Five Question Friday

Filed under: Five Question Friday — Amy @ 8:51 am

1. If you had to give 1 million dollars to just one person (not your spouse), who would it be and why?

Wow.  That’s tough.

I’m answering this question last because it is a hard one to answer.

Would I give it to Monkey Girl with the stipulation that she must divide it equally between she and her brothers when they all hit a certain age?

Would I give it to someone who needs it the most, as in one needy person or would I give it to someone who could help the most people with it, like a philanthropist?

I hate the “just one person” part of the question, because I’d love to give it to a school district or I’d really love to give it to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

I really don’t know.

I have a feeling this is one I’ll never need to worry about, but it is interesting to think about.

2. What bathroom stall do you typically go to FIRST? 

The last one.

That way, no one is walking by, casually looking to see if there is someone in there.

I’m an observer of human behavior, and in every crowded public bathroom, in which I’ve ever been, I watch the women cooly look out of the corner of their eyes through the slots in the door (because they are never fully private) to see if someone is in there.


I just bend over and look for feet.

I seem to be in the minority, which is why I take the last stall.

3. How do you prefer to shop: In-store or online?

That’s a hard one.

I like to shop online because it frees up my time.

I don’t have to drive anywhere, I don’t have to take four kids with me, I don’t have to change out of my jammies.

However, I like to shop in stores because I like to see what I am buying, as I’ve been tricked before by pictures online and have been disappointed with what showed up at my home.

I guess I’ll go with online being the preference, however, in certain circumstances, you gotta get to the store.

4. What’s the weather like in your neck of the woods?

It’s been windy, it’s been snowy, it’s been rainy and it’s been darn cold.

Nothing out of the ordinary for winter.

Just yucky.

I’m ready for a real snowstorm with a lot of good packing snow so the kids can go out and play in it without it disappearing in their hands.

That’s winter.

5. Do you own a pair of Tom’s and what do you think? Overrated, underrated or about right?

I do not, and while I like the idea of them donating a pair to a child in need every time someone buys a pair, I think the shoe, itself, is overrated.

I also have flat feet, and have very, very few pairs of flat shoes because they hurt my feet, so that could certainly play in to my feelings about Toms.


  1. We also have the yuckyest weather here, so typical winter – and I cant stand winterweather! I miss summer and sun!
    I`ve added your blog to my blogroll, and look forward to visit you again.

  2. It was hard for me to decide who to give the money too as well!! Online shopping is so convenient especially with kiddos!

    • Sometimes the questions are so straightforward and others, I think and think and think and just can’t come up with an answer!

  4. Stopping by from 5QF–snowy here too, but I don’t mind if we don’t get any more snowstorms-I don’t like to complain, but I really do prefer warmer weather. We just had a big one!
    Happy New Year!

    • Hi Josanne! I prefer the warmer weather, myself, but since we’re stuck in winter, I like to go big or go home. 🙂
