Five for Friday

1. Have you ever forgotten your child in a store or at school?
No, I never have. My sister got locked inside the church building when she was about three. She wasn't left, but she was "lost". That event may have left its mark on me.

2. Where did you go on your very first date? (Like...first first, not first with your spouse or current significant other!)
It was so insignificant that I barely remember it. We went to some kind of a church  teen event.

3. What's your "silly" fear? (We're not talking water and heights.)
Of course I don't have any silly fears. I am afraid of getting lost while I'm driving somewhere new, and that my GPS  will be invaded with aliens and intentionally take me far, far away from my destination, and I will never be heard from again.

4. Confrontation: do you cause it, deal with is as it comes, or run far far away?
I've never met a confrontation that I felt the need to deal with. I will run far, far away and eventually land in "Forgetful Land". 

5. Wood floors or carpet?
Right now we have carpet. Light carpet that is now dirty carpet. Why do they even make light colored carpet. It's a nightmare waiting to happen.


  1. My youngest daughter got locked in the restroom at the daycare when she was about four. The door accidently got closed and the lock stuck. They had to take the hinges off of the door to get it open....THEN about five years later it happened again!! We were at a wedding reception at a place in Houston that was built to look like an old hacienda and they had used a bunch of old Mexican doors. They got stuck in the bathroom (at least together this time) and because it was so loud, no one heard them beating on the door. I went to look for them and found them and was able to get the door open but my youngest is still scarred from that and she's 21 years old. She will always make sure we know where she is so we can look for her if she doesn't appear in a reasonable length of time.

  2. Ooh, I think my very first date would make a pretty decent blog story...

  3. My silly fear is that I have an irrational paranoia about being followed when I drive at night... ugh, drives me crazy!!

    And ooooo - I so do NOT do confrontation either.

  4. Stopping by from the 5QF! Your GPS answer reminded me of my own GPS--sometimes she seems to be on crack! Gonna write a blog post about it someday...
    Have a nice weekend!

  5. Oh mom, you're so witty. Love the confrontation answer.
