|Tarol is the name I gave myself when I was little. I had difficulty pronouncing Carol, or the "K" sound, so I became Tarol. Incidentally, when I was even littler, I said my name was Ro-Ro. Only people who are related to me can call me by that! LOL!
My best friend in the 8th grade, Kristie, liked this nickname so much she became Tristie. She drew me pictures of ponies that she named Tarols. Don't ask... Silly 8th grade girlie stuff.
So the story goes...
I then found this on the internet. A tarol is a shallow-bodied snare drum designed for playing on the shoulder. Hmmmmm, not sure what that has to do with anything, but it's interesting nonetheless! I mean, who ever would have thought of playing a drum on your shoulder??
Also, a girl and a guy both named Tarol have signed my guestbook. Who would've thought?
Also, it's a good thing I married a man named Todd or I would've had to change his name! lol
Anyway, scroll down for some random pics of me, Tarol or Carol or whatever you want to call me, along with some friends and family :) And click here to find out more about me.
