Five Question Friday

It’s Friday… woo hoo!

Liam has two days of school left… where has the year gone?

We’re going on a double date this weekend… woo hoo!

Jack is moving up to a new room at daycare on June 11… sob.

It’s raining and 55 out… Monday it was sunny and 90… why does Michigan weather still surprise me?

I finished one of the most dissatisfying books I’ve ever read yesterday so to cleanse my palate, I read a new one… start to finish. This morning I am tired, but not mad at the world because of the bad book. Worth it.

Time for Five Question Friday…

1. What were you scared of as a kid?
So many things…

  • the Thriller video (thanks, Marty)
  • something coming out of the toilet to get me
  • people popping up in windows while I am looking out of them (particularly at night – but I think this happening at any time of day would scare me still)
  • things chasing me (I hated tag)
  • big dogs
  • bees and wasps (still am)
  • my parents jumping out of the car while we were going down the hill by my house (I had a dream about this and could envision it happening for months afterward every time we rounded the corner at the top of the hill for home). You know… the usual 🙂

2. Do you sleep well in a hotel?
I’d say yes, though it often takes me some time to fall asleep in a new place. Growing up when we’d road trip as a family I would be doomed if I didn’t fall asleep before my parents because they both snored, LOUDLY and I wouldn’t be able to fall asleep for forever if they fell asleep first. But once asleep, I’m fine. Ironically, before I got my tonsils out, I also snored badly. One time Simon (who did and still does snore) and I were in Chicago with our friends, Kara and Andy, and we woke up in the morning and they were gone. Come to find out, we had kept them awake with our snoring so they took everything off their bed and were sleeping in the closet (I have no idea why our chain hotel room had such a big closet). Sorry about that, guys.

3. If you could meet any celebrity, dead or alive, who and why?
I used to answer Robin Williams to this question because any time I see him in an interview, he’s always cracking the other person up and I love a good laugh. But really, I don’t know that I’d have anything to say to him. In general, I’d love to meet a celebrity who I think I could be friends with, with the hopes that they would want to be my friend long after our meeting because how cool would that be… but I’d want to genuinely like them because I can’t fake like someone, I’ve tried.

4. It’s a hot summer day. Do you prefer to be pool side or at the beach?
Depends… If I’m by myself, then pool side but if the kids are with me, beach (fresh water, please). They are happier there and aren’t at as great a risk of drowning because they inexplicably and mistakenly think they can swim. Plus the sand keeps them occupied more than anything could if we were just poolside.

5. What is your favorite summer dish?
Do mojitos count?
{Anything grilled is the cop-out, but real answer.}

Linking up with Mama M for Five Question Friday.

  1. I used to be terrified of someone looking in the windows at night as well (totally forgot about this). My younger brother once dressed up and smashed on my window in the dark because he knew it scared me… totally think I’m traumatized from the incident.

    And yes, I totally think mojitos count 😉

  2. My brother once jumped on a window while I was babysitting. They lived WAY out in the sticks…and it was 10pm. I hated him for that.

  3. I almost forgot about that trip. Thanks for the laugh!

Have something to say about that? I'd love to hear from you!
