Five Question Friday

Filed under: Five Question Friday — Amy @ 6:00 am
1. What do you enjoy doing the most with your spouse?
Pretty much anything.
He’s a lot of fun to just hang out with.
He makes me laugh all the time, whether we’re doing laundry, eating dinner, doing housework, hanging on the couch, out to dinner, or doing anything else.
When we were dating, we used to say that it was pointless for us to go out, because we’d go to a bar or a party and wind up just hanging out with each other, because we just like each other the best.
Pretty lucky that way.
2. How do you eat your taco? From the top or from the side?
Um, how would you even eat it from the top?
And why would you?
The good stuff is down inside, and you can only get to it, during the first bite, if you eat it from the side.
Or the bottom, but really, that would just be stupid.
3. Have you ever shut off the basement light and ran like a fool because you knew someone was down there and would get you?
How about every time?
4. If you could change one thing about you what would it be and why?
You know, I really don’t know.
I can think of physical things I’d change about myself, but then I always think again.
Sometimes, I’ll be out, and someone with an incredible body will walk by and I’ll think “Wow.  I wish I was built like her.”
And then I remember that THIS body is the body that gave birth to my four babies, and THIS is the body that has gotten me through some tough times, and so, while I may wish I could have the killer bod every now and then, this is me and I’m okay with that.
Personality/Character wise, I think there are also some things that I might wish to change, but again, I’m me and I’m cool with me and my friends are cool with me and Real Man and my monkeys are cool with me and that’s all I need.
5. What age do you think is appropriate to have the “bird and the bees” talk with your children?
I think it depends on the child.
When they start asking questions or hinting around that they are curious about this or that, it’s a good time.
Because if you don’t tell them, someone else will, and their version may be WAY off from the truth.


  1. I love number 4! I agree with the taco how do you eat it from the top. Im still trying to figure that one out HAHA.

  2. My mothers dentist tried to talk her into the expensive white feelings one time — this was in the 80s when they were still shiny silver….

    Her comment was, ‘My children and grandchildren love me just te way I am. I am not trying to impress anyone.’

  3. We should all be happy with ourselves however that is why we want to change.

    • Understandable. I think when I think of “what would you change about yourself” I think of eliminating something and importing something else. I exercise and take care of myself to help improve my body and health, but within the confines of working with what I’ve got. Not sure if that makes any sense. 🙂

  4. Now that my oldest is in kindergarten, I dread what all the someone else’s will tell her. I’m doing my best to always answer her questions or listen to her talk so that she will keep talking and asking as she gets older. Luckily, we haven’t had to have the sex talk yet but I think it’ll be fine when it does come up. My parents never had it with me, I learned all about it in various health classes over the years and I’m pretty thankful for those because the information that other kids come up with is completely ridiculous!

    • Monkey Girl started asking questions last year. She runs with a pretty tame crowd, thank goodness. However, she does ride the bus, so who knows what she might have come home believing if I hadn’t gotten to her first! 🙂

  6. Your answer the #4 is AWESOME! The only thing I’d change is the one thing I’m not responsible for; everything else is part of who I am!

    • 🙂 I’m not exaggerating when I say I run like a maniac out of the basement once the lights are off!

  8. Now that you’ve put the idea in my head, I think I’m going to have to eat a taco from the bottom just once!

    • LOL…let me know how it goes! I thought about doing it, myself, for about a second, then imagined the ridiculous mess I’d make! Of course, I can make a mess eating an apple, so… 🙂
