5) Reba dropped out of Southeastern Oklahoma State University to go to Nashville and pursue a recording career. In that way, she's like the woman she sings about in this week's song. "She's done what she should, should she do what she dares?" Do you ever regret a risk or opportunity you didn't take? As Francis sang, "Regrets, I've had a few." I think we all have. I try not to think about my regrets too much, though. Not productive.
6) Reba's heroine is "dying to try something foolish, do something crazy, or just get away." Does that sound like you? What would you do, just for yourself, if time and money were no object? Really fix this place up! I have such plans, so many daydreams about how I'd redecorate my home. New flooring, new bathroom, new window treatments.
7) Reba recently became a spokesperson for Kentucky Fried Chicken. Whose chicken do you eat most often: Popeye's, Church's, Chick-fil-A or KFC? Popeye's, because it's the most convenient option that's not Chick-fil-A. I refuse to support a company that opposes equal rights for my gay friends, who are dearer to me than family. Also, as a Christian, I am offended by the way Chick-fil-A has (at least in the past) marketed their Christianity. Too often they have sounded like they were saying, "Eat here because we love Christ!" To me, that's selling faith, and I learned in Sunday School how Jesus felt about moneychangers and church. I'm sorry for the mini-rant, but this is a firmly held conviction.
8) In 2001, Reba starred in her own sitcom. On the show, her character is first an administrative assistant and then a real estate agent. Have you ever tried your hand at either of those occupations? If
not, which do you think you would be a better fit for you? I actually did both at once, when I was an admin at a real estate office. It was a second job that I got when I was just out of high school so I could pay for my trip to Europe. I got there at 8:30 on Saturday and Sunday, opening the door, turning on the lights, making coffee and manning the phones until the agents -- who wanted to sleep in -- made it to the office. I got to leave at 12:30. I liked it. It didn't pay very much at all, but it was low stress. It's the kind of job I'd like to have again, when I retire from advertising.
