Reilly the Red's 25 Random Items

Same story, different kid. Here it goes.

1). I have piereced ears now. I'm six. Santa said I could have them. Mom said I couldn't til I was 13. Clearly Santa has jurisdiction. Yeah Santa!

2). My teacher says she loves my funky style. I'm the kinda chick who wears Vans sneakers, capri pants, and a shark tooth necklace. No Hello Kitty backpack for me. My backpack has a skull and crossbones on it. Come on! I'm Reilly the Red for crying out loud!

3). I'm a bit of a drama queen. I know it. I accept it. And I am unwilling to change.

4). I find a few people annoying. You know who you are.

5). My favorite tv show is American Idol. I only get to watch it if my behavior is exceptional. Thankfully, it is on twice a week for six months. Whew.

6). I just started to play chimes at my church. I love it.

7). I have a go-kart. It's red. And super cool.

8). I have a crush on a boy in my class.

9). I don't like dolls.

10). I have really great friends. Lots and lots of them. And I am so blessed because they are really GOOD people. My mom and dad haven't ever said, "Yeah, you can't play with So and So....".

11). I love to negotiate. Or as my mom says, "Attempt to negotiate." I like to play chess with my mom. In my head. It's a game. She still wins all the time. But one of these days, I'll get her.

12). I am totally a Daddy's girl. Which works out really well, since there is only one girl in the family.

13). My brother is my best friend. Tell him I said that, and you die.

14). I don't like bullies. Bullying is wrong. I wish it would stop. But I think I've figured out how to make it stop in my own life.

15). Tattling is acceptable under the following conditions: someone is bleeding, someone is on fire, or someone is being bullied. Any questions?

16). I tend to boss people around a little bit. Even grown ups. I can't help it if I know what's best for you! Shouldn't I tell you, especially if you don't know?

17). I am beautiful.

18). I am an absolute joy to be around, about 99.99999% of the time.

19). I am awesome at math. But my mom thinks I should be a lawyer. Because of my excellent negotiation skills, and my awesome taste in shoes.

20). I love flip-flops! Thank goodness I live in Florida!

21). I learned how to surf this summer. It was awesome.

22). Did I mention I have an awesome, red go-kart?

23). I love all my family, but I have a special affinity for my uncles. And a have a bunch of them, so it works out great.

24). I love shrimp. And lobster. And crab legs. And oysters. For some reason, my parents keep telling me that I need to get a job if I want to eat seafood. I don't get it.

25). My mom says I was a miracle baby. I don't know, I'm just me. It's who I am.


  1. Sounds like yo have TWO awesome miracle children. Reilly sounds like a hoot! You are a lucky woman.

  2. Oh, I wish I had a little girl like that one! Love it! She sounds amazing!
