The moment of truth!!!
- Contrary to what a whopping 2 people think, I HAVE eaten iguana. I was about 7 years old and we lived in Huajuapan de Leon, Oaxaca. Some of my dad's cop friends had killed one and cooked it in mole rojo. It was good wrapped in a tortilla.
- 9 people will be surprised to hear that I did witness a murder. Again, I was about 7 and we were in the same town in Mexico. I was drinking a soda that I'd just bought at the corner store and was about to make my way back to the church. There were a few of us there, including my sister and a few friends from church. We saw 2 drunk men talking to each other and staggering up the street. When they were about 5 yards away from us, one pulled out a knife and stabbed the other one to death. To this day, drunks, and even the smell of alcohol makes me shake.
- 11 people will find it interesting to know that I do indeed have a tattoo on my left shoulder blade. It's about 4 inches long and about 3/4 inch wide, if I recall correctly. I got it done last summer and it holds a real significance for me. It's my husband's name written in old, (vertical) Mongolian script. It's one of the craziest things I've ever done (that I don't regret doing, anyway).
- So the fib, my friends, is that Hetee and I, although we'd love to one day, have never auditioned for the Amazing Race. Every time we watch it we think, "We could do that!" So, maybe one day!
