1. How many speeding tickets have you gotten?
Depends, does it count as a speeding ticket if you go to traffic school and get it waived? That’s happened twice. The best time though, was when I was singing Phineas and Ferb songs with my son and went a little fast on the way to church on a Wednesday night. The police officer saw me just before I got there and the flashing lights followed me right into the parking lot.
Which was full, as everyone else was also arriving for activities.
Including all the young women I was in charge of.
He took pity on me and only gave me a warning. Still, something like that is hard to live down.
2. Can you pitch a tent?
Absolutely! We used to have contests and time ourselves to see who could go faster. Yea, we’re cool like that.
3. What was your worst vacation ever?
I can’t say. Honestly my parents had a gift for taking any situation, accepting it and making the best of it so all our vacations were just opportunities for flexibility.
I was dreadfully sick on my honeymoon though. I caught a nasty cold two days before the wedding, lost my voice at the reception and was so dizzy I couldn’t stand up for a day or two on the honeymoon.
4. What was the last thing you bought over $100?
Diapers at Target???? We just bought a treadmill for Christmas. Shhhh, don’t tell, it’s supposed to be a surprise.
5. We're handing you the keys to what?
An apartment I can have all to myself. I can write in undisturbed silence and no one will make any demands on me. (I really do love my family, I just dream of a little alone time every now and again)
6. What was the last meal cooked that made even you sick?
I’m not sure. Usually it’s when I buy prepared ingredients and it’s too salty. We don’t really like salt and try to get most of our stuff low-sodium.
7. Fill in the blank: Oh my gosh! Becky, look at her butt! It is so big. She looks like _____?
I can’t. I would never say something like that.
8. What was your first car?
1992 Honda Accord. It was hubby’s when we got married. I often tease him that I married him for his car and his great taste in women.
9. Your best friend falls and gets hurt. Do you ask if he/she's okay or laugh first?
Ask if she’s OK. I fall over so often it has lost any humorous appeal it might once have had.
10. What's the worst song ever?
Anything a child will listen to a billion times in a row then wonder why you’re a little snappy.
