Sunday Stealing

Sunday Stealing: The Semi Charmed Meme, Part One

1. My uncle once: had a tortoise named Dog. It grew so big that he donated it to the Morton Arboretum. My uncle is no longer with us, but Dog may be. Tortoises can live to be over 100 years old!

2. Never in my life: have I smoked anything.

3. When I was five: I brought my Lassie dog with me wherever I went.

4. High School was: hell.

5. I will never forget: seeing Sir Paul at Wrigley Field last summer.

6. I once met: Bruce Springsteen. I know, I know. I have told this story online at least three times and you may be sick of it by now. If you still crave the details, here they are.

7. There’s this girl I know who: is in loooooove for the first time. I just saw my college-age niece's new Facebook pic. You can see it in her eyes as she gazes up at the camera and plays with her hair, her photographer thinks she's pretty and she revels in it. I am so happy for her.

8. Once, at a bar: I had a beer. I'm sorry, I got nothing else.

9. By noon, I’m usually: either ferociously busy or bored. That's the way my workdays seem to go.

10. "Last night: is the night I will remember you by. When I think of things we did, it makes me want to cry." For everyone who's not Bud, that's Sir Paul from Help!

11. If only I had: the freedom to reword this, I'd change it to, "My head I'd be scratching while my thoughts were busy hatching if I only had a brain."

12. Next time I go to church: I must thank God for my mother's recovery.

13. Jonathan Frid: was both cool and achingly sensitive and I hated how Angelique was so vindictive toward him. And he deserved so much better than that drippy Victoria Winters. (Yes, I was a fan. Big time.)

14. What worries me most: is that my oldest friend just won't do what it takes to get her daughter back on track.

15. When I turn my head left, I see: my living room window.

16. When I turn my head right, I see: my dining room table.

17. You know I’m lying when: .... I don't know how to answer this one. If I have any "tells," I'm not aware of them.

18. What I miss most about the 80s: My waist.

19. If I was a character in Shakespeare, I’d be: Katherina.

20. By this time next year: I hope my cat Reynaldo will finally be a good boy.
