Genes...Memes...Whatever

No matter where you roam among the blogs these days, you're going to run across a meme. What the heck is that? Well, it comes from an idea that pieces of culture can be passed---similar to how genes are passed---but without all the biochemistry. Maybe more like a cold? :)

Doc Porter over in Seattle "tagged" me with a recent meme. The instructions are
  1. Go into your archives.
  2. Find your 23rd post.
  3. Post the fifth sentence (or closest to it).
  4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions.
  5. Tag five other people to do the same thing.

My 23rd post was on the 9th of February, 2005...just five short days after having my gallbladder removed and acquiring a nasty infection in the incision that was made at my navel. On the 9th, I had been in to see the surgeon, who lanced my bellybutton and started a drain that would last for weeks. (TMI yet?) So my fifth sentence was "Save that particular curse for only the worst of your enemies."

Trust me, a year later and I'm still thinking that having someone de-pus your navel is a bad thing.

I'm supposed to tag five others. I'm going to tag two who are new(er) edubloggers. Perhaps this might get you to stop by their place and encourage them. Who knows what they'll be blogging about in a year. If anyone else would like to be tagged, just let me know. Queen of the Cottage and Not Quite Grown Up, you're It!

I have a dilemma! I've only posted 13 times. How sad is that?

I have another blog that's not related to teaching, so that's where I pulled my sentence. :)
