1 – Do you *snort*? Not really, but I laugh so hard sometimes that I cry. Or become in danger of peeing my pants.
2 – Our friend, has a nickname and it’s Daffy. What’s your nickname? Shell. Shocked, aren’t you? Only my closest friend call me that. I don’t introduce myself like that, except in the blog world. Hubs calls me “Peanut.” Because I
am was so tiny when we first met. He also calls me “Button.” He used to say “Why do they say ‘cute as a button’? Buttons really aren’t that cute.” And then started calling me “Button.”
3 – Do you know sign language? The universal kiss off sign, of course. And I can make wild gestures that my boys know how to interpret, like “Go to bed,” “Stop,” and “You’re going to get a spanking if you don’t stop.”
4 – What’s a sample convo from your hood? I actually have a funny story from a parent teacher conference where the mom looked me right in the eye and said, “My son’s problem is that he suffers from I.A.S.” I looked at her, confused, until she informed that meant “He’s Ignorant As Shit.” Only, in her heavy southern accent, shit is pronouned “sheeeeeeeiiit.”
5- Do you sleep with electronic devices – i.e. laptop, Blackberry, iPhone, etc? I always keep my blackberry right beside the bed. So I can easily tell what time it is. I also use it as an alarm clock. I have to admit that it’s hard to ignore that flashing message light, even if I see it when I roll over at 3am.
