Last week’s Three Things was fun.
The one I’ve chosen for this week is an even tighter spin off from my Freebie-for-Subscribing, Seven Things I Wish I Knew Before I Joined the Peace Corps. (see it up there in the top banner?)
I realize that not everyone joins the Peace Corps. But we’ve all joined SOMETHING at some time. We’re Americans, after all. (Well, most of us). Did you know that as far back as de Tocqueville’s Democracy in America (1835), we Americans were pegged as joiners? More so than Europeans, any way.
Yup, our dedication to volunteerism impressed Alexis.
So, think of some group you’ve joined, once upon a time. Then let us know:
THREE THINGS I Wish I Knew Before I Joined _____
Here are some suggestions, to start you off.
- the Peace Corps
- the armed forces (enlistees only; no draftees)
- my neighborhood pickup softball league
- the League of Women Voters
- the Book of the Month Club
- AA (just kidding)
- what else have you got?
I’m looking forward to seeing how many different places we’ve joined, not just what you’ve learned since.
(THIS COULD ALSO BE CALLED THREE THINGS I DIDN’T KNOW BEFORE I JOINED ….)
Mine? Well, they’re all listed in that little freebie I keep pushing your way.
