Getting to Know - SPROUT

1. If you could, would you open a restaurant and what would you call it?

2. What was your best subject in school?

3. Who is your hero and why?

Muahaha, leetle seester. Finally, someone I can ask my "special" questions.

1. Assuming you could find one that was perfectly spherical, cherry pi or blueberry pi and to how many decimal places?

2. If colors were candy, which would be your favorite and what would it taste like?

3. Having the intense wisdom provided to you by YouTube, if you were running a lemonade stand would you keep grapes handy, or would you keep glue handy?

4. What is the first thing you plan to teach your DD to cook?

5. Aaaaaaand just because I've asked it in every other "getting to know" that I've posted in, what personality trait do you most value in yourself?

1. I would not open a restaurant. I wouldn't want cooking to become a chore.

2. Hmmm, this should be pretty straightforward, but for me, it's not. It depends on your definition of "best." I did reasonably well in everything, but my interests were so varied I spread myself a little thin and didn't apply myself to any one subject enough to really excel. English and Social Studies (History, Government, etc) were easiest for me. I also picked up Spanish pretty quickly (though I've lost most of it now). I also have a fair amount of artistic talent; 1/4 of my classes in high school were art classes, but since I also wanted to play sports, sing in choir, be part of clubs, work part time, etc, again, I didn't apply myself enough to become proficient. I also did fairly well in math and science when I tried. I was that kid in High school who was in the advanced classes, but barely squeaked by because I didn't do the homework. My favorite classes were probably metal sculpture, PE, and British Literature (though that one may not have been as fun if the teacher hadn't been so amazing).

3. Look at my tag-line- obviously the person who had spare clothes when I dreamed I showed up to school naked, jk. I try not to put anyone on a pedestal, but I have a lot of people who are heroes to me in certain aspects of their lives. Here are a few:

-My dad for persevering when many others would have thrown in the towel.
-My grandma for keeping a positive attitude in situations that would give anyone ample reason to complain.
-My sister for being herself, through and through.
-My husband for working his tail off and still finding time to play with our toddler.

1. Cherry. I'd say "a la mode," but geometry is bad enough. I don't need statistics, too. Only 2 decimal places. You can't expect me to remember any more than that with preggo brain!

2. Orange. It would taste like happiness, of course!

3. Both, just in case DD ate all the grapes before the duck got there.

4. I'll probably teach her to make eggs or pancakes first. Then I'll teach her how to saute chicken so she can show DH and say "See dad, it's not that hard."

5. I was going to say the ability to find the good in people, but actually, I think it's more the desire. Everyone has the ability to find the good in people around them, I think some people just don't care to try. Sure, some people make me work a bit harder than others, but to date I've never found anyone who has no admirable or likable traits if I have time to get to know them. I'm not saying I want to invite everyone I meet over for dinner, or that I've never decided it would be safer or healthier (emotionally or otherwise) for me or my family to not allow someone into my personal life, but if I have to interact with someone, I can generally make the best of it.

Ooooh, I want candy that tastes like happiness. You should make me some orange saltwater taffy and send it to me for Christmas. I bet that would taste like happiness.

*Contented Sigh* It's answers like this that make me really really miss being around you.

What makes you worth knowing?

What is more important; A good life, with security, resources, and a great place to live: or, struggling to make ends meet, an developing personal relationships with family and friends, and why?

Which would you prefer to live on for three years; an empty tropical island, with tropical fruits and veggies, and wild game and seafood, and family, aka Swiss Family Robinson without the pirates;
or South Shore of Lake Superior, before the introduction of other people (you have it all to yourself, your DH, and children)?

If you were a fruit, what kind of fruit would you be?

If you were an animal, what kind of animal would you be?

If you were a car, what kind of car would you be?

Sprout parting is such a sad sweet sorrow, has splitting with anyone caused you to gush like a minky whale on heat?

What is your favourite smell and why?

Describe your personality in 3 words?

What would your last supper be if you could choose?

What country would you like to visit and why?

Do I want to know what that phrase means?
