What does it mean?
A follower recently wondered if I am roman numerals. And continued with pointing out that if I am roman numerals, I really butchered the rules!
Let's see... the X before the L would make it 40.... And the 40 then before the M would make that 960? And that IC... wouldn't that be 99? So 960 + 99 = 1,059.
So at long last I will uncover the meaning behind the secret code that is me...
The important note here is that I am very concerned about internet privacy and safety and really endeavor to guard mine in the best way my luddite self knows how. I know that showing pics of my kids and family and home kinda blows my cover a little... but no names, no specific places we frequent, stuff like that... so I can only go so far in exposing certain XLMIC mysteries!
It mostly started here. And it just got worse.
I used to row. While I am not by normal standards a small person (5'7", 125 lbs.), I was miniscule in the rowing world. Even in the smaller person category (lightweights), I was considered small (mostly because of my skinniness and just a little because of the height). So it was a huge joke. Large Marge. Get it?
And then my hilarious best friend got the wise idea to make that EXTRA Large Marge... because that summer I was EXTRA small... trying to be a coxswain and weighing as little as 105 lbs. Yes, scary-looking but it was only temporary... don't worry ;-) And because I was the coxswain (who is the person who gets to yell at everyone and tell them what to do while sitting in the boat and hopefully steering and motivating) I was "in charge." Hence, I became...
EXtra Large Marge In Charge...
but some of them took to just calling me XL.
They thought they were so funny.
