Listen My Children And You Shall Hear

  1. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
    I am not seven years old, so this does not matter to me.  Up until a month ago the bedroom closet door was broken, so it was open.  Now it is open or closed, dependent upon how lazy I am.
  2. Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotel?
    Nah.  Suave is super cheap, so I usually bring my own.  And, have you seen my lack of hair?  I barely even need shampoo.
  3. Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?
    Tucked in at the foot of the bed, but I am warm as a furnace when I sleep, so I usually am uncovered or marginally covered during this weather.
  4. Have you ever stolen a street sign before?
    No, and have not even been tempted.

    Sometimes. depends on how I feel about my teeth at the time.
  10. What is your biggest pet peeve?
    I am a grammar nazi

  13. What about pooped in the woods?

  1. I miss you, too. As always, I love how you think about things in such a different way than I do. Your brain is so interesting to me! #18 made me gasp and my eyes fill, and #77, particularly, is wonderful.

    • The thing I love about these are the little mundane things I learn about you. To me, those are important because they open more doors! For me, it was your answer to #1 especially.

      • Like a long, wandering conversation over good beer & pizza, right? I do enjoy how we don’t very often stick close to the topic at hand.
        Your answer to #48 surprised me – you’ve clearly never heard me sing “Old Man River”! – and your response to #51 made me groan aloud. You do know about my history there, right?

      • Exactly like that! Wide ranging topics are why I always look forward to your visits. Oh yes, I know of your history, but I did always like the food there. Denny Schrandt and I frequented that establishment and always had the wildberry pie and ice cream.

  2. Denny was in my wedding. He would, at the end of my tenure there, not come in at all if he didn’t see my car – he loved my bacon cheeseburgers that much. !
    (Aside: I broke a nail in the car today. Another strike against me as a date-worthy female.)

      • He sang Sunrise, Sunset from Fiddler on the Roof in the wedding.

        re: the lack of Amy-worthy men, it doesn’t help that they’re all being compared to the unattainable One-Strike-and-You’re-Out Michael, eh? 😉
