Seven-ish weeks of sheltering-in-place and I have (mostly) moved past anxiousness and have landed in the realm of boredom. So I thought it would be fun to answer some not-so-typical questions. Here goes nothing.
If you had a warning label, what would it say? Beware of silence and eye rolls–a sarcastic comment may be brewing.
Would you rather go 30 days without your phone, or your entire life without dessert? Thirty days without my phone for sure. I live for anything chocolate.
If one animal was the size of an elephant, which would be the scariest? Spiders. No contest.
What would your job be during a zombie apocalypse? Well, based on current affairs, I’d say homeschool teacher. Besides, I’m not a fast runner and I’m much better at curling up into a ball than swinging a bat, so I would be much more helpful inside a boarded-up house than outside.
If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Probably eggs because they’re delicious, I have no problem eating them any time of the day, and I can cook them multiple ways.
How much would someone have to pay you to eat a live spider? There is not enough money in the world…Okay, okay, I would MAYBE, POSSIBLY, eat one if it was smaller than an ant and I got paid millions…and had lots of Patron to wash it down.
Do you have any superstitions? I don’t know if this counts, but I don’t like to talk about things I’m scared of because then I feel like it will actually happen. However, I will imagine those things endlessly, because then it won’t happen (or so I hope). And vice versa for things I want to happen.
If you were a man for a day, what is the first thing you would do? Pee standing up. Obviously. I’ve been kicked out of places for using the men’s bathroom when I couldn’t wait in the women’s line any longer, and have also been in bathrooms that were…not very clean…so the ability to go anywhere discreetly and without having to sit would be ahh-mazing.
If you got stuck in an elevator and were forced to listen to only one song, what would it be? “Apologize” by OneRepublic. Although I would be risking scaring off the firefighters with my off-key singing.
Who was your first celebrity crush? Devon Sawa in Little Giants.
What song always gets you out on the dance floor? “Get Low” by Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz.
What is the strangest thing you’ve eaten? Alligator sausage.
What’s your biggest kitchen fail? One night I severely burned the chicken and forgot to drain the macaroni before adding the cheese. My family will never let me live that down. But in my defense, I was in high school and on the phone with a friend trying to decipher my calculus homework.
If you could make a rule for a day and everyone had to follow it, what would it be? No cell phones for a day. Get out and enjoy your life without having to check in or document what you did!
What was your dream job when you were five? A model. I was a total ham back then, always dressing up and posing for the camera. I grew out of that around thirteen or so though ha ha.
What’s the stupidest way you’ve ever hurt yourself? I recently pulled a muscle in my neck while putting on a sweater. Seriously. I couldn’t turn my head for two days and even breathing hurt. Not my finest moment.
What are you irrationally afraid of? Things exploding: blenders, microwaves, water heaters. Ceiling fans falling and spinning toward the ground like a downed helicopter. And so on. I have a very overactive imagination.
What movies could you watch over and over again and still love? Armageddon, Independence Day, Home Alone, Just Go With It.
What’s your favorite kind of sandwich? Salami, cheddar, and Doritos Nacho Cheese chips on a French roll.
Do you have any magazine subscriptions? Yep, a little bit of everything: Cosmopolitan, Good Housekeeping, Food Network Magazine, and Writer’s Digest.
So there you have it. Twenty questions to get to know me a little better. And now I would love to hear your answers to some of these!
