C Is For Curious

I've seen this little meme going around so, in case you are new here, or if you are just curious, here's a little more about me!  My friend, Crys, answered it last week!  You should stop in and tell her "Hi" too!

I give you money and send you into the grocery store to pick up 5 items. You can only pick one thing from the following departments. What do you pick?

Produce: Bell peppers (orange/yellow/red)
Bakery: A fancy bread with all kinds of grains!
Meat: Um...you probably don't know this, but I am freaked out by raw meat.  But I have handled chicken breasts with varied success, so probably that.
Frozen Foods: Ice Cream
Dairy: Cheese

Let's say we're heading out for a weekend getaway. You're only allowed to bring 3 articles of clothing with you. So, what's in your bag?
Well, your question seems to be flawed because there's no way I am going somewhere with only three articles of clothing!  I don't leave the house for a regular day with less than three articles of clothing.  But, if I had to choose, I would say jeans, a t-shirt and flip-flops

If I was to listen in on your conversations throughout the day, what 5 phrases or words would I be most likely to hear?
  • "Please keep your hands to yourself"
  • "Really?"
  • "Lilah, stop it!"
  • "So, do you understand what I am saying?  Or are you just staring at me for fun?"
  • "Run!  Push all the way to the line!"  (track coach)

What three things do you find yourself doing every single day? What things would put you in a bad mood if you didn’t get to do them?

Setting my alarm for a half hour before I have to get up so I can afford to snooze, eating breakfast (which I used to rarely do), and checking Facebook.  (Sad, but true.)

If I didn't get to have an hour or so to wind downat the end of the day, time to check my blog, or a chance to talk with my mom or one of my friends during the day, I tend to be in a bad mood.

If you had a three hour block where no one was around, what 5 things might we find you doing?
  1. Watching movies
  2. Checking Pinterest or my blog
  3. Reading
  4. Scouting new music on iTunes
  5. Taking a nap!

You are headed to the zoo, but it looks like it might start raining. What three exhibits do you rush to see first?

This would be tragic because I love the zoo, and always have!  We went there all the time growing up! At the zoo closest to me, I would want to see the giraffes, the bears, and the gorillas.

What four (live) television shows do you wish would gift you free tickets?
  1. Ellen 
  2. The Voice
  3. Dancing With the Stars 
  4. So You Think You Can Dance

If someone offered to buy you a triple dipper ice cream cone, what three flavors would you choose?

I’d pick dark chocolate, strawberry, and rocky road!

Imagine you lost your purse at a retail store. When you go to pick it up, the cashier asks you to name five things that are inside it to prove it is yours. What do you say?
  1. Black and pink floral pouch with a pink zipper from my SIL 
  2. Green faux gator wallet
  3. Pink polka dot makeup bag with a cupcake on the zipper 
  4. "Shopping Is My Cardio" notebook
  5. 1000 ink pens loose in the bottom

Imagine you are at a job fair. You’re asked what careers you would like to pursue. Assuming you had the talents for said careers, how would you respond? (List four.)
  1. Singer
  2. Writer (of what, I don't know)
  3. Interior Designer 
  4. Psychologist 
If you could speak with your 16 year old self, what four things would you say?

1.  You are going to be a teacher, no matter how hard you try to say you're not.  And it will be one of the best decisions you will ever make.
2.  You aren't fat now, but you should probably get into working out.
3.  Your life is not going to turn out how you plan, but that's what makes it beautiful.
4.  Don't worry.  You won't peak in high school.  Your best years are yet to come.


  1. Great questions - and I love your answers!

  2. Interesting post, enjoyed reading it!

  3. I love this!! I like the question things and love reading others answers!!

  4. Hi! A-to-Z visitor here!

    Now that was a fun post! Great concept for "C".

    And you know what? Three of your four career choices also work extremely well as avocations. Singers sing, writers write, and decorators decorate, even if they also gotta do other things to pay da bills. If you feel it in you, let it out! ;^)

    Have a wonderful alphabetical month!

    1. I do write and sing! I wish I had time to really think about interior design, because I do like it! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Your daily conversation is... um... intriguing! One can only wonder..!! If I could speak to my 16 year old self, I'd probably be saying "no, no, don't do that... really!" a lot. :)

    1. I feel like my daily conversation needs a little explanation! #1, #2 and #4 are all directed at my students. Particularly #1 and #4 because middle schoolers are constantly touching one another in an effort to prove who is the most annoying and you haven't felt truly awkward until 20 of them are staring at you after a lesson!

      As for #3, Lilah the Cat is my furry roommate. She's frequently bad.

      And laughing at the 16 year-old thing. I probably should have included that sometimes it's just okay to shut your mouth instead of say everything you think!

  6. This was fun! :) I might have to steal:
    "So, do you understand what I am saying? Or are you just staring at me for fun?"

    1. It's 100% true! And it was a lot of fun!

  7. Ooooh. I think that is the best set of "questions" I've seen in a long time. It was nice getting to know you!
