I totally ripped this off from Karen ’cause I needed something for today. I swear, still a list of thought-provoking posts coming, but who knows when they’ll actually be posted.
1. Do you like blue cheese? Love it in all its stinky glory.
2. Have you ever smoked? Never once.

4. What flavor of Kool Aid was your favorite? Tropical Punch. Funny story: in college, my roommate was a HUGE fan of Tropical Punch Kool Aid and made it all the time. Once when making it (in a roomful of people and thus distracted), she lost count of how much sugar she put in. She thought it was supposed to have 2 cups…put in four…supposed to have one. We saw through time that night.
5. Do you get nervous before doctor appointments? I’ve been to so many freaking doctor appointments that I don’t unless it’s something reallllly bad.

The doorbell rang and I hobbled over to get it…and my left foot, which I couldn’t feel, dragged and I landed on it with my full weight. Snapped the ligaments in my foot. My parents weren’t home (this was in the day before cell phones…the Dark Ages), it was blizzarding out, and I couldn’t walk. I called a friend to come take me to the ER, where they wouldn’t touch me til they could reach my parents (being 17, I was underage). I was on crutches for over 8 weeks. Still twinges from time to time.
