55 things...

...about me.

1. The phone rings; whom do you want it to be?
My brother Eric. We usually have quite a few laughs.

2. When shopping at the grocery store, do you return your cart?
Yes. In fact, I always strategically park near the outdoor rack so I don’t have to walk too far to return it.

3. If you had to kiss the last person you kissed, would you?
Since it was my gal, yes.

4. Do you take compliments well?
I’m getting better.

5. Do you play Sudoku?
What’s that?

6. If abandoned alone in the wilderness, would you survive?
No matter where I go I’m never alone, if ya know what I mean!

7. Do you like nipple rings?
Ewwww, no.

8. Did you ever go to camp as a kid?
A few times, yes. My first ever camp was at a campground near the St. Croix River. The boys bathroom didn’t have the dividers between the stalls.

9. If a sexy person were pursuing you, but you knew he/she were married what would you do?
Respectfully say ”Get lost. I’m married.”

10. Could you date someone with different religious beliefs than you?
Depends on how different. Me being a Pentecostal, I dated a gal who was a Lutheran (and she’s now my wife). I could never date an atheist.

11. Do you like to pursue or be pursued?
Being married, I don’t pursue. And I would probably be incredibly uncomfortable if I were being pursued.

Content, relaxed, full.

13. Do any songs make you cry?

15. Do you know how to shoot a gun?
Not yet, but I plan on learning.

16. If your house were on fire, what would be the first thing you grabbed?
Assuming the family was out safely, it would have to be our brood of pets.

Since I’m excited about where life is going right now, I would say no.

23. Any secret admirers?
If they’re secret, how would I know?
