I never do memes. I don’t know how to pronounce the word or how to explain it in non-technical metaphors. Unless, of course, a meme is like playing idea tag, where you have to answer a question before you can tag someone else. Or it’s like an ice breaker at a party (which I don’t like).
5 things I was doing 10 years ago:
- going to soccer games for an 11-year-old son who still wanted to be a professional soccer player. (Now he is a writer. About sports).
- learning how to be 40. (never figured it out. Gave up after 10 years.)
- dealing with a daughter in second grade. (actually, she was dealing with second grade. She spent the next 6 years dealing with school. And then she got to high school and figured it all out.)
- helping figure out how to keep college students in college. (I gave up.)
- having no clue that I would be a pastor now. (Nope. No idea at all.)
