Five Question Friday

1. Have you ever forgotten your child in a store or at school?

Ummmm...gawd this is humiliating... okay there was this one time when I had a horrible migraine headache. I took two of my migraine pills and laid down to try to sleep off the headache. Next thing I know the phone is ringing. I fling myself up look at the clock [OMG I am SO LATE to pick up my girl and I'm trying to clear my head] but then that horrible noise again...bloody phone...
Hello? there is some child on the phone looking for it's mother (in my defense I had never spoken to my child on the telephone before)...Where are you? I ask this mystery child. At school is the response. Is there anybody there with you, a grown up? Yes. (I'm getting a little frustrated, I'm trying to help some mystery child on the telephone when I need to get to my own child's school and pick her up!). Okay, then Teacher will help you find your mommy, okay. Bye.
Grab my purse and my shoes and head for the door... there's that phone again...
Again Mystery Child is on the phone!!! [My head is starting to clear finally] Who are you looking for sweetheart? Mom I am sure your mommy will be there soon. Mommy? I am sorry, I don't know where your mommy is, but I need to go now, ask the teacher for help okay? You are my mommy! OMG I was mortified!

2. Where did you go on your very first date? (Like...first first, not first with your spouse or current significant other!)

Out to dinner at a restaurant that I cannot even remember the name of.

3. What's your "silly" fear? (We're not talking water and heights.)

Silly Fear? Clowns are silly right? Does that make Clowns a silly fear?

4. Confrontation: do you cause it, deal with is as it comes, or run far far away?

Sometimes I cause it, sometimes I am blindsided by it, I would prefer to avoid it entirely, but I do deal with it as it comes. The problem is getting other people to deal with it instead of just walking away in a tiff.

5. Wood floors or carpet?

CARPET! I abhor wood floors. TOO MUCH WORK. I would rather run a vacuum than mop, strip the wax, re-wax the floor and dry mop it every day until I get to re-do the floors again! UGH!
