Wow, that sounds like an answer to a test question in an Interpersonal Communications course. Sorry for the rigidity, but I truly believe all of that, and I work to keep my relationship on that foundation.
2. Why is it called a drive-thru if you have to stop? (Real question: What was the last food/drink you purchased at a drive-thru?)
I have this awesome mental picture of a car zooming by a drive-thru window, the customer chucking loose change at the window and the employee throwing handsful of fries at the car. A paper cup of soda ricochets off of the windshield, leaving a sticky trail of syrup and ice cubes and ketchup splats against the car door.
I'm not exactly a dog lover. I'm not a dog hater, either, but I've never had one, so I guess I don't see the hype. However, someday when we have some space, and when we're actually home enough to take care of a dog, I wouldn't mind getting one.
I'd love to rescue a greyhound, or to have a whippet, but my favorite has got to be the Rottweiler. I fricking love those things and their adorable smooshie faces. But, as Paul has vetoed every last one of those breeds (insert pouty-face here), I guess I wouldn't mind having the bulldog that he wants. Just as long as it isn't some nasty, yippy little chihuaua, or anything that ends in 'poo.' I prefer dogs that can't be carried in a purse.
Side note: Whatever happened to mutts? Why can't you just get a good mutt anymore?
4. If you had to move to a state besides the one you currently live in, where would you move?
I really love Washington. I mean, I love it. So I'd hate to move. That's one huge reason why I'm glad Paul is in the guard. But if we had to move, I guess I wouldn't mind going to Colorado, or maybe the east coast--like Maine or Rhode Island or something. I've never been to either of those places, so I just don't know.
5. If you could change anything about the way you were raised, what would it be?
I think my parents did a good job! I mean, I turned out great, right? Though I can't vouch for my sisters... I kid, I kid.
If I could change anything, I would probably have them send me to public school at least for high school. Sorry to beat a dead mule, Mom. I did okay :) (and I just tried to find a photo of our fan-freaking-tastic uniforms, but no one is brave/dumb enough to post one on facebook and mine are all at home)
6. Who is the funniest person you know?
I can't name one person, but nothing is funnier than Paul, Chris and Chubz when they're on a roll.
7. Did you get enough sleep last night?
Theoretically I did, but enough sleep is never enough for me. I live in the land of Nod.
8. What's the first thing you thought of this morning?
How the crap am I going to roll over and get out of bed? I'm stuck. Might as well hit snooze. Obviously I got out of bed eventually, but it huuuuuuurt.
9. Grilled or fried? --HONESTLY
Fried, duh. But I do love grilled veggies, too!
10. Are you afraid of the dark?
Not so much anymore. Well, not indoors anyways. I still get a little panicky when I'm outside in the dark. But at least I no longer have to do the running leap into bed so the creature beneath it doesn't grab my ankles!
