Me – Part Eight

Coming in the home stretch here…beginning to wonder what comes after this.

71) Do you like guacamole?

Yes. Yes, I do.

72) Have you ever been in a physical fight?

I have not. I frequently tell my children that I am willing to learn how to beat up whoever is causing them trouble, but I don’t think I really have it in me. I am seemingly incapable of even making a legitimate looking fist. It just looks like I am hiding something in my hand. Sad, but true.

73) What/who are you thinking about right now?

Well, considering that I’ve been answering questions about myself for days now, me. But I’m always also thinking about my posse.

74) Do you like cuddling?

Indeed. I dread when my kids get older and don’t want hugs. Luckily my favorite fella is pretty cuddly.

75) Are you holding onto something you need to let go of?

No, I was just making a threatening fist and that’s what it looks like ;)

76) Have you ever experienced one of your biggest fears?

I once lost my daughter for about 10 minutes on the boardwalk at the beach and had a moment of what it would feel like if she was truly gone. It was bad and I’m glad it wasn’t real.

77) Favorite city you’ve been to?

Montreal was lovely. Paris was much better the second time around. San Francisco is fun. I’m not really a city person in general, but those were all good ones.

78) Would you break the law to save a family member?

Yes, I think I would. It depends on what sort of law breaking was required, but I’m pretty prepared to throw down for those folks.

79) Talk about an embarrassing moment?

When my daughter was about 2 we took her to a restaurant with high-backed booths. She kept standing up and peeking over the back of the booth to stare at the woman behind us, and she [the woman] must not have appreciated it and given my little angel some kind of unfriendly look. This prompted my baby child to stage whisper (although just barely) “Mommy, I don’t like that lady.”

I’m pretty sure that lady was not a big fan of us either.

80) Are there any causes you strongly believe in?

Lots. Gun control, pro-choice, women’s rights, fair pay, social reforms, education. I’ve got a LOT of thoughts on how things should be.
