Five Question Friday
There are things I'd love to try (well, okay, places I'd love to visit) but it's more a matter of finances preventing me from doing it rather than courage. I enjoy a good adventure story but when it comes right down to it I'm not particularly courageous when it comes to "extreme" activities... and I'm okay with that.
2. If you had $100 handed to you in cash without your significant other knowing about it, what would you spend it on?
Groceries. Isn't that boring? Unfortunately, our budget is just that tight right now. But assuming the bills were paid and the pantry was well-stocked, I'd stash it away to start a vacation fund for the fall.
3. What was your favorite piece of playground equipment as a child?
When I was 8 or 9 we lived near a small zoo that had the best slide. It was designed to look like a rocket, and the slide part was a spiral. We thought that was so cool.
About that same time, McDonald's in our town built a playground. We'd never seen such a thing before. It was outdoors. No cool crawl tunnels or ball pits like they have now. Instead, there was a giant hamburger up on a pedestal. A ladder inside the pedestal allowed us to climb up inside the hamburger and look out the sides. As I recall, that's about all there was to it. Kinda like a small tree house. The only other "equipment" I remember at that playground were some of the other McDonald's characters as those silly bouncy thingys you sit on and bob up and down. We weren't very impressed with those... probably because we were too big for them.
4. Do you prefer a sweet or hearty breakfast?
Hearty. Or least savory. Buttered toast and coffee is okay. I can't stand doughnuts or anything super sweet early in the morning. I might enjoy a good sweet pastry with coffee later in the day, but not for breakfast.
5. Are you a Neat Freak or a Messy Bessy?
Something in between, I think. I have neat freak tendencies, and clutter does bug me, but somehow I can't manage to keep up... so my house is usually more messy than not. I have been on a decluttering kick lately, though, and I have to say, it feels really good! I'll have to show you pictures of my office when I finish organizing in here.
