Today’s post for the A to Z Challenge brings you facts about me. If “Anxious Mom” is ever a category on trivia night, you’ll do very well.
A) What does the last text you sent say? And to whom?
“Have you made a final decision about the phone?” To my mother-in-law, who is interested in purchasing my cell phone.
B) What does the last text you received say? And from whom?
“Leaving. Call when I get to the car.” From my husband, who is leaving work. (Exciting texts, huh?)
C) What time do you wake up most mornings?
Around 7:00. After the kids go to school, sometimes I lay back down for a nap, though.
D) Are you afraid of walking alone at night?
In my house? Not anymore. Outside? Heck yes.
E) What do you do to relax at the end of a stressful day?
Watch “The Office.”
F) Where did your last kiss take place and with whom?
With my husband this morning.
G) Do/did you get into trouble a lot at school?
Nope, despite trying. Yes, trying. I didn’t want to finish high school super squeaky clean, so I tried to get a detention. No amount of tardies or doing stupid crap in front of teachers could nab me one.
H) Do you enjoy your job? If unemployed, are you content being so?
I’m a freelance writer, so I sometimes enjoy it, depending on what I’m writing. Other times I want to stab my eyes out with a fork, but money’s money.
I) Do you often pick up on double entendres and innuendos?
Of course. Usually I’m the one making them.
J) Have you ever been offered drugs but declined?
Yeah, my sister offered me weed a few times and I declined it most of the times. Otherwise, no one has ever offered me drugs. Despite the promises from parents and teachers in high school that I would get offered free drugs in a ploy to get me hooked, that never happened.
K) Have you ever met someone who has completely altered your way of thinking?
I don’t think so. There have definitely been people who made me reevaluate my beliefs — and sometimes change them — but I wouldn’t say anyone has ever completely altered my way of thinking.
L) Have you ever been offered drugs and accepted?
M) Tell us something weird that turns you on.
My husband dressed as a hobbit.
N) When did someone last admit romantic or sexual feelings for you? Was the feeling mutual?
A guy that I dated for a while brought up his feelings again when he found out that I was engaged to my husband. It was a “Just want you to know I’ll always love you and be there if it doesn’t work out” kind of deal. We’re still Facebook friends, and I’m happy to see that he’s been in a relationship for the past couple of years. (And boy, the stories I could write on that guys…he had most of our mutual friends trying to guilt me into going back to him for a while.)
O) What is something you have given a lot of thought to lately?
My desire to become an author. I’ve been writing a lot lately and am trying to make something happen.
P) When did you last swallow your beliefs to avoid an argument or confrontation?
With my dad a couple weeks ago. He bitched about my husband taking my daughter to the restroom, and I just ignored what turned into a transphobic rant because I didn’t want to deal with it.
Q) Do you usually initiate hugs?
R) Are you a very affectionate person?
I’m pretty affectionate with my kids, somewhat affectionate with my husband depending on my mood hehe, and not affectionate with anyone else.
S) Can you roll your own cigarettes?
No. I don’t smoke.
T) What are you looking forward to?
Someone telling me they want to publish something I’ve written. How’s that for optimism?
U) Do you have any tattoos. Do you want any/more?
I have four. I do want more — I’d like to get a mosaic owl type tattoo. Maybe some song lyrics.
V) Are you mentally strong?
W) Are you physically strong?
I do okay.
X) Do you think you’re a good person?
Y) Name one thing you wish you could change about your life right now.
The amount of money in my bank account.
Z) What do you usually eat for breakfast?
Nothing. Sometimes I don’t eat anything until around 4:00.
