26.  Do you like sitting beside children on airplanes?  (Yes, and I answer all their questions. You might not want to sit by us.)

28.  Can you be trusted to guard a child’s chocolate Easter rabbit?  (Dark or milk? Okay, fine, no.)

45.  What is your favorite game?  (Water spit-tag. You will do everything in your power not to get tagged out.)

46.  Do you believe confession is good for the soul?  (I did it. I’m sorry.)

47.  Do you hold the door open for the person behind you in public?  (No. I slam it shut and hold it so they can’t follow me in.)

48.  Do cemeteries creep you out?  (No. I like them immensely.)

49.  If you died right now, what would you want your headstone to say?  (You’re next.)

I do all the talking around here. How fair is that? I'd like to take a peek inside your sparkly head too. So I came up with this in-depth questionnaire. You can answer any of the questions that you want to answer, or all of them,* or none at all. That's the way we roll here in The Glitter Globe, rules shmules, tests optional. I'd just like to get to know you. (You likely realized my answers are the ones in parentheses.) If you do answer, feel free to color outside the lines. I know I sure do.
 
*The first two people who answer ALL the questions will win an Epic Slinky Dog.  Just be sure to leave me contact information. (And follow my blog, please!)

  3. HEY, NO FAIR!! I thought it was only 20. My Slinky Dog is here on my writing desk - so I get to pick and choose!

    1) 2nd
    2) Hell yeah, I had to drop out of college so my parents could pay for my older and younger sibs.
    6) I'd take marathoning. But I played O-line. The body type isn't a good fit.
    8) Carrot cake! OMG - the holiday party I was at tonight featured melt-in-your-mouth superliciousness!
    10) Empathy. Walk a mile in someone's moccassins before you condemn.
    14) Rule: Leave the campsite just a little nicer than you found it.
    19) Dancer. I was a brilliant singer, and I'm still unable to find many rooms where I am not the best voice, but it would be nice to do pases-de-doux with my daughter.
    24) Do it all over? Yes, I would have gotten better musical training early, so I would have gotten to the right place in enough time.
    26) Kids-airplanes? Yes, as long as it's 2-across, and I can give then the window. That plan is foiled if the wing is in the way. It's also foiled if there are clouds :-(
    44) Superpower? Freeze time!
