8 Random Things

PHD tagged me, so here goes.

1. My last name is Gonzalez and I cannot speak Spanish.
2. I was the MVP 3rd baseman in the 13 year old Babe Ruth World Series.
3. It took me 2 decades to kiss a girl for real.
4. Once, when I was a youth minister, I baptized a teenager who fainted during the baptism.
5. I have frequent and bizarre dreams and sometimes I think they are trying to tell me something.
6. There is nothing more satisfying to me than telling a story that makes someone laugh, think, or feel.
7. My children still think I am cool.
8. 6 years ago, while driving on I35 with my wife and two kids in Iowa, we had a blowout. One of the rear tires blew out and the van swerved violently and then rolled twice into the ditch. No one was injured - not even a scratch. Later that night, when I went to the van to retrieve our belongings I got a deep gash on my pinky finger from a broken piece of glass. It took four stitches.


Let's see, I will now tag the following people:

Chris,
Very intersting.
God bless you brother as you continue your studies and minister to those around you. Your blog has been such an encouragment in my life.

I must politely decline your generous invitation and encouragement to share more about myself than I actually know with far more people than those who actually want to know.

But thanks for thinking of me!

1.) I am a poop-head.

Hm. Just can't think of anything else, Lacey.

Well, Keith, I have a really hard time believing #1...or the fact that you can't come up w/anymore. In fact, I'd be willing to bet that #'s 2-8 would be truly captivating...probably nothing short of literary genius! But for whatever reason, you choose to hold out on us.

I didn't know about the baseball stat.
That must have been exciting.
And you definetely aren't an Arkansas native if your first real kiss was in your 20's. We have kissin' cousins to practice with.LOL
