My uncle once: taught my 44-year-old father how to drive.
Never in my life: have I felt tall enough.
High school was: horrible, then better, then worse, then fabulous.
I will never forget: how my husband stroked my cheek the night we met.
I once met: Princess Diana. Okay, it was only a dream. But it was at a beautiful garden party, right there at Buckingham Palace. And we met many times after that. Okay, those were also dreams. So, really, I once met Richard M. Nixon when I attended a church service at the White House.
Once at a bar: I let an actor pour me a margarita and quickly learned that tequila was not my friend.
By noon I’m usually: wondering where the morning went.
Last night: I had a vivid dream in which my husband’s brother stole a family heirloom from our house.
If only I had: the answers to the questions.
Next time I go to church: it will be piano lesson time for the Little Princess and bulletin-writing time for me.
When I turn my head left: I see talking heads discussing Michael Jackson.
When I turn my head right: I see the now-empty glass I’ve been filling with crushed ice all day.
You know when I’m lying when: Now, why would I want to tell you that? I would lose my advantage.
Every day I think about: how wondrous it is to have three children turn out so well despite divorce, remarriage, loss of three beloved grandparents, moves and changes of schools.
By this time next year: I pray that I will have a clearer sense of what God wants me to do next.
I have a hard time understanding: the ruling party.
If I ever go back to school I’ll: write a big paper about the anointing woman/women.
You know I like you when: I let down my metaphorical hair.
If I won an award the first person I’d thank is: my godmother.
My ideal breakfast is: pancakes with a fried egg on top and real maple syrup, with a really fine cup of coffee.
A song I love, but do not have is: Is there such a thing now that I have iTunes?
If you visit my hometown, I suggest: a visit to the Children’s Museum of Virginia. I’m sure you would especially enjoy the trains. I know I did last time I was there.
Why won’t anyone: turn the heat down, before I expire?
If you spend the night at my house: you will surely leave with dog hair on your person.
I’d stop my wedding for: a member of the wedding party in a state of collapse (this almost came true on the way up Mount Chocorua).
The world could do without: religious intolerance.
I’d rather lick the belly of a cockroach than: handle a snake. ::shudders::
Paper clips are more useful than: duct tape (don’t tell my husband I said this!).
If I do anything well: it’s to help others find what they do well and encourage them to pursue it.
And by the way: They don’t always want to pursue it.
The last time I was drunk: I was a fun dinner date, but fast asleep as soon as we got home.
