CindyDiane, as an open tag to anyone who reads her column, wanted everyone to do their own version of Alphabet Soup. Is beyond me to understand why anyone would want an answer to some of the questions, but here goes:
A - Availible/single? – No! I’m so married that it will take death to stop it, and even in that event I don’t think I would feel free or single.
B - Best Friend – Earl M. and Quartermaster Chuck!
C - Cake or Pie? – Pies – apple, pecan, coconut, peach, but NEVER mince meat.
D - Drink of choice – Diet Coke – Being born and raised in Atlanta and being a diabetic (Type 2) I had no other choices. Bud Light occasionally or Jack Black sometimes. Well, a little scotch can be enjoyed a couple of times a year.
E - Essential everyday item – Toilet paper.
F - Favorite color - Blue.
G - Gummy bears or Worms? – Worms! They make excellent fish bate and bears are just too big and ornery to deal with.
H - Hometown – I was born in Atlanta, but I don’t go there unless I absolutely have too.
I - Indulgence – Hamburgers!
J - January or February? January or February what? They are both cold and miserable.
K - Kids and names – Me = 1, Marni; Sweet Tea = 2, Dr. Amber and Steven.
L - Life Is Incomplete Without – NASCAR and porn movies.
M - Marriage date – Don’t remember the first one, but Sweet Tea and I were married on Dec. 31, 1993.
N - Number of siblings – Seven – two with us and five gone on ahead.
O - Oranges or apples – Tangerines
Q - Favourite quote - "Until the moral improves the beatings will continue."
R - Reason to Smile – J-man and Bug.
S - Season, Fall or Spring? – Fall! Not long after the Fall you can Spring back up.
T - Tag 3 or 4 people – CindyDiane’s comment is good enough for me. If you haven't been tagged with this one, please consider yourself tagged and let me know in comments you are doing it, so we can all come check it out.
U - Unknown fact about me - I once was a preacher.
V - Veggie that I don't like – Boiled okra. Fried – yum, yum.
W - Worst habit- Peeing in the back yard when I take the dogs out.
X - X-rays – All of me. Why not take (e-rays of) all of me.
Y - Your Fav Food - Hamburgers.
Z - Zodiac sign – Libra – the Scales. I seek balance in life, like, as long as everyone agrees with me I am happy.
NOTE: There was no "P" sent so I didn't add one. If I had it would have been Position - Doggie style so we both can watch wrastling at the same time.
