Competitive Bones

When God made me, He didn't give me the "competitive bone". I know for some people that is completely unbelievable. For them, competition is just a way of life. But for me, I could live every day of my life, for the rest of my life, without ever competing in any sporting event or game that requires a "go get 'em" attitude to win. Maybe it's because while I was growing up, I had such a bully of a brother and it was him that drove it out of me. Both of my parents have very strong over bearing personalities and maybe that had something to do with it. Or, maybe it was because I was the baby and I got "babied" a lot as a child. I don't know, maybe it's because I'm just a drag...
but that's not the way I see myself! I still like to be at events and I will even participate and play because I do enjoy the opportunity to spend time with people... and truthfully, I do enjoy winning. That is why no matter where I am, if it involves teams, I always want to be on my husband's team because he's just one of those guys who usually wins. And I have to be honest when I say that my husband has been known to "cheat for me" by not playing as good as he can just so I will win because he's just a DORK like that. But he's my Dork and I love him. I just don't want to play against him at Yahtzee... EVER... okay, maybe once in awhile, just not a lot. :0)

I never thought of myself as competative until recently. It's it just started showing up in hte past couple of years. I more competative against myself than other people though. I have to prove my abilities to myself. I think most of my "wars" are with my own mind. Anyway, like Tori, I like you just the way you are! :o)
And your hubby is one of the "good ones"!
