Pop Quiz - Glitter Globe Style

1.      State your birth order. (Oldest)

7.      If you had to incorporate one food into every meal for the rest of your life, what would you pick?  (Crispin Apples. I’m the Bubba Gump of Crispin Apples. “Apple oatmeal, apple slices with peanut butter, apple pie, apple crisp, apple turnovers, apple stir-fry, caramel apples, apple ‘n squash soup, apple with quinoa, apple ice-cream, apples…”)

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.)

29.  Do you like cars?  (No. But my Time Travel Jeep is fun. Did you know people who drive Jeeps wave at each other on the road?)

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!)
