1. What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever done?
2. What did you do growing up that got you into trouble?
I was a good kid. I can only think of two things in my entire childhood for which I was punished: My brother and I were engaging in horseplay indoors and he shoved me up against the wall, at which time I kicked my heel back and through the drywall in the dining room. He and I had to split the cost of the repair. The other time, I got caught skipping first period (It was German II and I hated it!). Skipping would have been bad enough but I also forged a note to use as an excuse. The note earned me an in-school suspension and, at home, a 1500 word essay on why I shouldn’t have done what I did.
3. When was the last time you had an amazing meal? What was it? Why was it amazing for you?
I can’t remember an amazing meal. Ever. I’ve had some decent meals. I’ve had some amazing company during mediocre meals. I’ve had amazing dining experiences with choreographed service, fine linen, and sterling sliver accompanied by itty bitty portions of courses I couldn’t appreciate because my pallet is that of a five year old. I’ve had amazing desserts. I don’t think I’ve had an amazing start-to-finish, everything-was-just-perfect meal.
4. What’s the best/worst gift you’ve ever given/received?
The best gift I’ve ever received is my Boy. Meeting him changed my life. He is what divides my life into before and after. (Oh, geez, that was a long time ago. That was before I knew my Boy.) As for the worst? Meh. What constitutes a “bad” gift? I’ve definitely received some things that I’ve looked at and thought Hmm okay … I don’t really understand what I should do with this. That being said, it’s always nice to be thought of. I love surprises and I don’t get many gifts. Even the ones that don’t make much sense are greatly appreciated.
5. What do you miss most about being a kid?
Bonus: What is something you learned in the last week?
I learned that I don’t have enough experiences in my life in which I can relax. There is always some component I have to plan/execute/check on. Sitting back and letting everything go simply does not happen.
