Link up with Joyce for the Hodgepodge today-- she supplies the questions, you give the answers.
Simple enough, no?
1. If you could work for any one government agency which would you choose and why? (if you're in the US here's a helpful list)
I clicked on the list. And now I want to make a new government agency responsible for the dissolution of the multitude of unnecessary agencies. Look no further than the first page-- there is a department called the Administration on Aging.
Newsflash-- I don't need government help to get old. Turns out the gray hairs are popping up all on their own.
2. How difficult is it for you to forgive someone who refuses to apologize?
Turns out I'm pretty forgetful, so give it enough time and I wont even remember.
3. What is your favorite meatless supper?
The kind someone else makes. Maybe pizza-- minus the pepperoni, of course.
4. Wednesday August 10th is National Lazy Day...will you be celebrating? If so, tell us how so we can be lazy too.
I didn't know! I'll have to alter my plans today.
Actually, now that I think of it, my plans will probably fit right in with National Lazy Day.
5. As a child did you have any special back to school traditions and if so, what were they? If you're a parent did you carry on those traditions with your own children?
We always had a painful picture taking session with my mother. She was by far the worst at taking pictures. She would take 10 minutes to snap one shot. Granted, you had to be more picky back then with film cameras, since you couldn't just "delete" what you didn't like. But still.
And we had to say Snuffleupagus instead of cheese.
You know, from Sesame Street.
Last year on Alex's first day of kindergarten the bus came early and I didn't get to take the picture. Then Josh followed the bus to school in his car.
This year will be hard to choose which day is the "First Day of School" since we've been working a little bit through the summer. Maybe we'll commemorate our homeschooling year with a photo in pajamas.
6. Write a summer tongue twister.
Hot humid heat, hence heinous huge head of hair.
7. Would you be interested in observing a surgery or do you turn away when the nurse brings out the needle?
As a nursing student, I enjoyed being present for certain surgeries, as I thought them interesting.
One surgery I never want to see is anything involving orthopedics. The surgeon's toolkit consists of hammers and mallets you might expect to see in a garage.
Oh, and I once watched a cesarean section birth. And for all of you mamas out there who had one-- you deserved much, much more sympathy.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
