When you’re alone at home, do you wear shoes, socks, slippers, or go barefoot?
I don’t care who’s around. I wear socks most of the year. Slippers if my feet are cold. Sandals in the summer. Nothing if I feel like it.
Why would anyone care what’s on my feet at home? Foot fetish?
What was your favorite food when you were a child?
I didn’t have a favorite food. I was one of those bad eaters that drive mothers mad. I hated milk — and still do. I hated eggs — and still do. I ate almost nothing and was very thin.
I did like lamb chops, though. Basically, it was the one food I didn’t have to be forced to eat. Otherwise, we had raging battles that involved trying to urge, coerce, or brutally force me to eat. It worked. I’m a solid 30 pounds overweight today.
Moral of the story? Do not force your children to eat. They will eat when they are good and ready. No child has ever starved when food was available.
And neither will your cat or dog. Just saying.
Are you a listener or talker?
I talk, then I listen. But I have to admit, when I am talking to someone who really likes talking, we get pretty enthusiastic. It might sound like a fight, but it isn’t. Really. It’s not.
Favorite thing to (pick one): Photograph? Write? Or Cook?
Probably writing, but taking pictures is a tight second. Cooking used to be at least number three, but now it’s not even on the list. I think reading would be a solid three, but frankly, they are all so closely tied, it’s a photo finish, as it were.
