Some things are beyond our control. For example, character traits that we inherit from our parents. Name at least one thing that you got from your parents. I love you mom and dad but here goes...
Pros - From my dad I inherited his work ethics, he worked for Good Year for over 35 years and everyone respected him and gave him a great send off to show their apprecation. I also inherited his punctuality. My biggest pet peeve is tardiness. For God's sake people, can you just call if you're going to be late?
From my mom I inherited her writing skills, we both have books inside of us dying to see the light of day. She's been writing since "forever" and I've been writing since about 7th grade. We can seduce a pen and pad like no body's business (smile)
Cons - From my dad I inherited his need to have everything in it's place. I can drive myself up the wall because "it" has to be right at work and at home. I keep telling myself that it's ok, let it go but my evil twin, goes right behind me and puts things in their proper place. If you invite me over, I just may straighten up a bit. (pls don't take offense, my therapist says I'm almost curred)
From my mom I inherited the ability to lock myself in the house and not come up for air. I can be in the house all day or even all weekend with no communication from the outside world. I care not to talk on the telephone and visitors are optional. If you must come by, please call first. If it goes to voice mail, wait for me to return your call before your ring the doorbell.
Overall, I'm really a sweet girl!
