xeno·bi·otic (zen′ō bī ät′ik, zē′nō-)

1. designating or of a chemical substance that is foreign, and usually harmful, to living organisms
Well, you know I have kids so I don't think I can possibly be xenobiotic... I wonder if this word could be used instead of antibiotic or antiseptic? Imagine a "new" hand sanitizer that touts itself as XENOBIOTIC! I'd buy it. :)

Which to tackle first? Technically, I guess, I AM made mostly of water. But, I’m not normally tearful, weak, soggy (though I am currently pretty soft), or giving off any kind of morbid discharge. *gag*

va•ca•tioner (-ər)

I wish. I think the last real vacation I went on was my honeymoon. Four years ago.

Vacationer... only when I visit Lala Land in my dreams.

um•bra•geous (um brā′jəs)

1. easily offended
2. giving shade; shady
As for easily offended, no, not me. I’ll talk about pretty much anything with anyone at any time. You’d have to go out of your way to offend me and it would probably have to involve a direct hit to my family.

Occasionally I provide shade for one of my little ones, but only if they’re in direct sun. :) I guess that makes me partially umbrageous after all.

taci•turn (tas′ə tʉrn′)

1. almost always silent; not liking to talk; uncommunicative
LOL! No.

I don’t think one person who’s known me for more than 5 minutes would refer to me as taciturn. Seriously. I love to talk with people and find out who & what they are. I love to tell & hear stories and I truly love when I find things in common with someone else. Drives my husband batty sometimes!

sales•man (sālz′mən)

1. a salesperson, esp. one employed as a traveling agent for a manufacturer, distributor, etc.
Um, the stuff I make is really cool, I promise. Very unique & designer. And high-end, don’t forget high-end.

Lord, I’m NOT a salesman… I used to work in Sales Operations before motherhood struck and just watching the sales guys/gals used to make me kind of nauseous. I’m just not good at it. I’m not a schmoozer and I can’t sell just for the heck of it. Plus, I’m bad with names and that’s pretty much a deal breaker!
