I think I may always be a day late with these, because I do my Five for Friday post on Fridays. Then again, I could just post twice on Fridays! Anyway…
Here are my answers to Wife of a Sailor’s questions:
What food reminds you of your spouse?
Macaroni and Cheese, green chile, Sonic, and Wendy’s. You know, the four food groups 🙂
Who would you rather sit next to in a cross-country plane ride: an irritating non-stop talker, or a quiet stare-er?
It wouldn’t really matter to me. I can keep up a conversation if I need to and I’d probably just sleep if someone was holding their gaze a little longer than necessary.
What are your best tips on how to save money?
I wish I had something clever to say here besides “use coupons,” but really? I don’t know what else there is to say. Wow. This is lame, I apologize!
What is your favorite summer memory?
Oh goodness. It would have to be during a summer trip we (my parents, brother, and I) took to Boston one year. We walked around that town and I fell in love with the architecture and the whole lifestyle that surrounded Boston. I even got to visit the Orchard House, the home of Louisa May Alcott, which was incredible!
So there we were, in Boston, driving around these prestigious universities and amazing-looking neighborhoods. My brother and I were in the backseat and I was staring out the window—jaw dropped wondering how I could get into a university in Boston—when my brother turns to me and says:
“a Ess! Ow muinay pises o gaum cun ew fet en yuoor mouf a un dime?”
(Hey Jess! How many pieces of gum can you fit in your mouth at one time?)
Oh yes, my brother—who was around 8, maybe?—fit an entire pack of bubble gum in his mouth at one time. It was hilarous and we couldn’t stop laughing. Here we were looking at these highly intellegent people walking around prestegious campuses, and my brother was busy talking with a mouth full of bubblegum. Boys will be boys!
Do you believe in ghosts?
Hmmm…honestly, I don’t know how to answer this. I’ve never personally seen a ghost, but I’ve heard of some pretty crazy things happening—and from first-person accounts, too.
