I have been sitting here unsure what to write tonight so a friend asked me some questions to answer thinking it might be interesting, I agreed...here goes.
Did you ever run away as a child?
As a matter of fact yes, once, when I was 10 maybe. I was being babysat by some family friends children and we decided to run away. Now apparently this was my idea, I don't really know, but I am not surprised. We walked on the back roads (we ran away from a farm house) and one of the kids that was with us (Lee) swallowed a grasshopper that jumped into his mouth. He became very ill and his sister carried him. We were picked up not too long after by a parent (I think) I don't really remember. All I do remember was thinking that I would work to make money by washing dishes, and I remember my mom hugging me telling me she loved me after I was returned home.
Do you believe aliens have visited earth?
I do believe that we are not alone in this vast universe. I think the idea of visitors is kind of cool, but I myself have never seen anything. Nor have I been probed in any way. I also do believe in the Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot.
When was the last time you peed your pants?
You are a jerk for asking this, cause you know exactly when. It was last week when I was laughing so hard at something you said that you made me pee....You Bi#ch!! (Listen, I have had kids, it happens)
What are the top 3 songs for the sound track of your life?
Extreme: More Than Words
Sara Bareilles: Gravity
The Fray: You Found Me
Pink: So What
ONLY 3...I'm sorry, my life has a HUGE soundtrack!
Baseball or Golf? Which is cooler?
Both are equal. Baseball and I have had a long deep love affair. Golf is something that makes me think of my dad. My dad can kick your dads ass at golf. Anytime anywhere and I would put money on it with zero hesitation. He is that good!
If you could be any wild animal what would you be and why?
This is a weird question. I am going to just say nothing here. But I was born in the year of the horse, so I guess maybe that if I HAD to pick something....
Coke or Pepsi?
Coke Zero, diet Pepsi and Pepsi max. I dabble in a bit of both.
What is the most frightening place you've ever been?
The day I found myself alone. Truly alone, parenting 4 children by myself with no idea how I was going to provide for them. The most frightened I have ever been.
What is the worst movie you have ever seen?
My Dad rented The Man Of Bronze once and it was horrible. The acting was atrocious and story was weak. Still, to this day, it's the worst I have ever seen. That and Beastly.
If you had to give up one of your senses which one would you pick?
This is tricky and I have thought a lot about this answer. I think I would have to say sight. I would not be willing to give up my sense of smell or taste, I could never give up my ability to communicate. Touch is so sacred I would never be able to live without it. But sight, sight I could manage without. Not well or easily but I think I have seen enough so far in my life my memory would suffice.
What was your favorite birthday present of all time?
Hands down the best birthday gift I have ever gotten was last year when I got a plane ticket to Italy and a plane ticket to London.
Do you feel I have answered your questions well enough? It was fun, thanks for asking!
I am grateful for new shoes. Beautiful leather ones from Italy! They smell like heaven and fit like a glove.
I am grateful for how clean laundry smells.
I am grateful for a well stocked cupboard.
