Five Fun Facts

Five Fun Facts about Carie Juettner:

  1. I was born on Halloween. People tell me that explains a lot.
  2. I have spatial sequence synesthesia, which means that I see the IMGdays of the week, the months of the year, and number lines as occupying a physical space. You can read more about this form of synesthesia here.
  3. I have read The Outsiders, by S.E. Hinton, forty-eight times. I have entire sections of the book memorized.
  4. When I was in the seventh grade, a tarantula fell on my shoulder. His presence was unexpected and unwelcome and resulted in his death, which I now regret. These days, I love all animals and insects, even the creepy ones.
  5. I love mail, poetry, and stickers. But what I really love is when they all come together. If you contact me with the subject “SEND ME SOME SNAIL MAIL POETRY” and include your name and a physical address or P.O. box, I will send you a random poem, in the mail, decorated with stickers. Think I’m kidding? Try me.
