10 YEARS AGO
Let's see, what year is it now? 10 years ago I had Sam and it was really easy and fun except for my uncompleted Master's Thesis which loomed over me depressingly. I also made my mom ship our second-hand excersaucer to Florida because I couldn't live without it. Ha ha! Do you know how big of a box you have to get to ship an exersaucer? Do you know how much shipping costs? Why did I do that! I'm so sorry I did that. I should have just bought a new one but even though we had a real paying job after being students for so long with no disposable income it honestly did not even occur to me. That was dumb.
5 THINGS ON MY TO DO LIST
1. Apologize to my mom for making her ship an exersaucer from Utah to Tampa Bay.
2. Apologize to my mom for making her drive a 15 foot Ryder truck from Utah to California (9 years ago). The truck carried an ugly old couch and an exersaucer. Why did I do that? Sorry!
3. Learn to ride Sam's new ripstick. (The exersaucer was WAY easier to balance in.)
4. Write a poem about snow called, "April Snow," or "Why I Don't Have a Garden."
5. Read my completed Master's Thesis. (Or YOU can read it, if you want.)
5 SNACKS I ENJOY
If I'm in the mood for salty, something salty. Like a hamburger or Spaghettios. If I'm in the mood for sweet, something sweet. Like a handful of chocolate chips or a spoonful of frosting. Just kidding! My real answer is hummus.
5 FOODS I LOVE (Well, here's what I order at 5 different restaurants):
Carrabas: Pollo Rosa Maria
Samhawk: Spicy Pork
Costa Vida/Cafe Rio: Chicken Burrito (enchilada style)
Ruby River: Prime rib with sweet potato
California Pizza Kitchen: BBQ Chicken Chop Salad
I recommend all of these whole-heartedly.
WHAT WOULD I DO IF I WERE SUDDENLY A BILLIONAIRE
Eat out all the time and reimburse my mom for exersaucer shipping charges.
5 PLACES I HAVE LIVED
Florida--oops! Those are all the same.
"You don't have to brush all your teeth--just the ones you want to keep!" My award-winning dental awareness slogan. My mom thought of it. And she worked for a dentist. So she probably saw it on a poster at work. Who cares! I won a huge basket of fruit and sugar-free gum for it.
