Bethany my favorite Ice Cream Mama is hosting this week's Fun Monday.
This is actually the first one I've ever done. Except this one time I tried to participate, but for some reason didn't make it onto the person's list. It was probably because I was late sending it in. But I digress.
Anyway, this week's challenge is a series of fun questions! Enjoy!
What is your favorite word?
I think it would have to be “passed”. Passed is always such a happy word in my life. Like when I get to say, “Hey! I passed my final exam!” or “Thank God that moron passed the Radiological exam and I don’t have to give it to him for the third time!” or “Yeah, I totally passed him on the road, because he was going slowly.” See? All happy.
Now the word, “past”, while sounding the same has a very different meaning and not a good one in my book. Because my past kind of sucks.
What is your least favorite word?
Okay, hands down: Cooter.
In my world, because of a very specific incident, the word cooter stands for a part of the female anatomy.
Here is the story behind it:
Jason, as a fifteen year old boy, moves to North Carolina and enrolls at Hee-Haw High school. As he had been enrolled in private, Episcopal school since first grade, this was rather traumatic. However, he somewhat easily makes friends and befriended a young man who asked him one day,
“Do you like cooter?”
To which he responded, “The mechanic on Dukes of Hazard?”
Yes. He really did say that.
That is the best story ever. EVER.
Also, why I hate the word “cooter”.
What turns you on (creatively, spiritually or emotionally)?
Creatively: I suppose it would be the positive reinforcement I get. I guess I could be all cool and say that I write for myself and for my own joy or whatever, but frankly, that would be just a big stupid lie. I write because I like to make other people laugh. I get something out of it.
Spiritually: The joy I get out of sharing with other people. There is something very special about being surrounded by a group of people who feel the same way you do and are happy about it. You don’t get that very often in everyday life.
Emotionally: Safety. Feeling loved and safe.
What turns you off?
Feeling pressure. Pressure of any kind makes me feel uncomfortable and angry.
What is your favorite curse word?
Which one I use most often or my favorite? I think they might be different.
I tend to say, “hell” a lot. Is that even considered a curse word?
Most of the words I say are not curses, but probably should be. Like douchenozzle. That’s just not nice, I don’t care who you are.
What sound or noise do you love?
Warning: Cheesiest response of all time.
The sound of my kids laughing.
What sound or noise do you hate?
The “critical stop” noise on my computer. Because it generally means that I’ve done something moronic.
What profession, other than your own, would you like to attempt?
No, just lying. I’d really like to work in a nature center and teach children about plants, animals, and the environment.
I think I’d have to get over my fear of birds, turtles, and otters first though. Crap.
What profession would you not like to attempt?
Grave-digger. Ugh, just…no. Just no.
Also, funeral director. You are a better man/woman than I if you can do that job, and thank God for you and your service and all, but I could NOT do it.
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
When God sees me he’s going to be all like, “WHASSSUP!?”
N o, seriously. He will. We’re peeps like that.
As that song, “Tennessee” says,
“Although you’re superior over me, we talk to each other in a friendship way.”
Also, he totally told me to go back to Tennessee.
I THINK THAT SONG IS ABOUT ME. Holy crap! Thanks Arrested Development!
