Five Question Friday 2/19/10

My Little Life

1. Have you ever hit an animal with your vehicle?
Oh yes! There have been many over the years, but a few are memorable. I could do a whole post on these, but I will limit myself.
Okay, the sad one first. I made a wrong turn one day on the way to pick up Dakota. There was a little jack russell that came tearing out of a yard after me and I got him with both wheels. The little girl that owned him was about 5th grade and she was hysterical. Broke my heart. I still think about it every time I pass that turn. :(
Over the summer, I ran over several snakes on my way to and from home. I don't generally run over animals on purpose, but the day I came home to find a snake in our driveway, I did. I ran over him and then backed up and did it again a couple of times. Turns out it was a Copperhead so I didn't feel bad at all.
The funniest one though (not at the time) was when I was the second in line to run over a skunk. The car in front of my hit him and I didn't have time to avoid him. I was on the way to meet some friends for dessert. I parked as far away as I could because of the smell, but when we came out, we couldn't even stay around in the parking lot it was SO bad. That smell stayed around for weeks!

2. When you see a string on your clothes do you pull it off or cut if off?
It really depends on how handy the scissors are. If I can get to them pretty easily, I'll cut it off. If not, I'll just pull it. (Don't tell my Mom! Ha!)

3. Did you have your own room or share a room when you were young?
Okay, this is going to make me sound a lot more spoiled than I actually was...but I had TWO rooms. I didn't have any siblings and we had a three bedroom house, so I got both extra rooms. One was my bedroom and one was my toy room.

4. Would you rather wear the same thing for the rest of your life or eat the same thing for the rest of your life?
I can't stand to eat the same thing over and over (which is why leftovers always go to waste at my house), so I will have to go with wearing the same thing for the rest of my life. I don't have that many clothes anyway so it wouldn't be much of a change for me.

5. What was your favorite TV show as a child?
I had lots of favorites! Some of the ones I remember are The Smurfs, He-Man, Double Dare, You Can't Do that on Television, and Kids Incorporated. I'm sure there are more, but I can't think of them right now.

great list. I have to freeze my leftovers because I don't like eating the same thing over and over

Thanks for swinging by my blog! Hitting a skunk would be terrible!

Okay, so I have run over snakes before too, but I don't think they really count as animals... do they??

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by my blog! :)

I've never run over anything before. It freaks my husband out because I've almost gotten into an accident to avoid hitting a squirrel. I don't think I would have a problem running over a snake though.
