I'm off to Patrice's for a Chat on the Farmhouse Porch. It has taken me a long time to get there, because the roads are so bad. First major snowstorm of the winter here in Utah. The skiers are happy, but the commuters are less so. .
1. Please tell me the three most valuable things you learned as a child or young person.
That being a "drama queen" is annoying in a child, but it makes you a really great English as a Second Language teacher as an adult; that learning to navigate an argumentative supper table crowded with older siblings is a valuable skill for the future; that wearing black tights with black shoes will elongate the look of your legs.
2. Do you participate in Black Friday or Cyber Monday?
NO! NO! A thousand time NO! I hate to shop at all! And I try to do as little gift exchanging as possible for Christmas.
3. Do you pray?
No. I'm an atheist. Sometimes I wish I did, but I don't.
4. Have you ever been invited to any parties to celebrate Christmas or New Year?
Yes! I love parties! I love attending them, and throwing them as well. Last year, we went to an open house on Christmas Eve, had friends over for Christmas brunch and threw a party for New Years as well.
5. Have you ever owned cowboy boots or a cowboy hat? Or a cowboy?
No, to all of those (and a sigh of regret about the cowboy...) I would like a pair of cowboy boots. Maybe someday.
