1. Have you ever forgotten your child in a store or at school?
So far – no – but this is a big time fear of mine. My parents lost me one time at a Kmart in Kansas City. I was probably 5 and think I’m still traumatized by the whole ordeal.
2. Where did you go on your very first date? (Like...first first, not first with your spouse or current significant other!)
Really gonna have to think this one out. I would have to say that it was Freshman year in high school and we went to see Mars Attacks. What a horrible movie and the guy I was with was a douche canoe. We may or may not have wandered around the mall too – because really, what else are you going to do when you’re 14?
3. What's your "silly" fear? (We're not talking water and heights.)
Hmmm… I like to think that I don’t have any “silly” fears, but I’m sure I probably do they just aren’t coming to me right now…
4. Confrontation: do you cause it, deal with is as it comes, or run far far away?
Perhaps I should bucket confrontation as my silly fear. I really REALLY dislike it. If I’m in a confrontation I tend to just shut down and cave. I’m particularly spineless (which is fine because I’m aware of it, right?) and tend to just appease the people confronting me. I rarely RARELY ever confront anyone – other than my husband of course.
5. Wood floors or carpet?
Our house is carpet and tile but I would love to have wood floors as well. I’d also really like to have stained and stamped concrete floors in our basement…assuming that we lived in a house that actually had a basement.
