Feast One Hundred & Ninety
Appetizer - When someone smiles at you, do you smile back?
Absolutely. Usually I'm smiling at them first, even. At least presenting a pleasant face. I'll never understand the people that decide to go through life as if at any moment they're going to be taken out back and beaten. People will almost always be nice to you if you're nice to them, or give them the opportunity not to worry you're going to bite their head off.
Soup - Describe the flooring in your home. Do you have carpet, hardwood, vinyl, a mix?
We have beige carpet in the living room and Brainyboy's bedroom that replaced the original bluish carpet when we moved in. Unfortunately, after 2 kids and 4 cats it still looks a bit peakish in spots. There's parquet in the entry way that had to be replaced a few years ago, and linoleum in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry room. The garage is floored with sod and that's where we grow mushrooms. Upstairs is all the original blue carpet, and linoleum in the bathrooms.
Ok, I made up that part about the sod and the mushrooms in the garage. It's actually astroturf and we rent it out to minor league football teams to practice.
Salad - Write a sentence with only 5 words, but all of the words have to start with the first letter of your first name.
Boy, black bats barely bite!
Main Course - Do you know anyone whose life has been touched by adoption?
I grew up with a few friends who were adopted. Some couples at our church have adopted kids from overseas - one a while back from Romania, and another adopted three kids from South America. Nobody in my immediate or extended family was adopted, or has adopted kids that I know of. Not counting as part of marrying into a family with kids already, and "adopting" them as your own.
Dessert - Name 2 blue things.
Sky - a painfully deep blue of an autumn day.
Jeans - what I wear to work every Friday.
