Five Question Friday

Filed under: Five Question Friday,Uncategorized — Amy @ 6:00 am

1. Would you go to your high school reunion?

I would and I have…twice.

I hit our 15 and our 20.

It was nice, in that all of that high school drama nonsense was gone.

Everyone was genuinely happy to see everyone else and it was a really nice night.

Well, for the 20th.

The 15th was kinda crappy.

It was at a hotel and I really didn’t enjoy it.

The 20th was at a hotel, also, but Real Man and I decided not to pay.

We went to the local bar, where we knew everyone would wind up, and waited.

A few of our friends wound up showing up there, as well, and we saw people who went there before the reunion and then, basically saw the entire class after the reunion.

Didn’t have to spend a dime and still had the reunion.

Where, of course, Real Man had to introduce people to me who said, “Oh!  Is this your wife?  Introduce me!”

To which Real Man had to respond “Um, this is Amy…she graduated with us, remember?”

Imagine us in high school and guess which one of us was the cool one and guess which one of us was the nerd.

2. What’s something that you’ve recently splurged on; either for yourself or someone else?

I don’t splurge.

I just don’t.

I don’t have the money for it (although, I guess if I did, it wouldn’t be called a splurge) and I don’t really have the desire for it, either, because I get so overcome with guilt when I buy something for myself.

Oh, it does say for someone else.

I guess I didn’t splurge, per se, but the Easter Bunny splurged a little on the Tardis tent he brought the kids.

So even though I am not the Easter Bunny, I’ll count that.

3. How do you handle your child’s fever?

With Tylenol or Advil.

And lots of snuggles.

I’m not a panicker with fever.

I remember, when Monkey Girl was a baby, our doctor saying that kids fevers traditionally get higher than adult fevers so a 101.5 may be scary for an adult, it’s not such a big deal with a kid.

104…that’s high.

But, generally, we hover around the 101.5 mark.

4. What’s the nicest thing to happen to you lately?


5. What is your current favorite song?

It’s a tie:



  1. I just found your blog from Soule Mama. You are so funny. I’ll just say ha ha oggieloves was a splurge. I’m sorry about your childhood bedroom walls and I have a feeling you were the cool one of the couple in HS, only cool doesn’t care.

    • LOL…the cool one was definitely not me, but I am comfortable in my nerdiness. 🙂

  2. Yeah, what is up with 20th reunions costing so much? My 20th was organized by fellow students (unlike the 10th, which was done by the school) and it was held upstairs in a restaurant in Manhattan (the school was in Brooklyn). It cost more per head than my wedding reception, which was also in a Manhattan restaurant. And a the bulk of the cost was going towards open bar instead of food. If I’d wanted to watch these people drink too much on an empty stomach, I would’ve done it in high school. Plus, the organizers decided that we should all donate $50 to the school as part of each ticket price. So yeah, I skipped that one.

    • Wow! All that, PLUS a donation? Nonsense.
