I was tagged for this meme by Barb at A Chelsea Morning, so here it goes.
1.What was your favorite thing about being a kid?
I loved the last day of school and knowing that you had a whole long lazy summer in front of you. I remember riding my bike to our neighborhood pool with my gang of girlfriends knowing that all we had to do was remember to be home by dark. We’d go up to the 7-11 and load up on enough candy to last us all day long and spend the rest of the day practicing our flips off the diving board.
2. What was your favorite subject in school?
English, without a doubt. I loved that I got to read great books and write papers about them. I always had great English teachers who instilled a love of reading and writing. I will say that Algebra II was the bane of my existence, and I can hardly type the word Geometry without breaking out into a cold sweat and wanting to cry.
3. Who was your best friend when you were 10?
Caroline Fletcher. She lived two houses down from us and was one year older. I thought she was the coolest thing that ever lived. We had our own girl gang (kind of like the Pink Ladies) but we wore red satin jackets that our moms bought us at Weiners. She had a jukebox at her house and if we played Jive Talking by the Bee Gees once, we played it a million times. I also remember that we both wore our hair feathered and spent alot of time turning our heads upside down so we could flip our hair back. I never looked as cool as she did though. I lost touch with her after she moved and would love to know where she is now.
4. If you could be any animal, what would you be?
I would be one of my dad and stepmom’s dogs. They get to live inside, sleep on an incredibly comfortable bed and basically live a life of luxury with no responsibility, except for barking at the mailman. Not that I want to bark at the mailman, but I’m just saying they feel like it is their responsibility so I would carry on the tradition.
5. What would you change about your school, occupation, life right now?
Honestly, nothing. I’m pretty content and feel very blessed with what I have. If I could get Caroline to remember to use the potty EVERY time she needs to go that would be fabulous, but we’ll get there.
6. What’s your favorite color?
Depends on what it’s on. I like sage greens, sky blues, and pink if it’s that perfect shade between light and hot.
7. What’s your favorite type of crust and topping on a pizza?
I don’t want to sound all snobby and sophisticated but the pizza I love the most is a frozen Tombstone with pepperoni. One night a week, P. is gone and I love to bake myself a Tombstone and eat it while drinking an ice cold Corona with lime while watching some girly show on T.V. like the Gilmore Girls. I know most of y’all will think that’s disgusting, but it’s what I like. My relationship with pizza is complex and I go through times where I will even think that I hate pizza. It’s just a weird quirk. But when and if I do decide to eat pizzeria pizza, it absolutely must have thin, crispy crust. Anything else is just a travesty.
So there you have it and it’s probably more information than you wanted to know! Anyone else up for doing this meme? Consider yourself tagged.
