Wow, that one takes me back. Yes. Once. I was heading to work and a cat ran in front of me. I did actually check to make sure a car wasn't behind me and slammed on the brakes. It was raining and the next thing I knew, I was in an inverted position on the side of the road on top of a small tree. Worse, I had hit the dang cat anyway. So I left the car and went looking for the cat, I don't know who was more muddy and bedraggled when I found it but it very clearly needed a vet. I was heartbroken to have injured it and I went knocking on doors with the cat wrapped up in my coat in my arms. Found the owners and they said, "Leave it on the back steps, we have to go somewhere." And off they went. "Over my dead body", thought I. Next I went down the road to a friends house, big guy named Hoss and asked for help getting the car out of the tree and upright. Bless him and his room mate I was back on the road in 10 minutes, pulling pine needles out of the rear view mirror and on the way to a local vet. When I explained what happened and my opinion of the owners, they agreed and assured me they would take care of it and find it a proper home. Gratefully, I went to work, a little late. I actually have a way funnier story about helping an animal someone else hit in front of me, but I'll save that for another day.
2. When you see a string on your clothes do you pull it off or cut if off?
Pull and only resort to scissors if my clothes are unraveling.
3. Did you have your own room or share a room when you were young?
Both. Mostly I shared with my sister on and off for years. Sometimes my parents rented out rooms for extra cash and we would share again. Never had a problem living with my sister.
4. Would you rather wear the same thing for the rest of your life or eat the same thing for the rest of your life?
Too funny, I already pretty much wear the same thing and I am fine with it. My favorite jeans and my black cardigan.
5. What was your favorite TV show as a child?
I don't know really, we didn't watch a lot of TV. We loved the Disney Sunday night movies and The Banana Splits and the Monkees. When Battlestar Galactica came out my sister and I were riveted. I had the bubble gum card stickers all over my headboard.
“A bolt of warmth, fierce with joy and pride and gratitude, flashed through me like sudden lightning. I don’t care about whose DNA has recombined with whose. When everything goes to hell, the people who stand by you without flinching—they are your family. And they were my heroes.” ― Jim Butcher, Proven Guilty
