What Tree Did You Fall From?

I'm sure you've heard the saying "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree", which has something to do with how kids aren't so different from their parents. But does it matter what kind of tree you fall from? According to this chart that I found here, it does! This is a unique take on the usual "what's your sign?" perspective most people use to get to know others. So, what's your tree?

I was surprised, mine was mostly right about me. I'm an ELM TREE (the Noble-mindedness) - pleasant shape, tasteful clothes, modest demands, tends not to forgive mistakes, cheerful, likes to lead but not to obey, honest and faithful partner, likes making decisions for others, noble-minded, generous, good sense of humor, practical.

About the only thing there that's wrong is the pleasant shape. Unless round is a pleasant shape :lol:

I could change the title to correct my grammatical error, but I would first have to care. 😜

There are people who swear by this sort of thing to tell you about people, but I am not one of them. I just thought it would be a good bit of weird fun 😊

There's nothing about horney under the apple tree. As in:
Don't sit under the apple tree with anyone else but me.....

Dear Dork,

If you're looking for grammatical errors may I take this opportunity to direct your attention to this site; http://biblesearchers.typepad.com/destination-yisrael/2010/01/dutch-man-builds-replica-of-noahs-ark.html where you will find this jewel, "... will come a petting zoo, with baby lambs and chickens, and goats, and one camel."

Dumbfounded, you site Chaucer, Shakespeare, Dickens, and even the holy word but.... can we really trust these sources? I'm not 100% sure about the guys that did the bible but the other three are dead and can't be contacted (unless, of course, one of the girls fires up a cauldron) to verify that their use of the offending preposition was not just a use of poetic license.

*Gasp* You're right! All these writers used a preposition at the end of their sentences and now they are all dead!

Those grammar nazis are more determined than I realised! 🐛

cool nethie! i am the fig tree very strong, a bit self-willed, independent, does not allow contradiction or arguments, loves life, its family, children and animals, a bit of a social butterfly, good sense of humor, likes idleness and laziness, of practical talent and intelligence.
it reminds me of the chinese zodiac, the year of... and each one has an animal and a list of characteristics. Perhaps i can find it and follow up nethies post, then we can compare the signs. i'll look for it.

Apparently if you are born on the 29th of February, you don't belong to any tree. Presumably you are found under a gooseberry bush instead.

Patty, we've got a fig tree hanging over our back fence. Between the bugs, birds, and over ripe fruit the mess is unbelievable. Tell, me, dearheart, are you, like your arboreal sign a creator of great messes? 😛

Oh, BTW, years ago a friend of ours attempted to wear a fig leaf a' natural. The rash from the little hairs on the underside of the leaf lasted for a couple of weeks. :ahhh:

actually i thought it would be fairer to leave the discussion here on nethie's post. iwas born in the year of the dragon

People born in the Year of the Dragon are healthy, energetic, excitable, short-tempered, and stubborn. They are also honest, sensitive, brave, and they inspire confidence and trust. Dragon people are the most eccentric of any in the eastern zodiac. They neither borrow money nor make flowery speeches, but they tend to be soft-hearted which sometimes gives others an advantage over them. They are compatible with Rats, Snakes, Monkeys, and Roosters.
some things match, others don't. just fun to look at.

NO i don't make messes, i don't draw bugs, and i certainly don't cause a rash when touching a guy there! geesh! :lol:

I'm a Tiger, patty. And for the die-hard astrology fans, I'm a Capricorn. So... I am a Capricorn Tiger Elm Tree. Sounds like a bad band name. :lol:
Posted by Nethie on 08/17/10 at 12:35 PM
We're going to do this? Ok... Boar - Capricorn - Apple Tree These 3 actually seem to fit; both boar and goats like apples.
Posted by Expat47 in Athens, Greece on 08/17/10 at 12:43 PM
yes, but you are a chocolate loving american-greek!
Posted by Patty in Ohio, USA on 08/17/10 at 12:51 PM
Boar and goats like chocolate and apples can swim in a pool of melted chocolate and you can even flavor apples with choco....

This is my owner's computer... he suddenly left me here alone and is making mewling sounds over by the refrigerator. My odor detector is picking up a whiff of Hagen Daz Belgian Chocolate so I don't think he's going to be back anytime soon. Sorry.
