Five unknown aspects about me


1.

I cannot drink coffee. yes, the black, vile stuff. One slight drop in my system and I go giddy, nauseous, as if poisoned. I do not know why. Beer and vodka is okay.

2.

I kept a baby python as a pet during my army days. An empty ammo box was its cot, and i fed it eggs from the mess hall. It had no name, i just called it "snake". A few weeks after I found it, it wandered off one night never to return. I guessed it went looking for its mate.

3.

In secondary one in school, my history teacher read to our class an essay on "How fire was discovered." He said that essays should be written this way, interesting, imaginative, yet logical and complimented the writer for a good job. Ahem, I'm that writer. Guess my writing career took off from there.

4.

I wanted to be a journalist, but ended up working in telecommunications, where the only things I write are boring reports, excuses, angry emails and subtle threats.

5.

Sorry about the coffee. Beer and vodka are OK, except for breakfast. NO SNAKES, except you. You aren't really a snake are you??
