Sunday Stealing

1. Which state do you consider to be the most boring state?

Ha! I refuse to answer that question on the grounds that I haven't been to all of them yet!

2. If any chef from the Food Network (or any well known chef) could cater your wedding, who would it be?

I would rather have my wedding catered by my talented Bro-in-law, Mike Odette, chef and part-owner of Sycamore in Columbia, Missouri. GO!!

3. What's the last thing you ate that was red?

Uhhh... red... It would have to have been a cherry or a strawberry, I'm guessing, although I really can't recall.

4. Have you ever questioned the sexual orientation of a close friend?

A boyfriend or two, even! (And I turned out to be right about one of them, although I still think the other one is iffy, too. Hee.)

5. Everyone loses a friend after some big fight. Tell us about one.

I lost a close-ish, but I would no longer call her a "good" friend, in November. She had been showing her true colors for a while before then, with Hubs urging me to cut ties with her, but then we went on a trip together and she was the epitome of an inconsiderate pig. I was disgusted and could not get away from her fast enough. Good riddance to bad rubbish, as they say!

6. Have you ever washed an iPod or mp3 player in the washing machine?

I don't know about those things, specifically, but yes, I've put some expensive electronics through the ringer. I couldn't scold Hubs too much when he recently dropped his iPhone in the toilet - because I've pulled that one, too!!

7. Have you ever screamed / yelled angrily at a boss?

Heavens, no. Unless you consider the hub and kids my "boss," which I do not.

8. Have you ever cried yourself to sleep?

I'm a 34-year-old female. The question is, have I done it this week?

9. Have you ever regretted being in a relationship with someone?

Absolutely. The guy I was engaged to before I met my husband - the one who broke my two front teeth? I regretted that relationship from the very beginning. Honestly, I only stuck with it as long as I did because I needed help paying the rent. Sad but true story.

10. Have you ever acted like you understood something when you didn't have a clue?

No, but I have pretended the opposite on more than one occasion.

11. Have you ever thought someone must have been insane? If yes, tell us something about the person.

TBFH, aka my evil former stepmother, definitely had shit wrong with her cerebrum. She sure went insane on ME on a daily basis. She taught me the finer points of being a shitty mother. I'm living her lessons every day and trying to undo them. It's so, so hard.

12. Have you ever pretended to be younger than what you are?

Nope. I love getting older. Absolutely adore it.

13. Back in the day, did you ever cry because you were turned down for a date?

Yeah, I did. Ha... I asked a few boys to a few different school dances and most of the time got turned down. Whatever, I'm just proud I had the balls to do it, then!

14. Have you ever (or your significant other) had a pregnancy scare?

Oh, for sure. Fun times!

15. Have you ever pretended to like someone when you didn't?

Sure, you have to sometimes.  Gotta get along in this world, right?

Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there! Love those babies - life is short.
