that I did not know

    • Thanks for telling me all these things I didn’t know and I did know how kind you are!

  3. Jonas Salk polio vaccine accomplishment took place in Pittsburgh

  4. I didn’t even know that Bozo the Clown was a person, not a cartoon or comic! You certainly told me something that I did not know

  5. I was in the middle of writing a response to this and I lost it somehow. Drat.

    I do not know why my response to Beth’s comment about Bozo the Clown posted twice as a comment, but I do know that WordPress will always be a little bit mysterious to me.

    I have read every one of your “Years of Living Non-Judgmentally” blog posts, even when I couldn’t think of anything worthy to write in reply. I don’t know if that is something that you know or don’t know.

    One thing you might not know is that I learned from your blog that Americans never spell judgmentally with the spelling that I was taught to use in Canada: judgementally. Both spellings have become common in Canada over the years as we have adopted more American spellings, but I had been unaware of that one. I have trained myself to spell “judgmentally” with your chosen spelling when I am writing about your blog, and often go back to remove the “e” if I am typing, rather than dictating, my response. (My phone’s spell checker seems to automatically use American spellings.) Every time I do that, I remember the conversation you and I had about that in the comments section of one of your posts.

    I hope that you are having some wonderful time with Aaron and that you have figured out a strategy to fix your shower.

    A long time ago I met Julia Child at the airport.. We both flying TWA . Does anyone remember that airline?

    • I met Julia Child at the Exeter Theater in Boston before the showing of “Pumping Iron” that starred a young unknown named Arnold Schwarzenegger. I wonder if anybody remembers that theater.

      • puella33

        The name of the theatre sounds familiar.

  7. I don’t know what to tell you about myself that you don’t know. Once during an improv game I was supposed to yell the first thing that came into my head at another person and all I could come up with was, “I don’t know what to say!” She yelled back, “Yes you do!” And I yelled, “No I don’t!” We had a very lengthy argument about whether I knew what to say. Perhaps I should just quote Wendy Cope’s poem “Loss” in its entirety:

    The day he moved out was terrible –
    That evening she went through hell.
    His absence wasn’t a problem
    But the corkscrew had gone as well.

  8. I really hope that relinquishing your board position and all the responsibility that has come with it will result in some time to nurture your many talents, Ann. Good for you. Something you don’t know about me is that in 1971 I appeared as one college student, among many, in a photo spread in Life Magazine. 🙂 I’ll tell more sometime.

    With the MLB All-Star game coming up in a couple of weeks, I was recalling that I’ve attended 2 MLB ASG in person, which you might not know about me. My sister and I and 2 friends went in 1976 in Philadelphia, where we had standing room tickets directly behind home plate, though three balconies up, at the now defunct Veterans Stadium. And at Fenway Park in 1999, sitting in the bleachers with my husband, barely able to see the action but enjoying every minute of the ambience.

  10. Something that you may not know is that I sometimes wish my life were like an open book, so I wouldn’t have explaining, reasons, nor rationalizations to make, but I have to turn pages, just like everyone else.
