Boy Bands, Zoo Animals, and Pro Wrestling

In the past week I've had some very rough days.  Actually they've been much worse than rough but this is a happy post so we won't talk about that.

I asked you guys the other day on facebook to send me some random questions to answer in hopes that it might lift my spirits.

It worked.  Some of your questions made me laugh out loud.

And those more serious questions provided me with distraction.

So thank you!

Now let's answer those questions.

What does music do for you on days like today?

I know for some people they go right to music as a method to lift their spirits.  Music can lift my spirits but I'll admit it is not my go to remedy.  However Andrew picked up the guitar this weekend for the first time in forever and listening to him play and sing made me smile which I haven't done a lot of this week.

What is your favorite FRIENDS episode?

Easy!  The One With All The Resolutions.  Rachel resolves not to gossip anymore but then learns that Monica and Chandler are dating.  She wants so badly to tell Joey but he is trying to help her keep her resolution.  He covers his ears, closes his eyes, and screams lalalala.  She leaves and Chandler walks in.  He holds the duck in Joey's face and when Joey opens his eyes to that flapping duck it scares the mess out of him. And Ross in those leather pants!

What is your favorite teacher moment?  And what is the funniest question you have ever been asked?

I don't know that I can narrow it down to one specific moment, but my favorite thing is when a student tells me I'm like their mom.  I think this is absolutely the greatest compliment they could ever give me.  It lets me know they feel loved and cared for and protected.  There is no more important job in this world than that of a mother so when I can come close to that job with my students I know I'm doing something right.

As far as the funniest question I've ever been asked...hmm.  There have been several.  I had a student one time who was mentally younger than all of her classmates.  She always brightened my day.  She asked me one time if I was a mommy and when I said no not yet she proceeded to ask me if I wanted to know how to be a mommy.  Before I could even answer she told me to take my husband in the bedroom for private time and then I would be a mommy.  Oh she made me smile!

If you were on a deserted island and could have only 2 things from home (people not included) what would they be?

Well I already know if I'm on a deserted island I'm not going to survive no matter what I have with me so forget survival things.  I'd say my cell phone so I could call for help but I'm assuming there will be no signal on this island.  So....

I would want a hammock and a huge bag of good books.

If you were not teacher, what would profession would you be interested in and why?

I would want to work in an eye doctor's office.  I don't know that I necessarily want to be an optometrist but I am so fascinated with eyes, maybe because I'm blind.  And I love organizational things and calendars.

You have been selected to do a commercial...What product and why?

Lush...don't even have to think about it.  I'm assuming I would get a major discount on their products, maybe even free.

If you were in a girl version of any boy band, which boy band would it be?  Who would be your band members?  And which member would you be?  For example, are you the Justin of N'Sync

Umm..Joey in New Kids on the Block!  And for band members...let's get the girls from Bottomland Naturals back together.  Fun memories of us singing while we made birdhouses.

Would you rather never have another duty or never grade another paper?

Oh never have another duty for sure.  I don't even care what duty it is, I hate them all!
Grading doesn't bother me.  Of course I don't teach writing.

If you could have lunch with any person who is no longer living, who would it be?

My Granddad.  I was too little when he passed away to remember him.  But if you talk to anyone who knew him, he was a pretty special guy.

What is your favorite animal to visit at the zoo?

Can I pick four?  LOL.  I like the giraffes, panda bears, kangaroos, and penguins.  But if I have to pick just one...

Who do you admire most and why?

Wow!  Now that's a question!  There are several people that I admire for different reasons, but the first person who popped into my head when I read this question was my sister-in-law Joy.  She has a love for the Lord that is so sweet and genuine.  Whenever I'm around her I always leave wanting more of Jesus.  That's the kind of person I want to be...I want other to want more of Jesus after spending time with me.

If you could host a dinner party for four people (living or dead) who would they be and what would you serve?

Well my husband definitely.  He makes everything more fun.  And we're eating with President and Mrs. Reagan.  I'm sure most people would serve something fancy if they were eating with a former president, but we're having grilled chicken sandwiches aboard The Liberty Belle because they are just so dang good.

What is your least favorite chore?

Cleaning the kitchen.

Why is Jill Averitt your favorite sister-in-law?

Because she is amazing of course!  And she lives close to a Lush store. :)

If you decided to join your brother in professional wrestling what would be the name of your tag team?

Let's be my brother would ever choose me as his tag team partner!  But if we were a tag team our theme music would be something by Aerosomith :)  and our name would be The Bobsie Twins...I know that's horrible but I didn't have an answer and then I rememberd how when we were little we thought it was such a treat for mom and dad when we wore matching shirts for bed.  Mom would always tells us were Bobsie Twins.

What is your least favorite color?

Orange...I don't think I knew that about myself until you asked.

What is your favorite book?

Oh I don't even know.  When I was a kid it was Just As Long As We're Together by Judy Blume.  Lately I've been loving historical fiction - especially WWII stuff.

You have a chicken, a fox, and a bucket of corn.  You have to cross a creek and can only carry one thing at a tie.  How do you get all three across without one eating the other?

I have no idea but I hope the chicken is what's left at the end because I'm going to be hungry by the time I carry all that across a creek.

What drew you to teaching?

I don't have a specific answer to this question.  I've just always wanted to be a teacher.  I never even thought about doing anything else.  I love watching my students grow and mature and gain confidence.

What's your favorite cocktail?

I can count on one hand with fingers left over the alcoholic beverages that I like.  LOL...just not a fan.  Andrew makes me something I like but I don't even know what's in it or the last time I had one.

Which was your favorite question?

All of them...I'm a teacher and isn't our motto supposed to be the only bad/dumb question is the one not asked?  :)
