I’ve been in a “what to write about” rut for awhile now and while I could go completely batshitcrazy over irressponsible people and why they shouldn’t ever get a pet if they have no intention of taking care of them opting instead to leave them outside in a yard with no food or water including one who is just a tiny puppy and what I’d like to do to them if given the chance…
I’ll do this instead.
A. Age: 32 Sweet mother of god I’m 32. How did that happen?
B. Bed size: King- it’s the only way MrBunny and I could have room to sleep the times we let the dogs sleep with us.
C. Chore you hate: All of them.
D. Dogs: Ginger, Bronco, and Ninja. Who I would never abandon because I realized the responsibility of being a pet owner when I got them.
E. Essential start to your day: Let me wake up on my own. MrBunny has an extremely annoying habit where he thinks that because he’s awake everyone should be awake. Because of this I like to make it really painful for him. I truly believe it is the mature and rational adult in me.
F. Favorite color: Red
G. Gold or silver: Silver
H. Height: 5’5
I. Instruments you play: French horn, trumpet, half-assed piano, eighth-assed organ, and a multitude of other instruments that I can play a scale on and that’s it.
J. Job title: Columnist and general lackey (minus the uniform although I think that needs to be remedied)
K. Kids: Ha!
L. Live: South Georgia
M. Mom’s name: Martha, or as my grandmother would say “Mahthuh”
N. Nicknames: Mandy, Ironbunny, Bunny, Woop Woop
O. Overnight hospital stays: I’m sure there were some when I was a baby/toddler but I think most of my surgeries have all been outpatient. It is so much better to be in your own bed.
P. Pet peeve: Right now it’s people who people who abandon helpless animals because they can’t be bothered to make sure they are taken care of.
Q. Quote from a movie:”I have three rules which I live by: Never get less than 12 hours sleep, never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city, and never go near a lady with a tattoo of a dagger on her hand. Now you stick with that, and everything else is cream cheese.”
R. Right or left handed: Right
S. Siblings: Erin, Ben, and Amy
T. Time you wake up: Whenever I want.
U. Underwear: The non ass-floss variety.
V. Vegetables you dislike: Onions, tomatoes, and peppers.
W. What makes you run late: MrBunny and Ginger. MrBunny waits until the last minute to do anything and Ginger is such a pain to bring inside, she likes to run away.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: I could list them all but we’d be here all day.
Y. Yummy food you make: I make a black-eyed pea cake that’d make you slap your mama.
Z. Zoo: Tie between Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha and of course the St. Louis Zoo.
out of all of this, I want to say, then come visit one of your favorite zoos!!!
great work! im in complete awe to see this dinmesion of yours n that too so well-etched n honest to the core. Today,i feel proud being an avid n dedicated listener of the songs which are written by someone who has such in-depth knowledge of our literature. you’ve made me a very proud person today!THANKS for doing this.
I think you need to get your “uniform” from Dat’s Wassup. I bet they have fabulous fashions.
Once upon a time you had another nickname, The Kid. However once you got taller than me that sort of faded. In addition, I always wonder how my brother and I have always pronounced Martha the correct way when Mother did indeed say “Mahthuh”. Although like my niece and anyone else who knew my mother well we all teased her about the way she said “Mahthuh”. LoL
