Burning questions

                                    48 Questions via Nancy Grayce 

(altered slightly for interest...nobody cares about my tonsils...)

1) Were you named after anyone? 
yes, a friend of my mother's

2) When was the last time you cried?
today actually...I had to say goodbye to two kittens

3) Do you like your handwriting? 
to tell the truth I so rarely ever write anymore...only my name 
on an occasional check or document! I used to write pretty...but 
my husband has gorgeous handwriting! Wouldn't you know it...he
types everything. 

4) What is your favorite lunch meat? Ummm...we are going to change this to something more fun...
Tell a favorite childhood memory. :) 
Okay, there was a community college across from our house and all the neighborhood kids love to play on the grounds of it. It had a huge tree toward the back which had a wide limb we all liked to sit on and talk the hours away. 

5) Do you have kids?
Three teenaged boys! I couldn't be prouder of them and am so thankful for them. 

6) If you were another person, would you be friends with you?

7) Do you use sarcasm alot? 
Yes :/ When my kids fuss about somebody or what they are doing, I'll say, "let's kill them!" It kind of gets the point across that they are 
judging too harshly. And obviously they know I am not serious. 

8) (the tonsil question was here....)
Do you panic in emergencies? 
For some reason, I'm a clear thinker and don't panic, which I love. 
I will say though, that I have not been in a grand emergency but little ones...except for the time I got robbed at my teller job. 

9) Would you bungee jump?
Heck to the no. 

10) What is your favorite cereal? 
Honey Bunches of Oats!! I'm not about to read the label either because more than likely it is loaded with sugar. 

11) Do you untie your shoes when you take them off? 
Darn, are you WATCHING? 

12) Do you think you are strong?
Muscle-wise I can't move a pencil without help.

Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla
